Manatees!!! Ttid -you might have realised by now that i love them! So exciting that you saw one. Great news on your house progress.
Caro - really sorry you feel so cr*p. I can imagine the novelty has well and truely worn off. Can you think about it as a really tough race and tell yourself that it will be over at some point, just keep going. A tough race is still one you chose to do though, this isnt. Sending big virtual hugs to you.
TT - I can imagine you feel gutted. Personally I wanted a 'no' vote but if you wanted 'yes' and felt passionately about it, as you did, it must be pants. Pour yourself a big drink.
JG - hope you are ok. It must be stressful and feel v unfair
CC -aqua jogging. The ultimate exercise in making you mentally tough as it feels like watching paint dry. I did some when i lived in Oz and I was injured. 2 mins feels like 2 hours though!
Not much to report from me. Just bogged down in mortgage quotes, solicitors stuff, trying to find my payslips, blah, blah, blah. 2 weeks til Bournemouth half. I have no idea how hilly it is but I did the last half (2 weeks ago) in 2h01.40 so hoping i can find some extra speed and dip under 2 hours.
Minks, sounds like a difficult one. I would make sure that you have documented scorings and reasons for whoever you chose, just in case the one who doesn't get it turns nasty. Sounds like they could both do the job. I would hire the one who has been around for 20 years though as it sounds like she wont be going anywhere. I guess the justification for this one would be easy as they have 20 years of experience within the organisation.
JG - poor you Glad it's looking good about your mum though.
I just spoke to the people that we are buying the house from and when I asked them originally, they were buying somewhere and the owners were going to rent, so effectively the end of the chain. They then pulled out of that place and found somewhere else. These people now have to find somewhere to buy. The chain could go on and on. At the moment its up to 4 places. Sounds dodgy to me.
50k bike ride this morning. Feeling quite tired now...
I am reading this thread as I am hoping to do comrades in 2016 for my 40th. Its been an ambition for YEARS!
I wondered if anyone knew if the jw ultra could count for qualification? I came across the race on Saturday whilst on a girls weekend in Stratford and quite fancy it. Just pondering my qualification. Also anyone know the approx difference between starting in the sub 4 pen and the sub 4.20 pen? I believe there is a pen for club runners between them.
