Suggestions welcome!

Had a few responses for the commandments of running but need more suggestions!

#1: Thou shalt not run so soon after eating

#2: Do not eat "banned substances" on the evening prior to a race ...Curry, Spicey Thai, etc (Iliketoast)

#3: Do not go out into the pouring rain for a run dressed like it is summer! (Kit)

#4: Do not run if you ate a hamburger 4 hours before... (Hilda)

#5: Do not run with children 7 years old... (Hilda)

#6: Thou shalt not run listening to music which is faster than your normal pace (or at least, you won't run for very long). (thanks Deege!)

#7: run while injured or sick (yay, v sensible Go Girl - and haven't we all done that!)

#8: run with very boring shoes on (Go Girl - v important and personally I like red shoes - they go faster)

#9: Fall into the habit of going for gentle jogs with the 4 yo on his bike, and then take his training wheels off - it becomes a speed session! (Tamyka)

#10: Thou shalt not do speed sessions over icy wooden bridges. (Aki)

#11: Thou shalt not run without gloves in minus 2 degrees (or minus anything for that matter! - Strewth)

#12: Thou shalt not run in the dark without a torch or headlamp off-road in the dark! (Strewth speaking from experience)

#13: Thou shalt not run on a Monday, the runner's day of rest (Tuggeranong Don)

#14: Never, ever run with twisted shoe laces! (Hmmm, something you've done Wobbly?)

#15: Thou shalt not forget to put copius amounts of bodyglide/vaseline on before long runs (I can so relate to that Hannah!)

#16: Thou shalt not attempt to engage in conversation with other runners while going up extremely large hills (Hannah)

#17: Do not run if you have an angry dog behind you (or run very very fast Stefano?!)

Well?!.....waiting......

Fall into the habit of going for gentle jogs with the 4-y.o. on his bike, and then take his training wheels off and think it will still be a gentle jog - it becomes a speed session!

Thou shalt not attempt a pit stop during a marathon while the television cameras are on thee.

Thou shalt not sing loudly and off key songs while pacing the 4 hour group in a marathon; songs thou composest as thou goest.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's garmin.

Though shalt wash out your fuelbelt bottles properly and thus remove any chance of water tasting like dishwashing liquid.
