I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
SOLB is pretty awesome isn't she? And so wise!
Without wanting to sound facetious, SOLB has said a lot of great tips and ideas. I find that having a race to aim for, or at least a goal (and then a plan) helps.
Also I've heard being kind to yourself is a good idea (it's not something I do) and crediting yourself for small victories (eg. getting up, getting dressed, getting out, running for a minute etc.).
Hi, my name's Ben and I have an out-y belly button. It felt good saying that, there's not many who know my dark secret!
Liverpool was awesome thanks SOLB! It was a really incredible experience though my running afterwards has dramatically dropped off.
Like you I need a new event to aim for, where are you thinking?
I don't think I can swim to be honest.
Wow, The Terminator looks hardcore! SOLB, I'm well impressed you've done it!
I agree about the spring marathons, they're very inconveniently placed. I wish organisers would consider my schedule before going ahead and planning such events!
SOLB, I have no idea what my hips are doing when I swim! I have no confidence in the water and usually panic, I just don't think I'm a water person.
The Terminator looks tempted, I'll think about it (that usually means I'll forget about it).
No problem Bobby, it's easy to forget that we have more in common with most people than differences (The Dalai Lama says stuff like this more eloquently, I follow him on twitter to get his daily wisdom).
My out-y is all-powerful, but also all-consuming (it likes the cake!)...that's deep for this time in the morning!
It's been that long since I've swam I'm fairly sure my hips don't know either.
I've just been some Dalai Lama tweets, my current favourite: "We tend to forget that despite the superficial differences between us, people are equal in their basic wish for peace and happiness." and "Compassion is a feeling from deep in the heart that you cannot bear someone else's suffering without taking steps to relieve it.".
Actually my out-y is from operations I had when young, though the result is much the same: I love the cake!
How have you been SOLB?
I'm sorry to hear that SOLB! I'm happy to lend a sympathetic ear if you want, but I appreciate I am a stranger and this is a public forum! (I also have an unsympathetic ear, but he's not very nice!)
I'm alright thanks, busy which is always better for me. I need to get my fat-arse running more!
Take care of yourself SOLB,
