Saving money!

Reasons to do it, reasons why you won't/can't.

Sorry about the injury Johnas, the damn things always seem to appear when we are at our best.

Much better today. That was close. Another couple of easy days and I might have enough confidence to do a session.

After months of no mishaps its a bit off putting to 'not recover' from a run. At least I can pin point the culprit. It was a 12 mile road run which 'dried' me out too much.

Can't handle that kind of damage anymore. From my diaries of around 1989 I'd logged 16 and 17 mile road runs in the heat, at pace (well effort) on not much more than a pint. The next day was a nine mile tempo run. No problem.

Indeed Dean. And a belated congratulations on becoming the second fastest 1500m runner over the age of 40 in Britain today.

Just thought I'd mention that.

If you want to punch the cornflakes and chocolate milk in other threads, that's fine. Here isn't about willy waving in running or anything else, and never has been.

It's about opinion because it's your opinion. Don't try and feather your nest because someone 'fast' posted that you know.  Here is a respite from that shit.

PP. Not me. It was an incident at the Saracens Rugby Club in Coventry. The victim never lived it down. The nude was pestered by 'the entertainment'.

Shame.  I was really hoping someone would actually challenge me.

Challenge you to what? Fd.

Yes, I can just imagine the headlines surrounding your victory concerning this challenge. 'Postman's great feat'.

Sorry about the confusion with the mile time Matt but whenever I've been reading a post which finishes, 'but hey ho'. It's never been anything good. Its a term of resignation.

I've developed a sore throat which may also explain the mystery aches and pains. Needless to say, these symptoms have only appeared since I entered a race.

If you (men only here) really want to embarrass an aggressor who's basically showing off in front of their mates, sneak off, remove all your kit, return and wrestle the guy to the floor while stark bollock naked.

Faithsdaddy, i mean no disrespect, but you come across as someone who has limited/no power or influence and is fighting the system looking for every slight "win" or sneaky way past the bosses/hierachy.    If your way is so "wise" how come you only ended up as a postman?

Sometimes there are things you think but dare not post and then along comes someone who does it for you.

Goddamit! I'm going to take up 800m & 1500m running because of this.

I have also started drincking erly todat twoo.
