This is todays cardio work out. Check out the great scenery! We live really close to the Warburton Rail Trail and this was taken on about 10k of the track. Husband waited vainly for a train at Wesburn station- I think he might still be there, it's awfully quiet in the house tonight!
And look deb and kerryn- butt- ugly shoes!!!

Aiming at getting more cardio into my life at the moment. I'm NOT going to avoid the bike and I WON'T be the lazy lump I've been in the past few months!! How's that for a goal??? My foot is definitely improving and I'm doing a little more running on it. I really want to enter for the 8k Mother's Day Classic but I think I'm being pressured into going into the 4k instead. I guess it makes sense as I know that I'll want to run much more than I should. Being sensible is SUCH a pain!!!

A fairly dorky pic and don't forget this is taken after a day of wear and tear and no brush inbetween!

Oh- and I've had my twice a year haircut- lol ( almost but perhaps a little more frequently but not much!) and I'm now more red than I have been and considerably shorter. Feels great- quick blow with the hairdryer, brief rub with the wax and lots and lots of spray and I'm done!!!
My foot- which I have been whinging about for over a year now- is definitely on the improve!!! I'm sure my 'butt ugly" ( Kerryn's words, not mine!) shoes have helped. I ran and walked 3 k this morning but with less walking than I usually do. The best part is that I come away without so much discomfort. It doesn't hurt when I do it and even when I've cooled down the pain is much less if at all. I've got one more swiss ball class to go to and I think I'll just about survive it. I started going for the ladies at the gym who are on this 'war on waistlines' program. The class has been fun and getting together with the others helps enormously. I won't keep doing it though as it's not at a very convenient time for me - (breathes a sigh of relief!! lol)

I've just spent the last 3 hours glued to the phone and this computer. Seems I unleashed a very nasty type of virus that kept sending porno type popups to me! After speaking to someone in India and then a quick trip to Canada I now have a sparkling new pc ( squeaky clean and absolutely devoid of nasties) !!!. I must repeat after myself - " I must NEVER open anything or click on ANYTHING that looks remotely suspicious". All it was was a website that had a video of a medical condition that I was researching. By agreeing to download the program needed to view it I unwittingly unleashed the virus- be warned!!!

Chung Shi runners! Whoowee!!! I did it! Thanks heaps Clarkie for the help.

Just rename me Imelda! Another pair of shoes purchased and duly worn. These shoes are amazing actually. Called Chung Shi ( they are very interesting to wear! They are taking a bit of getting used to but I really do think they have helped my plantar fasciitis. My feet feel as though they have been massaged after wearing them and I'm not getting nearly as much discomfort as I normally do. The downside? I much prefer the look of my 'frou- frou' pink ones!!

By the way- can someone tell me how to add a link to a web page without having to put the whole address in! I've looked and tried but dismally failed:((

I've been following 'littlerenes' blog with interest. I love hearing about little Maya and seeing all the pictures. Littlerene seems so capable and in control which is lovely. Our son turns 30 on Sunday ! It seems incredible that all that time has passed. I can still remember quite clearly the first time I saw him and the first time we held him. There is nothing quite as amazing as childbirth!

Phew! Monday is such a busy day. I start at 9am and finish at 9pm!. It's all good fun though. The teaching at TAFE is going well but busy busy busy! I've come home with lots of follow up stuff to do. I'd forgotten how much take home work there always is. Gym work is going well too- so no complaints over this side of town! I did a swiss ball class last Tuesday but could only do half as I was going out for dinner to the pancake parlour! However tomorrow night I need to stay and do the whole lot. It was MEGA hard!!! How can something look so simple but be almost impossible to do???

Off to see the vampires tomorrow. I need to drink lots and remember to take my time leaving the place. I have the vaguest of memories of fainting fairly disgracefully after one blood letting- I think cos I just tried to get going too soon. Anyway it will mean a nice rest with bikkies and tea and a magazine for a while- how civilised!!
