Re: Running ... again

2 hours a week over 40 years gives you three years back when you cant get a jar on, smoke a spliff, get pissed and remember anything if you did. Cant be arsed with that ROI.

It's not about that though, it's about the quality of life while you're still able. Keep tellin me Ma over n over...

Snatching misery from the jaws of glory since, ooooooh, 1973?

Re: Running ... again

TT - where you at now?  I have been sans phone for a while and not caught up with my instagram feed.

I went for a 4.5 mile run tonight - first run since March 7th and a injury catastrophe. 

My dodgy knees first played up, then I had a bulging disc in me neck (ouch), then a broke a toe and finally cracked some ribs.  I am not right but well enough for a trot - I need top get back into it badly.

Thoroughly enjoyed it and feel rather chipper now.  Might even let the missus have it later.

Aim Low and miss...

You sure you were running? Sounds like someone's just given you a shoeing.

Re: Running ... again

Good work on getting back out Dan. 4 and a half miles getting back out there is some going !

Me...Day 69 ... had some very very short runs during the move but back doing 5kms daily now. Feel free to offer encouragement,  pisstake or abuse at @mrnicjones - it helps .

My Mate Rey ... is on day 300

I think you're picking your check in days TT for the jokes - Day 44 and 69...... ;D

Keep at it mate,  no doubt you're really feeling the benefit now?

Re: Running ... again

^^  Ha ha ha

I am tempted to give this a go. 

How short are your short runs then?

I am thinking my usual training regimen when I'm fit of three runs a week, Two short (five miles) one long (seven/eight) miles and the rest about a mile round the block near where I live.

I can also take loads of selfies for insta and twat on about my eclectic musical tastes to boot!  it's a win win...

I hurl some abuse at you now on Insta. 

In other name related news my ex brother in law is called Nic Jones.

Sorry, missed this.

Short runs are about 4k . Taking pictures is the most fucking annoying part. Ax for music ... the Cure, New Orde and Depeche Mode make me run properly. Would love to listen to Nightmares on Wax more given the scenery but it makes me plod

Nic Jones... Im as common as fuck

He fell asleep in the end. As for running, he comes to the end of the street with me.
I'll be out later on this evening.
