Maybe do the equivalent height of Everest up a very short staircase....say 1000 reps, and because you've done it that way, you'll be mentally stronger, as well as proving once and for all you didn't make it up

Not done much climbing as such but I go up & down our stairs every day and went to the top floor of Harrods in the lift to get some altitude acclimatisation.  Any advice on how to climb higher still?

Get a job in the Facilities Management department of Harrods, then you'll be able to get access to the roof!

By a strange coincidence, I have also partaken in altitude training in Harrods.  There's a Sweatshop on the 4th (?) floor and it's where I went to try out my new Brooks ST Racers on the treadmill.  True story!

Use a bike.

I would probably still struggle to do it on a bike./

just a point to most of you I thought i already backtracked on most my times in a previous forum and apologised for coming off as big headed so they are most probably wrong becasue I was using a faulty sensor or whatever I found that the longer the runs got the more inaccurate they were or thats what my trainer told me after I gave them to him.. , but I know how fast i ran on that track for my 10k, and if your that interested I have been in contact with a few universities in Div 1/2 NCAA and they've helped me out a lot more than anyone else.. but it doesnt matter anymore to be honest lets say i was lieing the whole time for your satisfaction and I made it all up because I get kicks from posting fake times online obviously waht a f*cking idiot i am ..

Harry...just do a race somewhere, anywhere soon, post a good time, and everyone on here will suddenly become your best friend, and all doubt will erode.

Harry - last sentence is spot on. Glad you saw sense mate.

Harry, your trainer must be a pretty recent addition to your running, to not mention this before, as your other thread was also pretty recent and most people on there spotted the errors in seconds.  If he/she is recent, who gave your times to Div 1 / 2 NCAA universities?  You haven't posted any race times, so what's got them interested?

Please race, to put everyone out of their misery!  Then we can see an unbiased measurement of how good you really are.  There are plenty of other guys who have gone through this kind of 'abuse' and then either disappeared because it was justified, or come back and proven the forum wrong and themselves right.  Even if they haven't been quite as good as they thought, just getting out and proving their level and coming back to post it and where it can be verified has earned respect.

Unverifiable performances, whether genuine or fake, do not carry any weight.

As to addylad's comment about your last sentence being spot on, I wondered if he meant your whole post.  If you did get into an English speaking university I for one would assume it was for your sporting prowess, so I'd believe you then...

Personally, Lucky, I'd pity the guy who has to join the thread simply to comment on the thread, and not offer anything else, except a sidewise swipe at the OP that is exactly what the rest of the thread has already moved past.

Classic trolling, and it didn't take more than one post.

Goddamn, and I fell for it...

Ratzer, it's just Jokerman/Jack the Mack/One Eyed Undertaker, back again...yawn.

 He'll be banned tomorrow no doubt...again.

Fascinating stuff. When will we learn to stop getting excited that someone may be  amonsgt us with a genuine new talent. Even though I know it's coming I can't help but feel disppointed when it all turns out to be utter bollox.

On another point why do people feel the need to start cyberfights with cheap shot remarks. Bugger off LW and get a life.

Yifter... is that you??

Ratzer - anyone who comes on here and claims to have quality times without any proof will obviously be either a bit dim or looking for a reaction. For wasting our time we have every right to take the piss out of the OP. Don't complain about those who replied, complain about someone who is blatantly trolling. Anyone who offers sensible replies is just feeding the troll.
