Still have computer trouble which is the result of the computer technician at work giving it a good clean! The o seems to be working today at least.
Well, my news is that I haven't gone to Istanbul for the marathon tomorrow. My foot was better, although not a 100%, and I managed 18 miles 2 weeks ago and 10 miles last Sunday and was all set. Daughter got a throat infection last week which I got on Tuesday. I got drugged up and was hoping for a miracle but I'm still coughing and my glands are up. No possible way I could run a marathon. I may attempt my own private marathon when I'm better. My mum says she'll get me a medal if I do! Feeling a bit down, as I've been hoping to do a marathon for nearly 5 years now and I've seen you all do your first and successive maras....If I lived in England I would sign up for another one in a couple of weeks but no such luck here.
Franny - well done on your training! Sounds very hard core!
AF - Oh no!! Hope you feel better soon. Don't push yourself. I hope it's nothing serious.
Hi Silver Trucker!
Hubby has cooked dinner, it's on the table! Gotta go! What a lovely man!!!
Franny - well done on your 10 miler and your track session. Sounds great!
MC - well done on getting through your first half term. It sounds like you did the right thing in changing schools! Hope you feel better soon and that you enjoy your 2 nights away.
AF - Glad to hear you are getting fast again! Enjoy your first park run!
Well I didn't run on Thursday or today because of logistical reasons. (Little son has a cold so he didn't go swimming so I had to go home with him after school.) May be a good thing though as foot is still a bit crap. Gonna try a short run on Sunday and Tuesday and then hopefully a long one on Wednesday as we have a day off for 'Republic Day'. That's the plan anyway. (It's now 10 days with no run.....)
Busy day tomorrow ferrying kids. Little 'un has started science club at school on a Saturday which he is enjoying. He loves his new school but he has a lot of homework and he usually doesn't get in from school until 7.30pm (he stays for swimming). He is 7 years old!! This is pretty common though for private schools here.
Don't think I'm getting het up. Truth is, I have a grand total of 1 marathon a year I can choose from here in Turkey and if I'm not fit enough to run I'll have to wait another year. I desperately want to do it but my foot is PAINFUL! Going to give it a try on Thursday, but I'm not running at all at the moment!!!!
Just back from a department jolly!! It was fun! Nice people etc but had to leave early as youngest was finishing a swimming training.
If this thread does die hope to be seeing you all on other threads on runners world or facebook! bfn xxxx
