I expect those three were gutted to have finished behind DF3 and are having to go through a period of extensive counselling to get over their shame.

I cant even be bothered with excuses except for one.

Time taken 6:23 (yes thats not a typo)

first 10 miles around 1.40. last 16 miles 4.43.

and now I probably need a new knee lol.

but the 16 odd miles i hobbled along gave me time to reflect on how long a marathon is and hiw utterly pointless it is. the irony is the first 10 miles had all the hardst hills as well.

I'll post the garmin when i get to a computer. and yes puffy i will be donating 50 quid to your charity but i'll do it tomorrow. tonight me and my knee are going to have a little cry.


David well done on your PB!

Karen that is quite possibly the most sensible thing I've seen you post in a while.

I was going to say at least you beat my wifes time when she walked the route of the London Marathon in her bra for the moonwalk...however she did it in 6 hrs dead, dont suppose telling you you were within half an hour of her time will make you feel much better will it?

If I could be bothered I'd dig up the ancient post where DF3 says he would finish in the 'top half of any given field' and quote it properly.

Isn't it the only way you would get a medal David F3 ?

lolz ........ actually I would probably be in the top half of any given field, hence why Im bringing this up now and not say 6 months ago

08/05/2013 at 14:57

That's the one. Perhaps in the light of recent results he will change the rules so that everyone who didn't finish in the bottom 3 gets a medal.

Great stuff

This thread has been a quite entertaining read!

DF3 don't fancy your chances of anywhere near 18 mins if your not prepared for some serious pain and discomfort in your trg sesions.

Can't remember the number of times I was sick trying to get my mile and a half (2.4k ish) time under 8:30, before that I used to really enjoy interval trg, not so much now 

Give me a nice gentle trundle through the countryside for a couple of hours any day!

I bet I could beat him, and I'm shit.

08/05/2013 at 19:34

I could beat him and I'm almost a pensioner ! 

08/05/2013 at 19:39

I could beat him and I've just been poisoned to death by my dog trumping right beside me. 

08/05/2013 at 19:50

In most races he enters just about everybody does beat him.

I still think we might be falling into some sort of trap this is so easy

08/05/2013 at 20:15

Perhaps he should join a walking group. Although he prob wouldn't beat them either. 

08/05/2013 at 20:24

There was a speed walker at MK finished around 5:15 way to quick for DF3

08/05/2013 at 20:26

Ah, booktrunk, you are to DF3 as Stevie G is to DVD.

08/05/2013 at 20:27

Ironically, if he'd had a structured run/walk from the start, which would have been sensible given the injury and lack of training, he probably would have saved himself at least an hour of pain.

one contestant off The Biggest Loser finished a mara in 5 hours - being that big and in that heat, couldnt have been nice but he would have still beat DF3 by over an hour!

Just as an experiment, when doing my interval training last night, I decided to do the 'rest' phases at a pace of 14.618 minutes per mile.
