Cold.chills when running

Oh crikey, that's a tricky one.  There MUST be a product out there to solve this issue you're having, surely?

If not, someone could make a small fortune if they could come up with something.

Junk food at races

How about fruit, bananas, oranges, pineapple, dates, figs, various selection of nuts. Cheese, boiled eggs, roasted potatoes. The list could be endless.... It sounds most of you out there are quite happy with the current race food supplies. 


Jeff - what is junk to one person, may not necessarily be junk to the next person.

Fruit, bananas, oranges, pineapple, dates and figs - all loaded with sugar, and 'junk' to me.  I wouldn't thank you for it.  Nor would I want gels or energy drinks.

Others, however, would be made up if all of the above was on offer.

It has been said, but RDs can't please everyone.

Ride 100 after Outlaw

Posted: 05/02/2015 at 12:28

FWIW, I did IMUK last year, and then the following week I did the bike leg at Outlaw.

I did nowt in the 6 days in between and actually had a pretty good ride at Outlaw.

Home training for "non-running" days

There's a great little app I found called "instant fitness" for iphone/ipad.

It cost awhole £0.69, but it has loads of different structured workouts, each no longer than about 15 minutes.  I've recently started doing a few of those while listening to some music on the day that I don't run each week.

I've used it quite a few times now, and haven't done the same workout twice yet, as there are a lot on there.

Can ask for much more for about the price of a mars bar.

Not been to Bolton recently Pudge

the pavements here are muddy and waterlogged 

Thats nothing. I went into Warrington today and the UNDERCOVER car park at Golden Square was absolutely saturated - I'm talking 3 inch deep puddles. How does that even happen?!
