The athletics/running thread

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.......

Zwifting? That’s kept me going over lockdown as work pressures have meant I’ve generally not been able to get out and ride.
Yes mate. Me too. Not many breaks in the weather for outdoors. I'm doing the ZWIFT WTRL TTT on Thursday evenings. Usually a flattish course but balls out for 50 minutes in teams of four. Good fun.

Well, who knew that 12 weeks of uncut hair weighs a stone and a half? :conf:

Just had a thing to say that there's a 10k on in Leeds in June. Do you know about this one, LE?

42 miles out on the bike today, first along the horrid A5 before venturing through some lovely Chilterns countryside. First time I've ridden that far in a long long time. Loved it and, more importantly, not a hint of pain.

Now for pasta and a bath, although not at the same time.

Not sure if I'm misunderstanding or missing a joke, but no! Just had to do 10 miles on the A-roads out of london before hitting the nice bit.

Added an extra five miles as the tube stopped at Wembley, reminded me how awful cycling in built-up london is :lol:

Nice. I’ve not done any TTTs. Tend to race once a week, and then mix in workouts and social meet-ups with mates. I’ve just jumped up into cat B which has been a huge step up. Legs currently wrecked after trying to cling on last night.

I'm in CatA at the moment. Not a particularly strong cyclist but by Christ I'm stubborn. :)

Fair play bashing away in Cat A. That’s the eventual aim as the fitness returns after a few years where the kids took priority!

You know, when I initially posted that I saw the double post and thought 'oh I should delete that'. Obviously the body didn't enact what the brain had commanded. Time for a lie down (or two).

TBH I just go where I'm told (by my cycle group).

Other times I just opt for an hour's fast and flat round the Volcano. :mrgreen:

7 miles run last night and then another 3 this morning. All very slow but the first time I’ve run as far as 7 miles in years so happy with that. Have not managed yesterday or today’s abs and squats yet but if my legs let me I will do double later on today.

Yes, usually with pointed sticks and 10 foot poles. The occasional flaming brand too.
