How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Yeah, just tell us what you're not going to call her EF!
Just checked, RF's telly performance is today, but it's on BBC2 in Scotland only Not sure if it'll be on the i player for us english folk or not.
ooooh yes, must get that recorded tonight then!!
RF - I can't believe you were in the pool today ... I took Scarlett in to the climbing wall while J and hubby froze outside - we could have walked within inches of each other!!! Although perhaps you were there earlier than us? I have a persistant ache on my right foot at the moment - it's probably PF but I am ignoring and icing stretching for the moment - all part of my policy to train unless I am crippled and see if I fall apart completely or somehow run through it all. If I totally fall apart then I have no choice but to rest!!
LOL at lists of names - usually very entertaining
Camlo - that's an awsome run despite the niggles etc. Hope ice on the knee does the job.
Sonya - sigh, that's what you could have done without. I know in older people bladder infections can send them gaga ... they thought my great aunt's dementia was deteriorating but actually was a bladder infection. ANyway, I hope it all went OK in the end.
Um ... forgotten all now ...
Haven't run since Friday, but clocked 41 miles this week, most weekly mileage since beginning of January - yay.
Wasn't TOO bad in the end over at sports centre in Inverness but just kept remember when I took Lotte last year. Did have a pang at not running though, especially when they anounced what a fantastic day Forres Harriers was having, I love running with my club, they are a real friendly motivating bunch. Hey ho!
S absolutely loved the climbing wall, kept thinking she'd run out of steam and start whinging and demanding food, I swear she bouldered or climbed for just shy of two hours Didn't want to go too high up the wall, but fair enough, just glad she enjoyed. Someone gave me a belay so I got a couple of seriously easy routes and some bouldering too. Just a shame they don't open the wall in the week until after 3pm, do they just think it's kids and twenty-somethings that like to use wall in week??
Cuppa in Tiso - and I bought a fab new fleece - bit retro 80s colours but love it. Dropped hubby at airport on way back, all good apart from him reversing into another car and serious dnt to the bumper - just glad it wasnt' me!!!
For all my whinging about hubby, he is always complimentary (although honest about clothes), even though I am now as flat as a pancake etc!! and would never deliberately diss me like that I don't think. ANother hubby needing a kick up the bum!!
Hope the christening went well Sonia despite the extra stress!!
CC I think M will be a climber like her dad - she seems to know just where to put hands, feet etc.
ANother crazy week - working til 2pm today then picking up Matilda from daycare and driving down to my parents. Staying the night and then on to my sisters, dropping M with her and carrying on to Fletchers funeral. WIll stay with sis Tue night then haul it all the way back up here Wed as I can't miss too much work. They are being very understanding but with one thing and anotehr I have had a lot of time off plus I have a weeks annual leave coming up and then the operation!
Hope CM and MM had a nice catch up!
ooooo we've got the only Catalina in Scotland in 2012!
That is very sad Caro - so many reasons to count our blessings!
I gave myself a big talking to in the weekend - work has been really stressful and I have made some mistakes due to general distraction. Luckily work is very supportive but I am too hard on myself so have decided to cut myself some slack and focus on what is really important.
Meant to ask Caro - where is Ian at with his back now? Have they decided what to do?
Wish I could watch RF's tv debut!! I hope your family is very proud of you!!
Oh MM - boo to the head cold and a bad race, always a tough one to call not to race ... sometimes you just hope for a miracle. I hope you will let yourself recover well from this, you've had some fantastic training. I am assuming you had similar weather to us today .
RF rocks - she is an absolute star. Just watched it - like you Camlo, I loved the singing - no way i'd been in tune anyway, let alone on a mbk lap, in a forest, on a track of ice, in the middle of the night!!! Was watching all these people stacking it - did love the guy that went over before they'd even left the start pen . Seriously though RF, I thought you came across very well, and the interviewing of you and the other girl just illustrated to so well the juggle of fitting in stuff around families etc ... whereas the other lady fitted life around her training - cos she could, of course. I especially liked the 'extreme way to get out of childcare' comment - one I've used frequently to explain why I do ultras
Brookie - pre-children I was seriously into my rock-climbing. I got into it in my mid-20s, eventually joined a club and that was it ... total love affair!! They very patiently taught me to lead-climb as well so I got well into that and could ultimately do some reasonably hard leading climbing. Hubby also climbs but he loved his white water kyaking more so we didn't spend a lot of time together doing stuff!! (anyone see a pattern here??) Obv family came along, did a little during and after both pregnancies but ultimately the logistics when kids are young is tricky so I have done very little in recent years. Is 50 miles round trip to decent wall so not ideal but there are some small sea crags just down the road and now the kids are showing interest .... Am about to purchase new rope (not trusting my old ones on my kids!!) and have promised thems we will do it once weather is better. The loss of my climbing is mainly why I got so into running, used to be the other way around!!
Yes, I'd like some hypERthermia too - just warned my parents to bring full winter kit up when they come at Easter ...
