Osaka No Go!

Thanks for the comments boys. I like the idea of fresh coconut milk Marty. I'll try a few spoons of the 100% oil, I have, a day and see how that goes. And thanks Ewen, I'd like to run Melbourne one day but the timing is a bit off for this year and Kobe is a PB course, I reckon, only a large Bridge or two towards the end but flat otherwise. BTW I think I was the one to tell you your beard was "sexy" but I was drunk at the time. Bob the expectation of looking like a young Brad Pit without a beard faded long ago like the colours of my present one. I'm afraid the reality is closer to this below.

  1. Always interesting. Running form check seems a good move.

  2. All the best Scott! Do some core training dude! If I was your coach you would be running 2.42! Well maybe!

  3. bummer about osaka, let's hope you get into kobe. i ran in thailand for a year without cramps by drinking fresh coconut water straight after running

  4. Kobe is a fairly difficult course, isn't it?
    Weak glutes and hamstrings, strong quads — you and 98% of other runners.
    I have a question about personal appearance, since I'm staring at your mug for 5 minutes at a time. You have a beard with mostly white whiskers, which makes you look ten years older. Why do you want to look ten years older?

  5. Don't listen to Bob Scott - bearded runners are faster and (so I've been told) sexier.

    The Kobe plan sounds good, although if it's not a PB course, why not Melbourne? Fly in Saturday, home Monday. Nice fast course.

    My tip for the cramps would be more salt on your burnt fish (unless you have high blood pressure) - nothing wrong with salt for runners, especially during summer.

  6. Exactly! Abe looks a lot younger in that photo than in the usual ones with a beard.

  7. Scott, do not take sartorial or grooming advice from a man who spends his days in front of a mirror laser-removing every last hair follicle and trying on many types of dark glasses to see which combination makes him look the most like Bruce Willis. I mean we are talking serious narcissist territory here. You grow that grey beard and be proud of it. Grow old disgracefully. That's what I always say ;-) (And good luck with your new targets)

  8. I'm happy to report I haven't a grey hair on any of my (visible) body parts. I then look at all of you and see my future and think ... it's not going to be all that bad ...
