I am reading this thread as I am hoping to do comrades in 2016 for my 40th. Its been an ambition for YEARS!
I wondered if anyone knew if the jw ultra could count for qualification? I came across the race on Saturday whilst on a girls weekend in Stratford and quite fancy it. Just pondering my qualification. Also anyone know the approx difference between starting in the sub 4 pen and the sub 4.20 pen? I believe there is a pen for club runners between them.
JG - agree with others. Go and ask. They are being unfair on you. People can often be so cowardly at work and would sooner ignore calls than just be decent and tell people what is going on, even if its a 'i dont know now'. Keep off the cakes. Sugar is super addictive. I've done really well this year as i had so much baby weight to lose (over 20kgs after the baby came out!) but as soon as i have any cake, sugar, chocolate, i just crave it the next day and the next and the next. It might just be me as i know some people can take it or leave it, but i struggle. I do love to eat though
Minks - hope the periformis behaves itself. I remember mine had some issues years ago and my physio got in there and loosened it up. I sweated with pain.... Hope the half goes well on Sunday.
Brookie - walking 26.2 miles is not to be sniffed at. No wonder you were hungry!
CM - hope the mystery pain goes away. Did the work issue go away or are you not allowed to say on here?
So we had an offer on the flat - hooray. The house we wanted was still available but only just, they were about to take another offer so we just got in. The costs of moving are truely awful but hopefully we wont move again for a long time. I know it's only the first step on the awful process of buying in the UK, but I will just keep fingers crossed. The school applications process closes on Jan 15th so we want to be in by then. I found out this week though, that if you move after the closing date, they will allocate you to the waiting list according to your address. I always assumed that we would go to the bottom of the list. I go back to work Dec 10th. Hoping we can move before then, but we'll have to see.
Caro - hope you are feeling ok. Glad it looks like the exercise is ok to keep up. You are so speedy, much respect.
Just watching the bake off. After my comment above on sugar and cake, it's probably not a good idea. Always makes me want cake!
