The athletics/running thread

If you have a life outside of BWFC, then this is the place to tell us all about your toilet habits, and those bizarre fetishes.......

An 85 year old has just done the mile in 8 mins, 10.4 seconds. To do a mile, it takes me that long just defrosting the car.
Saw that. From Darlington. Achieved on a diet of Woodbines and lard no doubt!
There's hope for me yet!
Found some video footage of you Worthy, from last time you got on the track.

That counts as fruit and can be one of your 5 a day in my book.

Didn’t need to know that. Why can’t you be encouraging like Worthy? :conf:

Think of it the other way around. You can have a third of a chocolate orange for every mile you do. Take the positives! 😉

Just back from a late night swim today. Swam 45 lengths so well over 1k and it only registered about 100 ‘steps’ on my fitbit. :evil:

Pool eerily quiet and a one way system in the changing rooms in place which meant sharing the men’s showers with them afterwards which felt a bit weird. Drew the line at the urinals :vomit:

RIP Chris Smith. A top class fell runner who sadly died whilst running on holiday in Scotland today. He competed for our club in XC And whilst I didn’t know him well personally I had seen his face around plenty. Leaves a wife and 2 young children. Can’t imagine how devastated his family will be right now :cry:

Just about to re-start my abs workouts again. If I never post again it may be that I didn’t survive. Need to trim down this lockdown tummy somehow. :?

You'll be reet ;)

BP and I have agreed to take part in our first 10K of the year this coming Sunday, over the hills of Rossendale (that won't mean much to you, but they're the sort of hills you find wind farms at the top of). :)
May the bridges I burn light your way

Still here! :D

Northern fells?! Probably barely a molehill compared to Ditchling beacon :wink: Take it gently with BP. He’s not as fit as he used to be! Let him stop for a breath if he needs it...

Tbf I thought the cyclists going up Ditchling Beacon were mental. Sod running up it!

I’m so unfit at the moment, I’ll defo need a breather on Sunday. I’ll be reet going from 0 to 10k, won’t I? 😬

Frankly I’m dreading 5k tomorrow after about 3 weeks off. I think you’re mental running 10k up a hill but there we go. Sure Bruce will give you a piggy back if needed.

Having had to teeter down the steep hill by mine last night through wet leaves at roughly the same 'speed' I went up it, I'd say that trial shoes might be in order for Sunday if you have a pair, Owd Lad.

I've just ordered a pair of these rascals :) Asics GT-2000 6 Trail PlasmaGuard
