I really dont see what Belsen has to do with anything about running or training in general........ I think thats rather cruel, maybe the person that quoted that needs to think himself/herself lucky that they were'nt there at that terrible time in history, coz if they were I dont think they would have the same sense of humour, coz it's not big or clever...... these people suffered to save people like myself......... in that I will always be eternaly grateful!!!!!!!!!!!!
No they suffered because of Nazi kultur, but you won't know what that means.
How come La Da S€...... or wotever your name is finished a Marathon an hour slower than your estimated time??......... maybe you should concentrate on hitting your targets rather than commenting on people who sacrificed their lives in Belsen........ dickhead
Because 3:30 was an over estimation of my ability. I have virtually no natural talent in any form of sport.
Way behind me sunshine
And at 1:39 for a half marathon you're 39 minutes behind Mo Farah, your point is?
Gets very bitchy this site and I aint overly keen on it to be perfectly honest........ igot accused of being a titan a few weeks ago, wot the hell does titan mean?????...... to many knobs that think they know better than anyone else.
And another point........ I wish people would stick to the point of the original thread, instead of going off on a tangent regarding other subjects, i.e. Belsen........
Why dont we all start talking about politics for instance?...... absolute bollox
Yes I apologise for that, I always make the same mistake of assuming that everyone can make simple correlations and has a basic knowledge base, I'd hate to patronise anyone ;p
Nice comment...... I didnt know that so I have learnt something today
The thread title is how to wean yourself off snacks and eating crap, however if you'd read the op's opening post it says he wants to lose weight. There are enough slim runner's on here to give testament that there's nothing wrong with eating some calorie laden "junk", it's all about moderation and context.
Yes many of those in Bergen-Belsen came from slave labour camps, but it wasn't the hard labour that made them thin, with adequate nutrition hard labour makes you strong.
It was a simple lack of calories.
