It's been that long since I've swam I'm fairly sure my hips don't know either.
I've just been some Dalai Lama tweets, my current favourite: "We tend to forget that despite the superficial differences between us, people are equal in their basic wish for peace and happiness." and "Compassion is a feeling from deep in the heart that you cannot bear someone else's suffering without taking steps to relieve it.".
Actually my out-y is from operations I had when young, though the result is much the same: I love the cake!
How have you been SOLB?
I'm sorry to hear that SOLB! I'm happy to lend a sympathetic ear if you want, but I appreciate I am a stranger and this is a public forum! (I also have an unsympathetic ear, but he's not very nice!)
I'm alright thanks, busy which is always better for me. I need to get my fat-arse running more!
Take care of yourself SOLB,
This thread has picked up again.Lots of people saying nice things about you, which can't be bad.
You appear to be a providing something here that people need.
I'm pretty good. (I have a bad knee, but time should fix that)
The forum is a good place for - well all sorts of things. But you can get the unwanted attention of the troll.
SOLB, ice cream helps everything (except for brain freeze).
I like the phrase "the aggregation of marginal gains" which they use in cycling about doing the little 1% things to hopefully make up 5 or 10% difference. I often think life is like that!
As for social niceties...down with them I say! Seriously though, it's good you feel that you can be unhibited on this forum.
I'm pretty sure that if it's a little thing that improves your mood then it's a marginal gain, if there's lots of then it's an aggregation! Little things pleases little minds!
As for expanding waistlines...meah, I prefer a bit of Buddhist acceptance
Hi SOLB, this is my first time to get involved on a forum so please accept my best wishes on your love of running as a way of helping you through life. Last august i had an accident and recieved a fractured skull and minor brain damage,but my love of running has been a huge help in my recovery.However after running the cardiff half marathon in 1hour 28 mins,i have since found it hard to get motivated again.Listening to your positive coments has now helped this 58 year old to grt back to a more positive frame of mind, good luck for the future.
Hi solb, thank you for your quick reply. I may sound a single minded in what i want to do which is just get as fit as a 58 year old can, but with help off people like you who knows what can happen.To be completly honest i just want to try and be fit and healthy to help my family who have helped me get back into somthing i enjoy.Every day i run is a bonus - in a race or just a training run arround the area i love to train,but most important to help me keep healthy.
once again thank you
Went for the first run of the solb get into a routine 7 day series ... great to be out there though my unfit lungs didn't enjoy it so much
My belly button is out; loud and proud!
(Enjoying the festive name change SOLB)
Well with a name like "Ben-o" I can't claim to have much imagination! It reminds me of the time in the early 90s when i thought adding "o" to everyone's name made me most radical/bodacious dude in the school playground!
