Andrew - Hi. Sorry to hear you're still struggling to get back from injury properly. And yes, I remember that you were an 'O'. Pal of mine was a schoolmate with Sladey, and I won't bore you and everyone else with the full story of how the heated post-match pitchside debate I had with our former chairman 20 years ago, may or may not have had some bearing on the timing of his removal as Notts manager a day or two later. Any road, I see he lives to fight another day despite last night's draw - and quite right too in this instance. You were much the better side, particularly in the second half. Plenty of honest endeavour from Notts which has been a rarity in recent years, but we still aren't very good, it was pretty stupefying to watch from a home perspective, and with a bit more confidence in front of goal, your confident approach play would have resulted in a comfortable victory. Hope he gets you going again.
Good luck again for later, Pete. Well done for getting some kilometreage under your belt first.
My BMI is 20.6 at my current weight of 11st 2lb. Just lighter than smack in the middle of the 'normal' range. I.E. About as normal as you can get on that measurement, but really rather slim indeed when contrasted with what has become the norm in the increasingly obese society in which we live. I've got no desire to be any lighter than that, but neither have I any desire to be be knocking up towards 14st again - the difference in my feeling of well being is enormous. Bloody brilliant before and after photos of one our club members on the club Facebook page yesterday. He's lost nearly 7 stone in the last 18-20 months or so, and although his progress has stalled a bit since, he bagged himself a 17:48 parkrun back in April, only just over a year after starting out! It's not like he's some sprightly young 20 something either - not sure of his exact age, but he's a V35.
On the comments of others, as I headed out the door from work already changed for the track on Monday night, one of my directors made a comment along the lines of, 'I've not seen legs like that since the chicken...blah, blah, blah.' Water off a duck's back to me, and I laughed along with him, but no doubt if I made an equivalent comment to the miserable, morbidly obese, all-day-long-snack-chomping 20 stone colleague I have the misfortune to sit next to, I'd be hauled over the coals. Meh.
That sounds a bloody good run, Lou. I'm even more confident you've got a big breakthrough round the corner if that felt comfortable.
The walk to and from the football did me some good last night, the legs are feeling fine today and I'm looking forward to getting some easy miles in after work tonight.
