Basher there is no bullying. I think that it is more a reflection of people being slightly incredulous of your dismissal of pretty much all feedback and advice.
Anyway, good luck, I've dropped down to the half, 2 colds seperated by food poisoning saw me manage just a handful of runs in a 5 week period, So I took the decision that rather than carry on with where I should be I'll train to where I am. I'd rather run a decent half than destroy myself in my first marathon.
To me training is like a pyramid with the race being at the tip. Missing the odd session is no big deal, But miss too many and the structural integrity will fail.
