Kinsey and Camio - you'll definitely be closer to TBird. I'm in Edinburgh (like EF)

If the ultra involved eating crisps and drinking wine I might manage it a whole more readily than running!

It is proper windy - no running here today!

Looking for some training advice - got a 10 mile race in couple of week and not really sure what should run for my LSR this weekend. My LSR diary looks like this:

25th Feb 7.5 mile LSR
7th March 5 mile RACE (v hilly)
8th March 10 mile LSR (prob stupid day after a race, but was only time could squeeze it in)
14th March 31.1 mile LSR (hilly)
21st March 7 mile run LSR
29th March 8 mile RACE + 2.5 miles easy

This weekend I'll be 2 weeks out from the 10 mile race. Should I do a 10 mile LSR - or longer, or shorter????? Conscious that I've 'raced' twice in March. Legs are pretty tired and last week I had a massive ulcer on my tonsil which is a sign of being run down (but had also just finished period which seems to really lower immune system these days).

Thanks EF! Overdid the drinking and dancing at a 50th birthday party last night so will be pleased just to survive Kilomathon tomorrow morning!

Enjoy your trip north CM, enjoy Spain Lottie.

Extension looks awesome Camio. congrats on 1st lady Caro - I'd only manage 1st lady if somehow all the other women were 'accidentally' locked in the loo at the start!!

Waves to everyone else, hope you're all OK. Not been managing to read here - crazy busy at work. thank goodness for our top secret group on FB or I'd be way behind the times!!

Happy New Year everyone! Here is to a healthy and kind 2015.

Caro - my friend is on a drug similar to this (not sure if it is the same drug). She's having to pay for it privately though as NHS won't fund it (??5K a year). Her consultant recommended it to her as her cancer is exactly the type it significantly reduces the occurrence of. She's getting monthly injections at moment to suppress ovaries and is seriously considering having ovaries removed entirely (her line is 'if I have them removed its one less type of cancer I could get')

Off to an outdoor interval session with EF tonight - our NY resolution is to go at least once a month. I don't think it is going to be pretty

PG3 - it is cold here in Scotland, but we're used to it, nothing new in daytime temps not getting much past 1 or 2! Good luck with the half tomorrow - hope the hand trick works!

Hoggle - hope nature doesn't keep you hanging on too long and we've got some baby news and baby pics on FB to see soon. Exciting times.

Caro - hope you and E both on mend. Ill now means fighting fit for christmas hopefully!

Usual pre-chistmas manic here. MiL just arrived for a 3 week stay so that's adding to the general stress levels. And must try finish the christmas shopping tomorrow!

Reading and just about keeping up with goings on, just never seem have time to post meaningfully. So christmas waves to everyone... ho ho ho

Not read back fully but wanted to come on to say thinking of you both Camio and TB. ((( )))

TB - have no wise words other than hang in there if its what you want. Does sound like a mid-life crisis though but if you can both work through all these issues together then hopefully you will come out the other side stronger.

CM - standard University happening for the network to fall over on the first day of week 1 of the new term! Our IT folk managed to have a situation in freshers week where new students could send email but they couldn't receive any emails from University staff. Took them 3 days to resolve, hmmm! Sounds like you might manage a fix in far less time though

Caro - both my BC friends had a strange metallic taste in their mouth during chemo treatment. They said it did spoil the taste of things and both went off tea despite being a right pair of tea jennies normally. Cranberry juice was something that worked for one. Also flavoured cordials (elderflower etc) topped up with sparkling water as somehow that made it all bit more palatable! Worth a try? Glad you're feeling bit more human today - enjoy the art therapy, make sure the tears don't smudge any of your lovely painting tho

Re hubby's recall. My uncle had that test and they diagnosed impaired glucose tolerance. He had to stop eating sweet things! Can be an early warning sign for diabetes I think? My uncle went on to develop diabetes (not till he was in his 70s I may add) but its manageable through diet.

PipG - hope its a better day for bottoms in your household!

TTid - happy moving, hope it goes well. The house looks amazing and no doubt you will be glad to get in and get settled.

Not read back but waves for everyone, and big big hugs for those who need them!
