Over 60s training.

John B - 'Stone the seagull' sounds too energetic unless it means ply it with strong liquor until stoned then that could mean you and not the seagull! As to Freddie and the Dreamers revival I should that's a case of 'dream on' if not downright unpossible. I still think Oldham must be near there and that I'm too young to be allowed in, I'm not even 80 yet.

Wave to the Brighton Rock for me.

John B - I raced indoors this very afternoon - when I got caught out in the garden by a sudden and vicious sleet storm

BTW is Oldham on the Costa Geriatrica?

Not too bad for the first time out after ten days off.

A minute better than the last time out; the one before that was the worst of several.

Colin - It ain't necessarily so. I usually like to get the whole thing sorted out first so I can upload it in one fell swoop. Otherwise having to keep going back to upload more gets a bit tedious. You could call me lazy I suppose, although slow but sure is generally thought to be virtuous. See ya!

Ceal - "good understanding of bodies" eh? Well first of all it must be because I've got one, not in mint condition though, and a great deal of enthusiastic work in the school gym club, the memory of which still hangs about, and the study of simple mechanics from my architectural training, much of which applies to the body. Funnily enough I never thought of art work conveying much understanding of the body, figures are difficult to draw and make look convincing.

I'm envious of John B overtaking seagulls on his bike, I wonder how high he was? Makes me think of Mary Poppins or someone of that ilk

Ceal - Interesting that you're thinking of going back to Pilates you were a great exponent of it when I first came on here. I thought of that as I'm considering taking it up myself; I acquired a book called Pilates for Runners a few years back but never actually used it and I've been thinking of getting it out again and maybe even giving it a go. I'm afraid running is losing its appeal just now and I'm not doing enough even to control my weight satisfactorily.

Colin - glad you liked my website but somewhat surprised too as it needs a lot of tidying up work doing on it now and I find that's rather time consuming.
BTW my take on hills is if it's going up it's hard and if it's going down be careful.

Mick - Does icing also stop cakes from swelling?

Colin - I don't mind at all, I used to run classes in watercolour painting.

"Dreadmill" is dread right. I can never stay on the dreaded thing so now I don't even try.
