Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

If you can run 13 miles, then you can run 14 miles and if you can run 14 miles....etc etc. Really, thereís no physical reason why canít run 20+ miles if you can already run 13. It becomes more of a mental battle (rather than physical) over half marathon distance.

All that said, Iíd be happy to get to 6 right now I have about 4 weeks left to achieve that goal.

Will I do it? Stay tuned.
Fixed.

Default Longest Run Since 2015

Bonjour!

Today saw my longest run since mid 2015 @ 4.65 miles and what a lovely day for it!

As you can see from the 2nd pic, my 23 week marathon training plan is now up on the kitchen wall and begins on 18th November. Shit is about to get serious but Iím on track to be at the required 6 mile distance ability by the time the plan starts.

Hopefully Iíve done enough to keep Sol from the skydiving monkey and Loose Women.

Peace & Love,
Smull

Hip (touch wood) is ok, knees and back less so. I checked my weight today and it was a bit of a shock. I NEED to back the truck up, lose weight and give my body a chance for this marathon.

Okay, hope the hip holds up! For knees I use Mava knee supports from Amazon ever since I kept twisting my knees (due to my weight).
