Re: The athletics/running thread

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. All done! 7.5k with some bloody tough climbs. No injuries, just a pair of split pum...

Re: The athletics/running thread

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 don...

Re: The Politics Thread

Been watching the shenanigans in the USA this evening. Trump sending thugs into counts to try and stop them. Proclaiming victory in Penn when the truth is it’s very much too close to call. Trying to go to court to get votes thrown out. What’s the difference between this and how the Nazis took contr...

Re: The athletics/running thread

You motivated me Bruce. Now the kids are back at school this week I’ve no good excuse either so dusted off my running shorts that have been languishing in a drawer for the last month, grabbed my trainers and the dog and set off for a very slow, unfit, humid few miles. Hated every minute of it! Befo...

Re: The athletics/running thread

I'm very happy everyone is keeping up the exercise (or starting again in GG's case). I've trained through the summer but motivation has suffered due to the whole race season cancelling.

Re: The athletics/running thread

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! Or a triathlon where I can just cheat and get on my bike when I get knackered? Yeah......that's not how triathlons work though. Sorry It's...

Re: The athletics/running thread

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 did it. Got out. Hated every minute of it and it was slow and short. Bit depressed now. Don’t want to go again!
Why depressed? It's not the first time you've been considered slow and short, surely? :wink:
