I love the Lake District, its beautiful up there. And there are walks around Windermere that are not difficult at all.

Twink are you me? Tell me more about yourself cos we is sooooo alike!
It sounds like my idea of hell TBH. I don't get these team buidling things. What's wrong with cocktail making or a spa day?

The company assistants had their off site in March, went to Copenhaagen for the weekend which was hotel / spa / lunches / dinners and shopping. This is our Team one which is made up of 9 blokes, 4 girls and a chick with a ***

The team building part is the collective hatred that the non sporty members of the team feel for the gung ho sporty ones as they romp up the hills
When we were first going out, me and H went to the Lake District with H's super sporty friends. They took us on a hike up one of the hills round Derwentwater. The first part was really steep and I had eaten way too much bacon and eggs for breakfast so was really feeling it We were then overtaken by a group of hill runners who zoomed past me as I puffed and panted and stopped every too minutes to look at the view I was very unfit at the time and they were clearly super fit as they barely stopped running even on the really steep bits.

I'll wait in the pub for them.

Ha that is way out of my comfort zone, finding footwear would be enough to put me off. Definitely wait in the pub!

Do you have to go?
20/06/2013 at 16:46
No I don't have to go but I'm new here so kinda have to if that makes sense?
20/06/2013 at 20:19
Yeah I guess so. Its a shame its nothing you would really enjoy though, cant you suggest anything? I bet you would enjoy it once you got going. Got any fit blokes you could *** ogle on the hike?! lol

Isn't there a bar or coffee shop you could go to whilst they play at sports. I honestly couldn't think of a worse way to spend my time. Are they all very sporty? Seems like they haven't catered for everyone.
When we went to Barcelona everyone wanted to go to gaudis cathedral, but me and gbf found a nice coffee shop and had coffee and pastels and a nice chat, much nicer than trudging round a half built cathedral

Not my cup of tea either! I have dodgy knees so at least I would be able to use that excuse! Hope they decide to do something else x

Can you tell them that you have asthma or something......a severe allergic reaction to sport. I can't see you with a cag in a bag somehow.
Seriously I'd hate it, get a cab to the finishing line of the walk and find yourself the nearest pub to wait for them all in.
