My wife has a w pouch, one of the early ones from the 90s.  She goes to the gym regularly and runs a lot on the treadmill.  She only had one operation.  In those days they did it In a oner rather than spreading the procedure over several ops.  

What shoes to wear for marathon??

Posted: 12/12/2014 at 14:52

Doing all my running in my bikila evos now.  Did a 20 mile run last Sunday, definitely don't need heavy trainers for marathons.

Do you belong to a gym?

Posted: 07/12/2014 at 18:32

Yes.  Use the gym to cross train on weights and bike.  Don't use treadmill though as it makes my feet hurt.  The landing is too smooth.

Compression running socks advice

I find compression guards and tights give me pain in the feet.  Have stopped wearing them.   Did a bit of googling and it looks like they can effect circulation.

Is it ever right to attack someone

Posted: 28/11/2014 at 22:24

It is legal to attack someone if you reasonably believe they are about to attack you.  Beat them to the punch.  For example if someone verbally threatens you it is advisable to hit them before they finish their spiel.

The good old days

When young we had a play ground in our back garden.  My parents had converted an old children's home and most of the kit was still there.  it included long chain swings that my brother and I liked to jump off when they reached their highest point.  Also had one of those roundabouts on a concrete base.  It wasn't a normal one where one stood but simply a circular metal frAmerica that you just had to hang on to.  Loved it.  Also had multiple climbing frames with overhead bars.

Never had any accidents.
