I just re read this whole thread earlier gideon, and I clearly did take on much of the advice given and did readjust my targets accordingly.  My training wasnt perfect but not absymal.  Really wish I could have do pne the run today.

I reckon if I did the run in, say 3:59, or even4:05, people would be still claiming victory regardless of how happy I was with the result.  I cant wait for Brighton 2015.

You should look at the msp posted by Nayan. You are still somewhere on that river if you actually believe you took any advice on board. Your training was too hard for your current fitness (at the time).
Hopefully you will be fitter and wiser for Brighton.

I ran the half today and apart from the marshalls and police cadets who were great supporting the runners in those wet conditions I wasn't that impressed

What happened to the portaloos, were they stolen or did the race organiser forget to order more than 2?

Gideon: I can't see the point of bickering if the man didn't even make the starting line due to illness.

Basher: Not sure 'people' would be claiming any sort of victory, actually. Honestly I think 'people' have bigger fish to fry.

Nayan- I'm just amazed at the continuing lack of understanding/admission about where he went wrong. After all we do not know if he was dick or just knew he'd be nowhere near his proposed time/s.
I wanted him to do well. I want everybody to do well. Hence trying to help.

Well If we're splitting haits its not clear that he would've succeeded or failed with his revised goal. He got ill and didn't start so we'll never know. That's the official version anyway.

Either way I can think of better things to get annoyed about.

The hardest part of a marathon is getting to the start line.

I concur TimR.
Nayan. I'm not annoyed, nor trying to bicker. But sometimes you have to remind people of the good advice that they received and then ignored. Yourself, Millsy, literatin to name a few advised that the approach was wrong. Claiming that overtraining had nowt to do with the DNS just shows the same crazy attitude that amazed everybody all along.
Hopefully the lesson has been learned and the posts we see are just male bravado.

You've reminded him a good 3 or 4 times now. 

Well done you.

Hey thanks. Tough love is where it is at in adult sport.

i''m not annoyed, nor trying to bicker. 

be honest with yourself.  You are annoyed and you are bickering,  adult sport ffs you are blatantly on the wind up.


04/11/2014 at 16:36
Nah- not on the wind up. Just disappointed for you and for this thread. I wanted a happy ending.
04/11/2014 at 17:00
In the adult world there are very few happy endings.

Although I can recommend a very good masseuse.
