It also depends on whether he wears the optimal kit for a fast time. Yellow vest, red shoes, and rather too short shorts with a high side split . 23.05

Hey! Nothing wrong with too-short shorts with a side-split. Except if it's windy.

I saw an old guy's arse at the race I was at due to the wind flapping away his modesty, it's haunted me since.

"Haunt: To inhabit, visit, or appear to in the form of a ghost or other supernatural being."

 

You're being followed around by the ghost of an old guys arse?

23/05/2013 at 21:43

yes

Will you be wearing them to the 5 miler, literatin? 

Might ease the annoyance of a breezy run...

...sorry.

Well, if you do get to see my arse, that'll mean I'm beating you.

23/05/2013 at 22:15

Having had a quick squint at the Forest Rec Parkrun times after SR's comments, then I'm pretty sure you'll be beating me anyway if I've not got my DF3 skills wrapped round my neck! 

Then again, if it's a nice arse it might just help drag me round to a decent time. 

23/05/2013 at 22:17

Great. Now if you don't get a decent time, I'll be paranoid it's because I've got a rubbish arse. 

23/05/2013 at 22:20

Nah, it'll definitely be because I'm not all that, and couldn't keep up!

Just hope it's not too nesh on Saturday

23/05/2013 at 22:54

Forecast for our neck of the woods at least is good for the weekend. Dreadful tomorrow, but wind and rain dropping out overnight into Saturday which looks quite pleasant for a change.

Parkrun and cricket double for me on Saturday - will be nice not to be perished in the field for the first time this season!

Sussex Runner are you trying to sound like an East Midlands Runner? I think nesh is for people, not the weather in general, i.e. if I were nesh and it was cold I wouldn't wear the shorts. But I've decided against the parkrun anyway because of the 5 mile race on Wednesday.

23/05/2013 at 23:04

Fair point, but hope SR doesn't get mardy at your pedantry! 

24/05/2013 at 04:54

EssexLion, that is interesting as I have done only one parkrun in 22.15, also off the back of 2 months training. Please post your race results so I can compare my (hopefully improving) times with you.At the moment I can only dream about attaining the type of times that others like Joseph Preston are targeting.Still never say never.

24/05/2013 at 08:28

Why don't you ask people who know better then you literatin, whether you can say "it's nesh" Think you will find you are wrong.

24/05/2013 at 08:32

My in-laws are from Sheffield and they say "nesh".  Literatin is right, it's used for people who can't stand a bit of cold, not the cold itself.

Joseph is a prime example actually - too nesh to get off the treadmill

24/05/2013 at 08:41

I'm from Nottingham and would only use 'nesh' to describe someone who felt the cold or who was susceptible to the cold.

However, when someone says 'it's nesh' to describe the weather I do understand what they mean but would never use it me'sen.

24/05/2013 at 08:49

Yeah, Sussex Runner, why don't we ask Screamapillar and Tommy2D who's wrong? Oh, looks like it was you.
