MC - Glad you are enjoying your holiday and the knees are holding up.
Franny - hope park run was fun and you managed a speedy time.
DJ - Glad to hear your cat is feeling a bit better. Hope you got out for a run yesterday or today.
Hi everybody else!
Well, I got up extra early so I could get a long run in before it got too hot and I managed 13.5 miles. The longest run for me in a very long while. Then I took the kids to an open air pool for some fun in the sun. Five hours later we came home to a huge bunch of flowers from hubby as it's our 17th anniversary today (and to make up for no birthday present!). He's also taking me to the cinema tonight if we can find a good film, so I suppose he is forgiven. Just hope I can stay awake after my busy day.
Hope you are all having a nice weekend. It's bloomin hot here......
For some reason we have no internet at home so this is just a quickie from work.
Legs - Welcome! Nice to have a new face/pair of legs on the thread. Are you a guy or a gal?
DJ - Hope your cat feels better soon and you have the opportunity for a run today. Thanks for the tune!
MC - It's nice when the kids are kind to each other. Really want to see the holiday photos but my school blocks facebook so I'll have to wait until the internet is working at home.
Chili - Very well done on your 100th park run and Smidge's first 5Km. Great achievement for a little 'un!
Hi Franny, AF, Ecky and all!
Well I managed a 2 hour hilly but slow run before school yesterday. Longest run for a long time but I didn't take my garmin so I don't know how far it was. Legs were aching all day afterwards...... Back at school now for seminars, complete waste of time but it does improve my Turkish. Going to the fitness room this evening.
Get well soon to all those that are under the weather (pets included). Parents are here so I've been absent for a while.
DJ - well done on your BTEC success! You must have worked very hard. Well done on your longest run of the year too. I remember and love today's song and will look up Paul Weller's cover.
AF - so sorry to hear about your friend.
I've done a couple of runs this week ( a lovely 6 miler on Tuesday and a wet hilly 6 miler on Sunday)and went swimming yesterday. Daughter is in Istanbul this week for the summer nationals and came third yesterday in the 100m backstroke! So 3rd in Turkey! She is thrilled. First and second were a year older than her too as they are grouped in 2 year age bands.
Anyway, parents go home on Saturday and I'm back to school on Monday ( a whole month before students return which is crazy) The holiday has gone soooo fast. It would have been nice to get away somewhere but what with Ramazan and daughter's double training we couldn't manage it.
Is it still hot there? Parents have been suffering a bit here with the heat....
DJ - good luck with your photography business.I know you'll be successful as your pictures are gorgeous. Well done with your running too. I hope your wife's condition improves soon. Hopefully when the weather cools? It must be so worrying for you both.
AF - well done on all your miles in the heat. How hot is it there?
MC - lovely to get a new car. Enjoy it! Good luck for your swim on Sunday and well done on your training.
Franny - good to hear you had a lovely time away.
Hi to anybody lurking!
3 more days of fasting left..... Swimming tonight after the evening meal. Fitness room yesterday but felt very dehydrated and just managed a walk on the treadmill, some bike and some sit ups!! Hope I haven't lost too much fitness during the past month. (Have lost about about 6 pounds though, which is a bonus although I'll put it straight back on no doubt.) Very hot here too.
