nighty night phantom, enjoy your early run, i will be cuddling my teacup as you are out
ooh, loula where are you going on holiday?

Wish i could get into my jammies and go to bed Ah well just half an hour till i finish...Has been mega busy today....
Loula..no probs hun you hang on to Deano until after your mara......
jude ..we are lovin the list....hope little un is better in the morning.
hellooo franny...night night frannyyyyy
i am going to bed in a mo, was just checking out the mara course for MK for mr llb...itll be as flat as a pancake...am tempted to do it too but think i will just be a spectator for a day
jude, crikey there are such a lot of bugs going around, just hoping the rest of us on here escape the germies aw jude portfolios at 4? i thought miss llbs homework topics/presentations were bad enough at 8!! hope you get something for your sons birthday, miss llb has already started planning hers which ismt until middle of May and i think our flight could possibly end up being that day! she is quite excited at the prospect of a birthday in the sun
Another disturbed night but little one is sleeping now. I just tried to have a shower but there is something wrong with the boiler.
Loula - Crete is lovely, have you been there before? There is a walk/trek that the king of Greece did in the 2nd world war to escape. It's quite touristy now but worth doing. It lasts about 2 hours I think. (My memory is terrible and I can't remember its name or details etc. but it was about 17 years ago that I went.)
Gastank - wish your little one better.
Have a good day all!
morning all!!! gastank, i am looking for your MOJO...what does it look like? does it wear a little superhero costume*looks outside up in the sky and then in the bushes*...nope ,not there , it'll turn up ...i think everyones mojos are hiding lately mine needs a bit of a fuel injection too.....
jude, no i havnt been to crete, but have been to Zakinthyos(cant rememeber how to spell that)..and i loved it there. Greek islands and roundabouts are my fave place...i will def look into that walk, we are staying somewhere begining with ' H' - thats really helpful isnt it ?i will find out the town later.
gastank, hope little G gets better ...phantom,have you had your run?
Merlie, good morning, if you are passing nearby my village or vice versa let me know and you can drag me round a trail route
Gastank I hope Little Gastank feels better soon.I hate it when the kids are sick.
Mornin Loula and By Eck.
Well went Boxing last night and struggled. I had to ask the coach if I could do different exerises to the others at points. He is lovely and gave me the number of the fizz he uses.I will see what the Doc says and if he sends me to a fizz I will just ring this guy up. Coach says he is really good and he works at a local Footsteps clinic.Im sure they did a night at the Athletics Club.
good morning everybody
4 miles at an easy pace.its nice out there guys
sorry to hear of the sick mojo and child Gastank
have lovely days friends.
Morning guys and dolls
Hope all the sick little people get better soon and that gastank you find your mojo...detective Loula is on the case and she is a good finder.
Ecky..Hope you get on alright at the docs...thats good your coach gave you a fizz number...at least you will have someone else to get advice from.well done for going out to the boxing....((())))) sending you hugs....Imknow only too well what its like being on that injury bench.
AF.....Let us know how you get on at the docs too.
Oooo Loula....Crete how lovely...nice warm sunshine We are booked up for portugal again but not until late August - September....will give us plenty time to save up....
Phantom...well done on your run this morning...you obviously have better weather than me.........Brrrrrrrrr
I went out and did 12.83 mlies Long slow run pace..............but it was rather cold and very breezy although dry........Work for me at 2pm....
Have a good day everyone
Jude- The race list is great- Please can you remove me from the Eastbourne 1/2 and Chichester 10k as I have substituted these races for the Leith Hill 1/2 which cost an arm and a leg. You seem to be a very bust Mummy at the moment?
LLB-I love the Greek Islands went to Crete many years ago. Have you read the book The Island by Victoria Hislop? Great book, based on the lepper colony at Spinalonga which is an island off Crete-worth a visit. We have booked up to go to Centre Parks in Nottingham in August.
gastank-We are all looking for your mojo-it will be back! Hopefully little gastank is getting better!
Phantom-Well done on your 4 miler.
Franny-Well done on your epic 12.83 that is a great workout.
Hi byec eck,Chilli and other Newbies..l
Well I went to the Dr's and he did various tests like checking out my reflexes and looked into my eyes. He said that as a fainting on a one off basis and fitting wasn't an everyday occurrence and is referring me to a Neurologist- I am a little concerned as if it happend again driving would be a major major issue. I have to have some blood tests next week. Part of me wishes I hadn't gone so I can forget about it....now I may have to wait 2-3 months to see a Neurologist- I guess if there is no repeat by then I needn't worry. Luckily I have had no head aches as that could be a great deal more serious.......
So to calm down I went on a 7.6 mile run in 1 hour and a minute & had a little thibk about things......which will equate to try not to worry.
By for mow folks.............
AF - I'm sure it's good that you went even though it now means waiting a few more months for all the appointments. But the Doc didn't say you had to give up stuff did he? So you can keep on with life and running?
