I don't say you're not training, but really, you are NOT actually training as hard as everyone else.

Getting of the sofa and out the door can be hard, but it does not amount to TRAINING hard.

 

 

Give it a rest.  DF3 was on a wind-up in the first place, now you're trying to make a serious issue out of it.

But it's unlikely DF3 would be in the top 3 David's !

Let alone age group or over all

He's only just scraped in to the top 3 David Falconers.

Good grief, how old are you?  I bet you don't see that very often on the Telegraph message boards.

I don't need advice on my training but thanks for the offer, I appreciate it, im sure the advice would be useful and worth while, but i'm going to stick with my ironman personal trainer who understands where I've come from and what I've achieved and what I'm aiming for next

So we all appear to be in agreement... POSE running is the solution.

Eliist twaddle overload.

Training hard depends on your fitness, condition and experience. Most of us experienced runners could go out and breeze ten miles at a decent pace and hardly break a sweat. Someone new to the sport could go run three miles and feel like they've gone ten rounds with Mike Tyson mentally and physically. Training hard is an individual thing relative to that persons ability at the time.

My experience was the first few months of running were by far the hardest training I did. Not in terms of miles, or pace, but just gaining that basic fitness level and mental toughness. The hardest of my training runs since haven't battered me anywhere near as much as those runs did no matter how much effort and commitment I've put in.

Time take take off the elitist cap and open your eyes to the world. Not every runner is a top tier runner for what ever reason and that doesn't mean they aren't giving their all. The crap your spouting is the very thing that puts people off even trying our sport. People looking down their noses at others.

Kirsty -- This forum is full of tw*ts, smart arses, trolls, etc (and I'm not even including DF3 in that) and attacking newbies is their second sport... Welcome aboard

I wasn't looking down my nose, I was questioning Kirsty's opinion that she trains as hard as everyone else.  She can't KNOW how hard everyone else trains, so she's making a sweeping generalisation, and it was that I was taking her to task over.

I didn't say that she DIDN'T train hard, I just asked her how she knew what everyone else was doing, and what she was doing (which she didn't actually answer in the end).

I wonder if David behaves the way he does because he is so frustrated about his inability to ever satisfy a woman?

I would hazard a guess its more likely to be the case he can't even satisfy himself !

DF3 -- You have your comedy moments granted... But I wouldn't quit your day job... It gives you plenty of time to goof around online for a start

Why not run an event that has a cut off time for medals, like Comrades?, if you are so bothered about it?
19/02/2013 at 14:29
Or organise your own event? Stop talking, start acting!

If Kirsty thinks DF3 was being offensive then she probably shouldn't have mentioned her personal trainer :~}

David..you do not appear on the power of 10......so not much of a runner then......unless you had more than a single brain cell and that isn't your real name.........

19/02/2013 at 14:58

David only runs the first half of races so that he can get the feel of the event. Seren, please wait until later this year when he debuts and  will be up there on Po10. I am being careful in planning David's racing to maximise his PB and goody bag potential.

shame i won't be around on may 5th to watch him race.........i would love to see if he is as cocky and mouthy in real life........and if he can actually run more than a couple of miles.........
