ah David, the problem with aiming for times is there's always another target just round the corner.

eg, my last half, I had my own pb to beat, but then over a 20-30second range I had about 4 or 5 other rivals, or significant figures I also wanted to beat!

Good luck in your aims...I want you to sneak the 3rd target, just so more of us can offer up new targets

Well, I did already offer him a secret target, but he doesn't get to know what it is until he beats it.

it's peeing in the wind trying to predict it, as we don't really know the weekly training, paces etc.

He might be hustling us all and smash 1hr 40

I actually think I would find that even more amusing than if he limps in at 2:05 or something. Maybe I'm just too nice?

Young David first tried to emerge as a bit of a tearaway on this forum, but he doesn't really have the nasty streak to do it. Also, he talks about running too much, which the most successful spambots on this site don't.

So i'd find it quite glorious if he suddenly emerges as a fast runner, and keeps it all running related!

I've got another target for you DF3.

Be faster than your girlfriend by 5 minutes
