is flat running much faster ?

Posted: 22/10/2014 at 02:48

Have you never wondered why courses that have lots of hills tend to not have runners finishing as fast those that are completely flat?

I mean not being funny, but this isnt a running question, its actually just about common sense.


Pain in the chest...

Posted: 21/10/2014 at 08:33

Given the time of year its probably unlikely, but I suffer from hayfever quite badly, and would be out for pretty much all of July into August from it. The thing is often I would get a really bad chesty cough, but even for a few weeks after the hayfever had gone, and I was feeling fine, if I went for a run that stubborn last chesty cough stuff (without getting graphic) would still be there.

Its a long shot given hayfever season has gone but just throwing it out there as its the only similar situation I have had.


Running a Marathon for the first time

Posted: 21/10/2014 at 08:27

If you managed to run the whole way last time,  you'll be able to run/walk the marathon. Lets face it, 90% of any given marathon field are probably going to walk at some point, its just that  you may need to do it a little more than others. Anyone who can do a half marathon has at least the basic level of fitness needed to complete a marathon. And this isn't me trying to give you a pep talk. I am 100% confident you can get round the course, simply as a matter of fact.

What was on it?

It was asking about the thread that kk had posted on that got deleted.

You know, the usual going on's around here.

It was also posted in the clubhouse section, which not being funny but should have a higher tolerance in terms of garbage posted since its not polluting the other sections so people can still ask 'I just broke my leg, will I be ok to run a marathon next sunday?' in the beginners forum as much as they like.

Galen Rupp uses an underwater treadmill. Ive seen the videos! Bizarrely it also comes with an extension that gives you an underwater massage.
