i haven't read back yet, I will try and skim the last couple of pages..........
I am still here just not read the thread for a couple of weeks. Keep up with some of u on FB a bit though at least.
Caro my love I hope u are starting to feel better, sounds horrible. Massive hugs to u and also hope Eric is better and gets on good in his nativity play tomorrow. So cute what he has said about getting back in your bed when daddy goes back to HK, bless.
All fine here, the usual manic time of year as is the same for us all I guess. Freezing cold/ snow/sleet here this week. Road pretty icy today. First wee run outside this week this morning, did a 45 min plod in my old trail shoes with ice spikers on them. Was lovely. My 3 cycles have been on the turbo and my other 2 runs on the treadmill. Have got one 45 min swim in but really should have done 2 swims of an hour each. Oooooooooops already failed in week 1 of my training. It's 31 wks now until ironman UK, oh flip I am thinking I have bitten of way more than I can chew!!!!!
Caro- sorry to hear u may have to have radiotherapy, what a shame it's dragging n for longer. You are doing great. Big hugs to u (((((())))))
Hope everyone else is doing ok and the blacks clouds are lifting. I have felt ok this week, whew!
Did a 2 mile pool swim last week, yay but very boring and took 1 hr 31 which is a bit slow. Swimming needs a lot of work. Running does also, oh and the biking. I really hope with 6 months of training I can get faster in all 3 disciplines or I will not make cut of it times.
How come men seem to be able to do that eh, so unfair. My hubby doesn't cycle much but when he does he is way faster than me, mind you that wouldn't be hard, lol!
Great cycling ladies! And running, especially getting up hills, whoop whoop.
I have a fairly basic turbo I bought second hand couple of years ago, doesn't do anything fancy but does the job. Get some sufferfest on your computer and bobs your uncle!!! I sometimes watch a film and do intervals. Haven't been on it yet this part of the year! Going to stick my tri bike on it soon though.Although I haven't yet had a proper ride on it as the weather has preen pretty dire all week. Hopefully get out on it this week before I stick it on the dreaded turbo.
Yip CC, weather awful today & I did a cycle event in the Black Isle. Oh my the wind and rain was brutal, I am tired tonight. Only 1 hr 56 of pain but felt like hours!!!! Road and off road, in a team of 2 so one do the road part and the other the off road or solo. I did it solo so rode my mountain bike the 23 miles. Oh painful!!! But fun. New event this year.
Well done on all the packing, best of luck with the move x
Turbo -- i have lots of dark clouds also, boo hiss, hope yours lift soon (((()))).
Not keeping up,well at the moment, must try and read thread more often. On phone at moment, in the car with girls, hubby in Tesco.
Hope Lotte & Brookie got on well today & Camlo doing cross country & anyone else i maybe missed racing??
I want to run away for a few days but guess i cant?!!!!!! Lol
wow i am on computer and it is so much easier to type etc than on the ipad, and much quicker so i will actually write a wee message instaed of just reading!!!!
Flip CM, your work does sound nuts and your deputy sounds a right topper, definantly didnt deserve the job.
The weddings all sounded fun and Camlo have a great holiday, sounds great.
Caro- hope your count was high enough for you to get chemo, fingers crossed. Well done also for continueing to get out there and bike n run, amazing.
Pip- well done on the run, sounds lovely. It seems to be taking me a long time to get back into running but i am only doing about 2 runs aweek and one of them is often on the treadmill as i dont want to push it too much as knee still wee bit achy at times. I ran 3 miles when did school/nursery drop of and then another 3 when i went back to get M from nursery. Got totally soaked and was then freezing. Put the log burner on for the first time this morning in a few weeks and nearly filled the hopuse with smoke. Stung my eyes, had to open all the windows n doors and cant go in the sitting room yet!! Must be something blocking the chimney, que several frantic calls to hubby!!! So the heating was put on and M has been cosy in the toyroom watching a dvd.
Pip_ it is a tri bike i am getting, i hope i like it and havent wasted my money. I am hoping that getting in a more aero position I will be able to save my legs slightly for the shuffle round the marathon. Oh and Chrissie Wellinghton, she is awesome!!
