i think his character died in soap land ... and being soap land, when I say died - he was murdered by any of the other characters but were not sure who ?

not that I care at all. but OH cares that I dont so I do. ( now )


their is a aquathon in burntwood on the 18th nov. and someone mentioned that their is some duathlons in surrey. ( wherever that is )

murder? sounds grisly. my turbo is set up pointing at the telebox but even that hasn't enticed me to soapland yet...

19/10/2012 at 21:03

My turbo is set up infront of the TV I dont watch any soaps ever though or worse still reality TV god forbid!

I stick mtv on really really loud and find an hour can go really fast

Uh oh Sgt. I wondered how long the support and enthusiasm might last.
This seems to be the first test of resolve and commitment.

I have the first season of Dexter to get through... Just need a turbo now!

Got my run in last nite.  didnt feel good. 34.45 for 5k but it was hard work - couldnt get a rythm going. 

need to drop a bike session today and run tomorrow before a day off...

a turbo infront of the tv - i suspect that might be a akin to bringing home a couple of open minded girlfriends at tea time. 

my turbo is set up in the conservatory - about as far away from them as possible.

Mmm wonders how I can get an invite o Sgt's place for tea
20/10/2012 at 14:36
Lol dave.

Got the bike session in! Has anyone come across spinnervals? Similar to sufferfest maybe?

Just wondering how fit i need to be before trying out such motivation...

Long run tomorrow.....
22/10/2012 at 00:02
Long run done. Rest tomorrow
22/10/2012 at 08:08
Sounds good, never used spinnervals or sufferfest, so can't help

I have a couple of the tacx DVDs that I sometimes watch

Cameron killed Carl but right beforehand he was given a good pasting by his brother Jimmy and then belted rounfd the head by his ex Chastity. So viewers know whodunit but are going to have to sit through weeks of wrongful arrests, court cases, innocent actors going to jail and loads of anguished soapy wailing. And you can now chat to your other half about it and pretend you actually give a toss. LOL!

of to London tomorrow... 2 days inthe city. oh joy. 

No Bike   ( gym bikes are pony, im not joining a national gym chain for one night only, im not setting up a turbo inthe car park of a london hotel - will have to pull a bike session forward to tonight, a nice little 60 min turbo with a couple of surges...

Lots of treadmill Running   ( as im time squeezed between meetings, travelling, entertaining customers and attending meetings. ) pre breakfast pre dinner hour sessions. should get 2 lots of 4.5 miles in with showers and what not.

will have to placate OH on return so no session thursday nite. - hence important to get the breakfast running in....slip the wednesday brick to friday and back to long sessions at the weekend.

job planned, juggle - juggle

swimming is proving to be a pain in the arse - ill have to get one of those trainer pools installed - just dont tell the OH how much they cost ......

not finding a london thread. ill be near euston, so perhaps a gentle jog up toregents park and back.

which way is gangland these days?

23/10/2012 at 16:48
My sprog 4 is in Borough so I'd avoid that neck of town !

Super. No gym so options are do bugger all or run outside. OUTSIDE ? wtf



I went for  a run outside - 4 miles, 45 mins, bloody roadworks, pedestrains, white vans, buses, red lights - could have been faster. really good fun though.

running outside. who would a thought that would work....

feet hurt now, so Im getting the message that new shoes are required.

same again in the morning before breakfast..

what larks. i

is anybody listening ? a fat bloke just ran around london and nobody died/laughed

24/10/2012 at 18:56

Scary.....  I've just run outside as well, although Cheshire is slightly less scary than Lahndan

Hopefully you have just discovered something. You were seen by several people, and various thoughts went through their minds, sometimes this depended on what type of person they were themselves, but this rarely reflects the exterior shape that they exhibit. Here are a few of their thoughts:
- Look at that big guy, he's got real bottle to make an effort to get some fitness kicked in. I wish I had that motivation.
- Look at that big guy, he's putting the effort in. I'm as skinny as a rake but couldn't run for the bus.
- Look at that guy sweating away. I did 8 miles earlier and didn't break sweat. He's getting much more out of his session than I did, next time I'll have to work harder.
- Oh look, another runner. That guy deserves respect, he's making a serious effort. After all, only hard cases go out in this crappy weather.

Every single person that saw you working out deserved to give you respect. In fact, over the past 10 years I have only had one category of person who has not intuitively given respect. Even they have come round within a minute or so. These are the ones I like to have fun with. The teens. The ones who jog alongside or try to outsprint. Don't try to match their pace, just keep going and ask how far they would like to accompany you. Just a kilometre? The longest I've had stick is about 100m. It's usually when I mumble something about 10 miles done, 5 miles to go...

Many Thanks Blisters. Thats a perspective that hadnt occured. Something to dwell on next summer when everything hurts and their is still miles to go.

I might have overcooked it a little after doing back to back runs. ( regents park was nice at oh my god oclock - but in hindsight, perhaps rather longer to run to/around/back than I had planned )

now it aches all over, ive a couple of loverly blisters on the balls of my feet. ( either the trainers are in need of replacement or my running gate changed or running on pavement is tougher than a treadmill or all three )

ready for a bit of bike tonight and praying I can run long and gentle tomorrow.
