You know you are old when ....

people born the day i left school have been legally allowed to drink for some time. 

if Marty McFly went back in time today, the same amount as he did in the 1st movie (1985 - 1955) it would only be 1984 when he got there... i'd be 6


Rain Running

depends on the temperature, the more you wear, the wetter it gets and the wetter you stay (and heavier) your skin is waterproof, just get a buff for your head and some gloves to keep your didgits from going numb,

How long does a running watch last you?

i have had a timex ironman for 20 years, works perfectly.

My garmin 305 was bought in 2008 and is still functioning perfectly, although i only use it occasionally these days as i upgraded to a 910, again, no issues, 2 years of use including a lot of water, diving and open water swimming too.

How can I run with an eye that won't close/blink

Posted: 10/11/2014 at 07:58

Not the same thing but i once had to live with just 1 eye for 2 weeks after a stone chip off a car hit me in the eye whilst cycling and damaged my eye ball, (never riden without glasses since) and i ran with an eye patch, and i was shocked at how hard it is, i never got used to the lack of depth perception in those 2 weeks, i miss judged curbs and corners and everything like that. 

I know it's boring, but have you considered a treadmill just for the time you are recovering?

All things Christmas (sorry, but I'm feeling festive)

I always run on Xmas day, the roads are quiet and it's nice, My parents house is just shy of 12 miles from me, so I run to theirs for xmas dinner, the rest of my family go in the car.

Where can I find men's running bottoms with key pocket?

Strangest Prize/Memento you've got from race running

Posted: 09/10/2014 at 09:36

i race in sweden every year in a small city local 10k (my friend lives there) and the race is sponsored by local businesses, they allocate a prize to a random finish position, so you have no way of knowing if you won one, 1st place might just get the medal we all get, but 237th might get the brand new Peugeot 307, 

some are coffee, a meal, a night in a hotel, one was a free tshirt printing voucher which is a bit odd.

carry on camping

Funnily enough the only 60s and early 70s comedy that I would watch now is Dads Army, a gentle comedy from a byegone era. But then what are we served up with now - Miranda! 


The more i watch dads army as an adult, the funnier it gets, it really is a very well written and very funny show, i love it.


miranda on the other hand... good grief
