How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Vixo - maybe you're in need of some headspace? Maybe just put some kit on and do 5 minutes! Hope all is well and I is better.
Never thought about electric toothbrushes. We're due a trip to the dentist, we're fairly good I think! TT - we also have to do a headlock, always fun!
Anj - how many weeks are you now? Sounds like you've done well! That so funny about L!
MM - did hubby get back ok?! Sounds like your mum is about as good as mine. She had histrionics about how hard she'd worked to make a dinner for hubby's birthday. My sister had cooked Christmas dinner for her, and we prepped the veg for hubby's birthday, dad did the potatoes. I went to Waitrose for the pudding. So she put the beef in the oven and cooked the red cabbage, I made the gravy, big sis and I set the table and took the veg. Remind me how much she did?! She was on about inviting all the neighbours round for New Years Day, couldn't help myself, I told her if she found Jon's b'day too much, she was going to find that far too difficult!
EF - was is you who couldn't go to the supermarket with Lou when pg? I seem to remember having a conversation about barfing in the aisles with someone at the time! Shucks to not being able to help with the loo, being pg really can have its uses!
CC - sounds an interesting run in the dark! Don't envy you having to get back to reality, it's bad enough anyway...
CM - deep breath... Think that's the only way round it. It's them who are missing out. Doesn't necessarily make it easier though.
Well we're finally back home, with no visitors. hurrah! hubby fuming with his parents as they unplugged the Sky box while we were away, so all the things he was recording didn't happen! They have this bizarre notion that the house will burn down if you leave things plugged in.... Amongst other junk, they are not staying in this house alone again!
In spite of mum and her histrionics, we had a lovely few days away. We even got a pass out last night so went to watch Skyfall and had a meal out. Get us, twice in one week we get a babysitter!
Downside today, my sore throat has now gone pussy.... Aaaggghhh! Ears are really sore too, so, being very naughty, I'm going to use the course of antiobiotics that I was given the day I ended up in hospital as I recognise the symptoms, and I'll be flat out in 24 hours if I don't start taking something. Hopefully this might knock this heinous illness on the head once and for all!
(Oh, and can't get through to chest clinic re my appt on Wednesday, is it normal practice not to take inhalers before a spirometry test does anyone know? My Seretide has what is effecitvely a long lasting reliever in it and apparently can affect the results or so I was told last time I went. It's first thing worst case scenario so could take it once I got there if not necessary. Sorry, almost talking ot myself !).
Sorry, *practise* not *practice*!
I have a 15month old daughter who has been constantly ill and I've been ill since October with her various viruses which has meant my return to running has ended just as I was getting into my marathon training. I'm struggling to get out for runs when I'm constantly ill but, hoping I'm fit and healthy from now onwards, I really need to restart my running. I can't find the RW Beginners Marathon Schedule I used back in 2008 online anyway. Does anyone know where I can find the RW schedule or in the absence of one, where I can find any decent beginners Marathon schedule even if I have to walk/run the damn thing I've applied 6 times for this darn race and I'm buggered if I'm going to waste the place (can't defer as I deferred the 2012 place due to various post c-section issues). Thanks in advance!
Hal higdon beginners? (just google it) or I really like a book called 4 months to a 4 hr marathon which you can buy v cheaply 2nd hand on amazon. It gives lots of schedules from 4 hrs upwards (4, 4.30, 5, 5.30 etc) I have used it twice, and achieved my goals both times. Hope you all stay healthy!
