Shops in Germany generally still have half day closing on Saturdays.

When you can remember everyone having a black and white TV.

When you realise that you've been working for more years than some of your colleagues have been alive.

When all shops (except one or two corner shops) were closed on Sundays.



Or is it just me...........................................?

And you can remember half day closing on Thursdays.

Calf Muscle tear - anyone had this 4 weeks away from marathon

Posted: 21/03/2014 at 18:35

+1 for all those suggesting you don't attempt to run again until completely healed, and then keep the mileage low.

I have a similar injury at the moment - I rested for 10 days; the calf felt absolutely fine after just 7, but on my first run out it popped again after only a mile.

I'm now giving it another 10 days to 2 weeks before running on it again.

Better to get to the start line, if a little less prepared than you'd like, than be out injured all together.

Best of luck!



ponytail hats

I also have a Nike beanie with a hole for ponytail.

It was a christmas present a couple of years ago, so no idea where it was bought from, but google turns up a few options.

Do you love pink running kit?

Posted: 24/02/2014 at 17:54

I think I have just one pink top.

The rest of my kit is mostly black running shorts or tights, and tops in various colours - black, orange, green, read, blue, fluro yellow... All from women's ranges, so I've never felt constrained to pink.

Maybe it depends what ranges you buy from; mine tend to be Nike or Adidas but, as it happens, my one pink top is New Balance.

Running at 'ridiculous' times of night

Posted: 06/02/2014 at 17:08

I often run very late, for the same kind of reasons as you Nell3 - Quite common for me to run in the evenings at 9.30 or so.

And next week I'll be in America with work... 'tummy troubles' (if you know what I mean), make it difficult to run early morning before my meetings; then in the evenings I'll have to go and eat with colleagues, meaning I can't get my run in early in the evening as I'd prefer... so I expect to be running at 10pm or later. My body clock will be all over the place!

I've just had a sandwich for lunch

Slightly late lunch for me... Heinz tomato soup and a crusty roll.

The bowl is still on my desk, I probably should take it to the dishwasher in a moment.
