Wow Caro,  i guess  she could win it too?! 

I am sure you tube have a few non-gory (non too close up) births too. 

Don't know why but my mojo has vanished and i feel absolutely shattered whenever i try to jog or bike. Only 6 weeks until my mara so need to be doing more than 2-3 sessions a week?  

Rain forecast tomorrow but hopefully sunday i can get out so planning to go slower and carry more fuel to see if it helps.

Boo to bickering and household woes

Yippee to entering an IM, haircuts and some nice running CC.

Have made a list of Ironman events but dont think Bolton is for me RF as it is quite hilly. Think I am going to go for the one by Cirencester which is pancake flat! It is in August too so i would get a full year to prepare. Hope your night shifts go quick, i miss the early morning dawns when the world is waking up but I dont miss the sicky feeling that usually comes with it. 


TTid - maybe the hairdressing is acting a bit like head reflexology stimulating something!? Hope baby hangs on until you are ready for them! 

Caro - enjoy your break and then you can kick ass with the chemo, ice cap or not! If you dont fancy a cold hat then perhaps eating icecream will give you the same effect?? 

vixo - my 2 bicker too flat out, it is lovely to have them one at a time! 

Felt fine yesterday but have taken  an extra day rest (no chance to get out tonight anyway) and hopefully back to it tomorrow. Both boys had removed their hand socks and were sucking thumbs at bedtime. Pah!

Managed to keep the recovery shake down for a few hours but then spewed..... Not been like this after a training run before! Was obviously harder than I thought.

Poop to lack of family support and long commutes

yippee to fab summers, successful long runs and chippie dinners

tried a long run today but hadnt really eaten much before. Took camelbak of water and some fruit pastilles but it was hot and hilly. Hit a mile long hill at 11 miles and had to walk as too steep, took a good drink but legs cramped up when i tried to run again and my foot dropped too. Very painful spasms so called home and was picked up. Was dreaming of entering an ironman with RF until that point!

DB sorry you had to pull out, sounds like you knew it was necessary. Do you mean you couldnt eat when riding? or just couldnt eat enough full stop to fuel the rest of the race? 

Hope everyone else is busy writing race reports. Only one decent bike (30m) and a 2k swim this week although i did ride 6 miles with the kids and had to haul youngest up from a ditch of nettles so that got my heart racing!

Sorry skim reading only

yippee to speedy tris and winning age cats, holidays, zonking tbags and mr hoggles new job

boo to impending tiredness caro, thumb sucking, house woes, changing days JT and worries about labourtime babysitting.

Have been away for a few days but our open air theatre treat was a washout as it tipped down. Boys were really pleased having given up the thumbs but i guess home brings familiarity as tom had taken his sockglove off to suck just now. He was sobbing when hubby woke him to tell him as he has been promised a raft of treats as rewards.

Thanks ladies, glad to see you appreciate how unusual it is for me to do any long runs!! Training for a sept mara so need to get my arse in gear! 

TT - Tom is 7 and his upper jaw is very narrowed with a huge overbite now. I am officially designing a device now to 1) solve the problem and 2) make me rich. I use a mitten with the hand part cut off so just the thumb and a wristband really, he does pull it off when asleep but at least he is settling without the thumb when we remember. 

Boo to car troubles and cold weather (only for you Hoggle), bad back (take it easy Pip), completing family / wanting the option of another (TT) and allergy tests

Yippee to getting appt Caro and your fab cycling, healthy scan Hoggle, finishing nursery and schools for the summer and of course more glorious weather!

I am here!! Managed a 13 mile run earlier but it was very hilly, very sticky and not particularly fast but at least it was time on legs which i need. Jumped in the river after to cool the legs but they still feel sore.

Good luck for the scan Hoggle. 

IG if they do a garmin then fab but otherwise i would stock up on basics like socks, swimming stuff or footballs. 

Tom just been in crying because his nose is sore from rubbing it while he sucks his thumb.... Another reason for him to stop then! Grrrrr.

Good luck for tomorrow folks, no giggling until the finish is in sight! 

UTC - a win is a win, not your fault bf had a mechanical! 

glad to see the weather wasnt pants everywhere. We had all sorts from heat wave to torrential rain. 

Wanted to escape today but was grounded by the kids....
