I wouldn't presume to criticise your careful training regime; I've not run/done/completed a marathon before either. And I haven't even got magic trainers.

Admit it David - you're bricking it aren't you?

I believe the saying 'Ignorance is bliss' is the most apt when it comes to what I face in a months time

Ha, youre right ...... youre not worried are you Mr Puffy?

I imagine the people at Mr.P's charity are already deciding what to do with your donation....

I just phoned up my mum and asked her 'Do you think I can make it around in 4 and a half hours?'

She said 'David, I love you. I would give you my kidney if you needed one ....... but youre an idiot, you'll never do it.'

 

07/04/2013 at 19:53

Very sensible woman your mum.

07/04/2013 at 20:33

Wonder how fast your mum could do the marathon?

07/04/2013 at 20:34

I asked her, she said 'Not as fast as you, but probably faster than Poohbear.'

 

07/04/2013 at 20:47

Poor Poohbear! You'll be bringing SnowMaiden in next!

07/04/2013 at 20:50

Actually if things go tragically wrong for me in a month, I may need to start comparing times to Poohbear and Snowmaiden to justify not being the slowest marathon runner in the UK.

Don't worry, the London marathon will no doubt have some celebs running who didn't realise what distance the race is, and thought having a sandwich in the gym's cafe was adequate prep.

07/04/2013 at 21:05

Sandwich? Skinny latte surely?

So does everyone still have faith in my finely tuned training regime to pull this off???

11/04/2013 at 09:23

you'll get round, have a miserable time of it, boast about it on here, get loads of attention.

and so mission will be accomplished.

You must be doing something right, as you've already got a chap on another thread copying your "style" of posting.

11/04/2013 at 09:24

Haha spot on, on every single point there Stevie G.

Even including the 2nd point in the first sentence

Complete faith. Any more thoughts on the use of RunKeeper or something similar to track the performance?
