Soz Silver I have been finishing work early as I have so many flexi hours owing me and still have infact
Hi Sabbie, hope you manage a run today
Well I went out with Run England group last night, only 5 of us and they all quicker so we did abit more than normal 3.88 miles I struggled in places but then one of the other girls said when we finished that she also did which made me feel better hehe
Out with other club tonight to do abit more
Well Chrimbo is creeping upon us now, everything seems to go slightly mental in these last 2-3 weeks ah. I have some holiday owing so am off to Wales from 15th-19th, my folks have a place there so going to stay with them and get in plenty of running really looking forward to getting away on my own, hubby has no hols left, and really doing loads of running. I think fingers crossed I should be able to make December the most miles run in a month and also my transition from beginner to Novice haha
Well if you have 3 days off you could still get some running in even with home duties you are more than welcome to join me running in Wales, all that sea air does wonders for the health I bet it will be darn cold thou
I know I am lucky to be able to do what I want when I want, I do remind myself now and again to not take everything for granted and know how lucky I am just wish the OH did the same once in a while
No sorry I was just thinking out loud really, having a moan about the OH my flexi time is great for him also as his hours are 6 till 1.30 every day. I just wish he appreciated what he has abit more, like take a step back and realise there are so many people alot worse off.....hey hoo such is life I am a real optimist he is a real pessimist
Am off now, catch u tomoz
"Sup QT? Bin running l8ly? XLNT! FYI M8 I'm BK2WK 2day bt my ED Still 8ks! wot U up2 Hun?"
Oh my goodness Silver! Can't believe you managed that. Took me longer than I care to admit to decipher it, particularly "ED 8ks" but I'm sorry your head was still aching!!! You made me laugh, then I had to explain why to my "OH" to end the strange look he was giving me! Did you have help?
Sabbie, I'm glad that cold finally cleared off, you poor thing, that was the longest one ever. Good you managed to get out for a run. Well done.
Booey, will you still come back to speak to us when you're a *gasp* novice?! Well done getting so close. Mr Mal is a pessimist too, it gets annoying sometimes but I'm just grateful I see life in a happier more positive way.
Running, I went out with my lovely twin sister (she's SOLB on these forums) and her friend also from here. It was good fun to get out and show them some of my little route but I was nervous because I set the pace etc I think it went well and it was fun to meet someone new.
The 10k is a race I've signed up for in March, I've got ages to get up to it but I want to make sure I'm doing it at the right speed. I'd rather have done 10k regularly before the race so that I can enjoy the experience a little more. Do you have any advice?
Both children are being little angels and sleeping at the moment, how long will it last? I completed the application for a school place for my Big Girl this afternoon and cried my heart out, it was so sad, she's too little to go to school!
I have just had real problems getting on here, not sure what I have done but the login button at the top has disappeared and its still not there plus everything looks different, logged off and on again and still not right strange
Anyhow I didn't club run last night, it was absolutely tipping it down for about 2hours solid where I was, I don't mind getting wet but that was ridiculous
Cant run later as straight to hotel for xmas do tonight so will have a short run 2moz then LSR sunday. Oh and have running club xmas drinks 2moz night. I shall not be drinking tonight or tomorrow night how good am I this will be the first work do I have not got rather tipsy haha
Catch u in a bit if I can get on again haha
The profile pictures are all in the wrong place now, how do I change that?
Nah not having a drink I need to run this weekend, its much more important
We had the sleigh round our village last night, I love it brings back so many good memories for me when I was a child
Shame about Santa duties, gutted for you but sure you'll be a pretty reindeer!
I didn't get out all weekend, too busy making Xmas decorations, which failed miserably! Leaky snowglobes containing drowned Santas, robins and snowmen anyone? To add to the domestic Goddess image I made a chocolate cake but forgot all about it, luckily it didn't burn but it wasn't exactly a slice of perfection!
Swimming this morning was fun, only us in the whole pool so we made an enormous rainbow from swimming aids and had a great time.
Will sneak off for a run tomorrow, aiming for 5k I think, love the idea of the option of an extension if I'm feeling ok.
Only 150 miles, best get moving before I overtake you!
Despite my recent performance I love cooking and baking, I'm pretty ok at it, usually. I like doing stuff with the cute little ones but I'm rubbish at lots of other things instead to balance it out!
Agree it's exhausting this time of year, Mr Mal and I are having martyr-ish "tired wars". I nearly always have a head start because he doesn't ever do nights with our baby owls! But he's edging a lead with his reocurring headaches. (I sometimes cheat by exaggerating wildly but he'll never know because he was too busy snoring!)
I'll post the crafty abominations to you in the morning.
Why do I always get a second wind and want to go running at 10pm? When it's a reasonable time after I've put the Big Girl to bed I'll be the exhauted heap in the corner but 10pm and suddenly I'm a bouncy runner again.
Oooooh exciting news on the Garmin purchase!
Uh-oh, I hadn't thought of Mr Mal faking snoring!!! Although we have a long standing agreement that I will always do all nights because he's foul if he hasn't had a full night's sleep!
Went for a huge, long run at 10pm but only in my head! Decided not to but heading out today. I am finding it tough to motivate myself while it's dark. Can't wait for lighter/longer days.
