Anybody deliberately going about making someone feel worse about themselves is generally bullying. I don't have to say "I'm going to kick your head in" to bully you.

I'm NOT going to kick your head in though, don't worry - I suspect I can't raise my leg that high....

Not read the thread - but I've seen them before like that. Not nice.

hi everyone!

LB - well done on your hm. I HATE cheats, i'd rather come last in a race but do it all otherwise what is the point?

SB - Your training sounds to be doing fine, you'll be a whippet in Florence!!

A big hug for all the poorly children, hoping everything gets back to normal a.s.a.p.

Got up at 3.30 am to go to Rome. 18km with all sorts of obstacles. Quite a few ended up in hospital but apart from bruises and scratches and looking like a battered wife, i'm fine. The first "obstacle" was a net 30cm off the ground and we had to crawl in mud under it. - some women pay a fortune for mud treatments and mine were free!! Then there were rope bridges, walls to climb and I got stuck at the top of a net and was hanging off like a bat upside down! Hope that one hits the cutting floor before I get my dvd!

Hope all the LN runners had a good race.

Enrico, hope you had a good race.

...right so not bullying in this case then...I didn't feel worse about myself at all...better in fact (for good reason)

BBS/LB,

If it's male why waste energy aiming for the head.  I can think of much better places to aim for .

Went to have a look at that thread after your comment earlier and his words were quite unnecessary.

BBS - Gordon Bennett!!!!  No comment....    Yes, it is bullying - cyber bullying.  Agree with LB, bullying doesn't have to be physical, it can be mental, emotional, racial and so forth and doing it via the internet is quite daft on the offender's part because it's proof written in black and white.  You can take a person to Court for bullying you.  Admire you though for firing back as the person deserved nothing less.  Too many people do nothing and walk away "hurt" and kick themselves for not saying anything.  However, if you live in the nice world, then the shock of having something derisory said to you can stun you and make you react a bit like "a hedgehog stuck in the headlights".  Guess some people don't read the line below which I am currently typing that says: "Think before you slam someone." 

Molly - well done on crazy 18k.  Sounds like you really enjoyed it.

BBS - it's still a Masters in something.  Mine will be a BSc in Maths.  Funny what makes us all tick eh?  Flossette's into physics, maths and music - she might end up as a double bass playing scientist.

Has no one texted result in yet, slacking.

Anyway VR 4:41 i think it was, Shades was 4:45 2nd fastest ever and i finished in 4:44:45. 7th fastest for me. Left ITB then right knee issues other than that was 3 mins ahead of 9 min pace thru 9 miles. Although there was a 7:43 first mile for which i'm blaming Santa Baby

Now best get some clothes before dinner

I've only just got the bloody text!

Mummy has just texted in the last ten seconds to say she feels a "bit crocked now"

Can't access my inbox on my phone now so I'm sulking. Elspeth seemed to do bloody well to me, in spite of a cold....

Well done to all!

04/10/2009 at 18:12
Keith - congratulations to all of you - brilliant finishing times.  Ouch on ITB and knee though.  Did Elspeth run? 
04/10/2009 at 18:14
LB - thanks for that.  Glad Elspeth made it too.

Doesn't matter about speed BBS - just flipping get your arse out there and do it!

Keith & Shades.

Well done.

BBS I'm pleased you're back on here. Well done on getting out.

I've done 9 miles today the furthest since April but very slow.

Well done the LN racers 

04/10/2009 at 18:44

Thanks all

Intended to do 20 minutes - great motivation came from Vicki GW on "other" thread who sent me supportive message - anyway, got out there - 33:19:95, 5.6 km, 9:53 pace according to Garmin ;-S only way is up from that = feels great to have done it. Not sure why Garmin is suddenly referring to km - must work out how to fix that?

BBS - woohoo!  Go BBS!!! 

WD - well done on 9 miler, doesn't matter how slow - you did it and that's what counts. 

04/10/2009 at 18:46

congratulations to all LN runners.

Big pat on the back, wish i'd been there!!

BBS,

Well done.

Amazing times racers -well done.

Mr Bump - hope your wound gets better really soon.  Is it still covered, otherwise giving it a little sunshine may help dry it out?

LB - excellent time for your 1/2 marathon.

Flossie - very impressed with your maths degree.  How are you getting to fit everything in?

13 miles for me today, really slow.  Wanted to go further, but didnt as left knee was niggling a bit and having entered 3 races after christmas I dont want to become injured.

Might run/walk Beachy.  Does anyone think that is doable on the longest run of 13 miles.  Ive run 18 in the past but that was 10 months ago, so dont think it counts

04/10/2009 at 19:19
HTF - somehow I'll fit everything in.  Flossette's not got me running so many taxi's for her these days.  Well done on 13 miler for you today.  Ooh, you've only got 3 more weeks until Beachy Head.  Careful with that knee.  Run/walk sounds good, but the others know more about this than me, so I'll let them advise you.
