I found Dachs' description of the fish bashing extremely evocative.

I wonder what he would make of battered cod?

Some people just like routine. We can't all be like you Ric, with our lives veering wildly from winning age group prizes, to digging a flowerbed for an elderly neighbour, to cramming record numbers of tuna bagels into your gaping maw, to landing a tench the size of a toddler before lifting it aloft and smashing its head against a withered tree with a mighty blow.

I'm thinking there must be a plate in there somewhere...

Maybe you should track them down and tell them they're doing it all wrong?

Just can't run fast

^ This.

I would advise running outside rather than on a treadmill though, you will be much better prepared if you do.

It's not "twattyness" its just personal preference.

Sounds dull to me but why should anyone care how someone else wants to run or why?

The gist of your post seems to be that you feel pressurised to run faster and you can if you train more.

But it's not complsory, most longer races cater fo runners of all speeds and some runners find they get injured if they try to run too fast or too often. Don't feel it's something you "should" do - it's entirely optional.

Another technique that works: if you know you don't have time to do something don't say you can't. Just says yes, don't do it and then say you didn't have the time.

It shouldn't work - people should respect you for being honest and upfront but they don't.

I don't think people like refusing time off to be honest.

I've been told "no" more than once only to have line managers reconsider later, or at least try to accommodate some of the days I requested.

Not me. My attention might have been drawn to it though.
