Aw snaily ((((()))))) you'll probably feel a bit shit for a while and no wonder you're exhausted lass. It'll pass, it really will, and you will emerge stronger and won't regret it in the long term at all. I know it's hard watching him hurting - I left ex Mr Daffs and it was devastating watching him trying to find somewhere, but he did eventually and we became friends in the end. Keep popping in here and venting as much as you need xx

((((panic)))) sounds like a rough couple of years for you. Hope things are easing off a bit now xxx

((((DL and FC3)))) sounds like a difficult placement... but well done on the football-watching!

((((Waister pals))))

Long and difficult day here at our work away day, pootling up and down the canal in the sunshine Tis a hard life sometimes

Hi Barbara Nice to see you again

No idea how many miles the old shoes have done, but they got me through the last marathon (2 years ago) so probably a few hundred at least...

Jury's still out on which ones I'll wear!

Race number arrived this week... Did my slowest parkrun since January 2013 Also did a hula hooping class and while I LOVED it, I won't be doing it this week as 2 days is not long enough to recover before the race

Haven't run this week, and may well not do. Right ankle feels a bit niggly, left hip also a bit niggly, and I don't want anything to jeopardise my chances - I won't be doing another one after this!!

6 days left..

That does indeed sound like an eventful week Pippi! We saw red kits when we were in Church Stretton a few weeks back, just circling over the hills I've seen them at a feeding station too (probably the same one!) - magnificent birds.

Slow gentle parkrun for me (about 36 mins, not exactly breaking any records today!!)

Sister is on the warpath - someone showed the Thriller video to my eldest nephew's class at school. He's 8 and has Aspergers, and was traumatised by the Operation Christmas Child video, so goodness knows who thought this was a good idea! I'm fairly sure they'll realise the error of their ways once she's finished with them!

i've been hula hooping much more fun than running - reckon if i do that for 6 hours next weekend instead of the marathon they'll give me a medal anyway??

some woman has nicked my newspaper slot by the look of it. Some nonsense about it being her 100th marathon. I would have thought that would be cause for a lie down and a slap with a wet fish, not a celebration!!

I certainly don't start work without shoes, I just can't do a suitably scary Dr Daffs act on the phone in me woolly slippers

Gosh coco, muscle tone in the tummy region?? I wonder what that looks like... 

Welcome back Claire! and welcome Trigger, always room for a few more in the waister lounge  

I just won a prize at our Writing Week prize giving ceremony  For 'most sticky notes produced in a group task'  My prize was one of these, which I'm overwhelmingly chuffed with  

Certificate now on the wall, of course. I'm easy to please (although given that we ALL won a prize for something, and have ALL put our certificates on the wall, I'm not the only one!)

Indeed not, keep forgetting you're doing it too!  I reckon you'll be at least 1.5 hours ahead of me  

Fame doesn't seem to have altered my need to go to work, sadly...

The 20 miler was indeed rather too much of an adventure... but I'm glad I did it, and having done an 18 AND a 20 I feel much more confident of getting to the end.

Did 9 miles at the weekend, and another 4 this morning. Currently feel about 105 years old

Shoes were alright, but they were just £1 insoles from the chemist and I hadn't cut them small enough so I ended up a bit squashed Still not sure what to do, going to go out in old shoes later this week and see if they're really that bad.

I don't feel broken, just precariously-put-together... Feel like my upper body has sunk into my hips.

Booked a hula hooping class for this Thursday as I'm quite ready to do some exercise that doesn't involve running!!

11 days to go...

Er, Podds, I'd love to know what kind of school building your 'blue building' is!!

Plodded 4 miles this morning

And in other news, I appear to be the subject of a press release for the marathon... Can't find it online at the mo - prize to the first waister to spot me in a national newspaper (for this, not for anything else... )
