Am just showing my age as tats are so fashionable now. I don't think they look nice on women, infact I don't really like them that much on chaps either
I have my ears pierced, even got a mate to do two more holes either side for me with a pin when I was very young.....ouch......how the hell did I go through that lol anyway I let them close up thought about nose but thankfully never did it
Wanted a quick run when I got home but its pitch black ere already maybe a quick round the streets will have to do
Have a good evening
First time I've had chance to look in today. Been very achy all day following yesterdays exertions
Sabbie, well done on the run. Good time that. I am surrounded by Tattoo addicts. My partner has a few small discreet ones but my step-daughter has loads, one of which goes all down her side. Not got any myself but am tempted to get a Liver Bird. I could suggest a really funny one that my partners friend was considering getting but think I would get banned from the forum
Silver, wasn't good Saturday, midfield really unbalanced, not looking very positive with Chelsea and Man City next two games. Couldn't even drink to make it better with having the race yesterday
Yeah, been working, mind you I had a lie in and didn't go in until late due to aches and pains
Didn't realise you had suffered a bout of depression. I went through the same thing two years ago. Had never understood it until it hit me. Mine was mainly brought about by the struggles of trying to keep a failing business afloat. Went onto medication but managed to wean myself off it in a few months(never been comfortable with popping pills) Still have my moments but think the exercise has helped in the last few months.
I've heard the phrase 'Recovery Run' but don't actually know what it entails. Suppose I ought to look it up
Your son has got the right idea! Which team is closest to you? Torquay?
Oh well here goes. The girl in question is a bit crazy and was considering having the phrase 'All You Can Eat A Fiver' tattooed in the vicinity of a certain part of her body. I guess the ban will start very soon
.......I got lost.........
I ran a lot!
Am going for another trial run with the club tomorrow if I feel up to it so will do it slow and hope that it qualifies as a recovery run.
Exeter are a division above Torquay at the mo, Liverpool played at Exeter in the League Cup earlier in the season but I couldn't go because I was on holiday at the time. Went to the races there once, was a good course and had some excellent beer in the town centre but the main thing I remember is the bus ride from the town to the course, didn't think the bus would make it up Haldon hill.
Silver, hope you didn't think I was prying over the depression thing, just hit home when I read it having been there myself.
Mal, I like the idea of going out and getting lost, may try it next Sunday, may end up somewhere more exciting
Mal - your post cracked me up love it
Didn't get out last night, hubby had dinner ready when I walked in so that put pay to that club run tonight
I’m not far from Marlow Booey but I’m not sure I want to dress up as Santa and run for 5 miles. Is it compulsory?
Although I have the white hair already (and prob a white beard if I let it grow) so all I need is the red suit.
I did look at your bookmarks at the weekend but I didn’t see anything close enough to me. My club has a 10k race coming up soon which I could enter but apparently it’s a difficult one. Info here.
I’ll have a chat about it with the guys tonight.
BTW - do you know where Sabbies posts went – they seem to have disappeared over night.
Santa suite is not compulsory don't worry, I will defo not be wearing one I struggle with over heating as it is hehe
I would chat with your chaps tonight about your club race, I always get a tad put off when its a top club organised race as it makes it all sound to serious just for the elites kinda thing. Am sure I am just being stupid though hehe
Sabbies posts are there, or the last one is at 22.40. I wasn't online so not sure what was posted
Now that’s weird I can’t see any of Sabbies posts right back through the thread certainly not one at 22.40.
Do you think she’s barred me? Or am I getting paranoid?
Oh! It seems I accidently hit the ‘ignore member’ button.
Sorry Sabbie don’t hold it against me.
Ha ha, I reckon all the Tattoo talk has scrambled your brain Silver
Booey, I was worried that the race on Sunday would be rather serious as it was the annual race of a running club but it turned out fine. Maybe there were less 'fun runners' than the first one I did but everyone was very friendly and it was really well organised and marshalled. Only difference was this time I finished nearer last than first
Am trying to find a race to aim for in January that would be my last prep for the HM on February 19th but am struggling. Was considering the 'Stourbridge Stagger' a 10 mile race that is less than an hour away from me, until I discovered that it included climbing over several stiles
Just checked out that race Silver, you ought to go for it if you can. Sounds perfect.
I know I am childish but I love the name 'Herberts Hole' . I gather its the name of a valley?
On Sunday I ran along 'Butt Hole Lane' and am still giggling about it now
Stripes maybe that's partly my problem, being scared of being last all the races I have done so far have been charity organised or similar and I have always seemed to stay more or less in the middle of the pack
One of the chaps who runs the running club came in last once he said your not a true runner until you experience coming last that made me feel better haha
Butt Hole Lane hahahahahah thats well funny
Butt Hole Lane - that’s a classic Stripes.
I have to say in this part of the world everything is ‘bottom this’ or ‘hole that’.
I’ve just looked again it seems to be a bit of a grueller – no level paths apparently all up and downhill. We train in the Lowndes Park at the beginning and I know that’s a real slope and a drag out of the town.
I agree with Boo on the quality of runners – I don’t mind coming down the field but I wouldn’t want to come last especially when I run with these guys every week.
I must admit I am scared of being last as well but I checked out results from previous years races and was hopeful I wouldn't be
There were lots of older runners in Sunday's race who would no doubt have spanked me in their prime but are maybe not as quick as they were!
