Hi Sazzle, ditto what the others have said, listen to your body, don't push yourself too hard and be prepared to stop or slow down if your body gives you signs to do so. If you felt good then that's a good sign, I'd say - well done for doing a 10k race 9 weeks pregnant when you're supposed to be feeling awful !
Camlo - boo to the miserable sods at the race, but well done on 40mins (ish!) - I did an hour and a second twice so feel your frustration!
Well done Caro too, fab racing today on FB. Not seen Lotte's much so keen to hear how things have gone.
My physio texted me a session to try yesterday morning, then she will email me a training plan. It was so basic - 5min brisk walk, 5 min run at 5k pace, repeat, then 10 min brisk walk - but my glutes on one side were absolute agony from this cardio butt workout so it was quite hard work! Anyway not so much pain now which is good, so I'm looking forward to the training plan she's going to send me. Felt sooo frustrating not to be able to go out for my usual run on such a glorious day but I must be patient...
Have been reading but no time to post and now forgotten everything so apologies. We've had a lovely weekend up at Wentworth castle gardens yesterday then to the miniature railway this afternoon. Even posting Avon catalogues with my two monkeys afterwards wasn't bad in the sunshine .
He does have another big dog, which his ex is currently hogging, I never remember the breed as it's quite unusual. Anyway he trained her and bought all the "big" stuff she needed, so at least he is committed, and his new girlfriend already owns a dog so I think it will be well trained. Trouble is they live down south so we don't see them very often, so there's no chance for the dog to get to know the kids. I guess it's with it being such a powerful dog, and I was bitten on the bum by one when I was a child!
Thanks all I didn't make the gym last night as I just had to get my Avon deliveries done as no other time to do them, but went to Body Attack tonight and, though I look a blob in the mirror, really enjoyed it.
Need shower and to finish planning for tomorrow's French lesson, but the cat's snuggling on me in a cute fashion - couldn't chuck him off...
What is anyone's view on Rottweilers by the way? My stupid BIL has just ordered a puppy who is currently 4 weeks old. We tried to talk them (him and his girlfriend) out of it but obviously they ignored us, citing such things as don't expect us to bring the kids to visit and don't bring it near our kids, in nicer words! I really wouldn't be happy having a dog like that anywhere near the kids. Not having a good dog week am I?!
Right must get on. Still a bit grumpy and work is annoying me - received a snotty email from the payroll woman saying I'd done my timesheet all wrong, then another one 4 mins later, apologising, saying she'd tried opening it again and it was all fine ! Also a bit fed up with not feeling included at work, I'm *just* a teacher and don't seem to be involved in any of the trips or other sort of youth work type things we run for the students. Hey ho. Doesn't help only working 1.5 days I guess.
Been reading but not posting as still feeling a bit black cloud ish and liable to moan about nothing!
But I just wanted to say CM, what possible benefit is there to forcing an employee to take holiday when they are about to leave??! Surely you would want them to be doing handover work with a replacement, or tying up loose ends etc, not swanning off on holiday? You can begin a countdown on your calendar, we can all count with you . Absolute minimum effort from you though and NO last-minute travelling!
I feel very hormonal at the moment, it was TOTM but then nothing really happened - seems to be like that some months with a coil - but I feel as if the grumpy/spotty hormones are still lurking despite it being past that time technically . Face like a pizza, extra pessimistic and snapping at kids . I even contemplated applying for a teaching job this week coz I was getting so down about lack of money and general usefulness in life. Hubby told me straight that there is absolutely no way I should apply for it!
Anyway I won't go on as I will descend into a pit of misery and self-pity! Just took the kids to the park and a stupid woman with her child and dog let her dog keep pestering Nicky with his ball, shouting that it wasn't his, but then wasn't paying attention and the dog snatched the ball off Nicky, played with it for a few seconds then punctured it. I had to walk over to her with it and say "your dog has just punctured our ball" . She offered a feeble apology and said she had no money on her or anything so I just muttered it doesn't matter and walked off in a huff!
Right better get tea ready and go to the gym to cheer up I think Back to work/school tomorrow and loads to do!
