Jeepers - im off to another thread now to chat about under water basket weaving

Great!  Funnily enough, that's a hobby of mine, can't find the thread though, do post a link as I'd love to join in too.

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.....

I'm currently forty one. Hopefully next year I will be forty two, unless I start to regress...

   Not at all Minni. It's so not about the personal times you are clocking - its about engaging and sharing.Jane - That's what I'm saying I DO engage and share and have been welcomed into the sub 3.15 group even though I have only have a 3.31 pb!

Jeepers - that is a fair point and one that i clocked yesterday when i had a look at the 3.15 thread. So noted! That being said it is the Super Six thread so top of mind...
The 3:15 thread has been an absolute gold mine these last couple of year, and the good thing about it is that it's such a friendly bunch of people that the runners who are now aiming even faster (some of them trying for sub 2:45) still stick around so you get the benefit of those who've done it, not just those who are trying to do it. Matchstick Man was the Super Six 3:15 runner last year, and his posts have been brilliant, and there are several others who've really given this running lark a lot of thought and are good at writing about it. I've been on this thread a couple of years now, and finally got my sub 3:15 at Brighton this year, and the regular posters defintely helped me get there.

It's possible, I've been doing it for years, I'm even back at the point of dribbling and finding words like 'bum' and 'willy' funny.

Don't give up hope.

AL - another Chai Latte fan   I ate a Tesco ham sandwich with some pretzels and a bit of couscous.  Was gagging for a hot drink but thankfully spotted the coffee bar when we went up to the treadmill

Hi BOTF - totally agree with you. The tread keeps me going too and the banter on there is great.
We don't talk about running all the time!

Would you swap the Knight Rider car for the Batmobile?

I once had to help my mate fit a carpet for a bloke called Richard Seaman. When he uttered the immortal words "Call me Dick", I nearly wet myself...

It's a shame that we got the carpet in through the front door - if he'd said "It won't go in that way, why don't you try to get it in up my back passage?" I think I'd have lost the plot.

+ 2. it's a brilliant thread and the folk on there are incredibly knowledgeable, witty, kind and very supportive. Like BOTF it has helped me far beyond what I expected it would at the outset (I joined it nearly 2 years ago) . When I have done a race or a training session that I'm pleased with, I cant wait to tell them about it. The fact that I've been able to share so many of their journeys as well has been the most special. Just join it, everyone's welcome!

JUst worked out why I didn't make the short list then...

  I ate the all day breakfast sandwich - they must have spotted that!!!

But after getting dizzy running round a track so many times I needed something to settle my stomach.

And I agree I needed a hot drink too but wasn't bright enough to spot the coffee shop! DOH

Nope. Prefer Kitt any day. That interior looks so futuristic.
