Been absent for a very long while..... just popped in.
Franny - have a great works do.
MC - have a lovely spa.
AF - get well wishes to you and your wife.
Hi DJ and Loula if you pop in at all.
I've been having a long rest after my lone marathon. (I suppose that was how the first ever marathon was run!) Been going to the fitness room but planning when I can run outside is always a bit like planning a military campaign.
Busy at work and busy with the kids like everybody else! Just finished a week of school presentations which are always very tiring. 5 weeks to go until the end of our term. (20 weeks this time) Working Christmas Day and kids are at school but having a little celebration on the following Sunday. (English Cultural Day!!!)
Glad you have decided to keep the thread going. Will try to pop in more often but having no runs to report always makes my posts a bit negative?!
Still have computer trouble which is the result of the computer technician at work giving it a good clean! The o seems to be working today at least.
Well, my news is that I haven't gone to Istanbul for the marathon tomorrow. My foot was better, although not a 100%, and I managed 18 miles 2 weeks ago and 10 miles last Sunday and was all set. Daughter got a throat infection last week which I got on Tuesday. I got drugged up and was hoping for a miracle but I'm still coughing and my glands are up. No possible way I could run a marathon. I may attempt my own private marathon when I'm better. My mum says she'll get me a medal if I do! Feeling a bit down, as I've been hoping to do a marathon for nearly 5 years now and I've seen you all do your first and successive maras....If I lived in England I would sign up for another one in a couple of weeks but no such luck here.
Franny - well done on your training! Sounds very hard core!
AF - Oh no!! Hope you feel better soon. Don't push yourself. I hope it's nothing serious.
Hi Silver Trucker!
Hubby has cooked dinner, it's on the table! Gotta go! What a lovely man!!!
