No actually.  I prefer the new you though.

Samir -

I text and emailed my old coach today..his athlete came 6th today (chip time said 7th oops)

He is off to New Mexico altitude training and has sent me some sessions in the last 10 minutes - he has some involvement with team GB and some of the group he coaches run for GB ..this is why you need structure or a coach - not saying these will make me better (they may not) but it's a plan and proper training - surely an advantage .. I'm putting myself out there to try improve

Scott, any running you do will bring you on because you haven't really done any yet. Oh and stop being an arse. Again. Please.

Samir, well done for finishing. Probably a bit of a nincompoop for starting but never mind.

Well done others. Particularly Lit, cracking PB.

I realise that any (most) running I do will improve me

The sessions will be much more quality than the 3 variations I'm am doing. May bring me on quicker.. Aim will be to start increasing mileage after Eastleigh too

And I'll stop race jase - got a wisp of the haddadities

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?

02/03/2014 at 22:00

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. 

02/03/2014 at 22:51
Don't let it get to you Samir! Your next race will be better.

Hi Literatin. Was great to meet you today. . And very well done on you PB!

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

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