And BP on his face. Still, the grounds softer on the hills. He might survive this run all teeth intact.

I struggled round 3 miles yesterday. First time out In ages. I hate distance running. Bring back t & f!

Is that marketing speak for a pair of trainers?
I believe it is, yes. :D

I'd be intrigued to find out what exactly a plasma guard is/does if they come with an instruction manual :D

It means they're waterproof. I'd imagine it'll be an expanded PTFE membrane, or summat very similar. :)

Another slow 3 miler today. 2nd in 3 days after nothing for about 3 weeks though so progress. Agreed to run with friends twice next week too. So much easier to go out with someone. I will lose this lockdown weight gain! :oops:

Why couldn't they just call them waterproof pumps then? :D

Tsk - they provide a complete barrier against ground dwelling, plasma sucking aliens.

Get with the marketing campaign, people.

Oh trust me, they won't be getting referred to as being anything other than 'waterproof pumps' by yours truly :D

Enjoy your run today Guys. Will be thinking of you climbing up that mountain in the pouring rain whilst I sit in my nice warm house. Bruce will be reet in his new pumps. Bp, hope you’ve sorted your dental insurance.

It’s all road. No mud involved. At least I hope it is! Thanks, I think. Gum shield and scuba diving gear packed!

All done! 7.5k with some bloody tough climbs. No injuries, just a pair of split pumps. 🙄 Didn’t rain much either! ☔️ 😎

I ran 5 miles tonight. First time since February I have done that distance. Super slow but really pleased with myself. Only set out to do 4 miles but felt ok so we pushed it on. Back out again later in the week for a short one. Hoping twice a week will help with the fitness and my weight!!

Well done lads. Saturday I ran 6 miles round the woods of Trent Park. Got absolutely filthy but great fun. Yesterday I did 13 miles in the piss pouring rain and loved that too. Can't swim at the moment but thought I'd combined both yesterday. Literally wrung out all my clothes. 😁

7.76 KM - you're selling us short :D Nice and flat(ish) track tonight. I'm in 10's if you need to borrow pumps ;)

7.53km for me on the same bloody app! Did your extra distance include nipping through the McDonalds ‘run’ through for brekkers? 😉 See you over Brangy way on Thursday. Pumps are a size 8. Not quite able to enjoy the luxury of GG’s VAT free trainers!
