Hi Duda, that might have been me at the velathon, thought I would fly the flag up those mountains to get some extra support! Wasnt enough to get me up Caerphilly mountain without a wee stop though.

Ah feck, youngest being bullied so all sorts of issues and had the velathon today so i have spent the evening stroking him to sleep while my legs are twitching and back is in bits...... 

Wish i could see into my kids minds!

Love your advice dustboy! I would defo wee in my wettie regardless of if the water is cold or not just to ensure you dont need to wee later on. 

Make sure you pull the wettie right up and work it up under your arms and around your neck so you have full range of movement. Practice getting it off quickly wet too after a practice swim - you may be able to trim the leg length If it is impossible. 

Lastly dont believe a word anyone says at the start. Most whippets will claim to be 'taking it easy' or recovering from the plague so they get an excuse in early. 

Good luck

Well i am running and biking and swimming but.... boy am i pooped. Not good tonight that after an hour tempo run I jumped straight into the pool and got cramp in my calf again. Didnt want to risk it completely locking up like last time so had to cut session short. 

time squeezed and boys need me at home more so doubt i will see any pb's again.

No we havent done parkrun yet, sounds like a good plan. There is one about an hour away or perhaps try something we have to do together like orienteering? 

Whiplash is agony so had to scrap swimming....

I have to give blood again instead of making excuses! Well done Nessie for giving when it leaves you  tired out.

It seems like loads of running this week! mondays I help at a womens walk to run group, Tues is club, weds juniors, thurs club I ran with my boys, friday a sneaky run with friends, saturday was a rest day, Sunday I raced a 10k and tonight was back to walk to run group...... Add bike rides and a swim and i am pooped! 

Went go karting today with my niece and got a massive hit from behind - i am sure i will have whiplash in the morning. 

Felt sorry for my wee man yesterday as he ran a fun run but finished 4th overall so no prize. I told him it was still good as some were high school age (he is 9) but he still sobbed with disappointment saying he should have run better!!!! He is not enjoying competitions anymore so maybe we should stop but I want him to learn to enjoy the event whatever the result. HOW?

Right ladies!! Our lovely thread was wayyyyy down so i am giving it a boost in the hope we can inspire some new mums to join the nutty, slightly frantic chaos of running with families! 

The regulars became so friendly we skipped off to chat in private as there was too much detail for a public forum but I am sure we can tempt them back and offer plenty of support to newbies 

Recurring calf pain

Posted: 31/01/2016 at 22:17

Could look at trainers, nutrition and hydration perhaps if you are happy with sports therapist view about it not being muscular. 

calf guards or simple compression socks may help too? 

Good luck

Nope, even on a day off work with no kids I couldnt muster an ounce of enthusiasm. Have had coffee with my sister, eaten a full roast dinner and a custard slice but not even changed into my running stuff and have 30 mins before school pick up.... oops. 

Tomorrow..... I promise i will try.... Promise.
