Oh dear meldy! We should swap neighbours -mine seem pretty nocturnal

Tiredy tired now after being woken up every single hour last night... fortunately been off work today, although could get to quacks sadly, and seemingly not tomorrow either. Looks like it's the walk in centre on Saturday, yawn...

On the plus side I've done a big load of tidying and have just painted some plaster bit bored of painting now though and haven't finished the wall yet...

Gosh Pippi, how awful So sad Hugs to all xx

Well done Sluggy, averting a difficult situation there. Good job done!

(((MC))) glad you've finished marking  

Meldy, I wasn't expecting a medical diagnosis on the basis of 'my foot feels a bit funny' But since you ask... outside of left food, kind of middle, doesn't feel like muscle pain, ok when I'm walking on tiptoes but very hurty when I put foot down, and a couple of times today it's 'twanged' or 'pinged' or 'snapped' or whatever you want to call it 

Just twanged again and really rather sore - I'm off tomorrow so will hop (literally) to the docs if they'll have me - have missed evening online appointment release so will get up and see if I can nab one first thing, or maybe try again Friday (or go to the walk in centre, but not sure if I'm in *enough* pain to justify the tedium). Never entirely sure whether I'm just being a wimp or not!

Well done westie! Glad you can get out there for the end too

And welcome Holly too good work, taking it nice and slowly

And jenni running too! All this running is putting me off coming in here

I certainly shan't be running today - have done something untoward to my foot. It was fine on Sunday during the race (my knee was objecting, but not my foot),then on Monday I wore heels and it got a bit sore as I walked round, then really sore as I walked (not in heels yesterday), and then today it's been really quite objectionable. Mostly doesn't hurt when I sit down, just when I walk on it. Most inconvenient. Had to walk practically on tip toes for half an hour to get to work and it's got worse all day. Just trekked across town (on bus/taxi!) To visit someone who wasn't there so that caused a bit more walking too.

On the plus side, I've learned we're on strike tomorrow (again, yawn) so I might start the day with a trip to the docs if such a thing can be arranged, and see how the day progresses from there. If I'm not ordered to put my feet up I might plaster the bathroom!

You're making it sound tempting Meldy but, er, no

Gosh I ache today! 15 miles is a long way when you're not properly trained... and I'm COVERED in insect bites, urgh. Don't need to be up this early but just couldn't stay in bed, far too itchy!

Lovely day yesterday though,and lovely to see XB of course, who I think also had a nice day At 9ish miles we went up a giant hill and passed a woman crying with her family, daughter was saying 'do you want to give up? It's ok to give up!' And she was just sobbing... XB is such a gallant gent and suggested we pick her up (metaphorically of course) and bring her with us (after all, we couldn't possibly have ben going any slower... )

So we said if she wanted to finish she could come with us and we wouldn't leave her, there were only 4 miles left, and she did, which was nice, and we walked and plodded a bit, and tried to catch up XB amd my sister at each stage (sister had to wait at each stage anyway as we were running as a pair and I had the electronic dibber ) Crying woman finished just ahead of me, with er daughter joining her over the finish line, and cried some more

So a jolly good day out Knee feels like a bag of broken lego but I'm sure it'll mend itself. At a work event all day so I'm going to walk into town to get it moving a bit, but then not much dashing around after that hopefully.

Must find some kind of bite cream, aarrgghh!

Fingers crossed dragon!


(((((Waister pals)))))))

you daft lot not doing a mad adventure race, it's that round Sheffield timed stages thing where you have to tag in and out of different sections and get big legitimate walk breaks it's just been raining rather a lot round here and much of yesterday was torrential downpours...

Raft won't be much use anyway as quite a lot of it is uphill!

Best get up i suppose...

Ooh, that sounds cheery Pippi! Love to see if you're allowed to share  

And good luck running Yums! I do hope you don't have to run *all* of the 24 hours 

I've been and collected our numbers for tomorrow's race, and am VERY excited that XB will be joining us Not entirely sure he knows what he's letting himself in for...  

Sister arriving soon. Going to spend the evening making some kind of raft...

(((((Waisters, elderly parents and hangers on))))))

Sorry,thought I'd said where I was going but clearly not - I'm in Bergen (Norway) very exciting. Sadly weather is dire but then i'm (apparently) here to work not laze around so probably a good thing! Had 6 hr train trip through the mountains yesterday, most fun! Although that's a long time on one train when you've forgotten yer knitting...

No decent tea yet, bleurgh. And I could do with an early night and a lie in but it seems no chance of either! Yesterday was out for 16 hours using mamy different forms of transport (plane, train, taxi, taxi, train, super-epic-long-train, bus). Exhausted now and have to leap out of bed anf get on the flybussen! Hard life. Breakfast first

Looks like I've got all the summer here - sun didn't set til gone 11 and now at quarter past 12 I can still see to read inside my room with no lights on...

Not found the gym yet, or the running trails, or a decent cuppa. Doesn't bode well. Bed's comfy though and free wifi nd I can see the planes taking off from my bed (barely hear them though!)

Best go to sleep...
