How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Fingers are crossed T-tid!!! I am still chuckling to myself at the idea of both your children semi-dressed while out. Do the friends have kids?!! Lucky it doesn't get too cold where you are!!
Specialist then physio today and then a load of work to do. Matilda and I are heading down to the farm tomorrow for some recuperation. She is SOOO excited!!
Yes Hoggle, our friends have kids so are familiar with various states of undress.
How is your back now, is your recovery going well?
'through the decades' party TT . Will read back now...
crumbs I saw fingers crossed and thought you were preg again TT, Crossing my fingers for a mortgage too!!!
My boys are always in a state of undress..... good job it is warm where you are!
Good luck with the recovery Hoggle, really hope you see the benefits soon and can back to a bit of walk/ jog soon.
4th day on the trot of exercise, biked, ran, swam and ran again tonight. My swimming was pretty poor but I did manage 800m with hardly any proper recovery (standing each shallow end to click my clicker doesn't count does it??).
Just had my 2nd plate of ham and parsley sauce today, got to mums as she was dishing up lunch and brought leftovers home for tea... result!
Haha Camlo, that would be interesting to have another one on the way already! I did have a little stroll down memory lane as I think it was Vixo mentioned getting plonked into 2010 when she came onto the forum. I did too and started to read a little. It was Nov/Dec 2010. Was fun to read back although not good times for some of you with some really poorly little ones, especially JT. Tough times
Fab exercise Camlo and great result on dinner. Running tonight for me, must try and set off with the runners tonight and not the walkers. I CAN DO IT!!
Mmmmm ham and parsley sauce. Yum. Impressed by exercise Camlo. All I'm managing right now is walking but hey ho. Only 8 wks to go, then recovery for a few weeks then finally I'll be back on it. We have mortgaapplications on the go too T tid. Oh man it is stressful. And it all takes so long! So it's hanging over you the whole time. It's so funny - during the holidays this thread is so much quieter but I bet some of the others are busier as people without kids have more time to post when they are off work!
Oh and hope u all have fun on the farm Hoggle. How are you feeling post op now?
I'm feeling good although had a wobble yesterday as my back was feeling crap which has reminded me that although the compressed nerve should be sorted, I'm a long way from having a properly fixed back. Sigh! Camlo I fear that walk/jog is a way off yet. I'd be happy with being able to do decent walks for a start. Have found a good physio. She spent an hour looking at all my postural issues! I mentioned Pilates and she said she won't let me go until she's taught me to breathe properly!! I am really focused on getting everything sorted properly not just thinking its all ok til the next time. Will be hard work though. God I'm so unfit though! I was fitter when I was 9 months preg!!!
Good to hear you have a fab physio though Hoggle, and totally agree about trying to get everything properly sorted though. Just think good it will feel as you gradually start putting the jigsaw back together again . Enjoy the farm. Sounds like you are having lovely weather at the moment - I have a couple of other people I know out in NZ (including a cousin) who are all commenting on FB about the weather.
Right, off to the beach with my daughter for a quick dip and maybe a sandcastle before collecting J from another 'Seals' day - they were paddle boarding and sailing today.
Did great bike ride yesterday down in Glenmore - 11 miles all told although had to cut short a bit as friend had to go. Fantastic mix of terrains and both kids loved it - although S had to add in the drama by trying a sneaky overtaking move, hitting a boulder head on with bike, catapulting bike and herself over edge into a bog!!! Thankfully I missed seeing it as they were so far ahead - but had to retrieve and repair bike which was all twisted around and brake cables disconnected etc. Hey ho, after suitable reward (chocolate animal biscuits) she soon forgot and was back on again!! Felt quite virtuous after doing 5 miles on dreadmill in the morning!
and agree Camlo - fabbeeee training
Sorry I haven't read back so have missed folks, but not intentionally.
Beautiful pictures EF on Facebook of your gorgeous children.
crickey it is quiet, hope everyone is out running!
Well done on the 5 day streak Vixo, especially running on holiday. Good luck with the sleep training -sending lots of patience and will power to you!
Have finally booked my 'summer holiday' -a week in October to gran canaria. it is a kid friendly complex called parque cristobal. Going a week after my triathlon and coming back 2 weeks before snowdonia mara so technically it will be both recovery and tapering??
Took boys swimming earlier and Tom did 18 lengths..... grrrr he will be beating me soon - the shame . Was supposed to be going out but our reliable babysitter (eldest) rang an hour AFTER he was supposed to be here t osay he was just leaving his place so I told him not to bother.
weather forecast was rubbish so apart from a really short bike and run I've been grounded all day......black clouds defo found me. Wish I had taken kids out as rain didn't actually come to much and it would have been totally manageable. gah.
We're home! Super hols, no time to read back so a camlo style update on the top events over the past 2 walks would be much appreciated
hope all well.
Quick hi from me, not posted for a while. Kids been driving me demented this week, 7 wks of school hols- there is no need!!! Back to school on Tuesday thank goodness. Had enough of the moaning, whining & general mess everywhere. We had a lovely holiday in Aviemore the last week in July, then had a festival the following weekend then went to see ' Runrig' the weekend after so it was all a bit busy.my 2 wks of work were lovely, weather was good & managed to get some running & cycling done alone!!
it was the " monster swim" yesterday. A mile or half mile swim n Loch Ness. Weather wasn't looking good, rain & gusts of wind. Early start to head to Dores. in the Q to register then Q to get tag and another Q for the portaloos. Into change tent, wetsuit on, bag dropped of, onto beach & await safety briefing. They took a while & the waves gradually appeared & the buoys were getting dragged ashore.
Horn blasted & in jump 350 odd nutters into the waves. Held back a bit so didn't get hit in the face too much!! Yikes not used to swimming n waves; did breaststroke to see where I was going. Couple of people already requiring the rescue canoes n boats, oh dear, not good. Anyway one f the buoys had completely blown away so no one knew where we were going & someone was saying they thought we had to go in. Anyway it was a 2 lap course & when. Got near the turning buoy I thot bugger that I"m not going round that again!! Just got out of the water, got my medal & they called everyone out of the water anyway!!!! Oh dear shame for the fast swimmers as they were more than half way round the second lap. Really nice event though & did feel safe in the water knowing there was plenty of paddle boats etc. anyway it has made me slightly more confident for my OW tri two wks today, yikes.
i cycled to the river today in the wind and rain, put wetsuit on, got in but couldn't really swim as river going fast so just stayed in for 5 mins. Changed back into cycling gear, wetsuit etc onto rucksack, dropped it of at home then did 10 miles MTB cycle & a 4 miles hilly run. Gosh am knackered tonight!
Glad you had a great holiday CaroSeesaw some of your pics on FB, the kids are lovely.
oh Camlo, that will be something to look forward to then for October. Nice. What tri are you doing again?
only 8 wks left Brookie, wow not long to go.
CC - glen more is fab to cycle, luv it around there.
Vixo- yay to the running & training for a half. Your hols sounded brill.
em, canna remember much else.
hope everyone is surviving the summer
That should say 'caro saw some of your "!!!!
Caro - Brookie has 8 weeks to go; Hoggle has had her op; MM is on HRT; lots of people have been running. Some people have been doing swimming and mountain Biking. Or just biking. The scots are going back to school. loads of people have been on holiday. Some of us are fed up. Err - I am not sure what else...
Oh and birthdays. Lots of birthdays. MM is 40. And so is MR.
