How do you get going again after pregnancy?
TT - that sounds a horror, hope you are all on the mend soon, not nice at all!
Brookie - yes it's pretty awful when they first start daycare. It DOES get better but takes a while, you have to build up immunity to other childrens germs besides your own!! Is never helped by the fact you are tired etc etc
No tree or advent calenders (naughty mummy!!) - that's my job to sort tomorrow (well the calenders anyway), that said, kids have obviously been far too busy to notice this weekend - phew!
So busy weekend all round - school Christmas fair yesterday so kids desperate to spend their pocket money on tat they have made and other peoples tat and I was helping in the kitchen (mince pies and tea/coffee for all). Hubby out for bike ride yesterday afternoon and gave me a huge scare when he got back - had a frozen arm which cramped up so needed to make sure he wasn't having a heart-attack!!!! Then I got to finally see Skyfall last night with some other friends while hubby babysat. Sooooo glad I got to see it as I LOVED it, not least because Daniel Craig is HOT, but just thought it all was fab!
This morning 15 miles along the coastal path - blimmin freezing but beautiful and at least temperature froze all the sand. All the Eider ducks are arriving and I love watching them bob around in Burghead harbour. Funny looking at my splits, used music this morning for a change ... The Best of The Eagles and Enigma kept my pace nice and steady, whereas Foo Fighters on the homeward leg really pumped it up so finished faster than started. So 43 miles this week and avg 8.5mm for the 15-miler, pretty flat route though ...
S had party this afternoon so rushing round getting her back from rugby and up to that and then hubby departed for airport while I was collecting her so feel I hardly saw him this weekend Home on Thurs eve this week though so that is better for all.
JG - great running pics on FB, nice to see where people do their running
Paddle boarding sounds fun H - ebay?
Treadmill is up and working too
Did you enter Lotte?
JT - hope all well with you - are you IMPROVING?????
Had a great run in the sunshine this morning so felt I had to share the pics CC . I go there most Sunday mornings if we're not doing something specific with the kids. I was undecided as to whether I was going this morning, but when I woke up and looked out of the window at the gorgeous sunshine I knew I had to! Used Runtastic on my phone instead of Garmin for a change, but it kept losing the GPS signal so only logged 4 miles when I did about 5.5! It was quite slow as I kept stopping for photos .
I've decided my right hip is quite unstable and that's been affecting my back and knee on that side, so my main aim at the mo is not to let it collapse when I'm running rather than running fast. Think I managed that this morning as that side feels a lot stiffer than the left side already, but not painful. Fingers crossed.
And I weighed a little bit less this morning .
TT - poor you, I hate tummy bugs like that. Hope it passes quickly.
CM - totally see where you're coming from re money, just make sure you do have enough to live off at the mo without stressing or burning yourself out. We just have a CTF each for ours and don't contribute anything . My mum puts in £10 a month though.
Had an Avon party last night which was good fun - I was very worried only 1 person was going to turn up but in the end 6 did which was a relief! Shopping and tea at Meadowhall (shopping centre) on Wed - stupidly looking forward to it!
And fantastic running Lotte, really in awe of you!
Sorry been reading but forgotten everything. I'm a Celebrity has finished so I will have to get a life again .
Thanks CC! Reading but not getting much time to post! Film sounds great
TT - good to hear from you, sounds horrid, I've been hit with similar bugs before too, just the pits. How is the boy you used to mind now?
RF - you are good! Looking forward ot getting out again my self soon.
EF - hope you're still feeling sick if you know what I mean????!!!!!
Hoggle - you get the sickness quota when they do daycare, then they start pre-school and then there's the drama of school!
Trying ot remember so much but failing! I am lots better, back to work tomorrow. It was like someone flicked a switch mid last week. Peak flow is still down, which given the amount of drugs I'm on is a little bit of a worry, but I have spirometry in a week or so and then the consultant 2nd Jan. Hopefully this will kick everything back into touch!
Great work RF. Sounds like a busy weekend.
Boo to the lurgies. Get well soon Tangy and Brookie.
Good job on the running CC. Busy weekend for you too. I did enter and place has been confirmed!! Yay ! so yes if you are free that weekend I may very well take you up on that offer of support. Hubby not over the moon but he'll come around. My inlaws were here this afternoon and the Glenmore 24 was mentioned, "24 thats not far for you" ! I didn't tell them it was hours not miles!!
Been trying to get on top of the Christmas shopping now that I don't have my run waste every thought on! Struggling to afford it. Sigh. Hard to explain why Santa can bring xboxes, 3D ds, laptops and ipads to some kids... but not ours.
Feeling pretty good today. Quads are fine and the toilet and stairs are no problem, but my hip flexor is still sore. Had a lie in until 7am when I was woken not by kids but hubbys alarm which he forgot to turn off, grr. I got up and made us a cuppa in bed then he let me lounge in bed while he did breakfast. Took me through breakfast in bed which was slightly ruined when Cameron managed to knock a huge glass of OJ over our bedroom carpet! Tonight I have done a 2 hour stint at the ironing board though so normal service resumed.
Blimey TT, that's shocking, and horrific for you and the family. (())
