FFF Club Christmas Eve 2002



  • Only the first 5 or 6 benz. You'll be fine after that.
  • ..but despite what I said earlier I do get a warm kind of glow afterwards which is nice, and I can cope with the pain and (dare i say it here) "boredom" if I'm running with music - you can sort of pretend your ...er dancing -- or get lost in a trance like state!

    would never have got through Dublin if the radio hadn't been playing 100 top records of all time - in fact when reception conked out for a good few miles it was extremely difficult

    I've found my new speed/distance monitor a great encouragement in terms of on-the-road motivation

    I think the key to progress must be some speed work and more regular long runs

  • If I do speed work should cut my distance down ?
  • darent run with music, as i often run in the dark, and my visions not too good in the light anyway, so need to keep ears open
  • I listen to music in my head, usually the same song time after time after time

  • ...tip for next year - got a nifty little device from Smiths you wear on your wrist and pull out precut strips of Scotch invisible tape one at a time - made the whole process much less of a pain than usual
  • friend of a friend walked out in front of a lorry and was on intensive care for some time - apparantly all the nurses and her friends kept going on about her wearing headphones

    like well yes point taken, but she's on a ventilator now, so perhaps you could focus on that
  • Why were the nurses and her friends wearing headphones? And how could they hear each other going on about her?
  • Chimp, I'm going to nominate you and Mrs Chimp for URWRCF New Years Honours List - along with Running Commentary
  • helloo -anyone about now or later ron?
  • benz has been in and out bune but she's cut her lip and is applying gin (to be taken internally apparently)
  • hello
