Hi Samir, no I was the female taking the pic of you. The one on the right is "the real Mr I"  Was great to meet you all and hopefully see you again soon,

02/03/2014 at 21:55

I believe that was the real Mr I, who regenerates more than you do.  Jindalee is female and may have taken the photo?

Well Samir, if SG gave you a lift afterwards and comes away saying you are a top bloke, then you're alright with me and I'm glad to see you've come on here (again bravely) after the event sounding a bit more like the real you we are told about than the thread you.

Onwards and upwards Samir - keep your dreams alive, but do so with renewed humility, and the understanding that most people on here want to help you stand on their shoulders to try and reach them, no matter how old and cynical they may sound at times!

Race Jase has put it well in his last post as a good summary....

02/03/2014 at 22:05

ok,..i've got another video for you( promise it will be my last one!) it was also taken at mile one but a bit longer than Mr I's, so you might spot more familiar faces


Here it is

watching that clip, good to see all the faces. Dachs and Crispy level at mile 1. Me overtaking a local female top dog, Samir, looking a little worse for wear.

What does strike me though, is how non fast everyone looks! I guess we're more used to watching sprints and faster sports.

Keep your chin up Samir. We all have bad days at the office. Once had a talk from Dame Kelly Holmes saying that there will be many more downs than up through your running career and it's so true. Keep going (and join a club).

Also think someone said I was running, which I wasn't. Was at the Mad Stad though and enjoyed watching the event!

Evening all. Have just finished a marathon read-back after getting home from Reading. Was lovely to meet Samir, Mr I and Jindalee today, who are all excellent people in real life, and to catch up with Stevie G. And also to get a massive PB, of course. But in the interests of full disclosure I should point out that it was 1:24 and 52 seconds. I can't quite bring myself to present this as just 1:24. But am still very happy about it.

Don't let it get to you Samir! Your next race will be better.

Scot - stop being an arse. Samir has had a tough day and has come on here with a new and improved attitude (let's hope it stays) yet all you can do is try and pick him up on every single thing he has ever said on this thread. Oh, and of course you still have to talk about your training plan too don't you. Give the lad a break. 

Samir - good effort yesterday, well done. Onwards and upwards......

03/03/2014 at 06:04

Carter - give scott a break - there was only a couple of Hampshire results mentioned. That is a Hampshire personal worst tally. 

03/03/2014 at 06:16

StevieG - what book did you recommend?

03/03/2014 at 07:02
An improved attitude which im glad about.

I'm not talking about my training plan at all I was making a point about structure and training which he needs

Of course a lot of you fail to see what a joke this has become and it was bound to be nothing near his claims !
People believe anything

03/03/2014 at 07:20 have been very vague about your injury....

 between the runners here they have probably had virtually ever injury known to man over the years


so unless you are going to go to a sports specialist physio.....

can you give some details about your injury,.

 when did it start..where exactly is the it a sharp pain or a dull pain........does it hurt when you walk ...does it hurt in normal life or when there anything that you do that makes it worse or better.....example.stretching it , prodding it,jumping up and down etc.....

In my experience doctors never really know about running inuries instead they refer you to a physio. Check out if there is a physio local to you that comes recommended, sure it may cost half hour consultancy but you'll likely get moving a bit quicker.

Lit - super PB , nice one!

03/03/2014 at 07:54
My point seren!! Very very vague! As with past injury claims!

I said about getting referred through a Doctor or going to see someone and paying. I wouldn't hesitate after being that injury ridden

No one is giving Samir a hard time and I was there to say about a fresh start I just hope

1)injury is not used as an excuse for the next few months for performance unless he gets seen and diagnosis. No excuse not to see someone
2)no more silly claims about running 45 min 10 milers this year - be real about ability, we can all dream but running pavement PBS to this....just no
3) joins a club or at least takes advice or look into better training methods
4) doesn't insult anyone the way he has done (banter or not)

A lot of us have met you now Samir! After I met you, within the month you were insulting me and making silly claims again, let hips it doesn't happen to everyone else on here - granted I may give you a rougher ride but I'm just very real and don't hesitate to point things out that are raising questions where as some people one day take one thing you say and the next believe the same contradiction

We all wish you the best as a runner and hoping the injury clears / back to running well soon

Part of life/running - as Johnny said taking lows with highs and for the mean time there are going to be more lows very true!!
03/03/2014 at 07:56
And the week building upto reading after I posted all his silly claims to reflect on I switched to say about how reading would be a stepping stone

Either way its main focus is what will he do after - we all knew 1:14 was never going to happen and the claims are largely bullshit

Here's to a fresh start Samir !

No running today either chap!

Lit. Super PB. Under 1 25 is a great achievement. 

03/03/2014 at 08:29

Scott, in fairness, you do seem to have it in for Samir. When you slatted him for blagging a freebie (which was, admittedly, cheeky with a 80min HM, but if you don't ask, you don't get), I pointed out that I had blagged one with a 72min HM, which you conveniently ignored and continued to slate him, but not me?

Samir - some people seem to speak well of you after meeting you yesterday, so do yourself a favour and take advantage of that instead of needlessly shooting your mouth off and insulting people.

I will add that I saw Samir warming up, and again at about 12m and in both cases he was running very lopsided, so I don't doubt that there is some injury (or he has got a god-awful running style - not sure which number though ).

Having said that Samir it was stupid of you to start if you were that injured, and even more stupid to try lead. If you want to find your limits in running you need to pay attention to your body; all the positive thinking in the world will not allow you to bend it to your will.

As an example, I was, originally, due to start from the elite pen, but I was in bed sick most of the week, so I had a chat with the organisers and got a number for a different pen instead (I like a freebie if I've (semi) earned it, but I won't take the p!ss) and paced my little brother at a much slower pace instead. It was frustrating, but it was the right thing to do.

Hopefully you will start to take a more sensible approach now.

03/03/2014 at 08:36

I can also confirm that Samir was running a bit lopsided when I caught up with him at around 10.5 miles, but had plenty of breath left to run alongside me and chat, except that clearly I couldn't do that as I was running at (my) flat-out half PB pace, so he let me go on ahead. So certainly injury rather than knackeredness, but I do hope he will go to a physio as I suggested about 400 pages ago.
