Talkback: Health: Perfect protein for runners

Posted: 24/11/2014 at 20:02

Nope, I'm definitely old

I use metric if I'm doing DIY as it saves fussing about 1/16ths of an inch; feet are good for height (6' is tall, so it's a natural measure), fahrenheit for hot temperatures (75 is warm, 80 is hot) but celsius for cold (0 is freezing)

I visualise the size of rooms in feet, object sizes in inches and have to run in miles.

Confused? Yep. Dinosaur? Probably

I'm in the UK and I know my weight in pounds, but would have no idea in Eurofunnies...

I'd've thought stone and lb would be ideal.

And fat slow people in yellow lycra going to Kona and winning races and European Championships'n'stuff. *nods in agreement*

Seriously, it was was it was and "it is what it is" (Rule 4)

If anyone feels the urge to hate, please go and hate something truly detestable.

Nice report

It would be good for it to become a Pirate staple; it's a great event!

I've puked while running, but never had the control to empty my bladder... and I'd always make like a bear if my bowels were likely to let go.

I've acquired a couple of decent injuries and still finished; my last 3 days at Transalp were completed with my ankle strapped rigid at 90 degrees and Challenge Vichy involved slings and stitches (though I still made up one place on the marathon; I'm quite proud of that ) Neither of those was particularly clever, though I'm proud of the medals.
