Boo to feeling tired and stressed still, being on your own at bedtimes, sore back, fussy eaters, sugar fiends and work demands.
Yippee to swimming, fab running clubs, farms and running for scotland!!!!
CM - would rather a cold wet yomp to a spa weekend???? You are totally mad.
interesting discussions about diets - i am getting thoroughly confused with it all. One expert says yes carbs, the next says no, some say no red meat the next says yes as long as its grass fed, low fat, high fat, eggs, olive oil...... Arrrgh.
Mum slowly improving so i am trying to limit how much it affects me. Finished work and drove straight to pool for 30mins with fins, run club for an hour of hill reps then home and 30 mins on the turbo.....
She took a lot of pills but i guess she could have assumed her husband would come around lunchtime. She had a GCS of 3 and was not rouseable when the ambulance got there but by the time she had vommed and had a drip for a few hours she is at least opening her eyes to pain stimuli. She cant speak yet and is twitching and retching despite anti-emetic.
Arse. Mum took a massive overdose today, thankfully i went round to check she was ok and found her (well technically her husband found her but was just holding her hand and hadnt phoned an ambulance). I called 999 and help took 20 mins to arrive but she is in hosp now and nothing we can do until she wakes up.
i thought the bad weather and storms were set to hit everyone Brookie! Certainly felt the icy sleet being blown in my face during this mornings run. Beautiful in parts but as the cloud descended and we were getting spaced out i was very worried about one of our club members who has less fat than a sparrow and gets cold very quickly. It is nice to go trogging over the wilderness but not so good when we are all mixed ability.
IM isnt until July but definately trying to copy your fat burning Lotte. Not carb loading before sessions and trying to keep heart rate down which will be essential on the day. I cant stomach gels so want to fuel on real food.
Just put a huge order in for approved foods - they have flapjacks and nut bars on offer aswell as choc for hubby Lunchbox. can save a bomb if they have stuff you actually want (which often they dont!)
Caro - hope back eases, go steady x
Back to school grind tomorrow, Archie already tantrumming in protest......
