Farah vs. Vernon

No he wasn't born here, he was born in Somalia. However, he has a British Passport and has had for many years... he is therefore British. He has lived here since he was 8. He is 31. I'm happy to call him British if he is. Or Somalian-born Brit if we are being picky... but that is a bit of a long winded effort to be honest. 

What is your oldest item of clothing you still wear?

I have hand me downs from my sister who is 40 (I'm 34) which she wore when she was 15 ish. Still quite proud they still fit

Dehydration can make you feel nauseous. I have often felt rough after a long run if I am dehydrated as I haven't drank enough during the run. It can be a combination of this.. while low blood sugar can make you feel sick/dizzy. If you get cold that can also exacerbate symptoms.

Calf strain + Marathon

The answer to your question re marathon shape in 9 weeks with no exercise in the last 4 months is no. But I think you know that already.

I am assuming by "this year's marathon" you mean erm.. London??? You are aware that there are a billion other marathons throughout the year in the UK that you could train for when fit and not struggle to walk around with an injury. It might even save you a fortune be a load less crowded and probably be a hell of a lot more scenic. But then I've never understood the fuss about London. 


Anyone else Hate running

Aw man I LOVE XC!!!! Yeah sure it's cold, wet, miserable, muddy and you run around hyperventilating like a chronic asthmatic feeling like your lungs are going to explode and wondering why your legs feel like lead and when the measly 4km (or whatever distance) is going to be over.... but then you get to the end and realise how much FUN it was to splash in all the mud and puddles... all the while actually coughing up your lungs. Changing in the open sided tent afterwards is the least of my worries  The guy in our club who deals with the XC always tries to arrange extra mud for me  It's my favourite time of year... and it coincides with cyclocross season which is like the same thing... on a bike which isn't too far from a road bike in appearance ... Did I say I like MUD???

Wenterrapin... nothing scenic about running in and around a suburban country park/schol playing fields or similar...

No, you get out the pool put on your shoes and run. If you're not wearing a tri suit you can either just run in your swim suit or fling on a t shirt and/or shorts. You don't need to dry, you will dry quickly enough.

The Undateables

I'd feel more comfortable with the show and more trusting of it's intentions if it wasn't called "The Undateables". Just doesn't quite sit comfortably with me. 

Eliminator Race 7th Feb - Newbie any tips on CLOTHING??

Posted: 08/01/2015 at 20:39

As Trogs says, you will get wet and muddy... so there's no point in having unnecessary kit which will also get wet muddy and heavy. If you are running you won't be cold, regardless of how wet you are. You will only notice when you stop in all likelihood... so my advice is wear a base layer with maybe a tshirt or vest over the top and capri shorts and take a change of clothes, old tracky bottoms etc for after for a quick change so that you are warm on the journey home. If there are no changing facilities... then many a runner have been known to do quick changes behind their cars/in the bushes/in the middle of a field... and believe me, no-one is looking at anyone's white legs (which will probably be black by the end) and no-one cares what you look like or if you do have a quick change... everyone is there for the same reason. Have fun!!!

Is running in the dark easier

+1 what Bear said.

So have you been wearing your Christmas jumper today?

Posted: 12/12/2014 at 16:37

seren Grinch didn't say "I don't have to wear one"... they said "I don't HAVE ONE to wear".. merely stating they don't have a Christmas jumper, but their daughter did and wore it to school.... calm down...
