It does seem to be your standards versus everyone else in the thread. Maybe you are too posh for this thread.

May you never get caught short


(Wait till he finds the thread on peeing on the bike deliberately to save time in an IM)


So, er, you only do that during races?

There have been times* when I have not even managed to get round my bog standard 6 mile trot without the need for an investigation of the scenery.

*Many times.

I think you need to review your diet if you struggle to do a 6 mile jog without the need for a sh1t. Why don't you go to the toilet before your run? And I bet you don't clean up after. Quite disgusting and totally unnecessary.

You can't force one out just because you're going for a run. I'm not a "regular" person and can often go days (or a week if away on holiday) without a number 2. All the rocking and popping in the world isn't going to make me plop to order.

Wanna borrow my dog?

When I squat behind bushes my dog eats it - all of it. I'm not sure if I'm happy that I don't have to clean it up, or really, really disgusted that this animal lives with me.

I do believe that it might be the season to hang up the wetsuit.

No more problems.

Pop it on ebay - interesting description.

He's busy. So's Tiff, Jodie, Jason and Vicki. Jeremy looked a bit threatening so I didn't ask him.

I'm thinking of buying and importing a used car from Germany, left hand drive of course, wondered if anyone here had done so and what the process is like. I know the mechanics of it but just wonder exactly how onerous it is. For instance, is it as hard as getting a tax refund?!

And the TUV test - I've heard it said that it's much more rigorous than our MOT, covering engine condition as well.

Appreciate this is a running web site, and this is not a running question, though I may use it to transport my running gear from time-to-time!


Road shoes or trail shoes for off road marathon

Posted: 23/06/2015 at 13:21

Have you done one of these before? I went straight from half-marathon to a full x-country marathon and loved it. Put in a pretty respectable time as well. I guess what I'm saying is that as long as you make sure you're rested, uninjured and you've been putting in regular miles, you'll be fine.

Just enjoy it.

Forecast says rain on Friday and maybe Sunday. If you're used to the Brooks, use them, and don;t kick rocks!

I've run cross country marathons in road shoes before and it's fine until it's damp or wet underfoot. It's not just the risk of falling but the lack of traction makes everything harder and more dangerous.

Are diesel cars the spawn of satan?

Fuel cells need rare metals. There is really only one solution to this: travel less.

Maybe this should be a 'gear' question, but it's tri-specific...
