Dave..it will be cleverer than you run/walking 26 miles........

and 2 years ago when i got my marathon PB i miscalculated a route and did a 27 miler in training....i definitely think that going long is the way forward.....so wasn't suprised that the brighton group decided to believe you.......only problem is that they didn't know that you are not capable of running that distance.......

anyway.no running for me today.....did you manage to get out in the fine weather Dave

I managed to get out at 6am to do 6 miles.....

I know someone who runs 100 mile races, and does so for GB

he has to master 15 first

Just my opinion of course DF3, but I do chat a lot about running and know a lot of guys who have done marathons.

From my view of it, they've all picked up injuries along the way, and some afterwards. A couple I've seen pretty much have the next 9-12months written off, and one of the guys was progressing like a freight train before hand.

Newbies especially seem obsessed with them. They'll crack out an ok 10k, then a pretty slow half marathon, and for some reason they don't view the next step as improving those times, but instead see a marathon as the natural progression.

Typically they'll crank out a miserable slow marathon that they're ridiculously undertrained for at best, and risk injury at worst.

Why not save a marathon for years in when you have a good fitness base, and have quicker times at other distances? The whole thing will be more pleasurable, for those that way inclined.

That'll do for marathon talk for now.

Aside from the comedy. Yeah totally agree with yon Stevie. Was running 3 years before my first marathon and eight years before my second.

Ah yes, it's the neolithic marathon. Still, same as, he won't manage 4:30.

'he' has a name Mikasa!


He has a name, that we shall not speak...

Sussex, I'm afraid I don't know who Clarice Starling is? Do I need to google it?

And I'm afraid it is me, not some Russian hotty...

You'll tell us next that you're not actually from any exotic climes with the fetching accent, but instead are from Bermondsy 


DF3, swimming and cycling do give you extra opportunities. Extra opportunities to be average at other sports

I find running becomes less boring the more into it you get. I was once like you...chatting stuff on here for the effect.

Why do I get the impression that Mikasa is about to get a lot of private emails from Stevie G and Sussex Runner lol.

(and who knows , maybe Rickster will throw his hat into the ring! (so to speak))


she might do if the RW clowns would fix them!!

27/03/2013 at 20:58

I'd have already met her I'm sure, as such women would stand out like an Aussie on a running forum

27/03/2013 at 21:16
I will leave Makisa to contact me first. I'm not a women chaser y'know !!
27/03/2013 at 22:04

Gosh, didn't realise my pic was that good! Maybe it's because it's so small you can hardly see it...

Anyways, lets get back to the point.

27/03/2013 at 22:33
Love that you're playing it so cool. You little minkski

You mean there is a point to this thread?  

28/03/2013 at 10:31

Mikasa, the pic isn't that great, but amongst a bad lot on this site you stand out a mile

DF3, Sussex, back over to you, and picking out stuff on the Brighton thread so we don't have to
