How do you get going again after pregnancy?
i am hoping that's me off the bench, but am going to take it very VERY slowly. lots more jumping, stretching and calf raises / lunges etc to consolidate the recovery. may try a walk and little jog again tomorrow but am not going to push it. i'm so unfit now anyway that i won't be able to do much!
argh to sick, anj. yes - there is a spectacular amount of vomit that can come out even when they haven't eaten. poor lamb. my two are very sanguine about vomit. i remember i used to get very upset about it as a kid but my 2 don't. having had really bad D+V here for a few weeks, i can now say vomit isn't a problem for me, but diarrhoea - EVERYWHERE - is. once they come out of nappies at night (and especially with J who doesn't wear anything to bed) nocturnal diarrhoea (in beds / down bunk bed ladders, up walls, all over floor, all over shoes) - oh god...
we are in legoland on mon / tues. can't wait. supposed to be chilly but dry. you are nearby aren't you anj?
yay to interviews, MM. can you reschedule the one you can't make? oh and i would rather get up early and run than do a dreadmill run!
WE have the same weather then Lotte I think - absolutely baltic, don't envy the John Muir activity day at all, much as I love the great outdoors. Am mighty glad today is a rest day and did long run yesterday. Great to hear leg seems OK, but boo to the travel plans and the weather.
MM - fab news re the interviews, not so much a 4pm time though - that's just plain silly!! And a great treadmill session too.
Boo to the poorlies thoug, that sounds grim Anj and not what you need to deal with along with a wee baby to feed as well. Hope the rest of you stay clear though. Well done on running, great effort
So do some of you start Easter hols next week then? We don't finish until next Thurs.
CM - fab news re the calf, don't knock a 0.6 jog, just think, a couple of weeks ago you were despairing of running at all!!!
And definitely yay to 'just' a £220 bill for car. My car has 145,000 miles on it and has just had a service and MOT and cost us £1500 , watching hubbys bonus pouring down the drain already!!
I guess I am half on half off the bench. Running despite the niggles. Was pleased with yesterdays 15 after 10.5 the day before. Worked out why my quads felt mashed though when I met the friend who ran first half of the 10-miler with me - ran up the tower in the forest, and back down again - so that's where I'll be doing future hill training!!!
Rest day today. Making madam's birthday cake and stuff. Really hope we get a dump of snow tonight and I have legit excuse to escape orienteering tmrw morning - not a local one - about 60 mile round trip for half an hour of competition - in Aberlour - which is a lovely place in Spring but could do without it tbh. Have S's bday party in afternoon - 8 friends round for a copule of hours of party games etc, and we have another rugby tournament on Sunday. aaaagh!
Hubby drove home last night, was convinced he might not get out of Birmingham on his flight today with the weather warnings, although probably would have been fine, but nice to have him home late last night.
Tired kids today - had family ceileigh with school yesterday. Much fun but late night for school so all grumpy. Roll on the holidays please!!
Hoping so CM. Hubbie can work from home the week after Easter. I have suggested Thursday that week too as all three in childcare 9-3. He can't next week as he has big boss in and is driving all over the place to visit all the sites. He is away Weds night too.
yes, we finished for Easter today, cc. next thursday is late - that's maundy thursday!
Yep finished today CC. Kids need it they are so tired...
Anj - bleurgh to the voms. Even after 3 kids and lots of puke I still find it hard to clear the stuff up without retching myself. Yuck. Hope poorly one is better today.
CM - yay to being off the bench. Nice and easy now remember!
Did a 14 mile run today which was peak mileage for my half training and also the furthest I've ever run in my whole life! Was a bit worried that I might struggle after having sports massage yesterday but legs felt so much better than they have on the last 2 long runs. Will definitely be going for more regular massages in the future! Hope I haven't peaked too early on the speed though, ran it a bit faster than expected at average of 8.35mm which surprised me as it all felt pretty comfortable.
Right, must get the big ones in bed so I can put my feet up with a well deserved glass of red .
Have a good weekend everyone!
