Mr By Eck, thats a fantastic loss. You must be feeling amazing. How is Moo doing now?

By Eck, I hope you manage to get some rest later. You must be shattered.

Thanks Franny. It was very strange when I went to the supermarket and saw all the papers out on display with my mush on them. Well done on your run too.

Thanks Ecky.  Not sure how Moo is doing now, but he seems to be getting used to the idea of being tube fed late at night.  He woke up a bit last night but he seemed to settle when I went in.

I just want to say I am chuffed to bits wiv myself  Is that allowed ???

I was looking at my running stats on Fetch and it seems my running hads improved somwehat since I started running in 2009 when I did my 1st ever road race as part of the relay for the Edinburgh Marathon. I did the 8 mile leg and my time was 1.23.39 COMPARE that to Sundays 10 mile race where I got 1.27.07...Amazing...so while your out there running folks and you get the days where it seems you are not improving YOU MOST PROBABLY ARE..

That's a pretty impressive improvement Franny - 25%.  Well done.

Franny thats brilliant and yes you are allowed to be proper chuffed with yourself. Really proud of you too for coming back from injury too.

Hiya Loula.

Moo is eating oxtail stew. He has been poorly most of the day but calpol is wonderful stuff.
Franny, thats a huge improvement. You are super speedy.
Ecky, can we read the article online?
07/03/2013 at 17:45

By Eck, I didn't do an interview this time, it's just a front page pic saying I'm from the Athletics club and SW and that I am into healthy eating. They did say that they will do a follow up with local groups so I'm hoping to get some publicity for our running group.

Glad Moo is having something to eat. He does have very good taste in food.

woohoooo our Ecky is famouuuuussss

Ecky!!!! Congatulations

And to Franny and Mr Byeck and Louise and everyone else.

Just pilates for me today.

Yet another traumatic day for one of my girls. For the past 6 weeks the twins school has been running a reading challenge. For every 6 books read your name gets put into a draw for a Kindle. My No.2 girl decided to win. So she has been reading avidly. Determination, discipline and a touch of obsession to finish 42 books! and these aren't little thin ones but Jacquline Wilson type books. We tired to warn her it was a raffle but since the most anyone else in the school had read was 18 books she was convinced she would win. However it was a girl in her class who had read 6 books who won. Lots of tears and the lesson that even when you work extremely hard life doesn't always work out. Not easy for a 9yr old.

franny and mr by eck - massive well dones

Chili - that is hard for your girl. They could have done it by the number or words read (I think you can get the number of words in a book from somewhere, our librarian seems to be able to do it for the books my tutor group read) rather than a raffle. Hope she at least enjoyed all the books!

shattered after a long day that included a parents evening. just want to sleep now

Morning all!

I'm awake very early worrying about school and the planner and materials I have to write this weekend when I want to be doing something else with the kids etc Might as well start doing some of it now.

Sorry for moaning. 

Well done Franny!

You are famous Ecky! Woo hoo!

Bad luck for your daughter Chili.  What a shame!

MC - hope you had a good rest!

Hi to everybody else!

No run for me today. Moo is poorly and still fast asleep so no nursery. And his tube came out so we'll need the nurses again. Our poor kitchen fitter has to hear the mite complaining. Luckily he is very understanding.
Jude, what is thd time difference between you and US? I'd like to get some idea of how early it is.
08/03/2013 at 08:40


Aw Chilli..thats a shame for your girl..Hope she is ok

By'eck...Poor Moo....he is having a rough time of it...Will the nurses teach you how to pass the tube or would you rather not.????

Jude...I worry bout stuff like that too especially when you would rather be doing something nice.

MC..hope your not too tired today.It's cake day isn't it???

Brrrrrr its freezing here again..just went to gym for some crosstraining.

Have a good Friday

08/03/2013 at 08:46

By'eck - Thinking of you.  Will you have to wait long for the nurse? Does she come to you?

The time difference is 2 hours. I woke at a quarter to five.I'm usually awake by 5.30 anyway as hubby wakes me up when he prays.... I bet I'm getting more sleep than you though By'eck. Hope things improve for you soon.....


08/03/2013 at 08:48

Didn't have time to visit yesterday.

Franny & Mr byeck-Well done... 

byeck-Hope Moo is ok?

Short club run in the rain this morning...then rest.....then Sunday evening party if I do well in my 20 mile race. 

Actually it's Friday so let's go for it....

08/03/2013 at 08:56



Awwwww Chilli, thats just awful and really does seem unfair as she put so much work in. I think they should have had a special certificate or a little something for the most books read too. I know its not easy though.((((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))))

Morning Franny, enjoy the gym.

Morning Jude, Boss and everyone else.

Awwwww By Eck, sending you a special big (((((((((((((((((HUG))))))))))))))))

No running for me today but managed 1h with pretend "Trev" at club last night. I have been offered a backpack so that I can carry him whihc has straps to secure it round my middle. I will need a lot of vaseline though as Im sure I will get some kind of chafe.



08/03/2013 at 13:20


Take care Byeck

Ecky - sounds like you are running well.

Jude - sending hugs to you hun

20 hilly miles on the bike today. Pretty slow cos I was cycling with a friend on her mountain bike, but it was nice to have company.

Franny - well done - it's nice to have the data to look at after all the hard work.

AF don't drink too much - big day Sunday....

My task for today was a 3 hour session - 22k - and 6th run of the week so legses very tired.  Biggest week I ever did at 86k.  Rest tomorrow thank goodness, and at least I don't have to work etc.  You all manage to juggle work / children as well .
