The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    uk meet in Newcastle - Fri Oct 3rd and Sat Oct 4th.

    Hey,

    Fran (FAngel) and I and are going to be visiting Rob (The Chicken Daddy) in October, so I thought it would be cool if we can get as many uk wbb peeps together as possible and make a weekend of it?

    This would be in Newcastle.

    What I am thinking is to stay the nights Friday Oct 3rd and Saturday Oct 4th. Personally I would prefer to stay somewhere around the 50 a night mark (3 star accommodation). This would give us a single en suite room, with satellite tv, pretty nice etc. If the majority would prefer to stay in cheaper accommodation (I know we have a few students out there!) then thats cool. Ill find something a bit cheaper. However I need to know the number of people who are going to definitely be coming as its pretty hard to find a place with a lot of rooms at short notice. Obviously it would be cool if we all stayed in the same place.

    Basically you would be looking at the following costs

    - 2 nights accommodation (60 or 100 in total depending on the type of accommodation we can get. Set aside 100 though)
    - Friday and Saturday nights activities. (Whatever we decide to do, but I propose we spend them drinking and checking out the night life! Anyone that moans about a diet will get laughed at.)
    - Traveling up to Newcastle and back (depends on where you are coming from, I will leave that to you)

    Fran and I are going to be driving from Cambridge to Newcastle. We might be able to pick up 3 people who are on course.

    So what it comes down to is we need to know who will be coming 110% by Friday 22nd September. This is so I can find a good place to stay and know how many rooms we will need. I will either book on my card after receiving payment from people or just give people the details to book themselves once I have found a suitable place which will hold all of us.

    Please can only uk people reply to this thread.

    To confirm you are coming please pm me and let me know so I can record who is coming

    Cheers

    Daniel

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    p.s how far away is newcastle from london?
    About 400 miles.

    "careful round cowgate , if you drive too slowly they'll reach in and steal your ears"
    Too true. I have to get off my bus after work at Cowgate roundabout and walk home up to the West Road. My gym is in Cowgate too. Beautiful estate it is...

    And Deano, if you think all the ladies bite you need your head checked. Like anywhere there are the few slappers, but a good majority of the females up here these days are top notch.

    If you can get to Stansted, Ill pick you up from there. I will be picking Fran up from Bishops Stortford. Be a bit of a nightmare to pick you up from London, but you should be able to get to Stansted pretty easy on the Stansded express from London.

    By train:
    Manchester Piccadilly - York 1h30min (ARRIVA Trains)
    York - Newcastle 1h (GNER)
    It costs about 47 (saver return, to Manchester Victoria)

    It takes from 3h 35min to more than 5h by coach. From 24 (return)

    If you have a car, it takes much less than 3 hours.

    If it's GNER then multiply that time by about three.
