Take it easy Andrew. Breath in...and out. There's a nice warm padded cell waiting for you when this is all over.

DS2 - rest day today for me, if you can call this rest

I agree - it'll be a bit of a wait today.

I'll be honest with you, behind this calm, composed exterior lies a quivering wreck of a man. I am more worried about bad news than I am excited about good news. I have removed and hidden my belt and shoe laces. Samaritans is on speedial, and I have a box of kleenex within arms reach (no childish quips please - you know I'd never stoop that low).

andrew - I find I'm fine in meetings because they distract me from the really important things in life  but it's the rest of the time...............

How many people will be constantly checking emails/voicemail/refreshing the forum pages????

Sure this isn't good for you.....

13/12/2012 at 09:49
Ha ha ha it's all come down to this, you can feel the tension!!!!!

I'm trying to pretend I won't be too disappointed if I lose out................and then reality strikes!!!

Glad to get an early run in to help release a bit of tension but partly wished I'd waited until lunchtime!

Ps as of 9.49 this morning they are still deciding and will let us know later today or tomorrow - oh the suspense! Hope you are all ok and hanging in there!

How did you find out? Did you email Katie?? The tension

13/12/2012 at 10:42

Oh no! Not tomorrow please!!! Does it take that long to put 4 or 5 names in a hat and pull one out?

Poor show if that's the case but doesn't altogether surprise me. Lets hope it's sooner rather than later.

Glad to see that its as busy as ever on here. I was going to ask how everyone was coping...but by the looks of the thread....it doesnt look good! 

DS2 you must be made of steel. We had freezing fogg, ice and it was -3 this morning. I was feeling all sorry for myself driving to work, unable to feel my fingers, and then I saw a farmer jump out of his tractor and into a field....I then started to think to myself how lucky I am that I work in a heated surgery and have central heating at home.

Yes - Sarah - there is always someone worse off than ourselves! I have realised this week that if I didn't put my running kit on first thing I'd be less inclined to go out during the day after sitting in my warm office and my secretary making me hot tea all day!

I must say though, that I ran the second rep without my gloves on and the tips of my fingers were blue at the end of it so they went straight back on for the last two. It was cold though and after every rep it was hard to stay warm and I had to ease into each rep to get the legs going properly again.I ran with leggings and two thermal tops!!! What a lightweight!

You running today?

Hi guys, how's every one holding up? Eased the tension with my long run this morning after an early start at work, got 15 in with 3 at MP. Can't feel my hands now!

I've just realised that while I was showering after my run there were about two pages of posts on here. Sorry if it looks like I completely ignored them.

seren/Minni/Tigger  - thanks for your continued interest!

maybe this waiting is Victors test of our mental strength. (  ha ha even I managed to sneak into office for a sneaky peak at my phone!! )

Yes I emailed Katie , poor thing, I didn't mean to pester her but the suspense is killing me! I'm trying to forget about it at work and really shouldn't be on here right now but it's very difficult! Aw I'm so impressed with your run this morning, 15 miles before work! Hardcore!
13/12/2012 at 11:33

Congratulations to the lucky 5!!! I'll be right behind you all

13/12/2012 at 11:40

Brrr! Blue fingertips??! DS2 - Respect!

Just got my email, unfortunately I didn't make the grade, good luck to those still waiting, might be worth checking your inbox.
