Hi Loula!

Glad to hear the move has gone well and you have got straight in such a short time. Good luck with the sleepover and the party.  I wouldn't worry about your training. You seem to be able to run great whether you have trained or not!!

LOUUUUUULA *BOING BOING BOING BOING. We have missed you. How is everything going? I hope you are settling in okay. Big decisions about NDW too but only you know what is best for you. Thanks too, I am sooooo excited and just hope that we can make some good changes. I'm so lucky that I can have such a big say on how things are running and I can make sure everyone's hard earned fundraising goes to good use.

Jude, well done on your run. Sounds like you have a really busy day today. Happy Mothers Day.

Mathschick, make sure you have a rest. I am so glad my kids had no interest in computer games. I know they do get addictive. I imagine you have had an extra stressful week with OH and his job on top of everything else so no wonder you are tired.

Hi Boss.

I managed a 4 miler this morning and will run again tomorrow with my teamie who does the league races with me. I have the Washlands relays as my next race which is a 2 miler.

Hope everyone else is okay and having a lovely weekend.

hi jude, hope you have a lovely mothers day tomorrow and enjoy the film with mr Jude !!

i can run ok on no training but this is a LOOONG way lol

loula, brilliant to hear from you, glad you are all moved and settled in. Sounds like a busy time for you. Hope the birthday celebrations go well. Only you know whether you are up to NDW but if you are mentally tired as well might be better not to have the mental and physical pressure

Jude - hope you have a lovely mother's day

had the stress of taking big boy to buy him new trainers, his behaviour always turns so much worse when we are in a shop, and the shops were really busy. 

realised that doing weights before swimming wasn't such a good idea after all, arms felt so tired when I was swimming

11/05/2013 at 16:07

Loula-We have missed you and your naught ways- even Franny has been behaving.Pleased house move went well. Only you know if you can run your ultra!!!We are ready for a party when you are- virtual housewarming party.   

MC-We obviously have similar issues!!! Just need to get Mrs AF to push him more- otherwise we fall out over it.

Jude-Have a great mothers day.

Just done a hard 50 minutes on treadmill watching the I player on my IPAD- beats the boredom.  

11/05/2013 at 20:15

always ready for a party Boss

11/05/2013 at 21:01

Loula!!!! Oh honey we have missed you so much. Big Hugs. We are all ready to pile over to your house for a party and we don't mind about the boxes. In fact if we all help unpack one then the job will be done in no time.

Mmmmm, difficult decision about the NDW....

well done Jude. Hope you have a lovely evening out. Sounds an even busier few weeks coming up.

I was race director at parkrun today and we had a record turnout of 82 runners! Three of my girls did it. Hubby was working all day but girls and I went snake handling and shelter building in Epping Forest. Great fun

Morning all!

Iron Man 3 was amazing! Robert Downey Jr was gorgeous and the special effects were incredible. Loved it! Off to swimming now....

Have a lovely day all. xx


12/05/2013 at 10:47

morning all

did a 40 mile bike ride in just over 3 hours, and more importantly managed to drink and eat while moving,  I have been so scared of even trying I am over the moon about this. 

OH painting the bathroom ceiling, I think I should do some housework after a little rest - we are having little boy's birthday party here next week and the place is a total tip! I think we are going out for lunch too

have a lovely sunday everyone

Loula....sis its nice to have you back with us in CRAC towers. Hope birthday celebrations are going well. NDW..only you can decide that one...I know you won't have any problem running it or completing it cos you have stickability sis BUT you may not enjoy it if you are worrying about the time out.

I am glad I got my wee run done earlier as its now raining cats and dogs. training has gone well so far but being sensible as I want to get to start line injury free and fighting fit and finish in the same way with a big smile on my face

MC..enjoy lunch out

Jude..Hope you are having a nice mummy day

Chilli..your parkrun is coming on a treat

Ecky..well done on your runs and good luck with the league races

AF..well done on all your running. When is your next race? And I always behave Boss..see its loula who is the bad influence. lol

MC - That is great! Good mileage, good time and using a water bottle! All your training is slotting into place.

