Banksy vandalised?

Posted: 14/10/2014 at 13:15

In Camden, there had been a piece for around many years on the canal by an artist called King Robbo. Banksy painted over it to use it as the background for one of his pieces. King Robbo was suitably offended and doctored the Banksy piece along with 2 others that Banksy had done in the area. Safe to say by the tit for tat attacks on each other's work that followed Banksy did not see the funny side of his work being touched. Hypocrite of the highest order

Sub 3:30 Stevenage Marathon 2 November

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.

first half marathon lots of people passing out, is that normal??

A lot of casualties at Ealing half on Sunday too, one pretty serious near the finish - unseasonably warm weather and lots of 'undulations' maybe catching people out. Not exactly the challenge of a marathon but still a reminder to respect the distance.

He was in cardiac arrest and they were giving him CPR when I went passed -  not nice to see. I've read he's ok but genuinely feared the worst.

I've spoken to 2 friends that did Nottingham and both commented on the attrition rate but doubt it came close to Hackney where there were fallers everywhere - horrible experience.

There have been a few fatalities this year (Reigate and Southend spring to mind) and I do think it's at least partially down to the relatively warm summer that we've had this year. But I think people under estimate the demand of running a half, for most people it's around 2 hours and that isn't easy. Also as a cyclist, I think runners race fueling is stuck in the dark ages

I've read on facebook that this years smurf is Iron Man and that they are landing any day now. No idea if there's any truth or not!

Yeah but I have just rejoined it at week 11.  Missed out weeks 7,8,9 and 10.  I'm not getting in an argument 2wheels. just letting people know what I'm doing.

I'm not getting in an argument either. Good luck. I mean what can possibly go wrong

By the way I am still on this 3:30 plan and the 20 miles/3 hours yesterday was part of that.  

Well no you aren't because you've just said

Running was going well up to the 6 week mark then I had 4 weeks with just 4 runs(Shoreham 10k, 2 x 10 milers and a 16 miler). 

 If you've barely ran for a month you clearly aren;t still on your plan

Yeah that picture is fairly representative, the subways tend to have gradual approaches rather than anything too steep.

Do you think its unfair when RW ban you just because they dont like a thread?

I'm intrigued also, 2wheels.

I mean, a few years back I tentatively ventured on here and for simply supporting a women who wondered where some posters found the time to run 50 miles per day (they were lying through their teeth) was hung drawn and quartered.

Now all we have is Kittenkat getting upset and its armageddon.

It's the last sentence that sums it up. Isn't this all a bit pathetic? There are several egos on this forum far more interested in shooting others down and winning at a sad metaphorical willy waving in a never ending cat fight like it's your own little club. The post says it all is the 4th one almost celebrating this sort of crap as better than newbies who might dare to talk about running!
