Oh Caro, i feel your pain. indeed you have been dealt the bum deal this year but you are kicking ass and it will be all over by Christmas. Hope you get tummy pains identified and can stop them happening again. 

JG - boo to job worries, agree the not knowing must be stressful - hope the agency pays well to compensate (doubtful)! Love the diet plan.... Think no cakes and no biscuits would work for most of us! 

Come on baby Sonia!

Boo to friend leaving Caro but yay to friend moving closer to you KInsey and your extra free time! 

Yippee to your fab weekends farming Hoggle - yep I am doing the mara in Belgium! 

Had a relexology session yesterday and then slept from 9pm to 7:30... Wow!

crikey Rocco, that was some ride. 

Ali - does not matter who is last, it matters who gets off their butts and tries. Well done! I did a hill race today and was 5th from last overall. Still got the tshirt and cake.

Jeez, the race was tough. You climbed 1500ft in the 1st half then just when you wanted to puke you hit the steep downhill and knackered your knees. Mostly club runners but still surprised to finish 5th from last!! The others must have had their weetabix! 

Kinsey - my watch used to do funny things and could maybe understand if it was twisty or hilly but not if it's been ok on that route before. Maybe you did hit dizzy speeds!!! 

Did our ice bucket challenge and eaten 2 roast dinners to stop me snacking on rubbish.

Back to work tomorrow  But only 2 weeks until Belgium for the marathon  And then another 3 until gran Canaria .

JT - look out for the entries next year as it is bound to grow and they have already said the event village would need to move if the field gets much bigger so they may put a limit on. 

iG - good job you checked! i find although trains and buses are packed with runners heading to a start they are always friendly affairs! No-one moans or grumbles about being squashed as they have bigger things to think about. Good run considering the bleughness. 

decided to do a hill raiser race tomorrow, 7 miles uphill to the top of hay bluff then all down to the finish. Will be a good session even if I come last!

Hi Rpitch- your plan looks good but be prepared to be flexible, i find if i plan too much something inevitably goes pear shaped and you have to adjust! Sometimes i hear about more events I want to squeeze in and end up skint or injured! 

Not good to hear about the niggles Steady and MC.

Interesting about the kids giving swim tips, i wish someone could advise me how to speed up. 

have been getting lots of crampy calfs, was reading another thread about calf strain which advised staying in the saddle to bike so wondering if my increase in bike sessions could be to blame? (Not that i get out of the saddle much). 

saw a pirate at the severn bridge half last Sunday but was past me in a flash!

Back home after an impromptu barge holiday! Went to the severn bridge half last Sunday then drove straight to n wales where the boat was. Fab week with no stress, no thoughts of work and no wifi.... Bliss. Even managed plenty of jogging/ running on the tow path on Tues and Thursday. 

Yippee to the win Lotte, snuggles with Fay, buying choc for colleagues, running after the horrendous massage Tangy, being bridesmaid and having a nice job (anyone else apart from lotte??) 

Boo to sorting everyone elses stuff out at work CM, the Summit, traffic woes, injuries, queues and cost at legoland (defo wont be hurrying there) and head lice!!! 

I have another who gets despondent and wont try if he thinks he may lose. Toms teacher kept him down on the marking thing at school as he 'struggled  to accept disappointment'. 

Severn bridge half was fabulous, could have done with more toilets but i managed with a bush.... Slick organising and huge field so always plenty of people around you (but not too crowded). Ran pretty much all of it with my 60plus club mate who left me for dust over the last mile! She was 2nd in her age cat though. Def not flat which added some omph and of course starting on the actual bridge was awesome. I kissed it as i came back over and finished in 1:54.

Fab swim CC but boo to missing appt.

Broccoli doused in some kind of white sauce would freeze i guess. 

minks - IMTB did fab to get sub 12 hours. 

I guess managing the side effects of chemo may be like us all finding our own ways of dealing with morning sickness. What works for one may not work for another. So pleased that your sis is coming Caro. 

Grr to housework, why oh why cant they invent more self cleaning items. 

Got a call today from hubby who had fallen through a floor at work..... Huge scrape up his leg and numerous on his back, cut on his head glued and steri stripped. Thank god that was all!

Eek to potential house move CC, yippee for arnica but boo that you need it! 

Fab running Lotte, how the heck you manage a pb after a steady run in the morning is beyond me! 

Pip - family grind places pressures which test everyones marriages as women pick up the majority of the kids chores/ organising/ shopping/ school stuff etc etc on top of hormonal changes with a baby and the physical challenges of night waking, lifting buggies, rocking a screaming baby...... Urgh. 

No demands off my hubby - i think we are both too knackered to care! 

Anyone else doing severn bridge half mara on Sunday?

Bah, i thought i had pre-registered for outlaw but didnt get an email for the half so not expecting one for the full either. Think i am going to plump for cotswolds for my first bite at the cherry now anyway.

Good to see some plans for next year, will defo try and come and cheer a bit but no-where is easy to get to from my wilderness of midwales. 

Decent bike and run brick session tonight - 20 miles & 5k in about 1hr40. 

Love the idea if wild camping - might be searching for somewhere myself Sat night as early start for severn bridge half mara on Sunday!

Oh dear i leave you for a few days and come back to worms and nits!! Haha we have had them all, in fact i sometimes treat archie for worms 'in case' because he has his hands down his pants so much! 

Ttid - hope it settles and you can master feed, sleep, change repeat.... 

boo to traffic woes and work issues but yippee to school routine returning for some of you Northern Ma's. Love the idea of a focussed lunchtime run - HIIT is all the rage now so you only need 30 mins!? 

black clouds still lingering, had a lovely weekend with visiting friends but Archie had to sleep in Tom's room and his night bag had a tiny puncture so dripped litres of urine onto various patches of the carpet over 3 days. Carpet now chucked and hoping the chip board floor will dry without a stench. No running as too grumpy! The day was topped off when i tripped in the garage and smashed my arm into a bike as i fell. Now in agony!
