TUC-led 'Britain Needs a Pay rise' march

Posted: Today at 12:04

some classic and ill informed quotes on their website:
"And if bankers hadn’t crashed the economy"
"One key driver of the economic crash was growing pay inequality"
"Long before our banks went bust people’s wages had stopped growing."

Earphones in races

I've never got the "I only have it so quiet so that I can hear everything around me" line. Prompts the question: why bother then?
On the infrequent occasions I run with the ipod - usually dreadmill - I crank the volume up.

We did have one guy in the past on a similar thread who actually said that his hearing was enhanced by having headphones on as he was more in tune with the background noise. Couldn't make this stuff up.

Earphones in races

""If headphones genuinely endanger others why do race organisers allow folk to wear them and start in them?  Try cycling in a an organised race without a helmet. You just won't get past the start line. Try failing to meet the mimimum time for a stretch on a sportive, you'll get put in the broom wagon. How come running can't do same?

If they don't endanger but inconvenience then surely it has to be a case of live and let live?""

Couple of observations on this:
Why should a helmet be compulsory in a cycle race? Who is endangered by not wearing one?
Should running introduce speed limits? Not pass 2k in a park run within, say 10 minutes, and you have to drop out?

hi all, 
LmH - me? awards? no.
I'm secretary for the road/trail part of the club so I'm responsible for trophies, London marathon places draw and other admin-type stuff. I did think about putting my name on the 'runner of the year' trophy though...
Good evening though, and judging by some comments on f/book this morning quite a few of our lot had more than lemonade.
what - 5m warm up then 4x700s on the track with 500 steady between each. 2 mile c/d.
why - asking myself the same thing after rep 1. Perhaps not a wise move after the guinness...
last hard - today
last rest - 3 weeks

Afternoon all, 
Day off - admin type things to do and club awards night tonight.
What - Admin can wait for 75 minutes though - 9 and a bit miles over the fields & woods.
Legs felt heavy truth be told
why - opportunity is too good to miss
last rest - 20 days, although yesterday was no more than 2 miles around 10min/mile pace
last hard - tuesday

Wabo - Thoughts with Giselle, you and your loved ones.
