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.

Hope everyine has survived the chaos.... Kids opened their stocking at 2:30 and were dragging their pillow cases into our room to open. Thankfully a stern NO WAY got them back into bed until 7am but I have yet to recover and am totally wiped out. 

My mojo really did go into hibernation and I have done NOTHING for 2 weeks and nothing of any quality for months. Have a long list of events already entered for 2016 including ironman wales so I need to get my head into gear. Grrrrr. 

Going to drag my butt to club today and hope others enthusiasm will inspire me - please feel free send me some of your own words of wisdom or a much needed kick in the backside.

Of course Nessie and perhaps another day category for mums of vomming kids... 

I Loathe christmas shopping and have no idea what to get anyone. Perhaps your husband would like some new running gear in your size?

Come on ladies, we are dropping off front page!! 

Spent my cross country today thinking about the rankings / age categories. I think instead of just age we need a senior, vet, mum, mum of multiples, mum with csection, mum of teenagers and menopausal..... Of course I could compete in more than one cat which would give me a better chance of winning something! 

Not ready for xmas and not done shopping so thought I would make the most of an hour internet time but the only stuff I fancied on the decathlon site was for me Happy days! 

Prolapse after baby :-(

Posted: 01/11/2015 at 18:31

You are still full of hormones and if breast feeding even more so. Your body is working hard to keep up with demands of a newborn and you need to cut yourself some slack. A prolapse is very common and if it doesnt improve on its own enough to run with then there are plenty of options which can help. I had a csection which put me out of running for months and a ventouse with my last which like you did some rather attractive stretching which took as long as the csection to fix. 

I would echo all the advice already given, take your time now to ensure a healthy future for your whole family. I feel your worry so if you are down remind yourself this is  just a blip and you are already getting better.

Not much mojo and calfs stiff and sore. 

Struggling to keep everything on an even keel with work and kids and not sure I actually want to anymore. Spent the journey to work in tears as work phone had gone flat, had to squeeze extra meetings in to my day and then parents evening and junior athletics clashing. On my knees by the end of today and as we walked in the door youngest fell and split his head open on the radiator..... Arrrgh

keep up the good work folks, I am on the verge of admitting defeat!!!

Well Done tangy! This thread saved my sanity many a time so I like to think keeping it open for other frazzled Mums is a good thing.

I won the crappy Mum award today for forgetting to take swim kit to school but will regain it with knobs on when the boys find out we are off on holiday soon! 

ps daddy was able to deliver kit so archie did get to swim and he forgave me. 

Still looking for mojo if anyone has any going spare.....

IM Wales 2016 --- Who's in?

Posted: 26/09/2015 at 00:36

Effing Madness - not sure i like your devious ways. I would NEVER do something as underhand. I have however just won a new swim hat and swimsuit...... 

Supposed to be braving the welsh water at Aber sprint on Sunday but for the 1st time in my life I really CBA'd. Put on half a stone since cotswold 226 so cant do my race wettie up and dont fancy rolling out of the sea last in my fatsuit. 

I am a bit (a lot) concerned about the fact that I took the very 1st recommendation I read about staying at kiln park and booked. NOW i see people saying it is a long walk from the finish and I want to cry a little.
