Minni v Dubai Dave
thanks for the responses on the roller - usefull, thank you!
a gentle 6 miles for me tonight
2old's flight made the news!
Those who have struggled getting out and about this week due to the weather, spare a thought for the poor Middlesbrough players tonight who are away at Leicester. Stuck in traffic on the tour bus, the match had to be postponed, and it still didn't look like they would make it to the ground!! The hardy souls got off the bus and WALKED the last half a mile to the football ground. Can you imagine, professional athletes having to walk 800m to start work.
I love the quote! "The whip-round certainly happened, I put two quid in. I saw other people throwing in fivers"
How much must people have to weigh to make getting off actually make that much of a difference on an aeroplane? Do they take their bags with them? How much do the food and drinks trolleys weigh? I had 15kg of luggage on my last easyjet flight, that's 1/4 of my bodyweight. Me + luggage is probably still less than a tall, 'portly' chap. As much as £100 pocketed just to get a flight a few hours later would be nice, it's got to be a bit embarrasing to be the one who gets asked to leave the plane as it's too heavy....
I'm under 20 stone I have you know!
i havnt drunk all month and have trained in !one form everyday but 1 yet im just as heavy as i was at christmas!
I is back from the dead - norovirus knocked me for six on Tuesday. Blimey, no hangover can ever be as bad as THAT .Trying my best not to let the JanIcantbelieveImdoingthistastic team down ... managed one paltry mile yesterday and another one today -- that will count as a run I hope. I put on full running gear and I showered and changed after, just like I would after a normal run. Lost 1.5 kg but with that also all my strength, stamina and speed . Firmly back in the slow and shit camp Will be back later
Well done for getting out there Chick
i've bought a turbo trainer. Just done 30 minutes. It's hard work!
Chick - how awful, glad you're feeling better now!
AA - 18 miles on the treadmill, that is dedication pure. I tried a 4 mile run at the gym last month and am ashamed to admit I lasted 2 miles, was too hot running inside and soo bored!
Lol about that Easyjet flight! Seriously Easyjet are a bunch of thieving so and sos - we had to change our flights from New Years as our passports were in the homeoffice and we couldn't fly and it cost us £35 per person per flight to change - a total of £140 to change the dates of a flight! Have vowed never to fly with them again! Ok rant over now
Flagging my run today, as we just have ice outside, no nice fluffy snow and I don't fancy slipping over.... sadly am feeling a little bit glad this week not to be marathon training. I did go out for 3 miles on Wednesday and felt great, that was before the paths got too badly iced up. Oh well, got spin to look forward to tomorrow.
Take care on those long runs guys.
AA - Good effort on the tready. i can empathise see below.
Chick - Well done for getting out so soon after the lurgy but look after youself.
I found Easyjet OK going to Florence(only time i've flown with them) they even checked in a bag free of charge, but I think that's because most people carry bags on and the overheads are rammed.
Checked the conditions out this morning when walking the dog but way too slippy so fortunately gym was open and 18 miles on the tready in 2hours 20, did n't find it too bad, just switch off and don't look at the distance completed until the albums finished on the MP3 player by which time I'm over halfway, last 5 at MP.
If any of you think Easyjet are thieving so and sos don't ever contemplate flying Ryanair!! Actually I fly very frequently on Easyjet and have rarely been late, never cancelled and for under £50 return to Belfast I won't complain.
Our Ultra, meant to be tomorrow, has been cancelled so we got out and did 19 miles in the snow and ice. I would hesitate to say it was a run - more of a combination run / walk / slide and at one point crawl [where I couldn't get any grip at all on a minor road going uphill]. Bliddy cold............................Will try to do more than 11 miles tomorrow so at least overall I will have exceeded the ultra mileage.
Fortunately I don't have access to a treadmill - I just can't bear the heat and stuffiness of running in a gym, even if they do have air con.
