    THE DECATHLON. WHAT NOT TO LIKE?

    Have you heard of Daley Thompson? He was a decathlete, a forerunner of myself, the blazer of the trail upon which I now strut my stuff. But, in case there are any pedants out there reading this, let me be clear , I am using the term ‘decathlon’ in a somewhat loose sense to encompass, well, pretty much any athletic activity. People often ask me: how, at your advanced age are you still improving your times and performances? If I’m not in a bad mood, I’ll give them a one [rather than a two] word answer: the decathlon [oh, that’s two words as well, never mind.] Running, jumping, hurling things, vaulting, chasing animals, shinning up drainpipes, kicking vegetables, gut-barging, even a touch of water-sport [usually in the steeplechase] all these disciplines have played their part in moulding the athletic beast I am. Come to specifics, you say. All right. Take the discuss [the biggest coin produced by the Royal Mint]. What I have found is that the whirling round involved can be used to effect on the track .I was tiring in a recent 800 and a little voice in my nut said, take a couple of whirls. So I did, and managed to rev myself up like a lawnmower, spinning across the track at an acute angle and tremendous speed, removing three of my keenest opponents. Job done. One word of caution, don’t eat a pot of jellied eels before a discuss competition. It can make you feel like you’re on a waltzer with another waltzer going round in your big fat gut. The results can be unpleasant and not just for the athlete. Well, OK, what good is jumping then? As you may know, I often mooch down to the Buttermarket on market day kitted up and charge along the crowded aisles, ducking between the stalls, leaping over shopping trolleys and Mrs Pearson like the crazy salmon I am, once or twice flattening civilians, their canvas shopping bags and purchases flying through the air. Great stuff ! But, how does this aid my cross-country performance? Ah ha! Have you seen me when runners are queuing at a stile on the Croft course? I’m straight up to the adjacent barbed-wire fence and, up, up and away and over I go. Don’t worry if I get tangled up with it, I drag it along behind me repelling all boarders. Without the decathlon training, I’d be Joe Nobody, an ordinary runner.

  2. Hi. I would love to join up if possible. Started running 18 months ago and love it.did Birmingham half last October and really enjoyed it.i always trained mainly on treadmill but due to reacurring injury have realised outdoor running suits me best.i work 12 hour shifts 4 on 4 off so would sometimes not make the training if that’s ok.thanks.

    1. Hi Nicola, thanks for your comment. Well done on completing the Birmingham Half! No worries about not being able to attend every training night, you will be more than welcome to join any nights you can fit in around work. We also have a facebook page if you wanted further information or interact with other club members. Eliot.
