I'll bear that in mind I think i can stomach pretty muh anything before a long slow run, it's short fast ones that play havoc with my stomah it seems!

Fortunately there aren't too many of those...

NO running at all this past week (!) I just have barely been in the house for five minutes what with conferences, work travel and theatre nonsense.

starting to regret entering the bloody thing! Oh dear!

This time round was meant to be all about seeing just what i could do if i pushed myself... which clearly i'm incapable of...

Will run after work tomorrow, however much i don't feel like it, and Wednesday morning before we go away. I suppose i could even take running kit with me, didn't think of that!! (idiot!)

Gah, I posted on the bus and it's vanished!

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

I went to all 3 of my graduations too - by the last one my mum was a bit bored and trying to get out of it

We've been reviewed They said 'The ten musicians, who perform below the stage, do a marvellous and often subtle job of rendering crisp musical backings and creating atmosphere.'

That'll do nicely (to be honest anything that wasn't 'the flute player shouldn't have bothered turning up' would have done )

Evenin all, will read properly tomorrow, just come back from first night at the theatre Quite pissed Utterly terrified nervous wreck but came through it with only minor blips (or squeaks) and nobody noticed (except the band...) Quite sad I'm not doing the rest of the week now! Back on Saturday for matinee and final night  though

strangely enough i've stuffed my face with scotch pancakes and french fancies today and wasn't gping to run at all but my sister persuaded me to and i did 4 miles with no tummy trouble at all!

i'll be very pleased if my ideal running nutrition is cake (didn't go very fast today mind you...)

good plan to shoehorn in a mile or two here and there. May need advice about how to fit in enough long runs in the weeks i've got left... but busy watching the football so i'll worry about that later

Do you ever rest Kaz?!

Parkrun yesterday was a fiasco! Well, not *the* parkrun, which was fun and doing the route in the opposite direction made for a nice change

But I was tired, have walked MILES this week, and yet again didn't drag myself out of bed in time for breakfast so stuffed bread and peanut butter into my gob about 15 minutes before it started...

Wasn't as bad as last time, but about 1.5 miles in got rotten stomach pains again and had to walk for a bit. Eased off and I carried on running, but had to walk again later, and finished in quite a pathetic (for me, these days!) 33.45

So - clearly my nutrition strategy needs some work Cereal bars seem to be best, especially for last minute stuffing in! Bread it seems is NOT good that close to the start. Hmm...

Not sure where I'll fit stuff in this coming week - I'm working every day (shocking, I know ) and bizarrely found myself playing in a band for a show at the theatre in the evening But I'll try to get out a couple of times at least!

Go back to slee Meldy!

Poor old DG, does indeed sound like he's falling apart!

Fingers crossed for Amelia's exam noggs

Vomitorium is (apparently!) those kind of corridor things that performers come out of onto a stage (especially one like the crucible where it's in the middle of a semi circle, rather than raised in front of audience). From Roman amphitheatres I believe where people used to go out to be sick (presumably before they were being killed by lions, or after giant feasts or something - reaching the end of my knowledge here ). Fortunately this one wasn't full of sick

I know I was being a bit modest earlier but I still do feel a little bit like a fraud - this is what happens when you're surrounded by other people who do things better than you - I still feel like a beginner runner because I know loads of people who've done many marathons and ironman things, I feel like a PhD is hardly anything at all because I know loads of people who've done one, and grade 8 doesn't feel like much of an achievement to me because I know several people who did it when they were 14!

Tis all relative though

Probably won't run away to join the theatre - I get a bit caught up in things sometimes, all 'this thing that I'm doing RIGHT NOW, this is the BEST THING EVER and I want to do it and nothing else ALL THE TIME'

night podds


glad mr p is well pippi must be fascinating to watch your own insides on the tv!


had a FAB evening at the theatre there's only 10 of us in the band, only one of each instrument so feels quite exposed! We're playing UNDER the stage so can't see audience or play which is a shame but still very exciting Had a tour round and got to go up the vomitarium (or vomitorium, or whatever) onto the stage which was very exciting

Busy trying to work out how i can leave work and do this all the time i'm so fickle!

(am also exhausted and must go to sleep!)
