mamafox - OMG that must have been really frightening. You neighbour needs to do something about controlling her dogs, what if that had been one of your children instead of you. Don't you need to go to hospital/docs for a dog bite?
At least little one's op went OK, I guess vomiting is reaction to the anaesthetic (I had breakfast early today, thanks), hope he's OK and bucket duties will cease.
My Mum still lives on her own in sheltered housing, doesn't have any carers and is only on meds for osteoarthritis, but she is fairly frail and had got very thin in the last year, but she likes being thin, says it the first time in her life when hasn't had to watch her weight. I'm always trying to get her to eat more. I do her shopping and I don't think she even goes up town now on her own.
I dropped my gym membership as I didn't go that often and they no longer do kettlebell classes as the tutor left. I originally joined the gym so I could use the dreadmill if we had icy weather, but after 3 winters with barely a day's running curtailed by ice I didn't see it worth keeping the membership going. If I have more time I like going to the gym but when I'm working full time I just find it too hard to schedule it in. I do sometimes do some kettlebell at home, am trying to get in the routine.
Just going to Google Beauceron dogs now.
Got soaked coming out of Lidl's, I've got drenched twice today, am now on my 3rd set of clothes and it's not 10am yet!
Emmy - can't believe it's nearly time for the quad again, seems to come around quickly. I do hope for you the weather improves, would be much better if he could put that on in the summer.
KK - great news that you will make your 100 miles this month.
If you mean that I might tell you off for doing footy with a dodgy calf, I would have if you had a marathon in the next week or so.
Big G - sorry to hear you've picked up a bug, that's what happens when you go over the border to Cornwall. Hope you're feeling better soon.
I think it's better that you travel onto Bruges for your break after the funeral, is the funeral in London? Will be good for you to get away for a couple of days.
Must be the 5 miler in Exmouth that you've entered, nice little race.
Had to abort my run this morning due to ice. Was cold but not icy at home but as soon as I'd run about a mile the pavements were treacherous as we had rain last night. I saw a gritter lorry but it wasn't gritting, went past me while I was trying to stay upright on the ice. I carried on by running in the gutter on the road but it was getting worse so came back on a trail and then ran a little bit round town, few more patches of ice and cold icy rain., had to call it a day.
SK - quite a demanding schedule but you seem to be coping quite well, tiredness is the curse of the distance runner
At least if the weather's bad you'll be able to get some workout done in that gym, amazing value
I hope I do inherit those genes, not sure if I'd be able to do a marathon at 94 though, I'd get an invitation to London if I was still running at that age. My Mum used to walk up to 5 miles a day until she was about 84 or so, she had a fall and broke her ankle then and never got her confidence back after that.
Jugula - good news your calf was OK last night. Running on the treadmill does mean you're running without any change in terrain or cadence and can aggravate a niggle. You may be right and needs some stretching out. Will be interesting if you take your foam roller and have your luggage searched
