We had linipics for Olympics, amlamps for ambulance, chocolan for chocolate and plug for pub when mini me was a young 'un. I still call it the plug years later.

Nipping into the bushes

Oal4n, what if you don't know what caused it? Who says they go behind a bush EVERY time they run? Shit happens, literally. I bet the sun shines constantly, every race is a pb and those judgey pants are pulled right up in your world.

Right, pre run Brad sorted, I'll run to the river, see if there's any fish and then back.

oal4n, it's been said you're not a proper runner unless you've had to nip in the bushes for an emergency Eartha. At Outlaw last year I was full of immodium and my stomach start gurgling away and creating a stream of bubbles behind me, it went away but I'd have walked back to the caravan rather than get my wetty off in T1


I always carry emergency loo roll with me on a run. I've done what Magna Carter hasn't done.... and also had to nip into the bushes one night and got snared by brambles, my legs looked like they'd been ripped to pieces by a shark. On business in Florida once I did the same early one morning in some bushes by a small river, resumed my run on the road above to see a big* alligator in the water about 10 yards from where I'd been.

Had to withdraw, barely run in a month. The crack from dropping a sofa on my leg is still sore, running leaves my whole lower leg swollen and the GP said don't do it. Gutted, proper gutted, was training well and looking forward to putting right last year's efforts.

Conveyancing solicitors in small N Warwickshire towns. If you were any fucking good you'd be doing proper law in the big city.

Popsider, it's not a cube. It's a cuboid. Drives me crazy does that.

Selling Juice Plus? I'm not interested, don't badger me at school, clog up my FB page, email inbox, anything. It's crap, nothing a balanced diet doesn't offer and I'm not interested. Stop it.

My GP repeatedly tells me I'm doing far too much exercise, even when I'm doing 30-35 miles running a week running let alone when I'm doing 12 hrs plus for an Outlaw. Then again he tells me at 80kg and 5ft10 I'm 15-20kg over weight. You'll be fine, knackered but fine. You might well walk most of the run and be bloody knackered, but you'll be fine.

In other news my leg still has a crack in it and I have a removable boot on. Was proper painful after 120km bike on Sunday.

I think the water has to be tested by a microbiologist before OW swimming is permitted, almost certainly before a BTF event, Buddha would know more. I've certaibly never had any problems at Stanton and I've far from a robust stomach. The water at HPP last year didn't taste or smell that clever because of rotting weed but I didn't suffer afterwards. Probably worth covering any cuts especially lower extremities if you are diabetic.
