You shouldn't be sitting in front of your P.C though mate, should be out doing the phys to earn that lid. What stage in the game are you at the moment??
oldseadog said:Christ ! You're all making me feel like an old man, 55 and still going strong! Yes, I'll agree that your regime is about adequate - for now. However, all the exercise and training in the world is a complete waste of time if you don't have the diet to build up your reserves. Protein and carbs for energy and endurance, and a good pissup once in a while.
If you are running, always make sure that your pack, be it a daybag or a bergen, is comfortable and secure. Don't let it bounce around like Jenny's tits on a Saturday night. If you do, you can guarantee back or shoulder injuries, or both!
Make sure that your boots are soft and well fitting - Oh, and most importantly, look after your feet! You only get one pair issued, and they have to last you a lifetime!
As for going for a run, Nah! Been there and done it for too many years! I'll just have a stroll through town and maybe have a wet, and see what develops! I don't seem to have any bother with the local yobs. For some reason, if they are making pillocks of themselves, all it takes is a glance towards them and they go all quiet. Saves me a fortune over the bar!
If you make it, welcome to the family. If you don't - at least you tried, for which you will have my respect.
Just as an aside, when I mentioned to an old oppo that I had found this board, he said, "I suppose your 'handle' will be somthing like 9mil with Attitude!". I settled for oldseadog or OSD to give the impression of a rather genteel, semi-retired seafarer.Re the yobs not giving you bother, Its something Ive noticed at the RN/RM club near my work. The ex-Bootys that go there (regardless of there age) still look switched on and able to handle themselves. You can see it in their eyes.
Cheers 9Mil with attitude!! :wink:oldseadog said:Spenny,
Just think of your current situation as an opportunity! A couple of snappers and a restless wife! You don't know how lucky you are! As any of those who use this board will confirm, one of the hardest things to deal with is sleep depravation! And you have the temerity to winge about this extra-curricular training that you are geting for free!
You don't say how old your kids are, but take advantage of every moment you have with them - they are only young once, never to be repeated - and I missed mine growing up! As for your wife, hugs and snugs in the bedroom, so that she falls asleep in your arms. One of the most secure positions for her to be in. (OK, I know that one of the others is right leg over left shoulder, but that's for another time! Kerist, don't you lot ever think of anything else??)
