Not at all. It's just a ruse. Growing cows to provide steak is fine. ;-)
If you ate less steak you probably wouldn’t need to walk as much. 🤔

Anyway, there’s a vacancy going now for an elderly walker, hero and fundraiser. I could see you stepping into Sir Tom’s (RIP) shoes...

Re: The athletics/running thread

I think after today's effort my current "fitness" level would best be described as "Pre-season Sarcevic after a bargain bucket, 10 pints and 20 Woodbine" and even that doesn't come close. It’s going well then? It's more weightlifting than athletics, waddling my lardy arse around 3k at a slow walk. ...

Re: The athletics/running thread

Have run 4 miles once a week for the last 3 weeks. Took nearly a minute off the first time last week and over a minute off tonight (despite a dog poo trauma! 😩) Admittedly I’ve just gone from very, very slow to very slow but happy days. Now need to motivate myself to get out 2 or 3 times a week...

Re: Diving Arsenal Players - The Least Shocking Admission Ever

Rob Holding just signed a new contract for us. Happy days. I like him as a player and he’s got a great attitude. Him, Tierney and Saka are probably the only 3 performed consistently well over the course of the season for us so far.

Re: The athletics/running thread

First ‘run’ of the year tonight. Nothing to write home about. Short and slow. However the chance to compare home schooling woes with an actual adult human whilst we take 1-1 exercise suddenly means running becomes a far more attractive proposition.

Re: The athletics/running thread

How are your feet LE? Anyone got any grand athletic ambitions for next year? Mine involve the usual eat less junk food, do more exercise which I will probably fail at before the first week of January is up. I’d also like to see myself high up the age rankings in triple jump as a V40 which was the sa...

Bridgerton. A racy glamorous period drama. Most of you lot would probably hate it but I’m really enjoying.

Re: General Chit Chat

Struggling to remember what day it is between Christmas and new year. It’s weird enough at the best of times but in tier 4 with nothing to do and no one to see it’s even weirder. Being an introvert I’d quite love it if I was on my own, but with 3 young bored children it’s hard work. Have played more...
