How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Just had a FB message, she's fine and I think she's with everyone she knows. Phew! Still don't really know what happened or how bad it is. Am rather shivery, think I need a cup of tea!
Glad your sister is ok Caro.
That's awful - so sorry cross posts Caro, I had no idea. Glad your sis is ok but awful that some have died.
The word awful just doesn't do it justice does it? Hideous is more effective. Where is your sister staying Caro?
SO glad to hear she is ok Caro - must have been so scary for you! Remembering those frantic few ours after the London bombs waiting to hear that everyone I knew was ok.
We have had an amazing week away - should be working now but my mind not fully back in work mode!!! I am so glad I went over erly - it was wonderful to spend so much time with my lovely friend and her family. Matilda was an absolute angel!! EVeryone now things she is a model child (hahahaha) but she did so well. The wedding was beautiful - Matilda couldn't handle mummy being up the front (she hadn't seen me all day) so I ended up holding her through all the ceremony as I suspect she would have howled otherwise! Had to try and keep her quiet during the vows though! Anyway wonderful time catching up, yummy food (and wine - it was at a super fancy winery!), and lots of laughs!
No work dramas while I was away which is a big relief (although got a speeding ticket in my work car while I was driving to my friends baby's funeral - crap but who cares really! I am so conscious of not speeding ever esp in work car so clearly my mind was not on the game!
Not much time to read back but I hope spring has finally arrived?
Christ Caro! Just come on here and seen your comments ... have been pilates planning all evenign and not had news or radio on. How awful, so glad to hear she is OK, well physically anyway, but just horrible.
Agree with others that London is not a place I would especially want to be this week - too many horrible people out there with hidden agendas
JG - am no expert at all, but I guess between most of us on here we could probably write some sort of guide on SI joint problems and recovery!!! Did she say you could run on it? I know when mine packed up big time (after having J), I was banned completely from running for six weeks, was allowed to bike as much as I wanted. At this point I could barely walk for shooting pains through my whole pelvis and the nagging ache in my back. I then went through a trip a week to the chiro and some ever-increasing exercises provided by the rehab guy to get my glutes working properly and stopping the hamstrings from taking over. Since I've started teaching pilates (fingers x-ed, touching wood) I haven't had probs (just my ankles now!) as I guess core is stronger but still need to work on glutes. Whenever I feel a niggle coming on I reach straight away for the notes. Tennis ball in the butt area works a treat too - all around it but especially along the area just below the bony bit.
Wedding and time away sounds lovely HOggle, and yes, our darlings are often models of behaviour unless at home with us!! Bugger to the speeding fine though, but yes, definitely last thing on your mind.
Yeah he said run on it but to be fair I haven't run much since I started going, so maybe he'll have different advice this week. The physio/pilates instructor I know has recommended a physio if the osteo is not working. I tried a tennis ball but to be honest I didn't really know what I was doing and was worried I'd make it worse! It doesn't hurt at all until I've run a few miles, and yesterday it felt more of an ache to the outside of my butt rather than tightness in my hamstring, which it has previously, but today the stiffness is the same as usual. I did just read that SI problems can be caused by difference in leg length, which I have always thought I have. Don't know if orthotics are going to be the answer?
Must go to bed now, been glued to the news all evening, not really planned my lessons for tomorrow, oops...
