2 observations:

The pints are light in Mendip - but then again missing out on the 68ml of cider is probably beneficial to the overall health benefits of the regime.

Are bonus points awarded if the brown bath bomb bubbles up out of the neck of your wetsuit?

Love the keep fit regime.
Could add a Northern Dales Maze Cave one....

Have a massive Full English Breakfast then crawl round a crazy paved patio for an hour using the cracks for direction. When exhausted open five bottles of Theakstons Old Peculiar and collapse in a heap.
I have a plan so cunning you could pin a tail on it and call it a Weasel.

Wrong, the exercise is given a a "500g weight". Based on my beermat mathematics1, a pint of ~90% ethanol solution would be the equivalent of 500g2.

ABV 90% is what Mendippers call a "session scrumpy".

2.Obviously this doesn't include the 335g weight of the standard nonic pint glass itself but who's counting?

That's right, it's a footnote.

So they must be square feet.
