    @martaindale I'm glad you had a much better run today!

    @polskagirl01 Glad the furnace is working. I hope your tummy feels better. It probably is just the stress of moving. I know my system gets messed up easily when things change and I'm stressed. Glad the kids are doing well in their new school AND that you found someplace to do speedwork! Hang in there. Moving is hard.
    I'm having a lot of, umm, female issues atm which, although I'm only 43, seem to be pointing to perimenopause. My husband insists I'm too young and it's all because I exercise too much . That isn't a good thing to say to a hormonal mess of a middle-aged mother of a teenager with issues, btw.
    Hahaha I'm sure someone on here needs this advice! You could very well be perimenopause. I stopped when I was 48, but am sure I would have gone through the change sooner, had I not been on birth control pills. My mom stopped at 35 or 40. They say you tend to follow your mother's schedule. Do you know if she went through early menopause or not?

    Love the shoe porn @TheMrWobbly ! I'd love to find some women's shoes in that color.

    @eleanorhawkins Don't you just hate the "it's your age" answer. I remember the first time the doctor said, "Well, at your age...." I wanted to sucker punch him. LOL If the symptoms are bothering you, I would talk to your doctor. My mom didn't have many of the typical symptoms. I on the other hand are still having hot flashes at times. Not as bad as they used to be, thankfully.

    Great running @Faebert . Sometimes the treadmill is our friend.

    @kirstymn I think seeing the building your work in would be interesting. Just saying.

    Recovery week, rest day, no exercise = shoe porn. Road shoes have arrived.

    A bit of a bargain at £48 so I bought another pair in black - not so photogenic!

    NOICE! Any time I find a pair of ASICS on sale around here, they're an ugly color. These look good.
