Just a Little Bit Further - 2014

Posted: Yesterday at 11:54

DJ - good luck with your photography business.I know you'll be successful as your pictures are gorgeous. Well done with your running too. I hope your wife's condition improves soon. Hopefully when the weather cools? It must be so worrying for you both.

AF - well done on all your miles in the heat. How hot is it there?

MC - lovely to get a new car. Enjoy it! Good luck for your swim on Sunday and well done on your training.

Franny - good to hear you had a lovely time away.

Hi to anybody lurking!

 3 more days of fasting left..... Swimming tonight after the evening meal. Fitness room yesterday but felt very dehydrated and just managed a walk on the treadmill, some bike and some sit ups!! Hope I haven't lost too much fitness during the past month. (Have lost about about 6 pounds though, which is a bonus although I'll put it straight back on no doubt.) Very hot here too.

Oh well, bfn folks. xx

Hi all! Thanks for the birthday wishes guys. I had a very normal day but a lovely cake from sister in law and books sent from mum and dad. Hubby seemed to have forgotten...... which is fairly normal. May buy myself a present to make up for it!

Hope you are having a nice trip Franny!

Been a bit tired but trying to keep up with swimming and some visits to the fitness room. Looking forward to the end of Ramazan now.....and mum and dad are coming!!!

Hope you are all OK. xxx

Hi all!

Franny - Glad to hear you had a lovely holiday. Take it easy at work.

AF - Looking forward to hear about your race.....

MC - How many weeks left at school now? How's the exam marking going? Hope you have time for your training!

Well, hubby was picking nectarines again yesterday. I'm gonna help him next Sunday which will be the final picking when we pick all the ones remaining.  (I don't think he trusts me to pick just the ripe ones!!!) We have made a nice bit of pocket money this year.

Elif came back from Italy yesterday. She had a fantastic time.  The competition was just 100m races in all four strokes. She did the 100m freestyle and the 100m backstroke.  No medals, but for the 100m back she got into the final. If she had  swum her best she would have got a silver but it wasn't to be. She got a PB for the 100m free which she was pleased about as it's not her usual event. Anyway, back to training this evening for another competition this weekend.

I'm going to the fitness room later. Not too hot here (about 30C) but gonna wimp out and run in the ac fitness room.

Hope you are all well... where's chili?

MC - Good luck to little boy and I hope he copes with all the stress!

AF - well done on all your mileage. Sounds a great pace to me.

Well went to the fitness room yesterday and I'm swimming tonight. It was very busy on Tuesday (at least 40 swimmers at 10pm!).

Elif went off to Italy early this morning. She comes back late on Sunday, hopefully.

Morning all!

So quiet on here lately!

AF - Good luck for Sunday and well done on all your mileage. Enjoy the nice weather.

Fitness room on Monday and a swim after eating yesterday evening.  Fitness room again today and hopefully 30 minutes on the treadmill. Prefer to run outside but the ac makes it more bearable!

Elif is off to Milan tomorrow for a swimming competition, her first abroad.  She is very excited. Hope she has a good time and doesn't get too stressed which has been a bit of a problem for her recently...

Anyway, hope you are all having fun whatever you are up to!

Well done MC! Sounds sensible to walk if knee was hurting. How was the weather? I've heard it's nice there at the moment.

Lainey - Hi! What are you up to? Still busy with lots of park runs etc?

Nice day here, little bit cloudy so cooler. Hubby and a couple of hired hands have picked lots of nectarines and pears. Hoping for a good price at the market....

Start swimming again next week. Two days 10-11pm which will be strange but nice, hopefully.

Hi all!

Tom - sorry about your knee. Glad to hear it's better quickly.

Franny - hope you have a lovely time and the weather is kind.

AF - well done on your mileage!

MC - Hi!

Well managed 6 hilly miles yesterday morning in the heat.

Ramazan has started now. I'm staying awake after eating this morning as I have to take daughter to meet a 6am bus for a competition in another city - not worth going to bed and risking oversleeping! Hopefully I'll have a nap after boys' swimming training. 17 hours fasting for 30 days.... feeling optimistic.....

BFN! xx

Hi all!

MC - good luck with the marking.Enjoy your half. Sounds like a nice event.

AF - Enjoy the pub run.

Slightly jealous of your running opportunities!

Another 5 hilly miles for me this morning. It's getting hotter here..... 34ish at the moment.

Hope you are all well. xx

Well done on your mileage AF!

6 hilly miles for me this morning. And planning an hours walk this afternoon. (daughter is doing double training four days a week and single training two days so I can train while waiting for her.)

MC - I'm sure the half will feel fine after your marathon. Good luck!

DJ - well done on your four miles. Sounds like you have everything in control. And well done on last term's distinction.  You must have worked really hard. Hope your wife's new therapy is helpful.

As for my holiday running plan.... Psychologically I would find running in the morning really hard; although it is cooler and I would have plenty of energy, I would then have to wait until 8.45pm for any water. I'll try running around 7pm and then I'll know I won't have to wait long to quench my thirst.

Anyway...... bfn xx