It is my Big Girl's birthday this week. One of her friends who turned 11 at the beginning of May is living in a hostel at the moment (the family lost their home last year) and she asked if I could please do a joint birthday tea for them both. I found her kindheartedness very touching. So we're having a house full of 10/11/12yr olds on Wednesday for pizza, dips and birthday cake. I would like to serve something more healthy but none of her friends would eat it!

Franny - I'm so excited about your marathon! It's lovely having so many of the CRAC team doing different ones cos then we get to cheer and support every few weeks!

12/05/2013 at 17:12

Aw Chilli..that's so lovely of your big girl to suggest that. So kindhearted just like her mum  I am getting excited too about marathon and enjoying my taper and not having to clock out high mileage every week or so. I don't mind once in a while and to be honest I am looking forward to the break from marathon training next year and just enjoying running.

MC..didn't mean to kiss out you brill cycle run.well done and hope lunch was good.


12/05/2013 at 18:13

chili - lovely that your girl wants to share her birthday party with her friend. Must be hard for the family living in a hostel. 

franny - don't worry, I always miss things out. Lunch was nice apart from the kids arguing all the time. We had to do shopping while we were out too which is always a pain.

OH has finished painting the bathroom ceiling, so we just need to get a blind to put up and it will be all sorted

12/05/2013 at 18:59

Evening all!

MC - well done on your long bike ride.  Good news about the bathroom.

Chili - So nice of your big girl to suggest a joint party. Must be really tough on the girl and her family. Well done on the success of your park run too. Excellent! Sorry I can't add to the marathons.......

Franny - well done on getting your run in before the rain. You must be excited now.

I did a 5 miler this morning and then I've been hanging around all day at the kids band practices which were at different times. Sometimes it is a pain living in a small village miles away from all their activities. 

Right better get the kids to bed as they have their music exams in the morning.xx 

12/05/2013 at 19:02

Jude - good luck to the kids for thier music exams. I am sure they will do really well

right, off to club swimming soon, better go and get ready

13/05/2013 at 10:10


Busy here yesterday.

MC-Well done on your bike ride very impressive.Hope you enjoyed your swim.

Franny- I have a 10k race on Sunday - where I am aiming to break the elusive 45 minute barrier (but, in all likley get frustarted again).

Chilli-Sounds like the park run is going well.

Loula- Hope you are now settled in your new home.

Hi Ecky,byeck,Louise etc

7.2 miles for me yesterday, rest today and will don a run 1st thing tomorrow.

13/05/2013 at 10:51

Morning all

Hope the children's music exams go well today Jude

LLB, glad to hear you're settling in to your new home - I have builders in at the moment so will be living in chaos for a couple of weeks, but the damp is pretty bad and the whole house needs painting after having tenants in for a couple of years.

AF sub 45 sounds very challenging....

I did manage to do the hills training session in Greenwich Park on Saturday (tough one), and a long run twice around Richmond Park yesterday (23k) so today is REST day.


13/05/2013 at 16:01

Nice running Louise

My Big Girl is doing SATs this week too. She has been doing extra homework for weeks! Woke up this morning far too early nervous and very excited. Couldn't wait to get to school for breakfast club. And has come out this afternoon very happy and thinks she has done well. Apparently the '5' paper was easy and the '6' paper okay.

Jude - hope your the music exams went well.

MC - well done on getting your bathroom finished!

6 mile tun this afternoon.

13/05/2013 at 16:40

Hi !

Louise - well done on your training over the weekend!

AF - Good to have a goal and you are very close!

Chili - Good luck to big girl for her SATs this week. Well done on your run today.

MC - How was your swim yesterday?

Hi everybody else.

Kids' music exams went smoothly. Just have to wait for the results now.....

Feeling tired all day as I stayed up late watching Prometheus on the box. Sometimes I wish I wasn't so addicted to films...

Gonna try running tomorrow after work. It means running through the village which I don't like doing alone but needs must. Turkish Driving Licence still hasn't come back (it's been about 3 months) so I can't drive anywhere.

evening all

Jude - a pain about your driving licence. 

chili - good luck to your girl for her sats. My boy has tests all week so has demanded some malt loaf for a break snack every day to keep him going

swim last night was good, although my legs were worn out. Finished the day headachy, sore ear and throat so I guess no swimming tonight and will have an early ngiht instead
