DJ, really hope your mum improves. And big hugs to you as you dust off your garmin and trainers. We are all here to cheer you on.
Does ice skating class as cross-training? Just had a wonderful 50mins with my girlies on an empty ice rink. Should be doing a bike ride today but am feeling very can't-be-bothered about getting my bike out.
morning Tom - how are you? granola flapjack sounds great
Chili...I would say that ice skating is very good crosstraining...and fun to...glad you had a lovely time
MC...good luck with upping your cadence...I would have no idea how to..sounds too technical to me...lol..I'd probably end up falling over thinking about what I and where my ankle etc should be.
Deejay...hope your mum umproves soon and don't worry abiut the weight loss it will happen as you get back into your running routine again...good luck.
Tom...your flappyjacks sound great.
Mr Chilli..great pic of the new year runners
Jude...what a lovely pic of your gilrlie...you must be a proud proud mummy...hoe you got your marking done.
AF...hows you foot today Boss.
Helllooooooooooooo everyone else
No running for me today...I seem to have lost my get and go...can you help me find it pleez.
Byeeeeeeeeeeee for now
franny - yeah, I have lost mine today too - I think because I slept badly though, I had intended to get up and have a run before OH went to work, but as I was awake half of the night, I decided to stay in bed and get some sleep, then the kids started arguing at 6:30. When they got up the big one managed to bash the little one's thumb with a door, cue loads of crying and screaming, no wonder I have lost my get up and go.....think it went without me.....
There's a DVD voucher I've got that needs using: I might do a 'town to town' run for the first time in order to spend it. It's not outside my distance comfort zone, but I usually keep runs local - this'll be the first time going on a run outside my immediate area.
Of course I could get the bus, but why do that when I can combine the trip with a run?
that sounds like fun RR!!
right, going to make the kids some popcorn, sit them in front of a movie and do a turbo session! might liven me up a bit
DJ-Fingers crossed for you and good to here that you have weight and running goals.
Well I still have an achey achilles - I think it may be slightly strained so have been told to ice it and see how things go. Will see how things go,but, unlikey be going to running club- need to do 4.5 miles this week fro the 20 plus week No 99 so may weight until the weekend.
well, feel better for having done the turbo. Don't really feel like runnng, so going to leave my run till tomorrow, have club swim later anyway.
AF - take care of that achillies
Yep, it was a worthwhile trip. I found I what I wanted (Jurassic Park Trilogy Steel boxset) and because it had gone down in price, I was able to get The Eagle as well for £1 - because that had also dropped in price - the voucher itself was for £10. Felt a bit sluggish on the run itself, but I think that was probably because I left straight after eating - note to self: that doesn't really work well. I didn't eat much though.
It was fun though, it felt like a mini solo marathon.
I want to strengthen my legs, so am going to add a hill running session to my routine. So it'll probably go something like: 'ordinary' run (around 5k) hill session (around 6 or 7k) and maybe a 10k to finish at the weekend.
Edit: Well, the run might have felt a bit sluggish, but according to MapMyRun, I did it at an average pace of 05:54 (miles per minute I suppose?) That's faster than I've gone before.
Got things a bit the wrong way round - that wasn't my fastest average, but still good pace for me.
Well any optimism over my mothers condition was eroded again today.The infection has not cleared much at all,and we have been told to prepare for the worst.Her condition has gone downhill very badly in the last 24 hours,and she is very weak.Thanks for all your kind thoughts and words.It really helps.Sorry to be starting the new thread off on such a downer.
I think finding time for a run this weekend will be difficult,but i'm definately going to go at some point.It may be in the middle of the night,but i'll get out there at some point.
AF,you be careful with that heel,and rest it properly.We had enough of those problems on here last year.
It is good that those who had some really horrible injuries last year,are back running again.
Just seen a cool t-shirt.It says TOWIE on the front,and THE ONLY WAY IS ENNIS on the back.
Awww, DJ, don't fret about us. You know that here in CRAC Towers we are always supportive no matter what is happening. We are just concerned for you. Thoughts and prayers are with you.
No run or bike so will have to make do with the ice skating. Will have to try harder tomorrow. Kind of looking forward to the girls going back to school now although we've had a great Christmas holiday.
My mum has damaged the cartiliage in her knee and now needs a stick to get around. The physio told her the truth, that it's going to be a long and painful recovery so I guess she's just got to keep up with her exercises and keep taking the painkillers.
Hopefully the coming days will bring better news for you, DJ. (Hugs). We're all hoping for the best here.
AF - take it easy! Who knows what'll happen to CRAC Towers if you're out for a long time...
LLB - not running at all at the moment (day 7). Foot still aches in the mornings. decided to go back onto anti-inflam, for a couple of days. Looks like chances of even taking it easy on the marathon 25 Jan receding rapidly, it would just do too much damage.
Enviously reading about other people's runs....
Aw Deejay (((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((HUGS)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) Don't be worrying about us that is what we are here for on here...the good ,the bad and the sad times.
Louise....I know only too well what its like not to be able to run...I hav just got bac into it after an 8 week out with achilles injury..so so frustrating.
RR..good bargain there and well done on your run.
MC...well done on your turbo and swim session...hope you got out for your run this morning.
Loula..yayyyyyyyyyyyy looking forward to you both coming up to Scotland.
AF...hows the ankle/foot today ?????
Well wee Chico is not well...he has a bit of a doggy virus ..off his food (which is not like him) just not his usual chirpy cheeky self...hope he picks up soon. Mr Franny away boat fishing today so don't think i will get out a run...will see how it goes as don't really want to leave the little chap on his own.
Just passing through in between doing a quote or three at work
Deejay - sorry to hear your news, don't forget we're here for good and bad.
Hello everyone else, runners, injured people etc etc
I had a short run with Liz last night, only about 7km, but she's still got a niggly knee, so trying to build fitness levels back up, and ignore the knee, and worry about it all at once it is a bit of a struggle for her at the moment. Still, we had a nice run, and a laugh so... Going to do another short run tonight, and some more when we get back to hers for the weekend, then after that I'm going to go back to training on my own more as I really need higher mileages to prep for the races I have planned. I can then do my recovery runs with her for company
What's everyone got planned for the weekend? Anyone up to anything exciting?
DJ - sorry to hear your news, big (((((((hugs)))))))) from me
gosh my shoulders are really aching after the club swim last night
little boy was sick in the night, so my planned gym session is off as he won't be doing his squash session. I am hoping he is ok this afternoon as I have an appointment to get their hair cut - don't want him throwing up at the hairdressers! Hopefully I will either go to the gym or for a run when OH gets back from work
MC...hope little boy feels better soon and that you get out for a run later.
Hiya Rocker.....don't work too hard m'lad.
