CONGRATULATIONS to you all and a massive well done, all fabulous times.
Nick - 3:38 is amazing, you should give yourself more credit......
Left Foot - I can relate to you, i have twin girls (20 months old) and work full time, shift work and so does my bloke so my faster days are are gone for now (but I wouldn't change things for the world). I still love running and put as much time into it as I can. Well done to you, I couldn't imagine running a marathon at this present time......
Beders - Sorry to hear about your bad back. JBSS - I'm amazed you are still running, good on ya!!
Nick - Thought I'd not seen you out and about, hope your well - apart from being lazy. Ha Ha. Kristiina is doing the same Tri I think.
Well the last year has flown, my girls will be 1yr on the 3rd September!! I went back to work on 6th Aug so I don't have much time to run anymore but managed to get out three times this week - 1x 7m, 1 x 5m and 8m today. On nights now till next thurs so not sure when i'll next get out!!.
Most of you will know I was expecting twins...Well they were born 8 weeks early on the 3rd of September.
Rhiannon was born at 0616 3lb 6oz and Elllie at 0618 4lb 4oz. I had an emergancy C section, Ellie had breathing problems at first - when I went in to hospital they examined me and her leg was already coming out and was shocked with having to be pulled back out - as they were both breach there was no chance I could have them natural!! They were both in special care (SCBU) for 4 weeks but came home on 1st Oct. (needless to say I will be running the FLM for SCBU next time, obviously not 2009!!)
Clairstar and Nick (and JBSS as she txt me yesterday) already know but I think have left the news for me to post...Anyway all is well now - Ellie now 5lb 10.5oz and Rhiannon 5lb 4.5oz.
I went for my first run on Mon - I managed 5 miles, it killed me but I will hopefully get back into the swing of things soon. I swam 50 lenghts today and planning on running with the club tomorrow.
Thanks everyone for the congrats.I have a permanent smile on my face .
Beders - Its gonna be hard work getting back to running with the twins not sure I fancy running with a double buggy, but I'm sure my blokey won't mind me popping out for a run - he's always been very supportive of my running.
Nick - Happy Birthday for tomorrow, its my mum's birthday tomorrow too!! Hope you have a wicked race - you must be due a PB at 10k, with the weather a bit cooler I have my fingers crossed for you. I've been swimming at Edmund Wilson Pool - its nice and handy for me being just round the corner.
JBSS - Good Luck and make sure you txt to let me know how you get on. Yeah, pls could you forward me the article - I get RW but must have missed it!! Doh.
Nick - Good Luck at Melmerby - one of my all time favorite races, I did 45.19 there last year - flat as a pancake. Its a shame I'm on nights at the mo else would have come to watch you, let me know how you get on also.
I went for my first scan tody ang guess what, I'm having TWINS!!!!! Non-identical and possibly two girls, but that will be confirmed at my next scan in three weeks time - No wonder my belly is getting big .
I've managed 2 x 4m & 1 x 5m run in the last week but think I may stick to swimming after todays news???!!!!
