Stationery store moves.
just one thing is bugging me this morning.............is that a number of the new posters are stating that they haven't posted before because they have nothing to add.........or that the are maybe intimidated by the wealth of experience and the experts on here....................
If you have read any thread for more than 5 minutes you will realise that they are maybe a handful of people on the forums who know wehat they are talking about......................the rest of us just try to support each other or just talk crap...........sometimes funny sometimes not.......
with the hundreds of threads going on here there must be something that you have something in common with..............
Please just don't think for a moment that the majority of us have a clue what we are talking about..
I echo that. I often feel inferior to those who can run a sub 40 10k or sub 1.30 half but I still put my neck out and ask for their advice and bore them with my efforts. I have learnt so much over the past few years through this forum and hope I have given something back in return.
I think that part of the problem lies in the fact that many of the newbie Super Sixers seem to be under the impression that they can / should only post on the Super Six threads. Perhaps RW Towers haven't made it sufficiently clear that the entire forum is open for everyone to join in and that Super Sixers should just post away, as any newbie to the forum would, on any thread that interests them, even if it's nothing to do with running / training or the competition.
You can engage and share on all threads.
I think one of the problems as well is that because so many of the Super Sixers are so new they perhaps don't realise the baggage attached to Super Six for more regular posters. It's very sweet that they can talk about "giving back" but I'm sure many of us are just rolling our eyes at some of the optimistic, if arbitrary, targets being set.
Whoops, it's probably too early in the morning to be a bitch.
Yep, Wobbled and the fact that quite a lot of us are already doing what the winners will be doing - one poster unfortunately didn't seem to realise this and put up some quite patronising comments, which I'm sure won't have helped.
Mind you, I do think that RW Towers should get this sorted out, it happens every year, so you think that they'd have learnt something by now.
I'm still voting for Charlie though.
PS Jane, some of the contenders who are already regular forumites are posting on all sorts of threads, nothing to do with running, training at all. Sparkly's posting on the Office Christmas Party thread, not a word of Super Six, etc has been mentioned at all!

He also does 2 words:
Williambloke - thanks for the response. If it's not a cheeky question - can I ask how old (or at least what age group !) you are - just thinking of the relevance for a sub 1.21 half ie knocking 8 or so minutes off your half time in one chunk. You're positivity and enthusiasm are impressive though I'm not sure it's entirely realistic ! Quite a tall order to improve HM time to that extent while effectively focussing on mara training IMHO but you never know.....
Let's hope any doubters (me included) are proved wrong and have to eat some serious humble pie
