hello! I'm just heading down to London. Just wanted to pop in to say good luck to everyone els doing VLM. my number is 1930. I'm running for National Autistic Society, wearing a purple, white and pink vest. shout if u c me, i;ll catch up properly on monday. x
well hallloooo!Sorry I haven't been on, I just don't get the time nowadays, but I do think of you all often! I was thinking about Hegs the other day actually....anyone heard from her?
Hope those of you with snow are keeping warm!
Fab half Johbo, very well run indeed!
Caro, my mum also likes a drink, she always brings a bottle of wine with her when she comes to visit...she must think we don't sell it in Gloucester! She drinks really cheap, crap wine too - yuk!
Camlo, good for you for getting out there and running, it can only help keep that black cloud at bay.
All's well with me and mine. I think Abigail may be bi-polar!! Her mood swings are just incredulous. I, of course, blame myself for putting her with a childminder. She is always demanding my attention and cuddles off me when I'm around, nobody else will do. I would love to spend all my time cuddling her, but unfortunately I have to make tea/bath her/make packed lunches etc etc when I get in. Billy's doing brilliantly. He's 9 months now - where did that time go! He's such a happy little lad - I miss him sooooooo much when I'm working and feel guilty that I've not given him the attention that I gave Abi at that age! I'm currently looking for a part time job in the hope it will help balance out my work/family life. Of course, getting VLM out of the way should buy me more time with my lovely babies!
I did my last long run this weekend. I notched up 22 miles and it wasn't too bad. i was grinning like a lunatic when I hit 20 miles. Psychologically it's a good number to reach I think. It was by no means speedy (4hrs 10), but I don't care, I just want to get round on the day.
Right, I'm off to my scratcher but I'll try and pop in more often.
I was just posting on another thread re an arm issue I've got and thought it would be rude not to pop in for a cuppa as I'm in the area.
I've not read but the last page - sorry. I believe congrats are in order for caro though. When was he born, what's his name? I had a mahoosive pile after Billy was born so I feel your pain. It still flares up now and again too
I hope you're all well and enjoying the sunshine. I'm off to tend to a toddler who has "dicky hands" now....where did I put those wipes.,,,,,,
I'm currently training for my first ever marathon (London). All's going well but after any run over 30 minutes or so my left arm goes numb. I think it may be a circulation thing as my right hand is warm at the end of my run whereas my left arm is cold with white fingers and swollen! I thought it might be my garmin or wedding ring that's causing it but it's the same even if I don't wear them.
Any advice to what it could be? I ran 14 miles this morning and my arm still feels like it's recovering from a dead arm now and it's half five!
