Thanks Frodo. Enjoyed the 'kitten' therapy. Maybe that was the breakthrough!
Bah humbug! I always moan about Christmas decorations appearing in November. Trouble is my excuse runs out after tomorrow.
Good for you SOLB. Keep battling on.
Bricki - the name is basically because i looked like a builder who was building the new 6th form. That doesnt mean i wasn't a hellraiser in school though
i published a new piece on my running/depression blog last night http://www.therunningfella.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/technique-is-the-key-to-the-lock/
basically saying we need techniques and constant refinements to stay at our best in life.
Thank you - The german accent was very funny at the time (and awful)
its amazing how Bricki has stuck with me - everyone calls it me now.
Wish you were a year older SOLB, I found a perfect card!
2-3 hours SOLB? I'd just eat takeway with disposable items instead!
I'm all moved up now to Sheffield (yesterday was long and very tiring). Found out I've passed my thesis which is awesome but need to sort out printing and stuff while moving in and starting new job next week. I am really pleased about it but pretty nervous about starting someone new and meeting people and trying to at least appear competent to colleagues!
That's a good blog Bricki, I'm not sure if I took it as seriously as I might have without a German accent! Have you read brain training for runners by Matt Fitzgerald? It's all about running, but is good for making you think about how you run.
Ive not heard of that no, i will look it up. The german accent was brilliant at the time i must admit.
Well I did it and managed a run on my own. Just 31 minutes but that's more than I've managed on my own for a long time. Hopefully will create a bit of confidence to get out and build on that. Glad I live in an area where there's a couple of old quarry areas nearby. It means they're now pleasant parkland and lakes and they can't build yet more houses there. Makes a much nicer place to run.
I do find it can be more difficult the longer it is since I've been our running. Sometimes other commitments do have to take priority but I hope you can get out there tomorrow though. Sounds like you could benefit from it.
Go for it SOLB. You can make it a target to outdo me with 32 minutes. Must be a tough time for you though if you're not making progress. Sending lots of hugs. Hope it helps.
Hope tomorrow goes OK then. I've only just started taking medication. I've fought on for a long time without but finally just had to give way. Anyway, the 'happy pills' are just starting to kick in which is helping. Only down side is I'm not sleeping as well. Currently on a bit of a high as I've been out at a quiz night and had a good time - and alcohol! Got to be up tomorrow as I'm doing an orienteering event locally. Hope to build on today's efforts.
I just started for month then didn't get an appointment sorted with my GP on time so I had a few days without. I really went downhill at that point. I'm now on a repeat prescription though. I've been reluctant becuase I've always felt that it's only a temporary solution. Anyway, can only take things one day and one step at a time.
Hic! Feeliung pissed and with "comfortably numb" by the Floyd blaring away downstairs. Feeling this moment is poignant but not quite sure how at the moment.
Today is positive but burnt muffins took the ege off it somehow
Life needs to shape up but not sure if I need to do some kicking right now. Confused :-/
