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.

A bike! FFS, get on the cycling thread.

Ten minutes until Andrea comes on, she's got a feature about a skydiving monkey.

Youíre a silly sausage. I admit, the bike was a mistake. I donít think itís possible to be colder and wetter than I am right now. Iím soggier than a beaverís unmentionables.

Still, 8 miles in the bag and possibly the only time Iíll see a 6 minute mile during training

The skydiving monkey was wearing goggles. I thought, I bet Smull has forgotten his.

A skydiving monkey might be enough to make me quit running and watch the telly

I've only ever gone up to half marathon distance... I might try and shadow your running, see what state I'm in after a few months!

It’s all about pushing the envelope slightly each time. On the day I ran 3.2 miles, I could’ve probably ran four miles but I decided to hold back until next time. Slowly, slowly catchy monkey.

If you can run 13 miles, then you can run 14 miles and if you can run 14 miles....etc etc. Really, there’s no physical reason why can’t run 20+ miles if you can already run 13. It becomes more of a mental battle (rather than physical) over and above half marathon distance.

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

Will I do it? Stay tuned.
