Podds: He is there now, and although he probably doesnt like it and misses home/you, he has also settled down a bit, and is in the best place for his recovery.

If it were me, I would tough out another couple days just to be sure recovery starts well, and is monitored. My biggest problem would be that I want him home, but for my own reasons, not nesessarily the best ones for him. I had that decision to make with one of my cats after a leg amputation years back, it hurt me more to leave him there those extra days, but they were worth it for him. When I collected him, even with three legs he came bouncing over and sat on me and wouldnt get up for ages, we had to almost force him go in the basket to bring home Made me cry lots ....

I like fruit like melon or my fave satsumas  really easy to eat, feel good and are nice too, or small bottles of rice pudding also go down really well and taste great, both are magical after many hours on the go.

Add to that I take ginsters pasties, home made rice cakes, home made dark chocolate gel  but not always all together, depends if I need to be self sufficient on a day out.

I tend to think half the battle is finding stuff that you enjoy eating, and eat cos you want to, not because you need to.

Oh, baby bell cheeses too

Good report Melds, I did laugh at this, (not that I have ever done it myself ..... Honest ... 

"Tipped a cup of water over my head at one aid station only to find it was High 5 and spent the next few hours trying to dilute it with water and fending off wasps."

Whats that bike course like elevation wise? Its hard to tell from reports as pretty much everyone will be better on the bike than me at the moment, and make hills sound easy. I am trying to work on them tho

Snaily, there's nothing sad about that, its a realism that may help put what makes you happy into real life perspective, and could possibly point you in a direction where future life could be happy.

After I had my breakdown I had to do the same thing, and focus only on the happy parts, it wasnt that long before my world started to come back together and feel like it had a meaning. However, by then it had changed a lot from what it was before. It took some time before I realised how much better it had become, I now looked at the world for what I wanted, not trying to do everything for other people. (a lot of whom hadnt lifted a finger to help me when I most needed it )

My marraige breakup several years before had had a similar effect, only I wasnt depressed about it, just glad to be out ...

I also got to like and enjoy my own company, I guess that seeded my love for distance running years later where I can spend hours on my own and be happy.

Sorry, going on a bit here (as usual )

Lisa: It doesnt matter how slow/fast you go, as long as it gets done what YOU want it to  Keeping at it is more important, as this will help you no end! You'll improve anyway over time. Bugger anyone who thinks that your paces are crap, you are not them 

Kettle workout, ooohh can I do that with a water boiler thing? We dont actually have a kettle at work ... lemme see 

((((Snaily)))) When do you feel happy and feel you are being yourself? Really tough times for you, and as has already been said, many of us went through in our dark pasts.

*cough* race report *cough* 

Yums: did you see rise of the planet of the apes before you saw Dawn? We saw it over the weekend and want to see the new one now. Despite so called critics saying its all rubbish, I actually enjoyed it .... and your right, teens dont change much 

MC: That water sounded awful! sounds like a jab of some sorts should be required kit!

Enforced early taper here as a gum infection flared up last week and the tabs are knocking me for 6  Oh well.

Has anyone got a runkeeper route of SVP I could look at? I plan to use View Ranger on the day (assuming the maps download en route?) but want to take a close look at the route through RK as I am more familiar with it.
