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

I'm not perfect, but I find myself twitching at the grammar errors over there.  What is a "toilet brake"?

27/03/2013 at 12:59
Toilet brake ? Where you slow down suddenly for a crap ?

Toby talking about his pace "not shore what to aim for". The shore near the finish maybe?

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

27/03/2013 at 17:06
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.

Ok, he's a prat, but a very rich one.

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

'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.
