    Driving back from tonights walk and along one of the pavements was a young chap jogging in shorts and t shirt, nothing special except he was vastly overweight.
    I hope he had a proper check up at the doctors, and I wish him luck :)

    That's a coincidence, I saw someone like that when I was driving back from a walk with my doggies a few hours ago. Poor guy's moobs were bouncing rather quite a lot, eesh... at least women can get sports bras.

    Good luck to them. Or is that patronising? They're probably fitter than I am! lol.

    I imagine that would hurt.. Joggers nipple comes to mind.. Yeoooooowch

    And yes.. the greatest respect to these people.. and like has been said always wise to have a good health check before venturing to such exercise..

    I used to be friends with a big Rugby player.. couldn't jog.. he was too heavy for his knees.. :eek: through muscle doc told him to get rid of some or he would be on sticks for the rest of his life.. Quite a wake up call..

    Good on all those who go out and make efforts to get fit :D

    But I have seen a few people out on jogs/runs and I have literally thought, OMG i hope I`ve remembered all the first aid I was ever taught, as they looked like they were about to actually die infront of me... pale clamy faces, wheezing away as they jogged on by ... leaning on each lampost as they pass

    Good luck to the bloke indeed.

    OH & I once passed a VERY, VERY large lady on a bicycle. She was rather red in the face as she peddled along and OH commented "She'd probably get on better without the panniers on the side."

    The only problem was..... They weren't panniers.....!!!! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Hi Rona,

    Couldn't be sure it was you or not but as I was i"in the zone" I didn't want to break my breathing pattern as I was in a hurry.
    I was too involved in something bad on TV and realised there was only a few hours before the chippy shut so I had to run there. The shorts and t-shirt were just a coincidence really.

    I'll stop and say "Hi" next time.

    I've got a brother in law like that, was suffering from a chest infection and still insisted on running, ended up in hospital. :rolleyes:
    He also had to have treatment for a irregular heartbeat earlier this year, and all he wanted to know was how soon could he get back to running

    I agree! I saw one lady jogging at 6am every single morning while I was walking my dogs all last winter. You remember how icy it was?! One of the worst days for ice, she slipped and fell down, got straight back up, and kept frigging running!! Insanity. lol.

    ...Saying that, she probably thought I was nuts for walking my dogs in all weathers too, so, to each their own.

    Good on him, i respect people like that that takes time and effort to lose weight rather than spending more time sitting thinking who they can blame for it.
