No I was just interested. My Garmin had me at 565 calories for a 10k yesterday and I was wondering how accurate that was and how many beers I’d earned. 
 

Still debating whether to wait until second half before I start on the beer, have done that the last few games and it’s worked out ok for the whites.

Garmin is some of the best tech so yeah I’d say it’s about right 


oh and I’m very superstitious when it comes to football , don’t change the routine

I did a 10.29km a couple of weeks ago and my 'MapMy' app reckoned 1056kcal burned...

I ain't having it that it's inaccurate to the tune of almost double.

I'm not particularly arsed as I'll get there anyway and always take my average km/min times as more indicative of improvement, but I may change app if it's that much out.

Anyhow, back to topic.

These Desperados or Amigos or whatever, I'm sure our friends at Home Bargains do giant bottles of one or t'other for about two quid.

Never mentioned it before as I assumed only wimmin drank it.

Ha ha! 😂

Yes a home bargains special! Just about to crack the first open!

As my avatar suggests I’m into a bit of the tequila infused lager, nice and refreshing (just after another 10k - 886 calories 😉

It's my sister's (paracetamols/ironing board) go to drink straight after a longer shift at work...

A big Desperado.

She says it's for the 'taste', I suspect it's to make up for lost drinking time (as they're about 6%).

Anyhow, it sounds like you've earned it, and 886 calories for 10km sounds much more plausible to me.

565? No chance, get some new kit, QFPants...

Strava has me about the same

maybe QF was walking, or a slow runner

Strava well known for overstating calories 

10k run for me This morning came in at 884 as per my watch which I think is pretty accurate and I’m heavier than you

I had visions of him tootling along on a small childs scooter. 😀

And the Garmin rumbled his antics so rounded him down...

I've thought about it and maybe 1000+ for 10km is overegging it, I'd do 10km on the treadmill at the gym and it'd just about reach four figures calorie-wise but the whole run I'd do on incline.

I think once I mentally noted "That's Scafell Pike..." on reading 'metres climbed' but I may have dreamt that...

Now then, intermittent fasting, does drinking a can of 'Lynx' lager two hours before fast end count?

I might get 'gone' off it, having not eaten fourteen hours already...

I might drink it through a straw, or does that only work with cider?

I remember when we were kids a lad heard that and tried to drink a full 2L of Strongbow through one of those tiny red Vimto cup straws...

Yes no way you can rely on Strava for calories, mine is linked to my Garmin though.

Was 44 minutes something I think, to be fair I only weigh about 61kgs so I’m not that arsed about calories, was just curious how it worked out.

Now to crack open a Big Drop pale ale just for @Rudy

Today has been the first day where I’ve seriously expected to put a decent amount of ale away, yet I’ve only had two 500ml 1664, four 660ml Keo and two 500ml Aldi Pilsner so about eight pints by my reckoning. Fuck all really given it was spread over 11 hours. Maybe it’s the difference in sitting on the couch versus drinking on the train and then racing from pub to pub?

Keo is one of the worst beers in the world.

seems ok sat in the Cypriot sun, but by fuck it mustn’t  travel well because I had it when I got back from paphos and it was like drinking fizzy bin juice

Just popped into Tommy’s

Anyone owning up to Tipa?

@£8.79

@Youri McAnespie

It's because of folk being taken in by chicanery like this that a bottle of Heineken is now £2.99 in corner-shops and a pint of Guinness will probably be about seven quid everywhere when the pubs open again, apart from shithair Brexitwat's gaffs.

Tennents is the best tramp juice ever ever brewed

i dream about the old days when you could find it on draught
EXTRA  of course
