did anyone see this article on MSN last week


a few people bought it to my attention- I am beginning to get paranoid now!

whoops cant post the URl as I havent made enough posts!

anyway it was an article by bbc last week which was saying quote

' Some 9.5 million British women could be irreversibly damaging their busts by exercising without a proper sports bra, the Portsmouth University team said.

They found breasts moved in a 3D figure of eight and that uncontrolled movement strained fragile tissues and ligaments.

The study suggested as a woman runs a mile, her breasts bounced 135m.


made me laugh thinking about how the scientists would have measured it!!!

However, Rich has offered to hold them for me while I run


...and no, they aren't detachable :rolleyes:

I wonder what gravity does to a wobbly stomach? does it end up slapping on your knees after a few years of running unsupported?

I have also read that you should buy 3 new sports bras for every new pair of trainers.

Does anybody know more about this?

Well my sports bra is so snug it's like armous casing and believe me NOTHING moves!!lol!!!

Just to cheer you up even further I have also read that running after a certain age will just drag your face down and make you look older than you are....I guess at 43 I'm that age...oh well...at least I'll have a fit body even if I look like an old hag!
