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 !

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

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

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

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

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

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.

ppffffffffffff

Hi David - just had a chance to look at your Garmin times now - I'm curious - even though you were walking did you still hit the wall at 18/19 miles? If not why did your times suddenly jump out another 5 minutes?

Sorry if this has already been asked but your threads are so popular I will need to be sacked before I have time to read them all!!

My garmin is set to autopause if I drop below 14 min/mile as it thinks I've stopped.

Ah, do you not have 'Falconer Mode' on your Garmin then?

David, I have to say that if you initially came to this forum hoping that we would be bowled over by your amazing athletic ability, somewhere it has all gone horribly wrong
