I don't want to foam roller my IT band. It hurts....

How do you cook Basmati Rice?

Posted: 13/04/2015 at 21:25

My method is closest to PhilPub; boil water, cover rice with random amount of water, leave for 5-10 mins. Taste. If done strain, if not leave a bit longer.

I used to regularly run home through central London. Never noticed the pollution. My OH did one run with me and says he couldn't breath because of the traffic fumes. I thought it was psychosomatic but it could be some people are more sensitive to it.

Only time I really noticed pollution was a 20 miles with a large chunk next to a bust A road (70 mph traffic). Found my chest felt tight at the end. Didn't repeat that route!

Have you ever tripped while out running

Posted: 04/04/2015 at 11:57
The question for me is not, do you trip? It's, how often do you trip?!
For me it's about once a year to 18 months. What about others? Hard to know if I'm clumsy or normal!

Run a thousand miles in 2015

Slowly clawing it back, after a poor Feb mileag. March so far has been 80 miles, and I'm on 218 for the year so far.
Need to stick to 20 miles per week and I'll make my 1000! Feeling jealous of all of you who made better starts and have some leeway!

Where would you fit in?

Mid suffolk. Funnily enough that's where my mums family live... Must be genetic!

Out of interest, what were people's score ranges like? My highest was 78% lowest 64%. Seems to me I'd fit in anywhere moderately well. Wondered if that was the same for other people.

Ladies vest top with phone pocket

Personally I'd think it would be uncomfortable in bra.

I have a pouch that goes round my waist. Phone fits in and I can use it whatever I'm wearing. Mines a Spi belt, but there's lots of similar ones around.

Dropping gel wrappers in races - specifically Hull 20

Really bugs me too. Think more races should be up on it and prepared to penalize people for little, but how would it work in practice? Ironman type events may be more able to do so if they already have people on the course looking for drafting.

Run a thousand miles in 2015

Highest weekly mileage of the year (21.5) brings me to 197.5 for 2015. Was hoping to hit 200 miles but will do that this week. My excuse was I got convinced to go dancing on Friday night. Saturday morning, legs felt worse than after a long run!
