Managed 4.5 mile run yesterday including two hill reps. Knee hurt at about 4 miles. did 3 miles on dreadmill the day before. I think it might be an improvement but not a significant one Off to see lovely osteo lady on Friday so perhaps she will wave a magic wand but not holding breathe!!
Caro - your weekend sounded fantastic, glad you had such a lovely lovely time.
I am another smelly runner!!! Yesterday I did a 4.5-miler in the forest between work and school pick-up, did swim lesson and taught my evening class and didn't have my shower until just before bed ... admittedly it's bl00dy freezing here at the moment though so no real sweat on. I have been known to jump in a river after a run and treat that as my post-run shower until bedtime.
MR - like your efficient use of time though - so true about the benefits of it as well.
So well done IkkleG for getting out there for something, juggling is a nightmare!!
Nothing really to report here - kids back at school and I am relieved even though it's absolutely straight back into the maelstrom of juggling!! In fact I shouldn't be on here as have shedloads to sort before bed.
Mr CC and I are rubbing along but I am just finding it really odd and a bit surreal because I just feel all detached (probably because I really don't know how I feel about it all so detached is my standard default!!!). That, of course, makes me feel exceptionally guilty because hubby is just behaving like everything is all very normal all is just fine and dandy (I guess he hopes if he behaves like that it therefore will be) and I am going along with it whilst panicking quietly inside that it's not really how I feel/what I want .... la la la la, yawn yawn yawn I am sure for everyone else ... so I'll not waffle on but I do appreciate your thoughts and support.
This weekend I am away on two training workshops ... in Edinburgh - MR and EF, anyone fancy a coffee or something Saturday afternoon or early evening? No worries if no-one around! Am doing a emergency resuscitation workshop on Sat am 9.30-1.30 and then on Sunday I am doing a flexibility workshop - all with the lady I did my training with. Not great timing as it's Js birthday on Sunday - 10 OMG how did that happen? but I had to take the chance as courses come up so rarely and by some luck of it being an English bank holiday on Monday, hubby actually home on Sunday eve. anyway J has forgiven me and we are doing party following weekend.
CM - we like your rants, they make lots of sense (I haven't forgotten your offer - just been soooo manic here my head is on upside-down-back-to-front and that's just with kids/work!!! OMG to your work, but actually sounds very familiar when I used to work for a large global company supplying photocopiers - all sorts of nightmares with IT at inappropriate times - cue lots of stress and headaches. Holiday sounds a good call!!
Pip - lots and lots of hugs. Difficult to comment but plenty of useful support and back-up here (as always) - what a wonderful bunch we are TT's points are very valid as are CMs - I always love the gems we get from your counselling sessions!
TTid - glad to hear you are feeling better and no sign of infection, fingers crossed things stay that way, AND that you get back in your own bed/room soon. Can't believe Fay is a week old already!
Nits and worms - oh yes, we've had both. S especially seemed to get worms the most and I suspect we've had the meds even when I've just suspected it rather than gone to the effort of inspecting to confirm - can't be doing with the whole hysterical screaming/itching scenarios in the middle of the night!!! Nits - only once got it and was a nightmare (a friends child had it when we were all on holiday and the kids were sharing a room, swapping beds and sleeping bags and she never told me until the end of the holiday ... I quote "well, there seemed no point, he always has them, I can't get rid of them" ... I was like, "well we have NEVER had them" ... anyway, took several efforts to get them clear of Ss hair - NIGHTMARE! I do deep coatings of conditioner and a fine tooth comb if a letter comes home and fingers crossed clear so far ...
Back to school here today ... Definitely time. Despite my own emotional turmoils been fantastic summer with only alarming weather last week (our floods were pretty spectacular). But man am I read to send my two on their way today as driving me nuts!!! Straight back into it with library work today and my classes starting back up ... Hey ho!!
