It ha seen suggested I get out on one of the bikes. There's a place 40 mins away where one can ride around a lake in the big hills so might do that. There's walks and a cafe too.

Tbh, I'm pretty miserable about it all, as there were some great interval sessions coming up (words I thought I would never say).

You can ride your bike around the Wirral Circular Trail. It's a closed loop of about 35 miles and it runs past your house.

I'd be the same. You'll be back, though.

And it's a badge of honour, in a way - how many people take up running without getting shin splints?

When I used to try and be the last off the train, but the first into the office complex (when I worked in an industrial estate in Marlow) I would often give myself shin splints.


Nonsense about walking fast below
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
I really don't know what people used to think, seeing a 21 year old manboy in a cheap 90s suit walk past them at about 6 mph day after day.

There was another guy who also tried to be the first into the office complex (he worked in a different building in the same park), that I used to vie with, but he didn't give himself the extra difficulty of being the last off the train.

I used to silently jump for joy whenever I passed him, and weirdly he seemed to live very close to me, because he would also get the same tube as me on the way home, and then get off at the same station, and walk 3/4ers of the way to my parent's flat, before turning off.


Not had them for a while, but I think that's because I don't walk anywhere near that fast any more.

I used to be the first to the top of the long escalators in Liverpool Central station, but not in an obvious "I'm trying to run to work sort of way".

In conclusion: commuting does weird things to your brain.

It sounds more like a case of your weird brain doing things to your commute.

Oh I had a train nemesis. He got on the stop before me. Took me a six months but I moved that bastard from his preferred seat to one three carriages down. By row.

No real reason for it. Never said a word to him, just didn't like his face

Just had my annual medical.. I love being a man of a certain age 8)

My triglycderides are high. I might need more medication. :(

Other than that, a tad overweight, but other than that I am great health.
