Hey Ho Let's Go! Vegan removed from runner's world cover

Jenny, you appear to be confusing the promotion of your 'lifestyle choice' with the real issue here. That is, the attempt to profit financially from being on the cover of runners world magazine.

I would just like to point out that for some people being a vegan isn't a lifestyle choice.

Bad performance

Road to nowhere, don't worry about a bad run. It's not as if you can only do it Once in a Lifetime.

Wise words form Philomena, the thing about a poor race is that you can always try it again next year. I can use the example of the half marathon I'm doing on Sunday. For various reasons, it has been a total disaster on both previous attempts. At least if you know where you went wrong you can rectify it next time.

Try not to dwell too much on the disappointment of the result, but focus on the next challenge. I mentally consign a race to history as soon as I have picked up my bag and put my finishers medal in it. I have found that it's the best way to get over a poor performance.



Banksy vandalised?

I remember seeing a picture where Banksy had graffitied over a Damian hirst spot painting, which I thought was amusing. It would be sad If Banksy couldn't see the irony in someone doing the same to one his own works. Even if it has been done in a rather crude way.

would this training plan work?

Scottish Nocturnal Bear, your reply to my post suggests that this thread is about getting some sort of validation about your 'wacky' training idea, giving you the justification to implement it. Ignoring any feedback from other posters on using a sensible training plan. The time for experimenting is after you have gained some experience. You can then adjust your training to what suits you.

As has already been said, the idea of training for a sub 2hr half marathon, by doing a 1:50 half marathon is madness. So is a training plan based on what an elite athelete may have done in order to break a world record.
