A non running post.....
We should all make the most of what we have whilst we have it, especially our famiiy and friends. Live for today, make reaonable provision for the future, but remember that the future is uncertain and may not be what you wish for, and those that you love may not be the same people.
Hear hear Eagle. You know my tale of woe - how true that you cannot foresee the future or the role of your loved ones within it. Enjoy what you've got while you've got it and do nothing to be ashamed of or to cause pain to others.
And on a running note... you inspired me and my potential 6-7 mile run turned into nearly 16 miles! Thank you
Enough with the Christmas jingles Tippy. They are banned on here for another 13 days yet!Well done with your holiday running. Look after that pesky achilles though - we need you to be fit and strong to carry us all over the Pompey finish line 5 weeks today! And then you've got to go and get the lunch afterwards while we all have a little rest!
Speedy - age is inevitable, laziness is personal choice. You can control things in that regard. Don't beat yourself up for having 'rest' periods though. I'm about to go and have one very shortly actually!!You know what? - your daughter and grandson are better off without the baby's father in the long run. If he's not committed to them now he never will be. No mother or child deserves to be second best in their man's eyes. Good riddance to him. They've got Granny Speedy instead - much better option
How's my ickle fluffy birdy this morning?
PS - sorry if I sound a bit bitter on the partner / father issue there! I know that we share this thread with two very VERY nice guys whose families are blessed to have.
The Eagle ran 5 miles to the gym, 20 mins on the static bike, body pump class followed by stretch & tone. As I've missed a few classes lately pump came a bit hard as I did not drop the weights!
Re my post yesterday. We have four elderly parents three of which are not 'our parents' any more. It is difficult, and the situation is deteriorating.
Enough of that, the Eagle's aim is to make you smile! So go crack a BIG one, you know that you want to!
I've run on Eagle Beach - a couple of years ago in Aruba. Eagles are so special are they not?
Hope that you are both having a great time.
Have watched some of the films from the stick - Man on a ledge last night. A good one.
Speedy - I used to get really freezing feet every winter at the stables. I found the answer is fleecy boot liners. Multiple socks can make the situation worse, bjut light socks and double boot liners works a treat. Cold hands I've never found an answer for though.
... puts cold hands on Tippy's sun tanned back... Ahhhhhh
Sympathies for your family situation Eagle. It's a difficult thing when one's parents deteriorate. Hard to cope with physically and emotionally. Big hugs to you and Mrs E.
Speedy - I wear a style of ankle boot called 'muckers' at the stables. They are thick soled (which helps with warmth) and always have fleece liners in them. It's also better to have your boots a little bit on the loose side rather than really snug. That doesn't help so much with walking, although I manage to trudge a fair way - but it does help with warmth.The thing you could try with gloves is a cotton layer underneath your sturdy ones. Also there is a brand called 'Sealskinz' which are about as insulating as possible. Again though, anything too snug will actually make your fingers colder. And make sure you wear a scarf! I wear a 'buff' round my neck in winter and it seems to protect the rest of me! (There's a scientific answer to this but I can't be bothered to explain it at this time of night!).
Nightnight my lovelies.
That sounds idyllic Tippy. Glad to hear you are having a nice time.
I always behave. Innocent as pure fresh snow me.
Just over 4.5 miles this morning in the dark, wet & wind before coming into work.
Well done Eagle.
I've copped out of my runette today. Too tired, too grumpy, too dark and wet, too many excuses!
