We're planning to go to Hastings one day this week.
I managed to survive the 'massive' earthquake at 2:55am this morning. The epicentre was about a mile from us.
I woke up to go for a wazz and as i stood over the loo there was a strange bang and then the house shook and my shaving foam fell off the bathroom shelf which was fun. As a looked out of the velux window into the street i could see a neighbour pacing up and down his drive in his underwear looking up and down the road.
I have to ask though, is it the fact that he told you what you wanted to hear or that he gave you a £20 discount that makes you "really happy with the new physio" If he told you not to run for 3 months and charged you full whack would he be shit ?
Mace - Lou and I are both ex-smokers too. I stopped finally about 9 years ago I think. But had about 3 or 4 years before that where I only really stopped socially or in phases of stress. I'm a horrible ex-smoker though. Hate it. Especially as my Mum has COPD as a result of smoking. Anyway, well done Mrs Mace.
Although i started smoking at 18, i had spells of 3 years, 6 years and the odd couple of months here and there where i gave up, all of them cold turkey. So i was only a 'proper' smoker for about 10 years. Mrs m has had a few attempts to give up after her mum died of lung cancer but this time i think she might have nailed it ( *touches wood* ) and it will help her if she has some sort of fitness activity where she should see and feel the benefits in a relatively short time.
Happy Birthday for yesterday, Lou
And well done to Charlie on another parkrun pb, i somehow missed that yesterday.
Good luck at the physio, Skinny
A few injury worries for the thread at the moment and i hope you can all kick them into touch.
DT - i was indeed a smoker but gave up 10 years ago when my twins were 3 yrs old and carrying them up to bed then running back down to the TV was knackering me out. Infact, i'm a slower, fatter, older version of Steve Way. Good luck on the plane
Skinny - yes, i'm going with her. My kids are calling her Mum Farah !!
How are you coping with not running at all ? I expect it will have been quite easy for a couple of weeks as it was for me but i'm starting to want to run more now so i expect it's becoming frustrating for you.
