PS it kind of freaks me out when you call me Katy.

I don't know why.

No one else does on here.

Cue the entire RW forum community starting to call you "Katy", Katy.

Well done today

30/01/2010 at 20:54

Thanks Basil. (I'm having you on my tea tonight by the way ha)

Don't call me Katy.

Oh all right. Being as you asked so nicely 'n' all.

You're having Basil Brush on your tea? Cruelty to foxes, shurely?

Well the last thing I would want to do is freak you out, man, but I actually think you put your name up yourself, perhaps when you were the Next Great Milestone?   And if you post your races and times the way you do, you are making that information available to quite literally any person in the world with an internet connection

And you can hardly complain about people using your name when you put photos of yourself on here-not just running photos- and make it bloody obvious where you live and run.

I tried to go back and edit it out of courtesy but it's too late now.

Can I keep you calling you D2D? Katy doesn't sound right.



30/01/2010 at 22:06
Well as Basil is calling Katy/D2D/TNGM Shirley and Shirley/Katy/D2D/TNGM is eating Basil for dinner, i'm sure you can call her what you like Phil/Philis...I think

Well done D2D ... 21:30 is very good ... along way from sub-20 (and I still think your mapmyrun distances are way out) but still a good time. My PB is 21:25 ... I feel sub-20 is a long way off for me.

OK, Katy it is! The best way to get people to do something in a chat room like this, is to tell them not to!

Can't you run with a garmin GPS? Your "guessed distance" boasts and "map my run distance" boasts have both been proved wrong. GPS boasts would be fine - had you boasted about a 21 minute 5k rather than a sub 20 5k, it would have been perfectly defendable.

AND you could see how you were improving, and tailor your training. For the mileage you do, you should be going under a 3 hour marathon. No need for a schedule, but better feedback data might be useful!
31/01/2010 at 10:32
Well done D2D, that's a good time.  My first 5k was a little faster than that, and I did go on to sub-20 4 times.  So keep going.  I do still think your training routes are not accurate though.

May I suggest that D2D and Mr Puffy define the exact terms of their bet? Is the winner going to be the person who takes the most minutes of their mara time or the one who makes the biggest percentage improvement?

edited - of course, if you current times are very similar it will be one and the same!

Are you a business systems analyst slugsta? Good call!

Best thing would be the biggest % improvement in WAVA.

I have met Mr P and lets just say D2D has a few years on him

No, JB, I'm a humble nurse - but am used to looking critically at research statistics.
31/01/2010 at 11:25

Correct me if i'm wrong, but i believe i read that D2D's time is 3:45, and puffys is 3:46, so theres really no difference.

31/01/2010 at 11:32

But 3:45 for a male of mature years and 3:46 for a young female are different when you adjust for age and sex?

You're comparing apples and oranges innit.

31/01/2010 at 12:53

I agree, but not if you go by London good for age places,

Women 18-49  sub 3.45

Men        41-59  sub 3.15!!!

31/01/2010 at 12:58

The London GFA qualification time for older blokes is a joke, innit?

31/01/2010 at 13:02

The london quali time for all ages is a joke!

I'm looking forward to being 70.... in 34 yrs time...

31/01/2010 at 13:15
The difference in GFA times between males and females is skewed - should be no more than 20 minutes to be "fair".
It's based on numbers, not comparative difficulty.
31/01/2010 at 13:20

Well, the original wager was simply based on time, because our pb's are very similar, but I don't mind either way, I am happy to leave that up to D2D?  I am 48, I have the heart and lungs of a 25 year old and the liver of a corpse.

31/01/2010 at 13:38
I hope the 25 year old didn't mind you taking them!
