Happy Birthday to Meeeeeeeeeeee!


Clair

Recommended Posts

Today is my fifty-*cough* birthday!

I'm spending it lying on the sofa, laptop on my knees, left foot elevated, as I managed to sprain my ankle last Saturday morning, half-way through a 4km jog...

I hopped back to the house and strapped my ankle, but couldn't back out of the "Bread and Brioche" workshop I had been asked to lead in the afternoon (15 people were registered to attend) so I spent the afternoon on my feet, wrist-deep in dough and flour, and have been paying the price since... [:'(]

  And to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  Well yesterday and you need to add a good few years to Clair's "mere" 50.

A very happy birthday to you, Clair.  In fact, I was thinking about you yesterday as I knew yours is one day after mine.

What did I do?  Had a fab day, doing all my fav things, went to French class and then gym in the evening[:D]

happy birthday to you both. Being a fifty *ahem* something myself, I can tell you that a big bar of chocolate and a large glass of wine go a loooooooooong way to helping you forget the increasing years! But have a great day, both of you!

Happy Birthday Clair.

You might want to consider an alternative form of lower impact excercise as according to a recently published clinical study, road jogging is not recommended for the fifty plusses, as it can often knacker your knees and hips exacerbated by natural bone loss as you age. Apparently, brisk walking is preferable and just as effective, or if you want to continue running jogging machines are a better option being softer than a road surface.
