Now now Limper

Left work early as bad snow. Will suffer for that when I have to work back 3 hours.

I don't believe that all people should be happy with what they find though Tippy. There are some bad sorts out there. 
But I get the general sentiment.

Now as for the doggy picture - I need to swap the outfit for waders and rain-hats for my dawgs!

(grabs, blanket and dones gloves)

Limper i popped in to RE's  Gym (fitness centre) yesterday.

1st got roped into a suspension class (it is fun and taxing)

2nd did body pump 

Loved both and had a great time with RE's other play mates

I've been to my gym this morning...
Resistance  - pushing a loaded wheelbarrow through the mud
Weights - lifting hay-bales out of the hay-loft (I'm only iccle)
Endurance - up and down the yard (with wheelbarrow) several times 
Free work - chasing dawgs / being chased (with brooms)

Now bring that blankie over here Tippy. I need wrapping up and cuddling and generally being looked after. Leave the rubber gloves off though - they're really not my thing

Love the workout Limper. Hope you are starting to feel better

Away for weekend now. No Internet access as speedy forgot to pay the bill seeing as not been there since October

Have a good weekend all. Will pop in if am somewhere with access.

Limper like it.

Hehe Limper - who needs gyms eh?!

What's a suspension class? Mind bogles!!  Is it like a TRX thing?

I've really struggled to get myself out for my run this week.  Finally got out yesterday to be confronted with a flooded lake and a unpassable path!  Went today in the end and did my 3.8miles as planned.  44 minutes - so average of about 11.5min/mile which whilst I accept isn't fast is a pace I am happy with  It was a major battle from the word go though and I had to just push on throught it.

Certainly wasn't a 'I love running' day!!

Ally - that is a tremendous distance to be running and a respectable speed. You should be very pleased with yourself. I always like to think that the days when it is tougher are an even greater achievement than the 'I love running' days.

Enjoy your weekend Speedy.

I can't believe that I am still poorly sick. I hate to think what a bug like this would do to  someone who is frail.
I don't think I'm going to be getting my Eagle-hug next weekend

Ally yep trx small group

What is TRX?

16/02/2013 at 15:06
Trx is 2 pieces of flat belt like material, that you hand from a tree or indoors, and you do body weight exercises with it.
It is hard but fun.

Still, it's actually a reasonably nice day out. That's always a bonus.
I shall go and do my 'gym' session and appreciate getting some fresh air (part way) in to my poor knackered lungs.

Hope you all have a lovely day.

BTW - Ally... isn't it Amelia's Happyday around now? I have it in my head (a strange place to be sure) that she was near but not on Valentines? I could be a whole 6 months out though, as I have been with Tippy's and my best friend's for the last couple of years!

Hope you are feeling better for a bit of sunshine Limper.

I am feeling quite pleased with myself. Went out on Friday and again today for 30 mins walk/run intervals. Really enjoyed it and am getting my confidence back. Excited about my next session on Tuesday when I will increase run intervals a bit.

Thanks everyone for the encouragement, it has really helped.
