Intended to go for an 8 mile walk today, it ended up being 13 miles due to me getting lost. I don't know if you can do to much exercise - is walking 80 miles on average a week and playing 6 a side two nights in a row each week to much?

Highly commendable and if you feel okay from it then the answer's no. You'll know when it's too much; your body will tell you.

Eldest son has just spent 4 days promoting the game he programmed with Stitch Games - at the Eurogamer Expo, Earl's Court..

it's getting very favourable reviews! :D

scroll down to his section: Best of the Leftfield Collection (small independant games companies)

and read the second entry about my son's game - Rok...

TBF I walk at least 8 miles everyday anyhow(I live out of the stick and have a 4 mile walk to the station in the morning and then the same back in the evening). The reason for this is that although there is a bus it costs £5 for a return, even a 10 trip(as in 5 returns) is £35. I already pay £56 a month for 1 stop(3 miles on the train), if I started getting the bus I would have no money to go and watch Bolton at all. Being on minimum wage I have to decide is important to me and what isn't.

Am I missing something here? It's been a very long week. But if 1 return costs £5, then Shirley 5 returns should cost at the most £25? :conf:

Sorry I meant 10 returns, I'm an idiot! Believe it or not I never had a bicycle as a kid, so never learnt.

Never too late Dan. Does your employer operate the 'cycle to work' scheme? Mine does, so i'll be buying one and saving the tax and NI on the payments. Got to be worth your while.

No they don't, does it save the company any money?
