Oh no JP! That sounds a bit miz 

Well done Mikasa for starting again.

Well, my lack of training through December is very apparent. But I always feel better and more positive in January so have just completed a 5 mile run. 

Anyone want to come over for coffee and finish up the Christmas stollen? I restrict our chocolate intake to Saturday Sweetie Day, but I think we are going to have enough to last for months!

JP - oh dear, hope you get put back together soon. And remember to rest!

I'm actually feeling quite tired from yesterday's effort so wondering if going for a gentle swim tonight is advisable or if I should just rest. Lane swimming is very late as well, 9-10pm. 

How's everyone's training going for the spring HM's?

 Badly afraid i think I now have a chest infection so this weeks been a little poor. Seeing the GP tomorrow. Still would much rather have a issue in jan instead of may or something.

Nom stollen - only had one piece this year I was very good with respect to Stollen Oh no JP - take it easy mate hope the physio can duct tape you together so you can get on with it!  And you cake!  Altho' tbf there has been a respiratory virus going round here at the moment it laid hubby low - he had to wear manpants (his thermal longjohns) and socks and was a bit perturbed by it all (he wears tshirts and shorts pretty much all year round).

hhmm...I think we have a lidl stollen in the cupboard...

JP/Cake - get better soon...take it easy.

I did a gentle 5k just now to see how it felt.  Aren't there a lot of joggers about at the moment?  It's a lovely day up here, clear, still and no that cold.

keep it going folks!

We had a massive pig out to get rid of all the unhealthy food from Christmas so we didn't keep eating it, made sense at the time.

Cake, hope you make a speedy recovery

just got me a Turbo Trainer from Decathlon, off to physio in a mo to get beaten into shape

keep up the great training folks, And the stollen

I have been for my little run, I nearly had a case of CBA but kicked myself up the bum and went. I decided to run a usual route but in reverse and so pleased I did because I had a lovely mile downhill with the wind behind me.I still had a few walk breaks but it is getting less.

First spin class of the new year tomorrow, yippee.

(((Cake))) Hope you're on the mend soon mate.

Well done steady, not always easy to make that first step, glad it worked out so well for you.

08/01/2014 at 18:13

evening all

JP - oh no, what have you done? Hope the physio sorts it out

cake - rest and get some antibiotics and get better soon

well done steady

woke up in time for a nice 4 mile plod this morning and went to the gym after work! Didn't really feel like the gym but I want to keep up the strength work I started in the holidays and enjoyed it. Had a giggle to myself about a teenage girl who seemed to be in the gym just because boyfriend was - she was so relieved when he said he had finished. What a date!

It is new years resolution madness at the gym, oh well, it won't last long and it will be back to the regulars again. 

Just seen there is going to be a new Oly in Cambridge at the end of the season

interesting, although not sure about a river swim!

Rain, rain, rain! Got soaked going home but there wasn't a howling gale so felt that was a win definitely felt easier than last night.  Forced myself out the door again fro the run only 20 minutes tho' was busting best laid plans and all that!

Good going Buttercup. I'm taking the day off, easing into it.

08/01/2014 at 20:01

Cake - great news! But haven't received an email...

08/01/2014 at 20:41

hmmm...why am I starving?  I had a good lunch - pasta and salad, and then for tea it was a double helping of rice and quorn spicy sauce...but I'm absolutely starving now?

Has anyone got any good anti snacking schemes or at least something I can eat that'll fill me up without expanding my belly any further than it does already?

08/01/2014 at 22:30

Protein and slow release carbs Pete

09/01/2014 at 07:32

ok, thanks, I'll start reading up on such things.  I've been veggie for 28 years, so "proper ham" isn't an option

I've never really bothered to read up on those fad diet things, I guess I need to!

09/01/2014 at 10:30

Pete, when Im hungry between meals I grab a handful of nuts and neck a pint of water , that usually sorts me out.

Cake, thanks for message, just replied 

Had fun at the Physio,  I seem to have an anterior hip rotation problem, had a brutal deep tissue massage for 20mins before being put through my paces with pelvic exercises, the plank, the bridge and the plank with one leg and one arm extended, I asked how often I need to do them, once or twice a day?  No, once every 2 hours every day ! Sheez, no running for a week either pffft had a swim this morning and seemed ok but got some funny looks in reception as my alarm bleeped and I dropped into the plank position, a few people recognised the exercise as I heard them mutter "plank" under there breath.

09/01/2014 at 12:14

The first 7 days went fine for me (re: eating healthier and better and less)  but I'm really starting to struggle not to give into my cravings now. I really want a can of cold coca cola now...but I'm resisting. Still.

Thanks for the link ButterCup.

JP - the image of you dropping down every time your alarm goes off made me smile. What if you're outside and it's raining? Will you just barge into the nearest shop?

09/01/2014 at 16:53

JP - are you planking at work too?

tired but it is swim smooth session tonight so better sort myself out, eat, feed kids etc and get myself ready!
