Your weekday 'magazine' programme from Worcsetershire
I've been Thunder Running this weekend. I thought it would be easier doing 3*10k in 24hrs than in 12hrs like at the lightning... I was wrong. It was a great weekend away though with 2500 other like minded nutters running through forests at 4am with just a headtorch to stop you running into a tree. We came 33 out of 188 mixed teams of 6+.
WoW sounds like fun Ant.
I Marshalled at Leeds Xpress Sprint Triathlon Sunday, held in a very nice Grammer School, very nice indeed.!! Drive back was a bit dicy over the M621/M62. I was trying to focus on traffic, yet still get into a comfortable position with a back that wasn't being too nice to me. Once home, afew more painkillers downed, i missed the Olympic Swim Races as I fell asleep...grrrrrrrr!!
Just popping in to turn the lights off
Hope everyone is enjoying the Olympics.
Bloody hell Ant...its dark in here....was pooping in to see if anyone had posted anything.........lucky i have a torch on my key ring.
Olympics is fab innit!!!!!!!
Suffering from Post Olympic Blues!
However, not long to the Paralympics
HLad is nursing a black eye - that's what comes of doing the high jump indoors onto the sofa - am taking him to athletics tomorrow
Well done anyone who has actually done any sport recently as opposed to watching it! Mr HL has been inspired to go back to Volleyball - found a club in Ross-on-Wye - that's what comes of watching Poland vs Russia I am even contemplating a "return to netball" session!
Evening HL....ditto re Olympics...but the Paralympics will be just as spectacular am sure.
To stop myself feeling guilty about curling up on the sofa to watch everything . I did manage to train....erm a little. But the novelty of watching everything on the big screen in HD got the better of me most of the time.....
I did manage to extract myself from the big screen to go to a BBQ, unfortunately it was on the night Mo Farrow was running 10,000 metres, so spent most of the evening in my friend's lounge. Thankfully I had her son for company so didnt feel to bad that I was not mingling.
Yay well done on Mr HL to being inspired. Hope you do the same with your netball. And lets hope our Olympics inspires alot more round the country to get out and do. Its been an awesome time for GB and Team GB. x
Thanks HL. He is superb and it was brilliant watching him win the 5,000metres.
My training.......mmmmm, I wont give up is all I can say at this moment.
I've won a race... well sort of. Our club has been running a club members only monthly 5k/10k race around the golf course during the summer to encourage more people into doing races. As I'd done 18miles on Sunday I only did the 5k and with none of the fast boys doing it I won.
I'm looking forward to the Paralympics too as I'm going to the Sunday night athletics session.
No, nothing, it's just meant to be a bit of fun.
Hey Well done You..... Its not about Trophies, its about giving you a confidence boost and showing how well you hav improved.. Good result Ant. xx
SOo according to the lastest craze, we should be dancing with our bikes and running backwards. I can see an accident for me waiting to happen.!!!
Will stick to the forward running and trying to *stay on* my bike.
Today I am practicing sprinting whilst indoor painting.
Hanging my washing out inbetween the showers, sprinting to bring it back in before it gets totally soaked...have won both races...sofar.!! I have the painting bug again......
So the football season has started again At least today's game made up for no Olympics to watch.
In the last week I've had plans to get my bike out and go swimming for the first time this year but both have had to be abondoned. The bike because of a broken spoke and the swimming because I'm broken. If I keep this up I might have avoided both for a year soon.
Well avoided, Ant!
Well painted, Lexers (have you got anything left to paint..?)
I am back, having been avoiding the forums while people were appointed to delete spam posts were deleting the wrong things. My protest has probably not been noticed by anyone but me, but I have my principles.
I just thought you were busy . ha ha ha. What's that all been about then? Can't say I look much further than here these days.
So far I've had to can my swim, a night out and park run plus give up on my 14miler after a mile this weekend because of this neck/shoulder pain. I'm not happy... queue 7 dwarves joke.
I've just done the same joke on Farcebook; I have mumps...
They appointed four people (the four who reported spam the most) to Spam Wombles; they could delete posts they thought to be spam; turned out that one was autistic and couldn't work out what was spam and what was a joke, so deleted a joke thread.
It's really put me off posting and I'll not post anywhere but here much in future.
Crashie - oh dear!Lexi - you can come round to ours and do all the painting etc. as you must surely have done everything at yours now Ant - sorry but football isn't the same as the Olympics although I appreciate you would have been happy with the weekend's result
I have done gardening 2 days in a row - enough for 2012 I feel.
Hope all are well and happy..... weather is crap and hoiday is nearly over,.... ah well...
