AF - Good luck for the Brighton 1/2 and well done on your long run.

MC - Looks like you had a great time!

Hi Franny and Ecky!

We are snowed in.  No school today and probably the most snow we have ever had.  Looks like about a metre from the window.  Daughter still has swimming training later though.....don't fancy the journey much, definitely not driving!

BFN xx

I'm still here but no running to report as hubby has been in India all week. He's due back late tomorrow evening.  So I've been leaving the house at 7.30am and getting home with kids from their swimming etc at 8pm. Then having to warm up something and get stuff ready for the next day, plus normal marking blah, blah, blah.

Today middle son has a swimming competition and other two have music lessons, training and science club but I've managed to find an hour now for a bit of a facebook etc chillout!  My body is going to pot!!! and what's more, all my friends seem to be on a health and fitness drive! Oh well, I live in hope of getting back into some sort of running routine....

Well done to all you dedicated runners!! xxxxx

Hi all!

Got back late Monday night but had a power cut yesterday so couldn't get on the computer.Apparently the weather has been really bad while we have been away (very windy and rainy) and the kids and mother and sister-in-law didn't have any power most evenings!! Miserable for them but the kids thought it was a bit of an adventure, I think!  As for hubby and I - well we had a lovely time. Some rain and some sun but just so nice to have some peace and quiet!!

Since we've got back I did a 3 miler yesterday and today Bit out of condition tbh and put some weight on.....

Well done to you all for getting out in the icy conditions. MC - runs under the full moon sound nice! Ecky - get well soon!

Good luck with your weekly plan Ecky and all your homework! It's funny how everything is relative, isn't it? At the moment 15 miles a week sounds a lot but I'm sure in the past while marathon training it felt like very little!  

A 5 miler yesterday morning for me and now trying to pack around three visits to 2 different swimming pools for kids' training....

(Bum's back to normal!)

Franny - Well done on your 11 miles this morning. Just hubby and me going to Spain!

MC - well done on fitting it all in!

Ecky - Devon sounds great.

AF - Sorry to hear about your wallet....

I have terrible bum ache from picking up the branches yesterday so didn't fancy a run this morning. There must be muscles there I didn't know I had!!   Hopefully it will be easier tomorrow!

Hi Ecky! Good to hear from you. Well done on getting your mojo back.

MC - Hope you feel OK now. We are going to Granada and Cordoba to see La Alhambra and the mosque in Cordoba mainly... oh and to drink some cafe con leche, also just to have some alone time.

Well I managed a short run with my big boy and then we went to get him a tablet with his birthday money and other savings. This afternoon we had to collect all the branches from where the nectarine trees had been pruned.  It's back breaking work. Now home and drinking a creamy coffee

Hi all!

Yippee! My 2 week holiday has started! Hoping to get some running in.  First short run planned for tomorrow with one or two sons. And should be able to run while they are swimming during the two weeks.

Hubby and I are going to Spain for 4 days on Thursday. m-i-l and s-i-l are looking after the kids.  It's our first time away alone (apart from the Istanbul 15K races) since the kids were born. Sort of excited but already had one bad dream about the kids being alone.

Kids will be really busy though. Daughter has 5 days double training each week, and a hard single session each Saturday plus three gym sessions each week.  Hardly a holiday but she is looking forward to it???? Boys have training too but a lot less.... and of course they have lots of homework eg Mikail (the 7 year old) has two books to read, 12 pages of English, a power point to prepare, a book report, comprehension questions and 4 pages of maths problems??? Some private schools are actually working for an extra week - how crazy is that? Makes me a little bit angry actually and I can see it becoming like China...

MC - massive congrats to your son for his distinction! It was worth the wait! Elif and I were really pleased too although she just got a pass. She didn't do enough practice and it was touch and go whether she would pass at all as one piece was really ropey and slow!

Franny - track sessions sound great. Well done!

AF - glad to hear your leg's better.

Off to bed. Nighty night!

Hi all!

MC - Hope you aren't aching too much and that you get out for your 11 miles.

Franny - Gosh that sounds a tough session on Thursday! Must be enjoyable though!

AF - well done on your training. Good luck for your 11 miles too.

Daughter's piano exam went OK (she said). Hubby took her as it was during school time and I couldn't change my lessons. She may not pass this time as she really hasn't done enough practice. It's just so hard fitting everything in with 2 and a half hours swimming every evening and on Saturdays (plus travel time). She wants to keep going though so she must be enjoying it...

MC - gosh that's a long wait for a result, isn't it?  We have waited up to 6 weeks here before but then we are abroad.

I'm planning a run with big boy tomorrow morning.  Little one says he wants a lie in. I need to run as I'm feeling lethargic and had trouble fitting in my trousers today.

Spent day at school today with portfolios again. They are finished now thank goodness.  Little boy had his one too. It was sweet and he has improved so much since we took him to my school. School is hard work nowadays though.  Can't believe he is only seven and is doing long multiplication already. How much homework do your kids get MC and AF?

Hi all!

No running to report as very busy with portfolios after school and at the weekend. Excuses, excuses!  Managed a long walk while kids were in the cinema on Sunday. (I wanted to run but it was too icy. ) Weather has been crazy and unpredictable.  We had a snowstorm on Monday and real trouble getting home from school, only for there to be no sign of it on Tuesday morning. Really looking forward to school holiday now but still one week to go.

Daughter has her grade 6 piano on Friday (I teach her)....hasn't done enough practice (too busy poor thing) but giving it a go anyway, fingers crossed she passes.

Younger son's first tooth came out today - he's very pleased as he's the last one in his class!

That's all my news....

Well done on all your training, indoor and out, as always you put me to shame!

Oh no MC! Get well soon!

Yep, really looking forward to the break although we have a severe weather warning this week so we may get an early slow holiday.
