Sorry to hear you DNF Cheesy but you do sound very positive and you've obviously learned a few things along the way. Wish I could do half that amount Of miles.
Podds, good to hear that the DG is healing well. When Evie was really poorly a few years back I said to her ' don't you dare die on me now you've just cost us a fortune' It worked, that was 7 years ago and she is about 16 now!
Hello, I've spent the last week trying to catch up with everything but every time I thought I was getting there I wasn't.
So..... Very pleased to hear that Amelia made it to the wedding. It will have been fabulous for her. Can't wait to hear all about it.
Pippi, sorry to hear about MIL shock. At least it was quick but must have been awful for Mr P not to say goodbye properly.
Nice to hear DG is doing well. Shame you have lost out on so much because of it but that's what devoted 'parents' have to out up with. My friend missed out on an 11 day Austrian holiday because of her dog too.
Chuggy, I hope that C1 is thawing a bit. It really sounds out of character for her. Sounds like she took the break up with her BF harder than she likes to admit.
Cheesy, well done on the run yesterday. I would be shattered cycling that at the moment.
Great running Yummsie. Sounds like your new Buddhist people are going to be good for you.
Westie, like others have said only you could drop in with a 20 mile walk so nonchalantly.
Tubbs, bliddy great going at the dressage. You did make me laugh with the episode chasing my little ponies around. I can just imagine them thinking it was a great game.
Ive probably forgotten loads of things but catching up two weeks worth wasn't easy.
I got a day or two behind then went to Pickering Traction engine rally for 4 days and had no internet at all. I've been doing a bit of plodding, lots of aqua running, some swimming and walking. I have been getting a very tight glute on the right side and a bit of an achey hip. Not sure if they are related but I am thinking they might be. it doesn't hurt or ache when I'm running just afterwards and I've got the GNR on 7th Sept.
((((((((Podds))))))))) you sound exhausted physically and emotionally. No wise words from me but hope you are taking things steady this weekend in every sense.
Chuggy, why did you put that doggy link on? I want to go straight to Phoenix and adopt them all especially that one that has been there 10 years. Monty, looks exactly what I would expect for you. Hope it all works out for you.
Good luck for tomorrow MC. Hope it's not too hot for you and Meldy. (But hoping it's fine and warm here as it's my birthday and we are going to have a picnic and play by the river).
Noggy, nice to hear you have a quiet, easy weekend.
I did a very hot park run this morning. Got up late (not like me at all, seriously), bolted my brekkie down, got a crick in my neck and the toothache came on again in the car. Nowhere near a PB but nowhere near a PW either, 29.03. Then went and ran the disabled cycling club which was busy this morning.
((((((((((Chuggy Family)))))))))))) it's funny that DL should say that about the Rainbow Bridge as I thought similarly as well. A right old mayhem and madness scene but all friends. Sorry to hear that C1 is unhappy. She has probably been thinking too profoundly and wallowing in her misery. From what you've said she is a bright girl and will realise that what she's said is utterly stupid. (((((((((((More hugs cos you need em)))))))))
Podds, OUTSTANDING! What a fab report but it did sound a bit hellish! You are amazing.
Good luck for the Outlaw Meldy. So you will be a Pirate and an Outlaw, odd considering your job!
Noggy, you're nuts! (That is mentally, not enquiring how parts of your anatomy are).
Sluggy, I was in the pool at 7.30am, I didn't see you!
I was wondering what Larry was trying to tell us about her batteries then remembered what HRM stood for!!!
As OH was working in another town this morning I decided to get on my bike for the first time in 6 weeks and meet up with him there. Then he could bring me home in the van and I could avoid overdoing it. I cycled the 30 miles and was parched when I got there. Met up with him and the van was playing up. We got about half a mile out of town and the clutch went completely. Never mind he had AA cover via his bank. Ninety minutes later they arrived and pronounced the clutch had gone. However he only had breakdown cover and not recovery so he could only tow us to the nearest garage. Sod that, I've got RAC cover with recovery. 90 minutes later they turned up and pronounced the clutch dead. He had tried to get the office to send the truck out to us without him having to come but they said no. Fifty minutes later the truck arrived but I was some distance away as I'd walked back into town to find something (anything) to eat! I ran back. Got home about 18.45. Friend was due to visit 18.30 to 19.00 ish. I dived in and out of the shower so fast that the water hardly had time to greet me. Friend missed her bus so she hasn't arrived yet.
Morning, I feel your pain Podds! Making good reading though.
Also feel your pain Coco. Thankfully I'm not working today but I'm going into the office as a colleague is leaving today after 28 years. I've also got to pick up my birthday present from my team and MCs pressies sort of rang true with me on this. They aren't tacky but they are so not me. I feel very ungrateful but after working with them for 15 months you would think that they would know me better!
Noggy, good to hear you are so enjoying your cycling and making use of the good weather. Have you always been 'good' with hills or has it just come through bloody mindedness? I have improved but still struggle with any sort of incline.
