List the most stupid training things you have tried
I have been running for three years, and in that period have tried some stupid training ideas, thought I'd list the top three, to see if I am the only one:
1. Made my own recovery drink using raw eggs. Spent a long time with my head in the toilet.
2. Iced bath. Might work but something you will only try the once.
3. Running backwards off road. Almost broke my neck.
Is it just me. Come on fess up!!!
Haha, I'll steer clear of number 3, I think. DEFINITELY not worth it.
I once ran a mile quite fast on my tiptoes (I thought it would strengthen my calves) - put me out of running for a few weeks with an ankle injury....
lol see-tee and sprint!!
I don't think i've done something stupid but i'm often caught badly breathlessley singing as i run along by pedestrians or cyclists!!
I look forward to an ice bath after my long runs
Haha farting when someones behind, done that a few times,more power
I think the only embarrassing thing that's happened to me was a while ago. I was running towards the sun and couldn't see much and I decided to put(what's left of them)boobs back into place, didn't think there was anyone around but I saw a male runner approaching, I know he must have known what I was doing from the arm movements.opps
I ran into a Llama (yes you did read it right) while running through Mudchute park on the Isle of Dogs i ran through the childrens zoo, in my own little world turned a corner and ran head first into a big smelly llama that was being taken out by it's keeper. I ended up on my arse, the keeper wet herself laughing and the llama did not look amused.
If i ever get a job as an after dinner speaker that the first story i will tell
Persuaded to go training in the Kalahari desert by a psychotic New Zealander when lions were
present was'nt a great idea....Scared the crap out of our guide,who had to come after us in the truck
complete with loaded rifle!!

Why did it have disinfectant on it?? Were you extra smelly?
Think it was meant to be refreshing when you sponged it over yourself...

after a call of nature about 2 miles into a run I used stinging nettles by accident as it was dark - thinking they were leaves ......
