Ok Online Dating…

Having dabbled in online dating I can really relate to this, amusing one liners or odd requests it seems normal and honest aren’t that forthcoming in the online world ….

Cue out of date photo stories or the man who needed a stranger to sit in the room whilst he played naturalist, yes the did really happen!

I have I belief in being honest and up front when online but truthfully it never works ….

Online dating is a bit like steak tartare these days – love it or hate it, it’s on the menu. For some it’s the main dish, for others, something they return to in times of famine. And then there are those like me, who view it as a once off taste test, just to say we’ve had the experience. Most people I know have tried it at least once, with varying degrees of success. The spectrum ranges from dating horror stories, to happy couples who are still a bit loath to admit they met this way, to the proselytizing extremists, who insist it is the way, the truth and the life.

I’ve always been a bit skeptical about the virtual approach to meeting a mate. It’s partly the taboo and stereotype that only losers and freaks who can’t cut it in real life encounters need…

Post route, first day eeks!

So I woke up at six, no clubby and the howlers hollering at the early hours !

Must of been tired !

Thinking I shouldn’t move I stayed still listening for any snap, crackle or pop, I curled and stretched like a cat and was pleasantly surprised I didn’t creak any more than after the 10k I did with plenty of training 🙂

There was a gentle pressure in my toes and tweek in my right foot, not a shock.

Turning and putting my feet down resulted in a bit of a surprise !


A bruise that doesn’t hurt and in a place that hasn’t bothered me, well the bottom of the foot had so it must of leaked upwards 😉

With an added bonus

Both big toes had blisters under the nail, not too bad.

I could walk, talk and breath….

A bonus 😉

I strapped the foot and compressed the calves (quicker recovery I have found and less swelling)

By lunch time the the pressure was building..

I had to say the lactic acid build up was too, so a stretch and rub down was needed.

After the second school run. The blisters were peeking out of the topof my nail.

Oooo attractive!

By tea time….

I Had to relieve the pressure of the blisters under my toe nails, atleast I know where some of the mountains of water went that I drank other than sweat 😉

Looks like I’ll have one and a half less toenails :/

Clubby has effectively covered the bruising and looks chubbier than ever.

Personally I think I came off lightly so many casualties by the side of the road.

Very grateful I wasn’t one !



Dear clubby and the howlers

Realising you have made friends with Nellie who has nestled in against my chest, allowing the delightful bark and you have now wiggled up into the pocket near the curve at the base of my spine this evening.
I would politely request that, although you have refused all previous eviction notices, that you pack up your troubles and march on by for tomorrow’s event.
Yours sincerely
A pain and tired me

Terrified, sore, guilty.

I shouldn’t be
I have trained ! not enough I’m sure,
But enough to walk it atleast
But this flare the ache in my knees
Altered sensation in the foot
Fat fingers,
And Nellie that is snuggling in to my chest.
For that reason I can honestly say
I have pure terror running through my veins
If I am sore from walking upstairs or around super market for food shopping how the hell can I motivate for this ?
Every alarm in my body is screaming no every stubborn as brain function says well walk it at least you turned up and tried.
Which is winning ?
To be honest it’s 50/50 today
All I want to do us curl in a ball and hide !
Or have a hug.
Life isn’t helping I have one in meltdown over a boy, who has also developed what looks like the eye issues I have (cue guilt driven beating) and another in meltdown over new beginnings and a man who she wants as a possession.
So typically my heads a wobble so match the aches.
I honestly pray that there’s enough adrenaline in my body to make it through, the big walk.
But for today it’s off to my old friend the eye casualty 😦

Hating this elephant

Normally an animal lover,
to be fair I own two dogs
and a cat
but in the last few days,
my new pet has been an elephant,
Sitting squarely on my chest.
Thankfully the niggling cough that
Fidgets it’s fats ass
Up and down
Has now settled to an occasional bark,
Much like that of one of the dogs.
But still it’s sitting there
Waiting for any sign of exertion
Where by it snuggles in alittle deeper
So my lunch wants to revisit
And I feel the need to sit
So glad my backside rivals it’s own or comfort would be difficult
Unfortunately with a long run necessary this evening
I am one cross elephant owner
I really want it too leave.
Suggestions welcomed.

Flaring away

It’s nearly a week till the first major run/crawl and honestly I’m very sure the most I can manage is a crawl….

I am today sitting at six in the morning nursing a body that doesn’t want to function, breathing hurts!

And as much as I just want to curl up and cry that hurts too!!!

Really praying this passes before Sunday or I maybe letting my whole team down !

Tickets are booked, accommodation is booked, arrangements made 😦
