How do you get going again after pregnancy?
my xray results back in the summer took about that length of time ... I had to ring receptionist for results, and between us we decided the cyptic notes meant everything was OK!!!! So horrible for J but I guess dioralyte is at least getting all the salts and sugars back in, disgusting stuff that it is!! I used it as rehydration for the SDW race as I'd left all my SIS sachets at home. Can quite understand re taking the drugs, and wanting your babies back with you. Very hard.
Ummmm - out of date stuff, yes, we're not great on it here either - whilst not having any spices with a 19?? on them, definitely found a 2003 one in there the other day ... so that clearly made it through the move to Scotland back in 2010!!
So, I went out on my mountain bike today ... God I wished I hadn't! Nearly home and got distracted looking at the wind turbines near us - failed to notice slight sand bank, failed to remove feet from pedals .. bike went sideways, chestbone collided with end of handle bar - NOT to be recommended. Ouch ouch. Iced it as soon as I got home and have coated it in Arnica. can drive car, hang washing etc but do know I've done something!!!
made appt for osteopath next week, wasn't quite intending to store up a list of issues for her to deal with! Strangely ankle feeling heaps better this afternoon after feeling crap this morning. We have the Scottish Masters XC champs here in Forres on Sat and I am meant to be running ... got some top women names in it like Angela Mudge (she is legend in my books ) and Kate Jenkins to name a few. Am seriously tempted just to strap up ankle and run race anyway - not proper XC as is on forest trails ... obviously depends on if I can breathe tomorrow!!!
Am also considering pulling out of WHW race - the logistics of getting a support team together, along with the childcare requirements are stressing me out considerably, along with every niggle taking on ridiculous proportions in my head, plus not being able to enter other stuff I want to do because of it. I do have my own ultra run that I want to do in the autumn too - have worked out my route ... about 100 miles which finishes at my back door, just need to do the recces.
Anyway, that was me me me ... spot the PMT runner with niggles who's fed up with January/February gloom.
EF - yeuch to 5am barfing. And yes WFH is all about flexibility!!
Poor J, CM, sounds awful. I remember my friend's daughter having something similar last year where she kept getting better then worse. Some nasty bugs around at the moment.
Mine is pretty feeble as bugs go - spent yesterday evening lying on sofa feeling cold and tummy hurting then had to take day off work today (was all ready to crawl in and manage just to get paid) as my boss said they're trying to keep the tummy bugs away . Then I've just felt tired and stomach cramping every now and then all day really. Now feel ok but every time I eat my tummy starts cramping, really annoying! Just had a piece of poached cod for tea - not going to get fat at least!
CC ((())) to hormonal rants, perfectly permitted Boo to your chest though - ouch! And yuk to 5am barfing - what brought it on? Might have missed that bit .
Well at least on my dull day off sick (Sophie at school, Nicky at grandparents') I cleaned the very dirty sofa. Silver lining and all that .
oh Anj. (()). you are ok. that's the main thing. accidents happen, so please don't stress about it. (())
Oh Anj, what a horrible to start to the day. I know I've definitely had some very near misses on that front (going into the back of people, esp on the school run), so very easily done. Not surprised you were shaken up, just a relief to know you, baby and Leila were OK, and grrrrr boo to the American lady.
TT - is funny how quickly that one-handed thing comes back to you isn't it!
Got a lovely red medallion shape coming in the middle of my chest now. I think I am going to know about THAT in the morning!
Oh dear Anj. Glad you are all ok.
Bummer on the crash CC. Hope no lasting damage. What a shame if you have to pull out of WHW but it is supposed to be our hobby so if the logistics are too stressful then probably for the best. Sounds like you have plenty of other plans! Fingers crossed that ankle is good now.
Camlo the photos on FB looked awful!
I felt remarkably ok yesterday. Did 2 x 10 mile runs, it was such a glorious day it would have been a shame to waster the chance. The SUN was out almost all day and I haven't seen that for a while! Included my favourite good for the soul route over the highest hill around here (there is a track up it) and managed to alternate my 30s hard/30s easy all the way up which is hard going, reward is spectacular views and a glorious long long down hill the other side.
Right cuppa tea gone, time for run. We are forecast snow for today but hoping we miss it!
lotte - you are indeed a machine
hope anj is feeling ok today and cc's chest not too bad
have picked J up this morning. he was in his school uniform!??! the child who has been ill since saturday and hadn't eat since tuesday night until he had some veg soup last night and a piece of toast this morning. hmmm. needless to say, i brought him home and he is now playing the wii while i am on a 2hr conf call! he is such a dear boy, bless him. anyway fingers x'd he is on the mend now as no diarrhoea or vomiting since yday morning
T is now being sick, so at least i now think it's a bug. i was beginning to wonder as no-one else had had it. of course now i'm worrying about E... and if i get it as well, oh god. doesn't bear thinking about! lalalalala!
mind you - when i was at T's this morning, E handed me her toothbrush and i took it back into the bathroom. inspite of J being so poorly, he hasn't actually cleaned the bathroom. the sink had what looked like cereal spat all down one side; toothpaste all over it; tap still crusty. as it was on SUNDAY morning. and the toilet - still has poo on it. so really - is it any wonder that T is now sick? my whole house stinks of bleach. i bleached both bathrooms, the hall way and sponged and sprayed J's carpet with anti-bac cleaner (not that that is probably good enough but I don't have a steam cleaner and I can't bleach it). wtf is he thinking??
