I'll take the ****ing bagpipes lit, if you'll take the ****ing swearing chavs outside my office window.


This thread is turning into a Royston Blake novel and it's 'doin ma swede in'.

I don't like running in the heat because I sweat about 3.5 times more than normal people 

My mum always tells long stories that feature timings where she will say, for example, we got there at about 3 minutes past 2. We find this amusing.

You will all be pleased to hear that I made it home without being struck by lightning.

If it was anything like the incredible electric storm we had last night then it must have been pretty scary.

Well done Madbee - I'm another who likes running in the heat but I like moaning about it too obviously because it is a type of weather and I am British.

If I go out and run without having used an inhaler prior to my run then after a mile in about 8:30 I am wheezing and gasping for breath.

Having used an inhaler prior to my run (and having properly warmed up) I can run 6:30mm and not be wheezing and although I will be gasping for breath it is a different kind of gasping for breath (the kind VDOT describes).

Now obviously we are not talking a marginal gain there but an experience changing gain and were it not for my inhaler then I would not run.

What I can not tell you is that if I did not suffer from asthma and did not use my inhaler would I perhaps only be able to run 6:40mm? I believe that the inhaler is only putting me on a level playing field but who knows?

But whatever the truth of that to already be able to run sub 5 minute miles and then decide that you have developed asthma seems a bit of a stretch.

Skinny, I just wrote you a lengthy explanation of the rules about commas and conjunctions and then didn't post it because it was far too tedious and not even tenuously linked to running. But if you want it let me know and I will e-mail you some examples.

If it had phrases in like 'co-ordinating conjunction' then I think that is probably for the best.

Okay thanks both then I'll try and explain why I put it where I did and you can tell me why this is wrong.

I first wrote the sentence without the contents between the commas.

Then I added that bit in and thought the rule was that the commas should be placed where the sentence would make sense without the contents between the commas.

So with no commas at all it would make sense but if I put the comma before the 'but' then the sentence outside the commas would have a random 'but' in it and wouldn't read properly.

Then I wasn't really happy with how it was in the end either which is why I wondered about no commas.

Sheesh - think the heat is melting my brain.

Charlie I have really enjoyed reading some of the 1* reviews on Amazon (I've also read the 5* ones) - when they're about your book does it give you sleepless nights or do you just focus on the 5* ones and count the cash?

Don't be silly - I'm still mastering English!

Are my commas in the right place in first sentence? The two options I considered were no commas at all or the commas where I have put them.
