Kids sport

generally it is age and child dependent, but it's a fact that children are geared far more towards aerobic activity rather than anaerobic.
That said anything that enhances their co-ordination, speed and strength will stand them in good stead as they get older.
I coach U11s at our club, and the common theme from those that seem more tired towards the end are the ones that have had an afternoon of PE or played football/netball.
My youngest (now 13) used to be able to swim for 2 hours, land train (gym) for an hour and then go run the cross country, but now she chooses one or the other, so I'd suggest it means getting/training smarter as you get older.

A few of you picked up on the veiled reference to cake yesterday, which indeed coincided with the date of my birth, some 40- mumble, mumble years ago (clue England won a football cup)
In the end I settled for sticky toffee pudding. After all I don't know how long I'll still have my own teeth and be able to handle toffee...

Betfair only paid out on the sportsbook, but the exchange still going
( 9/2 on 'yes' )

Regardless of the outcome, Scotland will be a divided nation for a long while yet.

Lyric - yes
Good sessions going on, Tine, Don and Blisters with the rubber ring
I too took in some hills at the club session, 12x450m each loop containing 3xshort hill bursts (aka the bank behind the rugby posts). It seems another year older hasn't slowed me down just yet.
what - 5 or 6 easy
why - recovery
last rest - 11 days
last hard - yesterday

be back later

Running holidays - would you?

Posted: 16/09/2014 at 14:04

Depends if you have a spouse/partner and /or children.

We choose our family holidays on where we all want to go, although I always take running kit with me, it's a great way to explore.
Picking a holiday for the sole purpose of running is OK if you have a like minded partner, or if you holiday away from the family.
Dragging them along so you can run seems (to me) very selfish.

Do you run park run every week and is this your sole target race?
If you're running 40mpw, then some of that should be race specific, so that you could easily take ca 30s-1min off your park run with some sensible training.
See too often times plateau in park run, because it is done every week, and not 'raced' say monthly.

I liked the new style flag with the black and yellow of St David.
Personally I couldn't see how it was fascist.

Bos - "Those decisions which helped kill manufacturing, and laid the ground for the primacy of a finance industry, might not having been in Scotland's best interest."
Possibly not, but outside of London and the South East, Scotland has been the most prosperous region of the UK since the start of the last recession. This isn't uniquely down to finance: chemicals and science now flourish in Scotland.
Areas of the NE and NW of England have struggled far more than Scotland.
The offset is that Scotland has had a larger budget deficit (per capita) than the rest of the UK, which I understand would fall outside EU guidelines if they wish to adopt the euro.

Few more observations
Whether yes or no, a sizeable proportion of Scots have shown themselves to be venomously anti-english, which I find a little bit disturbing.
No party that I could vote for in the last election had granting Scotland more autonomy in their manifesto. So in the event of a 'no' vote, why should the coalition grant Scotland more spending powers without the same applied to England, Wales and NI.
The SNP/yes lobby are to campaign at polling stations on voting day. That smacks to me of intimidation, not democracy.
