Last night, I was chilling out in the sauna when I got chatting to a guy who said he's run a 3hr 30 marathon after running 3M to and from work for a few months before.
How amazing is that?! Imagine how good he could be if he actually did some training! He also advised me to push to the front to get a good start. Genius!
Then there was the guy who told me to suck on a small pebble to prevent a dry mouth. Silly me, thinking a Camelbak and emergency fiver was the way to go.
But if I didn't fancy a pebble, I could always drink diluted, flat coke on race day because 'the caffeine and cocaine will make you run really well.'
Why do these old gits (no offence to old gits) who couldn't run a bath, feel the need to tell me how to train?! ARGH!
