Not a tall well


Still battling the tight hamstrings and achillies problems but starting to string together some decent training. Have you ever had the pain that comes from directly behind your knee, in the cup where it bends? What's that about?

I'm not going to break any running records until I get over this but this post, or my blog in general, certainly would put me in the running for the record for "talking about nothing."

"The outdoor record for talking about nothing is held by Mrs. Vera Etherington (GB) and her neighbour Mrs. Dolly Booth (GB) of Ipswich, who between 11th November 1983 and 12th January 1984 chundered on over their fence in an unenlightening dialogue lasting 62 days until Mrs. Booth remembered she'd left the bath running."

Thanks to VIZ magazine for the above quote and cartoon. This is a very childish read that appeals to me. In one of their sections "Roger's Profanisaurus" they define the following term..

Dutch Marathon n. The hasty, yet seemingly never-ending walk home after purchasing a new selection of fleshmags from a specialist newsagent.

  1. Hope you're a tall well soon Scott... although I would have thought 17" is worth bragging about ;)
