Minks, I am guilty of that too! Hopefully as the spring approaches (it's March but I don't think the weather has realised!) you'll have a belting 20 miler to get that confidence boost. Sounds like you are in great shape as ever
Vixo - haha, it was steady to say the least! Finishing time was 10:50 - including many stops for checkpoints, toilets, falls and getting lost Average moving pace was about 12-13 min miles I think.
Caro - I've been trying mindfulness too. I have an awful tendency to both dwell on the past and what I should/could have said or done, or worry about the future. It's not easy to break the habit of a lifetime but I am trying! It certainly helps.
Things are better here, if a little flat. That's the only way I can think of to describe it! We are together and trying to take each day as it comes. Of course, I'd like the hearts and flowers, but I guess the bigger picture is more important. I do worry that if someone else came along with the hearts and flowers, I would struggle to say no...but that's me not being very mindful again, isn't it?! Don't really want things any more complicated than they are already, do I now?
How's little one today, PG? Better I hope. What a useless solicitor you have there Not what you need right now!
Camlo - that's truly lovely I do like the sound of that course though - maybe that's something a few of us could do together at some point instead of a race
LOL CM! I mean, what a twonk but yes, I know another Jag driver who is occasionally a tad arrogant...
Finally got a date through for my scan, hooray. It's a week on Saturday. Hoping there'll be nothing to see but it will be nice to have the reassurance. I'm still spotting all the time which is a right pain, and I am like a zitty teenager! Could possibly be explained by stress I suppose. Hmmph.
Have had a really nice week this week Lots of meeting up with friends and getting out and about. Went to a new baby group today with some people I used to work with, which was fun. We already do one on Mondays, but this one is a bit busier. G seemed to enjoy it, which is the main thing. It's down the road from school and finishes just before home time, so it's convenient too. Also went to see a new counsellor - she focuses on relationships. She's fab! Looking forward to working with her - have got six sessions on my own and then we are going to start couples' therapy.
Right, early night for me as I am shattered! G was up at 5.30 today and hasn't slept much so I need my bed
Huge hugs PG I really hope something works out for you soon. Not a good place to be My sort of nice but I probably shouldn't find it nice news is that Ben is looking for another job. He is desperately unhappy. The being directed back to work in Coventry has come with a change in role that he detests. He thinks they are trying to manage him out. So he's looking at moving back into a university position as head of international or something similar. Nottingham are looking ATM. That would be OK. And things are improving all the time.
Had a good run today too, even if it was freezing! Have to say though, every time I felt cold, I told myself to stop being a wuss and get on with it because it wasn't the Spine!! CC, hope you're still resting on a Mars Bar drip Can't wait to hear.
Gah, CM - guess the answer to having so many people to manage is a resounding no!
