Wonderful words that aren't used enough

It's probably not actually a real word but isn't it just great.

Its all Kicking off in Gloucestershire!

You don't know the half of it. We have even more fascinating stuff going on here - try this one from my local rag:




My Last Run

Posted: 05/05/2013 at 16:27

Bristol 10K this morning. Not done much recently mostly down to a new job but also down to laziness. The 10K hurt a bit but I still clocked a respectable time. Perhaps with a little effort I might break the magic 50 minute barrier next time.

Disgraceful... but then the sort of idiots that set off bombs are sick individuals anyway.

It has made me think twice about going to the VLM this weekend.

On The Wagon For January

Posted: 10/01/2013 at 17:13

I fell off the wagon last night. I had two sneaky pints but only because beer's cheaper than soft drinks in my local (honest)

Still on the wagon?

The highest chance of me falling off the wagon is tonight. A village get together followed by a night in the pub - I can't see me buying any of their over priced soft drinks any more.

On The Wagon For January

I am still hungover from New Year's Eve! I have massively over-indulged in alcohol this Christmas and my half marathon training plan has gone completely to pot as a result. I will add my name to the list and hope that 9 weeks of sensible training will be enough.

My Last Run

9 miles this afternoon. Meant to do 5 but sometimes it just doesn't work out that way. Haven't been that far for a while and it hurt a bit towards the end. Got soaked to the skin too.

Obesity in the 70s

Posted: 17/12/2012 at 11:19

While the abundance of food and the quality of what is available is clearly a major factor in al this, there are several other factors which have combined to create a nation of fatties. In the 70s car use was very low compared to now and far more people walked or cycled around or used public transport (which involves a dgree of walking). Kids walked or cycled to school - they don't often now, even when the school is only 5 minutes walk away. We have out of town supermarkets which you have to drive to. We also now have 50+ channels on TV which are available 24 hours a day, the internet and endless other reasons to sit on our arses rather than go out for a walk, run or play some sport. And finally, being a lardarse is now much more acceptable.

My Last Run

A very disappointing mile and a half this morning. I spent the night in Bournemouth and thought it would be nice to run along the seafront. Heavy rain and strong biting wind changed my mind after a few hundred yards and I came back via the park and gave up. One day I will get to run by the sea but it won't be today.
