Put-down by wife?

Or is it?

I quite enjoy being beaten by women.

Could be worse. My wife took photos of a complete stranger finishing the Cardiff 10k ("He had the same colour vest on as you"). The only one she got of me was in the funnel at the end, no victorious lap of the stadium.

As someone wo got geaten buy a guy doing a remarkable impression of the hunchback of Notre Dame at windsor with a sideways lollop, i'd say no - don't be offended. I was quite amused when getting left behind on a hill by at least a v70 woman as well!

If the wife runs, you could always take the piss back. don't mention wobbly bottoms though.

You should be offended and have 3 options:

Least harsh: Tell her that her bum looks fat
Medium Harsh: Steal her credit cards so she can't go girlie shopping
Most Harsh: Threaten her with divorce

By the way I am not married. Did you guess?

Jeffsy,

If you were married you would know that you had your options in reverse order.

Aaah, that must be why I am single - I always tell birds there bums are big on a first date.

Barkles,

Not good. But I did manage to stay out of the forums for two hours.

Meet me at County Hall tomorrow morning. I'll bring the fake ID for you. You know you want to sit the exam for me don't you. Oh c'mon.

If theres any money in it I'll do it. What subject is it?

PB,
Suggest you invite her along next time. Maybe she'll be more understanding after that.

What you need to do is perfect the art of looking on the brink of total breakdown when you cross the line, thereby appealing to the mother in her. She will immediately tell you how wonderful you are and that you are her absolute hero - she won't even notice the 90 year old veteran who came prancing in just in front of you.

There may even be a hot bath and a leg massage in it for you!

All I've ever got for that tactic is a "serves you right you stupid b@stard".

We got divorced a few years back...

Just remind her of all the ironing you do. She'll remember why she loves you...

I tried to explain to the wife how intervals are good for you. You run 1/2 mile at 6.30 min pace then jog for 1 min at 11 min pace repeat for 8 or 9 times and then jog slowly for 10 mins to cool down, all this is preceded by a 10 min jog to warm up, this would be a hard session, for me anyway. She looked at me with a patronising smile, only wives can do this, and said "I don't have a clue what you are talking about" turned round and carried on with the weeding.
Now I just tell her I will be out for an hour, " hours or whatever. They just don't understand the fine art that is training.

Birds only understand about shopping, sales and knitting. They are always right, according to them, and the only way to explain the fine art of training to them is to put it in a context they can relate to, such as:

'I ran at 6-30 pace from Dorothy Perkins to Monsoon in order to catch the last of the sales. I then walked around the underwear department for 10 minutes before taking on much needed refreshment at Starbucks. This set me up nicely for a 400m sprint to the Station where I was able to catch the 5.20pm home'.

You do realise that other people can read what you're writing and that your real name is on your details? :-)
09/10/2002 at 08:44
Of course, isn't that the point?

Guys, You don't have a monopoly on put-downs from your other halves. My hubbie went to great pains to point out that he'd driven 300 miles to Newcastle just so I could run 13 of them! Mind you, he made sure he was at the finish waiting for me after I told him I got chatted up at the finish of last year's GNR. :-)
