Just A Little Bit Further 2013



  • Just been for a walk to the shops - mile each way and definitely thawing. Not safe to run in, which is very frustrating. Means the,trail routes will be even muddier
  • LLB, I am in Dubai.  It's winter here as well but that means overnight temps around 5 degrees and daytime temps 20 - 25 degrees.  Mostly blue skies cos it only rains a couple of times a year.  Have lived here for 4 1/2 years and am moving back to London in a couple of months time, carefully timed so that the shock is not too much for my system image


  • afternoon

    llb - yes, 10 is too young to be left alone. Hope you managed to persuade her to carry bags

    OH took the kids to play in the snow and I walked to the gym, it was so hot in the gym it was really hard to do cardio, but did 5k on the treadmill and some weights

    the kids got really really cold and soaked through but they have been dunked in a warm bath and had some nice hot soup so they are fine now

  • Hi guys!

    Just back from school.  It's raining here. Gonna do piano lessons in a minute with my kids.  We have some new Harry Potter music for daughter to learnimage That's as exciting as it gets here.......image

    BFN xxxx


  • my exercise consisted of scraoing car clear of snow-driving totown, and lugging bags of shoping a mile back to car lol


  • Afternoon all

    My exersize conisted of Chico walking in the snow....yes the snow finally arrived here last night..its beginning to melt away now as the sun has been out image Chico was so funny bounding about in it all and had fun with all the doggies in the park...silly us forgot to take the camera image we took it this afternoon though but doesn't look as good as nearly all the snow has gone....the cheeky sacmp stole a wee girls hat...she thought it was funny and was chasing him about the place...

    well done anyone who has managed running and hope you get out to run tomorrow if you have one planned.

  • Snow wasn't really suitable to run or cycle on which is okay cos i have guests so can't go out anyway. We did have a walk through the country park this afternoon though.

    Otherwise I am on overdrive mode for food trying to keep everyone fed!

  • Have you see this?


    Watch the sportskids of the year clip. It is soooo moving.

  • We're waiting to see if moo needs to go to hospital. He is starting to get dehydrated. Has lost even more weight and we just can't get him to.drink any kind of milk.
  • morning

    by eck - hope you don't have to have the trip to hospital.

    no exercise for me today, I turned round yesterday afternoon and my knee 'went' again, really painful, can't move it much. So fed up. I am going to go t the gp tomorrow to see if he will refer me for an mri

  • chili - that had me in tears, what a lovely boy that is

  • It's just started snowing again
  • Mooooooorning

    Chilli that brought a lump to my throat. What an inspirational young man and such an amazing family. Sounds like you are very busy too. I hope you are having a lovely time with your guests.

    No running for me again today as there is even more snow. We are attempting to walk to church in a bit as our Car is still stuck by Hubby's Van. The walk to the shops was not too bad yesterday and we got plenty stuff but then I spent the rest of the day in bed as I felt really yucky. My cold is all in my head and I just cant seem to shift it. Hubby has been fab though and did all the washing and cooking. I am feeling a bit better today though so hopefully this is the end of it.


  • Oh By Eck, I hope moo is going to be okay. Thinking of you

  • Awwww Mathschick, that must really be getting you down image

  • ecky - yeah I am really fed up. hope your cold clears up soon

    Mathschick......Ouchyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy....did you do it at the gym ?

    Ecky..Hope your cold goes away soon. Good your feeling a wee bitty better.

    Bitterly cold here today and quite icy in places....no running for me...being sensible as no need to run really and no point if icy underfoot..mara training not started for me yet thank goodness.

    Have a nice day everyone

  • Thanks Franny, yeh I am starting to get back to my usual self. Just off to shops now in the snow to get some stuff to bake a nice cake for pudding later. I am not running either even though I am in Marathon training, I dont see a point in getting injured and being off for longer. I may have to run up and down the stairs for a bit. Snow is getting bad again here.

  • franny - not at the gym, I was getting ready to take little one to his guitar lesson, went to get a scarf, picked it up, turned round, and I guess it was the twisting that did it image
