Things you want to say but can't

Look you silly cow. You have never dealt with this situation before so you have no idea what you are talking about. You don't have the intelligence to even approach sorting it out and frankly, it isn't really any of your business anyway so shut up and take your whining bullshit elsewhere.

Sober for October my arse.

If going without alcohol for 4 weeks is a challenge you need a doctor not sponsorship.

Taking a break from alcohol if you drink too much of it is a good idea, but expecting to be sponsored for it?! What are you going to do next, stop shaving your upper lip and expect money for that too?

Do you really think it's a good idea to tell someone with severe depression that all of their medication is bad for them and they should stop taking it? Are you that f***ing stupid?!

Is it too much to ask that everybody (and I mean everybody) fuck off and leave me alone? I am certain I go through life not constantly asking things of others, hassling them about petty shit, moaning about everything all the time, yet this is all I seem to hear. Please, I just want a quiet fucking life! I'll sort my shit out, you all sort out yours.

I get it, you don't like football and you don't like the amount of football that's been on TV for the last few weeks.

There are also plenty of things on TV I don't like, which is why I rarely watch it - unless there's an international football tournament on, which I do like and I actually get a huge amount of enjoyment from following. So, being as it's only a few weeks every couple of years, how about you stop whingeing and take the opportunity to get off your arse and do something else for a change?

Do you prefer to plan your routes or are you more spontaneous?

I'm very dull when it comes to routes as I have my tried and tested ones that I rarely deviate from. I'm lucky in that I have a nice, scenic, quiet, figure of eight loop starting from my house that I run on all the time. Once round the bottom loop is four miles, once round the whole thing (not the middle bit) is six miles. If I loop across the middle bit and do the figure of eight, it's (pleasingly) eight miles. Doing two laps of the top loop gives me ten miles. That's almost all of the road running I ever do and it means I don't have to think about where I'm going at all, I can just enjoy the scenery (it was absolutely beautiful on my early Sunday morning six miler) or concentrate on my pace.

Bristol to Bath Marathon 2015

I'm almost certainly not doing this one now, thanks to being too busy to train properly. I'm entered in the bristol half on Sunday, which was for training but I was planning to go all out. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to pull out of the half too as I just wasn't getting out for any decent runs but now, I think I'm going to do the half and see how it goes. I still very much doubt I'll do B2B as I can't see when I'll get any long runs in beforehand but, you never know. If I do it, it will be just with the aim of finishing.

Hope everyone elses training has been better. Enjoy the half on Sunday.

Arm warmers I've never really understood. What's the benefit over a long sleeve top?

Run a thousand miles in 2015

Haven't posted here in a while as the mileage has slowed down considerably since I did my ultra. Am now back in training for a marathon though, so things are picking up again. I'm currently on 976 miles for the year, so should get over the 1000 miles mark some time next week.

I tend to wear mine more for recovery than during a run. I'll only wear them on a really long run (over marathon distance) and found them helpful on a 100k ultra. I've seen some people wearing them for a 5k, which seems a little unnecessary.
