Franny - well done on your 10 miler and your track session. Sounds great!
MC - well done on getting through your first half term. It sounds like you did the right thing in changing schools! Hope you feel better soon and that you enjoy your 2 nights away.
AF - Glad to hear you are getting fast again! Enjoy your first park run!
Well I didn't run on Thursday or today because of logistical reasons. (Little son has a cold so he didn't go swimming so I had to go home with him after school.) May be a good thing though as foot is still a bit crap. Gonna try a short run on Sunday and Tuesday and then hopefully a long one on Wednesday as we have a day off for 'Republic Day'. That's the plan anyway. (It's now 10 days with no run.....)
Busy day tomorrow ferrying kids. Little 'un has started science club at school on a Saturday which he is enjoying. He loves his new school but he has a lot of homework and he usually doesn't get in from school until 7.30pm (he stays for swimming). He is 7 years old!! This is pretty common though for private schools here.
Don't think I'm getting het up. Truth is, I have a grand total of 1 marathon a year I can choose from here in Turkey and if I'm not fit enough to run I'll have to wait another year. I desperately want to do it but my foot is PAINFUL! Going to give it a try on Thursday, but I'm not running at all at the moment!!!!
Just back from a department jolly!! It was fun! Nice people etc but had to leave early as youngest was finishing a swimming training.
If this thread does die hope to be seeing you all on other threads on runners world or facebook! bfn xxxx
MC - Don't think I said well done.... so...Well Done! You did so well to finish with a poorly knee. Hope you feel recovered soon and the chafed bits aren't too sore!!
AF - How did the 10 mile race go?
Franny - well done on your fast park run and your 10 miler.
Well, I'm feeling a bit down. Haven't run since Tuesday as my heel is bloomin sore. Looked it up and sounds like that plantar thingy which I think I've had before. I've taken it easy for a week but still get twinges when walking normally. I missed my long run the Sunday before as we were up the mountain cutting the new growth on the olive trees and of course I missed this Sundays long run. Marathon is in a month....... do I train or wait as long as I can to make sure my heel is better??? Soo glad I managed a 22 miler 3weeks ago but pretty sure I've lost fitness Everything was going so well......
ho hum... had a busy weekend with 2 older kids at swimming competition. 7 golds and a silver for my girl but nothing for my boy. He was fairly happy with 4 PBs though. Hubby was hunting all weekend so I was rushing all over the place as a taxi service....
Hope you folks are all happy. It's getting chilly here now.
MC - glad you are feeling better. Shame you missed your race though!
Franny - hope you are having a fabulous time! Good luck for tomorrow.
AF - Take it easy with your back! Are you still planning to run your ultra? Is it tomorrow?
Chili - good to hear from you. Hope your sleeping improves.
We are on holiday from school for 5 days (started yesterday) for Eid or Bayram as it's called here. Managed 22 miles yesterday morning in just under 4 hours. It is my longest run ever but I felt like I couldn't manage another step.....
Hubby killed 4 rams this morning for neighbours but we plan to catch up with some gardening for the rest of the holiday....Back to school on Wednesday.
