Of course, Hank the Yank claims that the 'right to bear arms' is part of their constitution.

I doubt that the 'arms' mentioned were thought to include 'high powered  assault rifles and machine guns.

Yes, I was wondering where that thread had got to.

Strange there being a list of abstract pseudonyms calling for action and support for another abstract pseudonym.

No real names of people were involved. There were no photos of real people. No addresses of real people were mentioned either. So on that basis, no-one was involved who actually exists in the real world.

The only entities getting upset might actually have been real people, but that's simply a process of logic.

The only bit that matters is the RW 'house rules'. That's real. Its their game and you're only borrowing the ball.

SG, it'll get sorted.  A minor surgery job to remove what was the last major organ to be discovered by medical science.

Meanwhile I'll do my best to resist one of the symptoms associated with the condition. Being a moany old git.

I can comprehend Matt's speed. The day I set my fastest ever 5000m on the track I would have only just held him off over the final 5k of his HM.

Having only jogged 2 miles in five days I went out in the rain only intending to walk/jog a couple of miles. The level of discomfort that has affected my legs for over 3 weeks, eased off enough after 20 minutes for me to stop holding my breath. Managed 6 miles. 

A fastest mile of 8:23 gives you some idea of pace or lack of.

MND is never far from my thoughts as regards charities for illnesses. A friend of mine died from it.

 I was with him the day (looking for a rare bird in Gunnersbury Park) when he started shaking his left arm, due to it 'feeling odd'.

That was the start. He died two years later.

Fantastic results all round guys.

Great HM Matt. Negative splits as well. 

Not doing much training right now as I wait for the tide to turn. 

How many times a week to minimise injury risk

Posted: 25/08/2014 at 08:17

I've run over 100 miles per week at points in time, but from a base of zero; which has happened on a number of occasions, I start by jogging up and down the hallway of the house for a couple of minutes. 

Basically its down to the contrast between what you are going to do and what you are already doing. 

Too many prospective runners go from total inactivity to running without considering they ought to try walking first. 

It might not feel like it, but running puts enormous stress on the body. It needs time to adapt.
