Hi everyone How are things? Mr TST is in the analysts meeting this morning, which he was really nervous about and they were late starting which won't have helped. This is the hard bit I think, once the questionnaire is all approved we just need to wait for the board decision. Hopefully he'll find out today when their next meeting is and when we'll get a final decision.
Can't help you with the withdrawal questions Sinbad as I didn't get them. Well, not from drink anyway! But with drugs, and currently caffeine/sugar, I've found the only way for me to deal with them is ride it out really. Which probably isn't much help, but you have to let your body rid itself of the toxins you've polluted it with and it's not going to like not having it's usual dose of booze. Well done on the run though Sinbad.
I managed mine yesterday - run 3, walk 3 x 4 - and felt like I wanted to throw up and lie down at the same time after the last run bit! Think I may need to slow down a little as I may be going too fast whilst building the run time. It probably doesn't help that I've lost so much fitness since the sprain in February and that I'm the fattest I've ever been. Still, I did it, so onwards and upwards!
I assume she knows you run and enjoy it so would she really object if you trotted off for an hour a couple of times a week? It's not like you are asking to run every day for several hours
I always take my trainers when we go away, and get up a bit early a couple of days during the week and go off for a little trot. It can be a great way to find something unexpected to visit later in the local area, and as I live somewhere pretty flat it's usually a great way to get some hills in! Just plot routes before you go or get good advice from the staff at the hotel about where to go, getting lost can be an intersting experience!!
Welcome back Sinbad. We've had to stick at it, Mr TST isn't getting paid as much as he should and that's not right. He does a very hard job and he should get the recognition that he deserves. We've been fighting 4.5 years for this, no way we are quitting!
What actual problems are you having with the bully Sinbad? It's a bit difficult to offer advice without an example of what he's doing. Glad you have made some other friends there though, just make sure the alcoholic doesn't lead you astray when you are having a sober day. That's a real pain about the tablet. Who did you order it from, normally they arrange for courrier collection or send you a pre-paid sticker thingy if they've made a mistake.
I still ache from Mondays run/walk and all the proper posture practicing, so tonights session will be interesting! I had some problems with the tendon I tore on Monday and yesterday morning, but I had a chat with the sports therapist and she said it will be fine. I do have to take it easy and it will niggle a bit, but so long as I don't go nuts it will settle down eventually although it could take up to a year Tonights session is run 2, walk 4 x 5. So the run is twice as long, but the recovery is four times as long. Am going to use my watch tonight to make sure I don't hare off at a 7:12mm pace!
Been going on 4.5 years Cinders!! This is definitely the final stage though and I'll be glad to see the back of it, the stress has been horrendous hee hee not sure went well is quite how I'd describe it, but I did it and didn't die, even though I wanted to throw up and the end and felt like I was going to die I have a very long way to go I think!
So how was your swim? How did you get on with the watch?
