If you have a life outside of BWFC, then this is the place to tell us all about your toilet habits, and those bizarre fetishes.......

Ran my fastest (or least slow ;) ) 5K sine Dec 2018 this morning, which was nice.

Good stuff. I puffed round a very slow 3 miles last night. At my least fittest in a good while I think! :cry:

Good work, you'll be skipping up that hill with a beaming smile when parkrun gets going again.

Nice one!

Not looking forward to tonight's run out on the parkrun course. It's gonna hurt!

Yeah it's ridiculous. Something pinged in my leg last time it was this hot about 4 weeks ago and still isn't fixed. Going stir crazy again.
I really fancy a swim and Boris has just said no to pools for ages yet! :evil: Still, saving a shed load with the kids swimming lessons and swim club fees (if we hadn’t had to spend it on car repairs)!

Leg sounds painful Pru. Shame, you were flying along fitness wise weren’t you?
Pool opening delayed again. Plenty of Open Water Swimming to choose from though.
You must be joking! 🥶
What? The temperature is 18 to 22 degrees in the water at the moment. Lovely

Plodded round 4 miles tonight. Decided if I’m going to be slow then I’ll try and up the mileage slowly instead.

Try ultra running. Them buggers walk most of it!

My second best time for the Bolton PR course since Jan 19 tonight, and 55 seconds per KM quicker (less slow) than this time last month. Oh trust me, it's really not as impressive as it sounds ;)

Or a triathlon where I can just cheat and get on my bike when I get knackered?
