How sad is this??? Here I am at Coolangatta airport waiting for the 20 minutes until we can board and I'm using that time to sit here blogging!!!! lol. It does help to pass the time though. I had the BEST time yesterday- I met up with fellow blogger DEBSTAR ( I have no idea how to link that to her blog:((( ) I did feel a few flutters in the tummy just before we met wondering how the day would go- well......... I think that after about 6 hours of solid talking we had generally put the world right!!! lol It was such a good day! Saw lots of the Gold Coast that I wouldn't have seen otherwise. We did lots of walking and paddling and sitting and talking. Keep a look out on here cos when I get home I'll post all the pics I took. Thanks deb for giving up your time- I really enjoyed your company.

Ran 6 k this morning with my orthotics and did ok. However now I'm really sore on my other knee!! The one that is ok! Damn! I'm not going to go in the 'run for kids'. Made that decision this arvo- really disappointed but I think it's the best thing to do. Just in the middle of packing to go away tomorrow- can hardly wait!!

Whooowoooo! We're heading to the Gold Coast on Sunday and I can hardly wait!! It's work for him and play for me! Actually what I really feel like doing is just sleeping! I think I'm severely sleep deprived! Looking forward to having time to walk and run and shop and of course- plenty of coffees. Hopefully will catch up with you, Deb ,if you're around.

Talk about being flat out!! I think I'm busier now that I was when I was full time working! I'm really enjoying the gym work and it's becoming easier and more familiar. Not sure about these hours though! Guess I'll get used to that too. Now.....this run for kids is looming and I feel so unprepared for it. The last couple of runs I've done I've been absolutely woeful. It's been hot so I'm hoping that that is the reason and that on the day it will be cloudy, raining ever so lightly and about 18 degrees. Not much to ask for I don't think!. My foot is still causing a bit of grief but I just want to make it through this run then I'll back off. Getting old is a real trial!!!!!

This is my reliving my childhood fantasies!!! Went away on the weekend and saw a wonderful equestrian display. Couldn't resist so bought the horse, rider, fences and accessories. Don't ask me what I'm going to do with all this but maybe a display like you have model railways?

I sent a similar pic to a friend who thought it was ME on the horse and that I'd done a spot of riding on this weekend!! Perhaps she needs glasses!

Had the hardest run on Saturday! Tried for 12k and managed to run about 10 and then dragged myself through the last 2 at a run/walk/crawl. I think I was fairly dehydrated or something- felt quite shivery and tingly ( it was very humid) Anyway took me the best part of the day to recover- just felt like lying down - which is really unlike me! Anyhow I'm still alive and kicking and raring to go on another 12k this saturday!. Gardening seems to have taken a back seat doesn' t it? No more showing off and posting pics on here for sometime. Work has taken over my life again. I'm really enjoying the gym work and its gradually becoming less of a strain and worry. Kerryn- those pop squats look diabolical!!!!
