The Pretend Thread


#81

Honoured to give that its 10th like


#82

Like socialist poster boys Richard Boyd Barrett and Paul Murphy?


#83

A lot of pretend farmers waffling on lately.


#84

Gentleman farmers. All their wives are nurses.


#85

They’ve got their own thread now,


#86

why are you talking to yourself?


#87

Oofft. The forums own Miley Byrne who farms the lush grasslands of Dooradoyle gave it a bullseye. :rofl:
Have you a few hectares in Peckham yourself?


#88

@Ambrose_McNulty was right about the townies going nuts over it :laughing:


#89

The townies and city slickers don’t like it up them at all. If you’re not discussing slow cooked meats and designer clothes, they’ve no interest.
A good day of work in the bog would sort them out @Ambrose_McNulty


#90

Sign me up, pal.

#91

That’s the job.

A day in the bog is savage strength and conditioning training (cc @caoimhaoin). Although it could fuck your back like cross fit or whatever the current craze is


#92

Generally physical work is far better than S&C.

Its micro dosing of strength. The ideal way to do it.


#93

Unrale. Our resident sports conditioning expert has endorsed a bit of farming and bog work for gains. Sign in @Tassotti - a month at home on the farm in Clare will have you in peak condition for your ultra running exploits


#94

gyms are for townies, full of lads who think they are fit and strong, fuckers wouldn’t run a bath and have no stamina


#95

When i was building timber frame in Oz and playing Aussie Rules and doing 2 gym sessions a week (as opposed to 4/5 now) i was an absolute animal.

There is nothing better thsn that work. Not to mention being outside.


#96

@Tassotti
those fuckers drinking creatine in a gym wouldnt last 5 minutes as a hod carrier in kilburn


#97

A 7 month old calf got caught in a feeding barrier on Saturday, he couldn’t get through it so I had to push him back the way he came. Ould fella was gone so i had to set upon the task on my own.

I assume a deep squat positon, engaged my core and drove up under his front legs with my right shoulder. I thought he might eat the ear off me Tyson style as i forced him back through the galvanised steel but he played along and give an almighty roar as he fell back in his hind legs upon successful exit. I had to sit down for a few minutes after it.

You’d never get that sort of a work out in a bog standard gym.


#98

Did you throw him in the boot of the car then when you were finished?


#99

You get a better class of calf on the mainland though


#100

Great story pal and glad all lived to tell the tale. Any chance you could move this to the farming thread so we don’t upset the townies any more?