Gastank/ Jude - hope your little ones are feeling better.
Holidays sound nice
I did go to bed in good time last night and legs are feeling much better. I got my bike out yesterday adn gave it a clean and pumper up the tyres and so today I did bike ride and swim. Was quite quick on my 50 lengths today. Although the pool was busy cos of the new January swimmers, but it felt good and managed it in just over 35 mins.... which is good for me cos I'm pretty slow at everything
boss...i know you are feeling now like you have to wait for yet another appointment but you know what im going to say. its for the bestreally,you need to know and be sure everything ok. glad you did a good run to chill afterwards though.
franny, wowee a long run before work-you are too good! bet you are looking forward to portugal again...i will try and do some poledancing shots in crete....prob get arrested knowing my luck
phantom, you will be superfit by the time your 10ks come around and probably leave me behind at brill hilly!!
hope the poorly ones feeling perkier today...its lovely and sunny here and quite mild....i wonder if we can creep quietly through the whole of january with this weather...*shhhh*
sitting here icing my foot - I don't think being on my feet all day at work helps as I got home and it was really swollen. Couldn't get a dr appointment today either, will try again tomorrow
Franny - well done on a long run on a work day!
Gastank/Jude - hope the kids are getting better
AF - you know that it is a good thing that you have been to see the dr. If he thought it was serious you would be seeing the neyrologist tomorrow, so hopefully it is nothing.
Should have been going to band practice tonight, but going to goof off and try to have my feet up as much as kids/OH/chores allow! (I play sax but not very well)
On a break at work...Aw mathschick..not so good that your foo t is swollen...rest up and get the kids and OH to run after you.
AF...am pleased you went to the docs and I am sure everything will be fine but best to be checked over by the specialists...try not too worry meantime ...easier said than done i know.....well done on your post doc run...very therapeuitic.
Chill...well done on getting to bed early and glad you had a good bike ride and swim. I am dreadfully slow at swimming.
Wonder how Ecky got on at docs??? Hi Loula....Busy day at work for you was it?
Will try and check in later to see whats happening with the rest of you lovely people.
helloooo franny, hope your shift not too busy and you are having a nice cuppa on your break...do you get bleeped during breaks?
we kind of have our breaks on the go at work, no point trying to stop lol....
chili im very sloooowww at it all too....swimming? i think im good at sinking and wearing pink armbands
Hi loula....No we don't really have allocated breaks either just take as and when depending on how busy.....don't get bleeped..the phone can just go constantly somedays when i am on an office day...last night was really busy....no time for eating dinner in peace.....tonight seems quieter.....touch wood...
Ouch Mathschick Hope the swelling goes down and you can get it looked at.
Loula, I may be better at swimming but I reckon you are going to be far faster than me on your marathon Am so excited for you.
ooo chili, i dont think i will be fast at all..in fact i dont want to be...i need to go out slowly just so i can do those last 6 miles...had another wibbly moment earlier as a friend/forumite on here told me that some races in gloucester had been cancelled due to new highway legislation!!..i emailed the organisers and they replied saying it was still on -phew
good evening gang
look after your tootsie Maths sounds not very nice at all you poor thing
no news from Ecky yet re doc
well done AF these girls dont understand what a sterling thing it is for a man to actually go to a GP in the first place. He has done the right thing i think sending you to a head man,no pun intended, and its up to you to get every test x ray scan etc going to confirm that this was just a blip and nothing else that might slow down such a good runner.
i am being a good boy and sticking to my schedule Loula though i do really fancy a run tomorrow too
and no i dont think youll be following me up the hillies.I dont like hills and up till now slow to a walk before i hit the summit
Everybody else poorly get better please and everybody else run,swim or bike or all three
Sorry i've been so busy with work and college,i haven't been able to post.
So back to the song of the day.Tomorrows tune is a Britpop classic.It's Blur and 'For Tomorrow'.
Still a bit under the weather,but i'm hoping to get back out running in a week or so,then i've got to find a couple of Spring races.
Jude,I'm thinking of entering the IOW HM as part of my ABO preps.If i do i'll see you there.
socks????????? i will go find it gastank
milton keynes and roundabouts? tell me abt them!! nightmare! MK is only 40min frm here and we go there to shop- BUT - i know one way in...and one route out. ebnd of, i cannot deviate in anyway from that route or am lost in a big way......MK can put the fear of god into the most confident of drivers lol.....
had a brainwave today. we live 20mins if that from Blenheim palace and often go there in summer. at the mo there is a deal on converting a day pass into a yearly pass. past 3 years i have done the ox5run which is 5miles at Blenheim for Oxford childrens hospital. blenheim isnt major hills but there are some good inclines to train on. ive asked mr llb -well told him actually- that we are going to get a yearly pass and then i can drive there ,park up and do some trail runs!! yyyyyyippppppppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee *boingy boingy boingy*
gastank, i think your mojo will be back.
phantom, a rest day is in order me thinks for you-dont want another injured!!
