...in order to gain some advantage in the parents race on my first ever school sports day? It's acceptable behaviour from a 41 year old right? Ds is 3 and it's his mini sports day on Wed and I'm informed there WILL be a parents race. I'm secretly insanely competitive but, despite having two arthritic hips (currently, touch wood, going through a good phase) I'm up against numerous 20year olds.
Any other sneaky underhanded tips I could utilise?
OOhhh I'm liking the warm up routine <digs out Jane Fonda video circa 1980> <realises I don't have a video player anymore>
Good idea Chaos, they've frequently seen me walking like I've shat myself, the oesteo arthritis is in the hip bone on one side and hip joint on the other, sigh. Sods law now it'll flare up again. No, positive thinking.
many moons ago when my daughters were in primary school (they are 27 & 24 now) I got entered into the dads race. Now I get very competive and I was running hell for leather to win this race. Well, I say running hell for leather. My upper body was but my legs weren't. Think I slid the last 10 metres on my face
