Have just come across this thread and haven't laughed so much in ages.
No wonder Pheidippides collapsed at the end of his first marathon attempt if this was how he ran.
I was thinking he could be autistic...
My deepest apologies to Seren and anyone with autistic kids - I'm not being thoughtless/ignorant...
it's just his apparent inability to take things in and need to repeat the same things over and over again, plus the complete absence of humour or proper social engagement people mentioned before.
something's not quite right...
Ricky Ricky Ricky answer my question please where is the proof this is a better form of running, please?
Come on Ricky you cant just post saying this is great try it and bottle out of explaining how and why.
Wheres your backbone.
That is not evidence is it now Ricky?
Come on stop being silly and give us some proof thats not Pottery based

could be Nam but they are usually very logical and work with facts................the social side yes but i have noticed a great lack of facts on his part............
its more likely to be an attention seeking disorder.............

Bit slow there, GB.
I agree with you Seren, didn't strike me as an ASD, the tone seemed wrong, but as everyone's different...

I wonder if Nike could pick up the "new style" from Ricky you know
"Do you feel the need to be naked?
Have you looked at Ancient Greek Urns and thought I want to run like that?.
I have a small pointy Willy.
I have a large pointy beard.
I have a really large pointy spear.
Nike Olympus makes you run like a Greek God. "
Do Argos sell running gear now?
are you there?
Can you give us a bit of info on you new technique please?
This is great!
I think Ricky might be a massive cult...
Actually, thinking about it, he MIGHT be a cult leader. Imagine all his vases project subliminal messages about alien-lizard gods into our heads. We could be being brainwashed just by looking at his snazzy pottery.
Before we know it we'll all be running around town centres on tip toes with collection boxes, making millions of quid for good old Ricky.
It's not going to stop me reading though, this is hilarious!
*lol* Check this out, forumite lardarse was a famous Olympian in a former life! Probably one of Ricky's key disciples. It's all coming together now...
"Ladas of ArgosLadas of Argos won the dolicho's at 460 BC. He was famous for his light running. It was said, that his feet did not leave tracks on the ground."
From: Famous Olympic Victors
Don't know about Ladas of Argos, but here's china of Argos:
Handy for the kebabs, koftas and greek salads!
Argos do everything
Ricky yoo hoo are you ignoring us now?
Tricky Dicky, you there?
He's probably out running like a mental. Wonder if a vase on the head would improve posture?
Here's someone demonstrating how its done.
Demo (can't get picture image to upload)
And another example here! (OMG - I'm turning into Ricky).
