... in a white GMC Jimmy who backed up recklessly and called you a “fucking cunt”, just know my wife and I got his plates and a pic and reported him to the police.
Hope that makes you feel better about your day!
*edited Sorry. It’s recklessly not wrecklessly.
*edit 2 Some were concerned I’m reporting people for just bad language, I wanted to clarify that I made the report for reckless driving. This dude reversed his car through a busy intersection, continued backwards half a block, then pulled up onto the sidewalk right in front of the jogger to try and block their path.
Hello, I just moved to the UK last month, got settled in (Sunderland) and am ready to resume my usual exercise routine. Was just curious if there is anything I should be weary of? I know this isn't America where I need to be careful about jogging at night or in rich/white neighborhoods, but this is an ingrained thing that will probably never leave me no matter where I am. I'm mostly concerned about locals who might think I look suspicious and would call the cops on me. One incident alone was enough to scar me for life😅
I saw post about being cat called so I wondered if the opposite has happened to anyone?
Every time I see a stranger jogging/running I do a little cheer for them mentally (and sometimes out loud when I'm in the car with the windows up so they cant hear me) I keep it to myself mainly because I know its hard to get back into a good head space if suddenly jerked out of it.
My question is has anyone had a possitive experiences where someone has said something to cheer you on when out running and how would you handle it? Would you like it or would it bother you?
Edit: just finished reading all of the comments and honestly I'm floored. Im getting teary eyed cause damn there's still people out there that are nice and cool and encouraging. Y'all made my day.
And for those who don't like those small gestures its ok don't let people who down vote you make you down. Everyone is different and thats ok. I just hope that if I do meet anyone like you I dont make things bad for you. I'm coming from a place where I genuinely want to encourage and support you on your run. Hopefully that translates in real life.
Thank you for everyone who commented. I appreciate it and hope you have an awesome run. You can do it!
Sorry if this goes against rules, please delete if it does. I’m trying to get back into running (it’s been a long time), but with my life circumstances I’d need to do it with my 2yo. Do any of you have recommendations for jogging strollers that won’t destroy my bank account? I’ll mostly be running on even, well paved paths, if that helps.
In transition, usually off of a missed shot, Chris Paul will run near the other team's slow-footed big before anyone picks him up in the halfcourt. And before you know it, he's in a halfcourt set with a mismatch on the big or an open teammate. If he gets the mismatch, he can terrorize the big for his patented middie or attack for an even higher percentage shot.
CP is known to be one of the best halfcourt players in the game. But he's showing that you don't need amazing athleticism or Redick-like sprinting and shooting to be great in transition.
Does anyone else notice how carefully CP picks his spots to jog with the ball in transition?
I am still learning but tonight I tried rolling in the street while pushing our stroller (obviously an empty stroller and an empty street) it went pretty well even though I am a definite beginner. I'm thinking if I had a jogging stroller I could definitely push it while rollerskating and then we could roll out as a family (spouse does longboard so he can't push a stroller).
Does anyone have advice or experience with pushing a jogging stroller while skating? If it matters baby is still an infant so getting him on skates is not an option yet and I would be looking for an infant helmet just because you know, safety.
So im not that overweight all around im kinda skinny fat where only my stomach pops out and im told to do cardio and jog but where i live isnt the safest and was just wondering if there is any alternatives to cardio that would help me get rid of my gut
I’m 31 years old, 70lbs overweight, 5’1” and I started jogging at the beginning of January, at least 4 times per week for 30mins. I’ve been seeing amazing results in terms of my speed and stamina improvement and I’ve just generally been really enjoying jogging. I’ve lost 8lbs since I started so the pounds haven’t really been coming off as fast as I’d like, but I know that’s because my diet hasn’t been on track. My friend keeps telling me that jogging while at this weight is bad for my knees in the long term. Is jogging at this weight bad for the knees? Should I find a different mode of cardio that’s less traumatic to my joints?
Edit: oh man I worded that title badly, the picture in my head of the idea was much cleaner.
I have been using my formal meditation time each day this week to focus intently on specific guitar exercises as a test.
Still seems to get me into the zone of awareness and fight against me as I try to stay there.
Just as effective/valid/useful tool to meditate with?
Just looking for opinions, I suppose my choice for reasoning for or against would be neuroscience evidence showing brain effects, but daily effects on my life to seem to equal no matter how or where why I meditate, just that I do.
I'm a few pounds overweight. My feet ache quite easily after a little over an hour of leisure walking in sneakers or flats. I find the UB 19s really comfortable for brisk walking, but quite difficult to jog in. Any shoe recommendations for heavy beginners? Thanks!
I dont really have competitions and an oval to run to(schools are closed). I am also trying to lose my body fat percentage and it seems jogging long distances is the answer.
I run an 11.5's 100m and 24.5's 200m
Also, if it do ruin my time can I return to my normal times?
I've experienced this long before covid, for almost ten years, when I'm not sick and I've never been diagnosed with asthma or any condition that would be relevant
I typically go on runs for 30-45 mins, I train with walking/running to build up to this time. I dont struggle during the running, but once it ends and I'm walking home I start coughing. It sometimes lasts 30-60 mins after I stop running. I feel like its from my chest, there's not "stuff" I'm coughing up. Also this seems to be worse on cold winter days.
I usually end up putting on The Age of Adz, and though I start out jogging gently along, by the time I Want To Be Well builds up, I am racing around the park screaming silently “I’m not fuckin around”… Then Impossible Soul takes me back down til Pleasure Principle is a soft landing
