You just don't get it, do you? It's not meant as an insult, just that many people have been in similar situations as you, had similar thoughts, and then one day they, to quote a phrase ()
"have what alcoholics would call, a moment of clarity"
Madlot - considering how much time i spend on the net, and what my gilrfriend calls me, my right arm should twice the size.

I quite like American Flyers too. It was a long time ago tho when I watched it.
It was on over Xmas on BBC! My copy from the mid 90s misses the first 30mins. This time the sky box automatically turned itself off mid recording. So I now have another copy minus the final 30mins. This film is not only deep, it also contains inspiration for all of us amateurs with a secret passion to beat the pros:
Deep: Contains a bit of Latin (on a t-shirt awarded after a Max VO2 test) which translates as 'Once you've got it up, keep it up!' - My personal motto for life, although it is costing me a fortune in viagra!
Motivation: Kevin Costner actiing / riding a bike (in a cowboy hat!)
Motivation: Lead chaarcter is an ex student who is dossing, trains most days without any plan (sounds a bit familiar that!) and dreams of being a pro, like his brother (Big Kev C). Gets talked into doing a pro race, on no serious training other than riding 2 days to the start of the event. Gets laid by a hippy the night before the start, just makes the cut on the first day, having srashed inside 200m from the line and carries his bike on his shoulder, goes alone the next day to win the time bonuses, and wins the overall having had a fist fight with the previous winner whilst riding alone up a mountain. Oh, an his brither is also dying in hospital during the event as well.
You'll have to get a pirate copy off the net Jokerman. It is as 80s as they come D2D. Highly recommended.
p.s. Haven't seen the Bicycle thieves, but I've had my bike nicked before. The bastards!
Of course not.They come here for my depth.
Of course not.
They come here for my depth.
Wrong again I'm afraid. They come here to take - and to watch others taking - the p*ss.
I don't remember the plot Keir, but I do remember the blonde that got her tits out...I'm so deep!

Deep throat has a fair bit of depth.
Danowat...........once again we have thought the same thing at the same time...........it was something about JM's post that made it pop into my head.................
so many views.......... .its a bit like all those people who tuned into u-tube just to see Kerry K self destruct..........
The evolution of this thread has lead to some good lunch-time reading.
I'm looking forward to the next installment.
Bike races and soft porn! Why haven't I seen this film?!
For a bit of "deep" I'd like to recommend "Being and Time" by Martin Heidegger. I read 17 pages of it once and I think I understood the gist of it. (The other 600 pages will have to wait.) Don't ask me about it now though, haven't got a scooby.
Jokerman - That Baywatch bird with the tits out in that bike racing film, is also a runner. Front cover of RW America in 1997. An ebay bargin (but not playboy!)
I'm proud of the evolution of this thread.
Yes, the last couple of pages have been good!
Don't forget "In too deep" & "Deeper Underground.
nine minutes off a run shorter than 8 miles is not showing consistency with a 9 mins of a 13 mile route
But good running D2D...........glad to see your following your own advice/ schedule and taking the runs in the week easier so that you can run flat out (without being out of breathe) on Sunday.
keep going....this will either give you a massive PB at your next races..................or a trip to the hospital......I'm not taking bets by the way
