Big G - I think that's good too - you deserve to win .
Hi LB - "waves" . Are you still running?
Went to the gym yesterday. Did 2 x 15 mins on the seated bike (as that's easier on my back) and 15 mins on the x-trainer where I had to keep slow and steady as I could 'feel' my shoulder. Trouble is I can't wear my sports tops or even a t -shirt as I can't raise my arm to get them on (let alone a sports bra!). I had to wear a cotton zip-fronted l/s top which is all I can manage and it was sooooo hot and sweaty . Still, at least it's a start.
Very frosty and foggy this morning. The frost cleared but the fog hasn't shifted all day. Looks like something out of a horror film. I went out for short walk this afternoon and came back with my hair soaked .
molly - maroon would be ok, unfortunately trolley is mauve - like lilac . When is your half ironman?
snapdragon - good luck for Sunday. Bedford usually do quality 'goody bags' with hoodies, rugby shirts, jackets etc. A couple of years ago I entered Oakley 20 and I remember my daughter saying 'I won't do it if the hoodie is orange...or green...or brown, but I'll do it for any other colour.' Have a good one .
I believe that people are multi-voting for their favourite on the Asics 5 (e.g. from laptop, work computer, I-phone etc.) Just a question of how many 'likes' you usually get on facebook and not much to do with these forums.
Rattler - sorry you didn't make it through to the final 6 . Guess you'll just have to make do with Shadies . Seriously, there is a lot of support and advice on these forums, often from very experienced runners - but you'll have to decide for yourself what to take note of and what to ignore. Do you belong to a running club?
Auranya - yes, sounds like me (easy to spot now ). Do come up and say hello.
S3200H - double ouch . Won't your household insurance cover the trampoline?
Arm still aching/uncomfortable - though easier when sleeping for the past couple of nights. As I have to keep it clamped to my side until Jan I won't find out how little I can move it until then .
Whoop, whoop - youngest son came home this morning (completely unannounced) for 2 weeks R&R . Though no doubt he will spend most of his time with his mates .
Off now with my trolley - I'll try to look chic and Italian .
I have officially joined the ranks of little old ladies - yesterday I bought a shopping trolley . Even worse - I couldn't get a dark colour one and this one is mauve . On Tuesday I carried 5 tins of dog food back from the pet dept at the garden centre and found it really hard work. Daughter will drive me to the shops at the w/end, but I needed to get a few things, hence the trolley. One thing running has taught me - not to worry about what I look like .
Have been out walking and this will be my main form of exercise for the next few weeks. Haven't really started on the list of 'jobs to do when I have time' although now have plenty of time. Also I need to resist the temptation to eat extra cakes
I'm looking forward to seeing photos of Santas and Christmas trees .
((Shades)) - hope your toe is ok. I did that earlier this year and although it stopped hurting quite quickly the toe remained twice the size for ages.
Molly - stay safe. What do you have planned next?
S3200H - hope you can get back to full training soon. I have a dentists appointment for next Feb but I'm already dreading it as I can feel little chips out of a couple of teeth. Actually they feel like craters ....
