  lol Silver, I'm not sure it is actually mid life crisis as I'm only 35 so good help us if it isnt!!  I have had a bike for the last 8 years and some of the best mates I have are silver foxs

and Booey! I know where ur coming from but some women get a bit lost in their identity when familys come along and really, they aint hurting anyone with a little bit of body mod! I have to admit to being way over the top on that score..first piercing was about 15yrs ago, most of them have been removed now but the tatts.. they aint going no-where  

hope the hands are sorted out soon, at least it doesnt stop u running

  I managed to get out for a run today, but I've decided I like running b4 10.30 latest mornings.. set off too fast today so found myself walking a couple of times (that will be a re-occuring theme for me always do it!) so I did 3.2 miles in 28mins

Am just showing my age as tats are so fashionable now.  I don't think they look nice on women, infact I don't really like them that much on chaps either

I have my ears pierced, even got a mate to do two more holes either side for me with a pin  when I was very young.....ouch......how the hell did I go through that lol anyway I let them close up  thought about nose but thankfully never did it

Wanted a quick run when I got home but its pitch black ere already  maybe a quick round the streets will have to do

Have a good evening

Boo I do get people sometimes tell me they don't like tatts on women and u know what, everyone is entitled to their opinion! None of my family have any, it's just something I personally like
Hope u enjoy ur run

Rofl Silver, Well! This is the problem, if it isn't that that's made me do all this stuff (running included) then what's next!! Tri's and ultras!!.. Nah, I think I'm much too lazy lol
It was a fast run today! I try to pace myself better than that though cos fast like that means I always end up walking at some point. Can't wait till I've got more consistant miles under the belt and then hopefully I can get my pace up there!
I do have kids yeah, (4) started young too so eldest is 17!! (Maybe that's a good enough reason for it to a) be mid-life and b) be on this thread.. Didn't realise I was too young!) youngest is 4 so now finally past the stage of them being soooo dependant! Does make it easier with leaving her with OH

Tatts.. Full back, 3/4 sleeve (they covered up some small pieces) and there's a couple of others.. Ones a geko in fact! Rofl I would love more but am trying to grow old a bit more 'gracefully' so will keep them out the way

lol I promise to keep the tatt talk to a minimum.. I might be compelled to mention it if I get another though I was trying to think of something witty to get that could be read in a mirror (I work as a barber) but haven't thought of what yet
And yeah the kids have been hard work but fun luckily the two oldest are of an age where as long as they have access to food, showers and electrical points in the house they are happy (even the thirds getting to that point and he's 10 this wk!) lol I have to say the little girl is the most demanding.. But then she would be wouldn't she!!
07/11/2011 at 18:38
Ahhh.. The fabled lay in!!
Very occasionally I manage to guilt the OH and get one but it is rare! Seems they have to get to 16/17 b4 they spend extra time in their beds.. Trouble is that's when u want them getting up

Hi all,

First time I've had chance to look in today. Been very achy all day following yesterdays exertions

Sabbie, well done on the run. Good time that. I am surrounded by Tattoo addicts. My partner has a few  small discreet ones but my step-daughter has loads, one of which goes all down her side. Not got any myself but am tempted to get a Liver Bird. I could suggest a really funny one that my partners friend was considering getting but think I would get banned from the forum

Silver,  wasn't good Saturday, midfield really unbalanced, not looking very positive with Chelsea and Man City next two games. Couldn't even drink to make it better with having the race yesterday

07/11/2011 at 20:17

Yeah, been working, mind you I had a lie in and didn't go in until late due to aches and pains

Didn't realise you had suffered a bout of depression. I went through the same thing two years ago. Had never understood it until it hit me. Mine was mainly brought about by the struggles of trying to keep a failing business afloat. Went onto medication but managed to wean myself off it in a few months(never been comfortable with popping pills) Still have my moments but think the exercise has helped in the last few months.

07/11/2011 at 20:18
Arrgh! Stripes! I wanna know what the funny one is now I think u should get the Liver Bird
I think I read somewhere recently that u should have a real gentle run 2/3 days after a race to get the blood flowing through and wash away the rubbish and it will speed up the recovery is that right? No2 son supported Liverpool for ages but has moved onto the local teams now so he can actually go and watch the matches.. He doesn't seem able to decide between footie or rugby though goes to both!

Silver I reckon a couple more years and u'll be able to doze till 9 at wkends if ur lucky I can get 8/8:30 on a Sunday now on occasions lol
.. Not trying to put u off the motorbike though take it ur dad rode if u went TT so many times as a kid?

Hi Sabbie,

I've heard the phrase 'Recovery Run' but don't actually know what it entails. Suppose I ought to look it up  

Your son has got the right idea! Which team is closest to you? Torquay?

