How do you get going again after pregnancy?
No I only wash my hair after morning run Vixo, evening I just shower body as far too late by then to get my hair dry. If running morning then lunchtime I'll just have a very quick shower again no hair and then just wear kit again until I run again. I don't get massively hot so don't find its a major issue. Don't know what Lotte does? I have to have a quick shower just to warm up as I get so cold after running.
Sounds fabulous at the choir. Yes not worth it with her so young. I was always being asked to come home if I went out when I was BF in the early days.
CC, so hard to know what to do. Have you spoken to your english friend about it and explained your other (scottish) friends' disposition? Might be worth a bash?
Sophie dropped at pre-school. First school day for her today. She has been so desperate to stay for lunch and I really struggle to get 15 miles in by 11.45 unless I pick her up in my kit. I do like to come home and potter a bit before I go off running, have a coffee etc and my breakfast has never gone down by 9. So she's there until 2.45 bless her. She will be so tired later!! Still better get a few more jobs done and get going. At least the sun is shining for me!!
How was it TT? Bit of a rush then?
OK now just read back and read Camlo's report. Wow! Is all I can say. Seriously electric torture chamber really. How many actuallly get round the course? What is the drop our rate? You are amazing! I can run miles and miles and will do/have done some pretty bad off road races but will never contemplate that. Well done you!
oh WOW TT, well done you, can't wait to see some pictures too. Enjoy the snuggles
Vixo - just reread my comment, sounded like I was taking pi** a bit, I did actually mean kind of what you said. I know when J had a really annoying cough that was driving us nuts after a cold he had, the dr gave us some nasal antihistamine stuff and I'm sure it was kind of to tide us over until he just 'got over it' and forgot about it all!!! Agree, leaving a 5-week-old at home would be fairly unreasonable! But just doing something you enjoy that's not 'home' is good. That sounds an awesome opportunity with the choir. Dad and his group have been having some coaching too but nothing like that.
MM - can remember upping S's hours and she was shattered but she loved it so much (and yes, it allowed me to get the longer run in too!!).
I haven't been able to speak to friend and she didn't want to talk in person about it, but yes, that's what I said via text, that it really wasn't meant as an insult - goodness, she has English friends aplenty - just her rather dry manner. At the end of the day they will probably only meet one more time at next weeks pilates class and then the 'offending' lady can't do the daytime class, so am going to leave the whole thing be as it really is well out of proportion!!
Wonder if Lotte caught the bus home OK and is still drunk or sobering up??
Haven't done double runs for a while but still often have multiple things going on and can do the whole shower thing in 5 mins if nec, sometimes skanky kit does come off until evening if shower thing not done. Like TT my hair is now short enough I can wash and go - am so loving my new haircut
Well I ran this morning - five miles outside. Wore my more cushioned trail shoes and ankle definitely didn't feel any worse so think long mountain bike tomorrow and perhaps another run Friday and build back up a bit and see. Week off when skiing anyway. Did lots of massage etc last night.
Soooooooooooo windy here last night and today - was pushing the car all over the road as I drove back from town, had to go out and retrieve stuff that was blowing round garden last night. Made my run more interesting this morning though ...
Bloomin heck TTid - wasn't expecting that news. Massive congratulations. Love the name. Hope you are both well and look forward to hearing all about it when you get a moment to get on here (ha ha, as if there is ever a moment to yourself with a newborn!)
Have no idea about double maclaren buggies but my mum had a single one for such moments and it was fab actually. I used to nick it off her if I needed to do some shopping involving shopping centres as it was so light and maneuverable
Back from run was 16 not 15 due to my underestimate. Could have done without that tbh as was struggling. Such strong wind, stopped me in my tracks several times and that and the wading, so fed up with the weather now. Suppose it was sunny so can't have everything!
Still 16 done in 2:04. So tired now and need more food, still hungry!!
Congrats TT, wow what a surprise!! Love the name Oscar . Hope it all went ok and wasn't too terrifying being that early.
Someone at playgroup used to have a double Maclaren and loved it. My issue with side by side ones was always that my children have always been so big! Plus I thought they might torment each other?!
Vixo - am with you on the hot and sweaty after a run thing, no way I could not shower and get dressed so I never do 2 lots of exercise in one day (not that I have time anyway!).
Lotte hope you had a great time last night, I was watching a bit of it and it looked spectacular. I wonder how much you can remember
Just entered the RW Trailblazer in May - a 10k so should be manageable I hope! Still £20 with a discount but I thought I'd take advantage of the RW offer.
Tummy not good today, hurting and gurgling for some reason - was planning on getting to circuits tonight for the first time since before my shoulder froze (!) so will have to see how it is later .
Caro - hope new job is going well. Were you pleased to get back to work? I took on that extra morning before Christmas, and now the teacher whose class it is is being taken off our programme to teach elsewhere, so if this was a couple of years' time I could now start working 4 days a week, finishing at 3-3.30pm. Frustrating that I can't/don't want to do that yet while Nicky's still little, I just hope these opportunities come up in the future too.
Can't remember if I congratulated Camlo and RF but well done both of you nutters! Camlo I can't believe you are considering doing it again!!
WOW TurboT that was a surprise. Congratulations and welcome to the world peerie Oscar. Hope you are both well, looking forward to hearing more.
Camlo - respect.
Vixo - I had a Maclaren double buggy which was great, very practical and easy to fit in car and set up quickly but wasn't much room in it (which was ok for my twins but not sure how it would be for an older sibling) and was impossible to push with one hand as it had three seperate handles.
So I survived and not too hungover. Fun night, had a right laugh. Saw folks I haven't seen for yonks which was great. Managed not too drink too fast, just a constant steady trickle of wine, fizzy wine, cider, gin, and then lager for breakfast at 8am Had a bit of a sleepy patch at 3am but a jagermeister and red bull saw me through. Made it to the end of the night (8.30am) then had a rather surreal half a mile walk to the bus stop in a storm supping lager from a tin (how dodgy!) 45 mins on the bus another wee walk and then home just after 10am not too worse for wear. Had tea and toast then hubby drove my friend home. By 11am I had been up for 30 hours so I did go and lie on our bed snoozing until 1pm but been up since then. Can't wait until bedtime. Kids are being particularly noisy today, thankfully hubby is off work today. He wasn't out last night but his offices are shut today. No running today and I fear tomorrows miles will not be fast!
ha ha Lotte, that is an epic session! I did think it was a very classy pic of you wandering along the streets in the not-quite-morning light with a tinny in hand!!! But agree you look very youthful I am sure your slow tired post-hangover miles are still a decent lick ...
Well done on the run MM. Sounds tough with all the surface water. We have had rain this afternoon but the winds are something else, I was almost blown over walking from car to Js guitar lesson and was hanging on to S to keep her on the ground! You and me RF clearly have the same weather
Anj - good to hear you are prepared, in case you do a TT!! J had exactly that, the throat-clearing, drove us absolutely nuts, esp me in the evening. Once he went to sleep it stopped and in the morning he would forget for a while so I knew it wasn't asthma. Eventually it DID just disappear but did take a while.
JT - that's horrible about the beating up. I have had full-blown English bashing in North Wales - got chased out of a fish and chip shop in Bethesda and then chased down the street. Whenever we used to stay in the Scout base there on mountaineering weekends, the landlord of the Douglas Arms was always very friendly but would put us in a different room for the evening to keep the peace!!!
