Shall we slap her?
Spence, that is - we've already slapped Yums's sister (who should be locked in a room with Spence's sister and Tubs mum)
Bleedin' Nora it was freezing out there today - nothing between Siberia and us so marshalling on an exposed coast for more than 3 hours was not much fun at all - I had 6 layers on the top half + cross country ski salopettes + knee high socks + fur lined boots, scarf, hat, gloves, windproof marshal vest and I still froze..........
However there was plenty nice lycra on show which made it all worth while
I refuse to contemplate what the temp was with the wind chill factor added - I just know that "brass monkeys" probably covers it Still over 100 indivs and teams turned out for 2.25 miles road run / 9 mile off road MTB bike / 4.5 mile XC run and most came back absolutely black from head to toe which is always gratifying
Spence, just dont do it. Easy as Think of us each time you go in to grab a gobfull, if thats not motivation then I dont know what is !Pippi, I have a feeling we may need a bigger room !!
That bike looks a little deflated
it was one of many meldy - also some snapped chains and ruined derailleur but most people took it in good heart - several who had to bail from the bike due to mechanicals took their numbers off and did the run anyway
I see you have perfected the art of uploading as well
Oh I haven't finished yet - why stop at boring your family with photos when you can bore the whole word
3 more to follow including one very cold marshal you might just recognised who of course is only the shape she appears due to the layers of clothing!!
On the other hand I lost 3st 5lb with Slimming World last year.......horses for courses! There again running round a course LIKE a horse would probably lose you some weight and gain you some marathon training too. Willpower is THE best slimming aid but like running sometimes you just need outside help for motivation whatever that may be for you.
(climbs off soapbox, then on again, then off again, then on again, then off again, repeat as necessary)
Yums, sorry to hear that your sister apparently still has behavioural problems. You have done everything possible to hold out the olive branch and you can do no more.
Podds, wow you are a hero! Marshalling is a hero's job anyway but in that cold, wow! The competitors look like they enjoyed it because of the mud rather than despite it.
that looks like a proper race, Podds - did you arrange extra mud just for fun ? And well done you for standing there for so long - watching kiddy poofball for half that time frozzes me to the bone
LOL at your soap box and hoss work out, FP SW certainly worked for you but as others have said, its about what works for each person - wasn't it Paul Mc that suggested people imagine awful things in their trigger foods - like pubic hair and bogeys - obviously they are the awful things not the trigger foods....I hope
Signs of snow falling here but just dandruff at the moment. WAISt well and safely my lovvies
Well done Podds.
I like the idea of using the soapbox as a step aerobics work out.
If I remember correctly, Paul McKenna's 3 rules are
Only eat when you're hungryEat really slowlyStop eating when you're full.
Simple but effective.
Add to that - eat the right sort of healthy food and step away from the cake - and you're on your way.
