Downhill? :lol: 42 miles on a mountain bike is pretty tough. O_o


About 17 of it was downhill(ish) mountain biking isn't really downhill or uphill. Its switch-back up the hill through the gnarliest spots the trail-maker could find, jump down the hill then repeat. With a nice long uphill grind in between with a few streams, fallen trees and thigh sized roots thrown in for good measure. :evilgrin:

I don't know about all you slackers out there, but I REALLY give my thumbs a work out when I play BF2 :rofl:

Jokes aside, I keep busy enough with volunteering (you know ....being mother Teresa :rofl: ) to stay active and fit. No need for me to go on a power walk when I am lifting random crap all day :doh:

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

Exercise ? Well, lets see ..

I've just about ran across a massive land . Dont know how many miles but it sure is a long run. Perhaps some of you know this area , its called Skyrim
And I sprint often, when the police are chasing me, in GTA4
And its hard work being a F1 racer, in F1 2011
And I jump between buildings and run often, in Mirrors Edge
And I run many miles every football match, in Fifa 12
And parkour is very difficult and very physically straining, in Assassins Creed
And competing in the GT1 championship is tough work, in Shift 2

That enough ? :P :lol:
