How do you get going again after pregnancy?
there's an increased risk apparently tho it is still meant to be under 1% so I've got to hope! time for sleep again. night night .
Oh hoggle that is terrible news . pray the ooperation works. survival pack of practicalities sounds a good idea plus say a couple of books or sth to distract them occasionally.
6.5k of very very hard, muddy xc for me today and absolutely no dieting here!! SW Intercounties, running for Wiltshire at Bicton in Devon.
Fish pie followed by plum crumble and custard for us. Yum! Yum!
63 miles this week in total, cut back week and very pleased I managed to run so hard after 16 miles on thursday. Been selected to run at the National Intercounties now in March in Birmingham. Loved it today, makes me feel young again!!
EF I so feel for you. Keep posting it will help you feel better about the waiting, but sadly it can't help the sickness. The yukkiness is a good sign. I could so not go back to that pregnancy sickness again. Ugghh!
Congratulations MM - awesome work!!
Back to work for me today! Really hoping that al the clubs I work with continue with their holidays for a good while longer as I feel I need to ease back in to work - and the sunshine on the deck is calling my name!! Very hot here at the moment. Spent all morning yesterday at the beach and then retreated home by lunchtime as it was just too hot. The sun is really vicious here so you have to be so careful not to get sunburn! Instead of the pollen count on the weather we have the burn time! Loving living near the beach though!
Spoke to my friend yesterday - she sounds so overwhelmed. The operation is tomorrow so fingers crossed it's successful. Even if it is it's only a temporary measure so he will require a liver transplant, its just a case of whether its in 1 month, 1 year or 10 years. She said that she wished that they anaesthatised (sp) the mother when they put a baby under for an operation! She is trying not to think past the operation I think as it's too much to handle all at once. I feel for her so much! Matilda is testing boundaries big time here and everytime I get annoyed I think of them and pull my head in sharpish!!
EF poor you feeling so rotten! I had a terrible cold/flu when I was about 13 weeks and that combined with morning sickness was horrendous. Are you taking any time off work? Oh for a fast forward button to get past that and the waiting!
Right really must work...... so I am going to measure my run and walks from the weekend!
Welcome Mel! Quite a few super humans on here - I am not one of them!!!
welcome Mel. i am a blob not a superhuman
hoggle - fingers x'd for your friends
sooo tired. 2 nights of sharing a bed with my little starfish. . but was absolutely brilliant weekend. full of friends and cousins and singing, dancing, digging in the sand, walking dogs. just the ticket to end the christmas hols with
and so off to bed. GP appt in the morning as i still can't breathe properly...
Welcome Mel, we are all lovely on here and no-one will be rude. I used to do long runs at weekend early in the morning - used to kill me getting up as I am so NOT a morning person but it worked as didn't impact on rest of family for the weekend, now I have both kids at school I can usually fit my long runs in during the week around work etc.
Well done MM, fabulous achievement, and the selection too. Can we have less of the 'old' from you though please, it's not like you ARE old or anything ... there are a few of us on here that have a few more years that you for sure!
Hoggle - that's just awful for your friend
EF - hope you are surviving the grims.
Finally back this evening from tour of Great Britain ... bless hubby, he drove me and kids from Coventry to Luton airport, drove back to Coventry and staying at his dads tonight before heading back off to Waddington in the morning for work for the week ... and then flying back home to us on Friday!!! Check-in at Luton - hideous; security - even more horrendous. Despite starting at checki-in queue as soon as it opened, had to go straight to gate when emerged from security!!! Better than on way out when got times wrong for check-in at Inverness and made it with 1 minute to spare!!!! Shouldn't have gone for the dip in the sea clearly ...
So no Camlo, I am not looking forward to another year of this commute but can't see anything changing soon
Lovely to see everyone but a bit full-on manic though. Someone mentioned benefits of having an understanding hubby and training ... love my husband - NOT - when I mentioned I wanted a run this weekend "didn't you run at your parents then" said with some heat ... erm two 3-milers doesn't really count I think???? Erm this is the guy who seems to think he's going to provide support for me on the WHW Race ...
Great sounding run Camlo - are you signed up to any more ultras?
JT - glad to hear you are getting some swimming in and hopefully some sense re the lungs too?
CM - hope you are feeling better?
I have a new inhaler to try courtesy of the nurse at the asthma clinic. It's a purple mixed dose thing so we shall see
Sorry if missed loads, am totally boggle-eyed. Kind of relieved we are back to school tomorrow as so need to get back into routine, but also absolutely terrified of my 'official' start pilates classes this week - ie they have to pay for it ... so need to get my five-week lesson plan sorted tomorrow ... eek! Need to get a running schedule sorted too as am determined to TRY and get some speed in my utlras.
Lotte - probs too late but this is what I have to run with on races where I don't need lots of extra kit for terrain/weather, although can fit a fair bit in, it suits me as I like water in a bladder rather than a hand-held, I love the fact it's a vest and doesn't have to fit waist as they never do http://www.amazon.co.uk/NATHAN-Womens-Intensity-Hydration-Race/dp/B005IDDN6C/ref=pd_sim_sbs_sg_1
