Camlo - I think the idea is I'm running at a normal pace but for a short time, then just brisk walking in between, so I'm not running on tired muscles all the time, I think?? I'll be interested to see what training plan she comes up with.
TT - yes I could hardly stand up from the sofa yesterday morning so it's not surprising my short run hurt! I'm about to do no.3 now...had to have a day off yesterday to recover!
Just had a letter from BT apologising for the terrible customer service I've received and as a gesture of goodwill cancelling the £161 ish they were demanding (insert party face - smileys not working!)! I'm soooo chuffed, it's been going on for over a year when we switched to Sky and basically they said we were mid-contract so had to pay the rest of the contract. I was unaware we had started a new contract, though it did state it in the confirmation email which obviously I didn't read properly! All I was asking was to listen to the phone call when I agreed to it to see if they mentioned a new contract at that point. They've totally ignored my request, then I heard nothing from them since April last year so I wrote to them again in Feb as it was bugging me, and now they've backed down, hooray. Oh and I contacted Ofcom and the Ombudsman as well which may have helped...
Hi Sazzle, ditto what the others have said, listen to your body, don't push yourself too hard and be prepared to stop or slow down if your body gives you signs to do so. If you felt good then that's a good sign, I'd say - well done for doing a 10k race 9 weeks pregnant when you're supposed to be feeling awful !
Camlo - boo to the miserable sods at the race, but well done on 40mins (ish!) - I did an hour and a second twice so feel your frustration!
Well done Caro too, fab racing today on FB. Not seen Lotte's much so keen to hear how things have gone.
My physio texted me a session to try yesterday morning, then she will email me a training plan. It was so basic - 5min brisk walk, 5 min run at 5k pace, repeat, then 10 min brisk walk - but my glutes on one side were absolute agony from this cardio butt workout so it was quite hard work! Anyway not so much pain now which is good, so I'm looking forward to the training plan she's going to send me. Felt sooo frustrating not to be able to go out for my usual run on such a glorious day but I must be patient...
Have been reading but no time to post and now forgotten everything so apologies. We've had a lovely weekend up at Wentworth castle gardens yesterday then to the miniature railway this afternoon. Even posting Avon catalogues with my two monkeys afterwards wasn't bad in the sunshine .
He does have another big dog, which his ex is currently hogging, I never remember the breed as it's quite unusual. Anyway he trained her and bought all the "big" stuff she needed, so at least he is committed, and his new girlfriend already owns a dog so I think it will be well trained. Trouble is they live down south so we don't see them very often, so there's no chance for the dog to get to know the kids. I guess it's with it being such a powerful dog, and I was bitten on the bum by one when I was a child!
Thanks all I didn't make the gym last night as I just had to get my Avon deliveries done as no other time to do them, but went to Body Attack tonight and, though I look a blob in the mirror, really enjoyed it.
Need shower and to finish planning for tomorrow's French lesson, but the cat's snuggling on me in a cute fashion - couldn't chuck him off...
What is anyone's view on Rottweilers by the way? My stupid BIL has just ordered a puppy who is currently 4 weeks old. We tried to talk them (him and his girlfriend) out of it but obviously they ignored us, citing such things as don't expect us to bring the kids to visit and don't bring it near our kids, in nicer words! I really wouldn't be happy having a dog like that anywhere near the kids. Not having a good dog week am I?!
Right must get on. Still a bit grumpy and work is annoying me - received a snotty email from the payroll woman saying I'd done my timesheet all wrong, then another one 4 mins later, apologising, saying she'd tried opening it again and it was all fine ! Also a bit fed up with not feeling included at work, I'm *just* a teacher and don't seem to be involved in any of the trips or other sort of youth work type things we run for the students. Hey ho. Doesn't help only working 1.5 days I guess.
