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.......

Think they realised they f*ck up your back so recommend crunches instead now.

I did the squats today at the end of a 15 mins out and then 14.15 back (I think there's a name for that but..) would've been just over 6k. Involved 2 laps around the Emirates. Very quiet.

Now you’re making me jealous. I’ve not been there since last August. :cry:

Well done on run AND squats. That’s hard core.

Struggled to do 2 sit ups,
You Sir, are a God! Tell me they weren't consecutive...

After a few weeks feeling shite, managed 3k yesterday and 4k today, so far.
Well done, now you’re on the mend Worthy you’ve no excuse for showing BP how sit ups should be done. Join us!

After a YouTube tutorial I’ve discovered that I’ve been doing sit ups wrong, for all of my life. Well, when I say ‘doing’ what I really mean is I had the wrong idea of what one is. I’d always thought your legs were supposed to be flat to the ground and you raised your torso, so that your elbows came up to your knees. Either that, or they’ve made them easier by allowing you to bend your knees!

25 squats, 10 sit ups and 10 crunches (with Miss BP say on my feet :oops: ) . Done! I’m not going to be able to move tomorrow!
Numpty! Seriously?! Perhaps GTE needs to do you a few technique videos
They’ve changed the bloody rules in that case! Made things easier for you youngsters, just like they have with GCSE and A levels. 😉
Weren’t they O-levels in your day?!
O levels and 16+ 😎 The latter was relatively short lived iirc.

I also did do a 23 hour shift down t’pit, before walking mi whippet!

Wondered how long it would be before someone made that very unfunny and obvious joke. Had a bet with myself it would probably be you :roll: :wink:

I just know it as an 'Out and Back' strangely. But yes, the objective is to run out for 21minutes at a certain pace and try and get back in 20. Or variations thereof

Done mine. Commandeered the mat after helping my daughter practice her backwards walkover. Perhaps backwards walkovers could be next months ‘challenge’? 🤔

Backwards walkovers? That’s another one you’re gonna have to talk me through.

Done mine and a 3.5 mile run.

Day two in the books. Tried my track session but the hammy still not a fan of faster paces. Hopefully the squats will help.

Not as flexible as I used to be sadly! Though I can still put my palms of my hands on the floor with ease with straight legs! Can you?!
