Still can't understand why so many here avoid Staines like the plague. It's absolutely flat with only nine corners.

Oh yes, the SEAA.

Surprised the results don't come on parchment headed by the date prefix, 'In the year of our Lord'.



How much is staying injury free worth to you?

Safe to say, most runners regard recovery as time wasted in between runs.

The training emphasis is always on the loading aspect, never on how that loading must be aligned with quality recovery.

You can get away with anything so long as you recover.

Just run 8 miles, av pace 7:15, age 55. Easy!

I'll have tomorrow off.

Well another of those unusual continuous runs for me today. 8 miles averaging 7:15.

As for clubs. I haven't paid my subs for Harrow AC this year since at £75 it's too much for what I get out of it.

My other club levies £15.

Other local clubs charge anything up to £200 but at least for that I have the chance to catch 30lb Carp and large Bream.

And other clubs appear to be dedicated to slagging off the policies of other clubs. Forming governments even.

Sounds like one of those races where if you can keep moving, then you can finish. But if you stop for a second or two, then that's your lot. You simply cannot get going again without hitting max on the pain threshold.

I've had a couple of those. I call them show stoppers.

Running and Cellulite?

I bought DermalMD Cellulite Cream for me because I have cellulite on my legs. I have been using this product for the last 3 days and I think I can see a difference already. I like the smell of the cream and it is easy to apply. My legs feel really soft and silky after applying it. I will continue to use this product until all my cellulite goes away. I would definitely recommend it.


Isn't that you who's on Sky channel 901 after mid-night .

So I've heard.

Nice fell race Bus. Sounds like a good one. 

My legs are in bits this morning, calves are on fire, like when I used to run half marathons without training. Hamstring is pretty sore too. All this from a poxy 10k.


Trying to work out if you actually went running today.

Did once claim what might have been this PPI but was informed it wasn't the dodgy version, so nothing. Only £10/ month so not masses.

Wife mentioned a possible mis sell on her pension and the pension provider added £3000 to the fund and then later, they had a re-calculation and added another £4000. Which was nice.

Good race there R.

Had that impossible added on race time myself on occasions.

I reckon it's because the starters are shitting themselves the race clock won't start when they call the 'off'. So they get it (clock) going first then send everyone away.

Then again. Some of the timekeepers are damn near calling it themselves.

At one road relay I purposely started my watch before the incoming runner arrived and didn't stop it until after the outgoing runner was well away.

The timekeepers added seven second to what I had.

Or the 30:03 which was called a 30:30. That's for a '5' on PO10 for ever.

As Ron Hill called back to some timekeepers once, 'Can't you read an ef....ing watch?'

Sorry about the H, string. Word about real muscle tears. Don't be tempted to go digging about for a week. Can't heal properly. Needs time before busting the scar tissue.

Good racing all, and reports.

After my post about not getting ill, I signed off and became by my standards...ill.

So, nothing for two days. Mind you, the way I felt is most likely the way others feel when feeling good.

Gladstone Brooks have garnered themselves a handy £20,000,000 per annum doing for people what the same people could do for themselves.

The gravy train is hitting the ppi buffers soon. They must be crapping themselves.
