@klaymates - thanks for the star. Does winded really work for blisters?

Yeah, the toddler diversion thing ties onto one of my goals - looking around and noticing things. In the book I'm reading for inspiration On Looking: About Everything There is to See <a data-ipb="nomediaparse" data-cke-saved-href="http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17171099-on-looking%20the%20author%20goes%20on%20walks%20with%20people%20who%20have%20another%20perspective,%20including%20a%20young%20child,%20to%20get%20a%20sense%20of%20what%20else%20there%20is%20out%20there%20if%20only%20we" href="http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17171099-on-looking%20the%20author%20goes%20on%20walks%20with%20people%20who%20have%20another%20perspective,%20including%20a%20young%20child,%20to%20get%20a%20sense%20of%20what%20else%20there%20is%20out%20there%20if%20only%20we" d%20look.%20i%20certainly%20remember%20noticing%20insects%20more%20when%20my%20daughter%20was%20that%20age.%20she's%20a%20little%20more%20grown%20up%20now%20so%20hee%20take%20on%20things%20is%20a%20bit%20more%20conventional.%20a%20bit."="">http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17171099-on-looking the author goes on walks with people who have another perspective, including a young child, to get a sense of what else there is out there if only we'd look. I certainly remember noticing insects more when my daughter was that age. She's a little more grown up now so hee take on things is a bit more conventional. A bit.

Last night I dreamed I was watching an interview of you 18ck.  You had beaten all three medalists, and got a tv spot for it.

 

This is why I should never NF right before bed.  I'm dreaming about you all more and more.

I think I've mentioned these dudes before

The National Front are a neo fascist group composed of angry white idiots. I think they were more active in the 70s and 80s but apparently they are still active up here in the North and they are having a shouty demo here today.

Note the emblem on the right hand side of the banner. This is what makes wearing a nerd fitness t shirt a problem in the UK. I think the Captain America style one is just about passable but I seriously don't want to be mistaken for one of those arseholes.

Throwbacks aside, it's a great atmosphere in town. There's a junior girl's race by the river and the streets are full of children of all ages warming up.

Oy!  You could always try wearing NF briefs, or whatever support garments you guys wear to lift and separate.  I'm sure Steve and/or Staci would give you permission to put a logo on your undies as long as you don't intend to wear them publicly or sell them.  :D :D :D

We had the EDL parading past our road last weekend... there were choppers and policeman everywhere!  I'd never thought of that connection to NF though!

 

On a completely different note, I hope your race in the Great Northern Run today has gone well! :)  I've just got it on the TV in the background :)

Hi @kevralyn (I'm old-school) @hammi and @klaymates

Not to be deterred, I got 18ckette to take my picture on the way back in my NF (Not Fascist) t-shirt in front of what I'm pretty sure is a statue of Phylanx, judging by some of the YouTubes he has posted.

I had a good race. It was a bit crowded to really go all out, but despite tripping over Wonder Woman and jostling Bagpus and shoving Bananaman out of the way, I managed to beat my PB by 4 Minutes for a final time of 1:58:07.

That's a little short of my pony-prize qualifying time but I will earn it one day. It will be mine. Oh yes, Nerd Fitness, it *will* be mine.

Great job dude! Also, pony prize? And if anyone asks you about the NF on your shirt, tell them you're taking it back.

Yep

The pony prize was a ref to my goals. If I got my time down to 1.55 and raised £500 I could treat myself to a riding lesson.

Not mine. I cannot have this.

Ok, let's get this bad boy wrapped up then...

Basically I had a pretty active week period and improved a lot but ignored a lot of goals.

Faster than a swallow:

Did the program albeit slightly sloppily - Sta 3, Str 2

Lighter than a duck - Fail

Flesh Wound - Fail, basically

Taunting - Pitiful Fail

Airy Fairy Stuff -

Sing: Yes +1Wis

Blood: Yes but no points

Steal Ideas from Hammlin: Yes +1Wis

I think I get a bonus for doing 2 extra weeks but lose it again for not really joining in with guild stuff.

I've also started training for a sculling race and I think added +1Str and +1 DEX (technical rowing skills) as a result so thats

Str +3

Sta +3

Con

Wis +2

Dex +1

Cha

Must try harder
