Chit chat indeed Pete! It's the attention to such trivia that makes this thread the unmissable daily classic it is

Presumably you are doing lots if calf raises on a step?

Reg - behave 

Happier with my lunchtime run than I thought after looking at the details on Strava. The 6:39 pace overall includes the 1st and last mile at 7:30 pace, and not far off 400ft of hills, but the bit I'm happiest with is a segment which has a 150ft climb over 3/4 mile which I took 10 secs off my previous best for, so feels like a good test of fitness. Still a long way behind Ian K's time on the segment of course

3" shorts in this weather would be about right to protect decency

Dean - you are single handedly keeping the running industry going!

Nice repping going on, and lovely tempo SG!

9 miles for me at lunch, with 7 of them at slightly quicker than MP. Bit slippery in places and feckin knackered now!

I know people have stitched Velcro to the back of their shorts and then put some on the gels with double sided sticky tape. Other safety pin them on, but I'd think that could be fiddly to get them off at race pace!

Double 6 today. Lace broke first thing, so had to run in thick mud in brand new shoes - that's annoying! Legs actually felt OK for once!

Don't worry Dachs, Mrs Bus has zero interest in my running life so would never read this thread!

Dean, like cc that pace is unbelievable on xc!

Cc, I wear shorts with a pocket that sits in the small of the back which can,take 3 gels. The Gu ones fit better I find

My Mrs has this issue, which really causes problems in trying to get her out running.

Just ordered a new bike for commuting

One of these - seems a bargain!

Nice XCing Simon and Philip!

Tasty half that Matt, and well done for keeping it in!!! Any idea what is causing the issue?

Not going to pan that joke Simon!

LSR today. Interesting! Heavy rain and cold, so decided to go on tarmac rather than off-road, and tried to use lanes rather than pavements, and so was putting together a new route. Bloody GPS battery died after 5 miles, despite showing almost a full charge beforehand! So, the rest of the run was done with no clear idea of pace or distance (or location!) After running around here for 15 years, its nice to know I can still find some new (very hilly!) bits! Eventually found my way over to Loudwater, then back into High Wycombe, up through the golf course to Penn, then home.

I measured it afterwards as 13.8M with a Marlow Half's worth of hills, which gives 52M for the week. No idea what the pace was though. Reasonably pleased with that as I was lurgied up and didn't run until Wednesday. 

Looks like a new battery or new watch on the cards though as I think the battery is on its way out.
