Just wanted to say that I miss my small podge now that it's cold! It used to keep me warm and I never really felt the cold.

Usually at this time of year I would be about a stone heavier but since I started running, obviously not this year. As a result I think it's efin freezing!

I went out for a run last night (-3 ish)wearing more than I would have done to go for a walk before, great run though!!

Anybody else feel the same?? Any nuggets of wisdom to keep slim people from feeling downright icy and how exactly do you measure % body fat?

You do realise dont you CN that half the forum now hates you.

Its taken me months to to get to that stage. Good work fella!
08/01/2003 at 14:49
Yeah CN do what I do, keep training but drink heavily as well...hey presto your cosy little warmer will be back v-soon.

What do you mean half Chimp?

CN, if you weren't overweight before make sure you're getting enough carbs in otherwise soon you'll start getting tired as well as cold.

Well Chimp, someone had to take the pressure off you and I am used to it.

Hang on, that's obviously now the people who percieve that they need to lose weight, (but not necessarily) and the anti smokers from my last thread. It must be 2/3rds of the forum by now!

(Keeps head down for rest of the day, only daring to peep into non contentious forums under cover of darkness)

Just for the record CN my comment was directed at Chimp not you.

CN, go and call Edinburgh a provincial backwater on Events (Edinburgh Marathon).

That makes'em laugh, it really does!

And I dissed the North (all of it) the other day and even people I thought were my friends were giving me a rough time!

What comment's that Glenn?

"What do you mean half Chimp"

Was that aimed at me then? Charmed I'm sure!

Well, I have to say that at a respectible 14 stone and 3 pounds, the cold hasn't really affected me at all. It was a bit of a shock finding myself at this weight... I guess it was that 3 month training break. Here I go on the mission to lose the excess 2 stone...
08/01/2003 at 15:13
See! Now Chimp hates me too!
08/01/2003 at 15:14
Obviously took me too long to respond, damn those tricky work related interuptions.

Thanks for the support Glenn, no wish to diss the North at present Chimp. I've never been much overweight, (oops that's really torn it!!!!)

Still consuming upwards of 20 pints per week, should this be increased and factored into my training programme, ( well if i had one)?

Suspect you need to ensure you always have that crucual kebab after the beer CN.
08/01/2003 at 15:31
Is that like one of your blood doners Glenn?
08/01/2003 at 15:32
Hey Glenn we were only teasing, we didn't really take offense to the comment where you TOTALY SLAGGED OFF ANY WHERE BETWEEN WATFORD AND ....was it whitby?

OOops sorry to remind all the northerners of that one.

Now people can hate CN, Chimp and Glenn....

BBB, I'm hurt. How narrow minded do you think I am? It was Huntingdon, not Watford.
08/01/2003 at 15:49
I didn't want to be hated, i just wanted to be warm and loved, sob, sob! Now everyone in the north will hate me cos I'm in the same thread as Glenn. No offence!

Creeps away all miserable.
08/01/2003 at 15:51
Well that's that thread killed off. Another productive day's work.
08/01/2003 at 16:10
I've always really felt the cold (still love it though) because I've always been slim. The solution is simple: heat your house adequately, and wear wool!!! Yes, when I spent last New Year's in Norway with my b/f's family, his mother was always loading heavy woollen jumpers on me. That worked!!

Oh yes, and drink hot drinks, that helps too.

So the thread didn't die, well done for a useful suggestion Hilde.

I had thought of hibernation but the firm don't think much of the idea.

Will consider the Kebab though and possibly warm beer.
