Just checking in for the first time in ages to see how everyone is doing.
Sorry to hear about your news Caro. Not what you need, but sounds like you caught it quickly and it is being dealt with swiftly. My Mum had grade 3 breast cancer which had spread to her lymph nodes in 1998. It was taken out, and he had chemo and touch wood has been fine since. Wishing you a speedy recovery x
Not really read back too much more but will do.
I second the ITB not stretching. It is fascia and one of our lecturers showed us a study of a cadaver being pinned up by the ITB band and it not stretching one millimetre.
Does he speak or make speaking noises Caro? My friends girl has been "diagnosed" with Global delayed development which is a bit of an umbrella term I think for they aren't sure what's up. She doesn't speak (she is 3.5) and is very tactile and didnt walk until she was over 2.
I also started my degree last weekend, which is 5 years part time...every other weekend. It's very full on and the anatomy needs to be learnt to such a high level, so i'm feeling very overwhelmed by it all. I'm hoping revision techniques and learning methods come back to me pretty quickly!
Boo to poorly children, worms...(we had them a few months ago) and bad calfs. That has taken a while to heal CM.
Lotte - brilliant on your marathon time. Yes on a flat course I am sure you will comfortably do a sub 3. So London next year?
I did a half back at the end of July which was very disappointing as I tore my calf two weeks before, I did 1.58, then did a much more enjoyable half at Windsor yesterday and finished in 1.52 which I am pleased with as it was pretty undulating and hot.
The F word... oh boy, when we came back from our travels L told her Grandpa to put his effing fork down whilst eating lunch one day. She was only 3.5!! Goodness only knows where that came from. Luckily she knows what to say and what not to say now.
Boo to mean girls too JG. Can you tell her to ignore them and play with someone else? Luckily L tends to play more with boys who seem to be less cliquey and mean...
Anyway, crying baby woken from her nap early. Back later.
