Ha! First attempt since high school and i did 1:09 something.

Nearly vomited. In fact if i had anything in my stomach i would have. Only just beat my daughter too.

In other news, if i was an 11 year old girl, i would have qualified for state titles. :lol:
It's got to be the worst distance to run at any age

Surely a marathon would be worse.

I used to run a bit when I was a teenager. Could do a half marathon with little or no training. In fact did one after being out clubbing until 4.00. Went home and shagged my girl a bit and probably had two hours sleep. I was only doing about 15ks a week in the lead up and did the half in 89 mins which was a shit time for me but I felt ok and finished no problem. I decided I should pull my finger out so joined a group who were getting coached on the track. One of the things we did was 200 & 400 mtr interval training. ie one fast 200 or 400 followed by a slow interval of tr same distance. I think they called it a fartlek session. Anyway after doing a session of 400 reps. I have never been as rooted in my life and threw up several times in the long jump pit. So yeah 400 is hard.

An 89 minute half is pretty good, were you still on the pingas from the night before?

Fartlek is Swedish for speed-play.
It isn't fun at all.

400s are essentiallly a lactate tolerance event. They suck.

I ran a 22 and tiny bit 200 at high school. Could'nt run a 400 for the life of me. Can't run fast in a straight line either. If you needed a bloke to run reasonably quick in a circle I was your man.

I knew I’d seen you somewhere before and AJ makes a guest appearance at the beginning.

I went to school with a guy who was the Australian schoolboys U18 400m champ (just looked him up, he ran a 47.5). It was quite funny watching him at school athletics carnival, he would win by 50m or more.

He was also very smart, did law, joined a merchant bank. Now I’ve looked him up on linked in; what’s that feeling when you realise someone you knew is way more successful than you have ever been?

Thanks guys. Next time pick a better sport for my memories, maybe shot out so I can recall that guy who was the shot put champ at school until he dropped out in year 10

Well, when he finished you would be at approx the 275m mark. I would be 50m behind you, if that’s any consolation

Watch Darren Clark play Rugby League. It will make you feel a lot better.

400 max effort is a complete mind fcuk. First 100: wow I'm flying! Second 100: well if this is as bad bas it gets, I'll be OK. Around 250 coming into the curve: oh christ no. The last 50 feels like it takes longer than all the rest of it put together.

crabmeat pick it up for fcuk's sake, people in my iron squad are running that at 52sec. Back to back.

and oh yeah it's super super fun down here right now. Really channels get out of Manly. There are much better waves elsewhere.

Rarely surf Manly much, daylight savings and darker mornings limit my available options before work options.
