Re: The athletics/running thread

First taste of swimming training tonight on my first foray into the tri club. Christ on a bike. I know people sometimes say they were done after the warm up: that was me today. And then they wanted us to do a pyramid totaling 1.2km! I almost passed out after the first 400m. Most swimming I've done i...

Re: The Olympics

Fair play to Blummenfelt, looked like he was running on fumes but timed it perfectly.

Re: The Olympics

He's obviously an incredible athlete but loving the contrast of the lean, chiseled figures of the lead Triathletes and the Norwegian lad with them who looks like he woke up this morning after a skinful and realised he had to run a triathlon this morning.

And now he has taken the lead!

Re: Where are you going tonight?

need to get to the lakes more often. I don't think I ever 'not' said this when leaving the place. Keswick remains my favourite town in all the UK. Last day on Sunday we went there. Bit of pitch and putt, pissing about on a boat, some scoops in a local watering hole and then lazing around admiring t...

Re: The athletics/running thread

Normality will seem a lot closer tomorrow with frickley country parkrun and a filthy breakfast. In keeping with tradition I'll be having a skinful in Chapel Allerton tonight. Still not there physically but will be donning the hi-viz vest tomorrow instead. Looking forward to arguing with some not-ri...

Re: Where are you going tonight?

Back from a weekend in the Lake District. In retrospect, while I preparing for all weathers is sensible, I rather think packing two jumpers and a raincoat was excessive. Got there Friday morning and we topped Blencathra in the afternoon. Nice, even if the scramble up Sharp Edge was more nerve-wracki...

Re: Pre-season frendlies

Yeah I think it's just minutes, fitness and kicking a ball about at the minute.

I note Evatt's recent comments about Amaechi being way behind the rest (or words to that effect) in terms of fitness levels. Get him on laps up rivvy pike! :D

Re: The athletics/running thread

Managed 4km yesterday evening. First 'proper' run for five months. Still some twinge but overall thrilled with that. Running doesn't seem impossible again.

Good job too because there is plenty of excess beef to shift! 😳

Anyhow, sounds like Saka is in for Sancho as only change - if BBC are right.

Which is what I predicted.

Re: European Finals.

I think the tournament for England and the media has been relatively low key....until today. The whole triumphalent 'its coming home' stuff is just starting to creep towards 'winding the opposition up' territory for me. We really should learn - there is a tough game tonight and whilst England are f...

Re: Your England XI