Oh well here goes. The girl in question is a bit crazy and was considering having the phrase 'All You Can Eat A Fiver' tattooed in the vicinity of a certain part of her body. I guess the ban will start very soon

07/11/2011 at 21:01
that's a great one! Definately have to be single to get that or suffer some grilling lol

We're about 5 miles from Exeter so him an his mates get the bus and go to them and the Chiefs for rugby.. I have no idea about footie so have no clue who's the better team between Exeter or Torquay?

I found where I saw the advice, the new runners world mag surprisingly
'ur muscles need between 30-60 hrs to recover from hard effort. Running super slowly and relaxed for one to three days after tough workouts promotes blood flow to ur muscles, which flushes away broken down protiens, delivers new proteins to help rebuild damaged tissue, and carries carbohydrates to replenish depleted stores'

There u go!
07/11/2011 at 22:04
Silver, I'm sorry u have suffered (and u stripes) but happy u did something about it my OH refused to talk about it for years. He had a back issue and to say he got in a funk is an understatement! to make it worse our daughter was 4 months old and as he couldn't work I had to go back to work when she was 10 months it very nearly destroyed us!
It's definitely a big reason for me running, he was really into marshal arts and UFC stuff but he can't do what he wants to do now without putting some effort into getting fit first (I don't mean he wants to fight in UFC rofl but he would like to do mixed martial arts) and I reckon running is a foot in the door for him to get fit again he's joined me a few times but I'm hoping if I stick with it now he'll give it a go
And yes I feel good doing it too, So selfish

Oh, and I sooo can't wait for the TT!! I'll be staying in Douglas too
07/11/2011 at 22:19

.......I got lost.........

I ran a lot!

07/11/2011 at 22:40
Mal the first day I headed out the door running I didn't have a clue where I was going! Hadn't explored the area at all lol but had been told about a quiet road and where it came out
Think I know more than the kids do now

Do u know how far u went or do u have to map it? Actualy one of the blokes who's hair I cut runs and told me it's nice to just run..
I always have a route in mind and know the distance, maybe getting lost is the way forward!
07/11/2011 at 22:53

Thanks Sabbie,

Am going for another trial run with the club tomorrow if I feel up to it so will do it slow and hope that it qualifies as a recovery run.

Exeter are a division above Torquay at the mo, Liverpool played at Exeter in the League Cup earlier in the season but I couldn't go because I was on holiday at the time. Went to the races there once, was a good course and had some excellent beer in the town centre  but the main thing I remember is the bus ride from the town to the course, didn't think the bus would make it up Haldon hill.

Silver, hope you didn't think I was prying over the depression thing, just hit home when I read it having been there myself.

Mal, I like the idea of going out and getting lost, may try it next Sunday, may end up somewhere more exciting

08/11/2011 at 07:42
Hey where did Sabbie go? Her posts have dissappeared too. Maybe the forum police have taken her away. Maybe it was all tat talk!

Hi Mal. Like your teeny post. How come you can catch the moment in a few words when it takes me hundreds!

Club run tonight. It will be cold but I can't wait to get my tights on and get out there.
08/11/2011 at 08:57

Mal - your post cracked me up  love it

Didn't get out last night, hubby had dinner ready when I walked in so that put pay to that  club run tonight

08/11/2011 at 09:02
Silver - did you say you are near Marlow or live there?  There have a santa run there which would be an ideal first race.  They have them all over the country, I am thinking of doing the local one to me which is 5miles I believe, its more fun than elite runners so no pressure
08/11/2011 at 10:15

I’m not far from Marlow Booey but I’m not sure I want to dress up as Santa and run for 5 miles.  Is it compulsory? 

Although I have the white hair already (and prob a white beard if I let it grow) so all I need is the red suit.

I did look at your bookmarks at the weekend but I didn’t see anything close enough to me.  My club has a 10k race coming up soon which I could enter but apparently it’s a difficult one. Info here.


I’ll have a chat about it with the guys tonight.

BTW - do you know where Sabbies posts went – they seem to have disappeared over night.

08/11/2011 at 10:33

Santa suite is not compulsory don't worry, I will defo not be wearing one  I struggle with over heating as it is hehe

I would chat with your chaps tonight about your club race, I always get a tad put off when its a top club organised race as it makes it all sound to serious  just for the elites kinda thing.  Am sure I am just being stupid though hehe

 Sabbies posts are there, or the last one is at 22.40.  I wasn't online so not sure what was posted

08/11/2011 at 10:54

Now that’s weird I can’t see any of Sabbies posts right back through the thread certainly not one at 22.40.

Do you think she’s barred me? Or am I getting paranoid?
