so 18h 35m to 17h 22m so thats an hour and 13m improvement but u got to improve that by another hour in order to get anywhere close to the record though.

i offer some advice seeing as i saw you at 2 differant points of the day!

running north harrow to rayners lane clearly although you say u are a fast runners! you got beat by over 2 mins by an overweight alcholic 39 year old with 4 pints of beer still in his belly! so thats defo room for improvement if u had off kept up with me you have had the oppurtunity of being further ahead up the route.

ealing common clearly u havent thought of all the options there as u ambled up the stairs waiting 6 mins for a district i can actually tell you i was at ealing broadway before the district even arrived at ealng common, even the slower iain and rhys managed the same train as us as caught the many buses outside best to have it in your hands and not the tubes sort of thinking.

Edgware seeing two young people after we had quit running past kfc they clearly wasnt any rush to your running down the road more fitness is required me thinks.

Yup there's several buses from E Common - we got the train before out of Broadway.

Andi's not being very encouraging though - well done on knocking nearly 75 minutes off your previous time :D

Ok here is what happened on the day

we got a great start to our day with good connections especially at moor park
first run was ok... But could have done a few minutes quicker but we were still on schedule but then a late Central put us 2 trains down at Ickenham
got a good double back at Preston rd in and out in 9 seconds
got all good connections after that but still 25 mins down
but then did Morden-Wimbledon in 9 minutes
then we realised we would miss Olympia service by 2 minutes so got on the overground there and the district back out
still 20 minutes down
then got to Buckhurst hill with 5 mins to get to roding valley but missed it by one minute now 40 down
and had to wait 12 minutes for mill hill east
so that's all the big three messed up
did high Barnet to Cockfosters in 17 minutes but then had to wait 16 MINUTES AT COCKFOSTERS now an hour and a half behind
but got all amazing connections rest of the day and didn't have to wait at t4
finished in 17:23:52. Not 22 as i said earlier 1 hr 5 behind schedule

There is your answer then go solo the brother can be support you wouldnt have been able to keep up though as there is no oway your pace is anything like u believe it is. At ealing common a simple trick is not prepared to run gp outsode the station on the bridge then u can watch both district and buses.


As for not being very encouraging I think telling people the truth may be more harmful but it gives a good sharp kick up the backside.

If anybody wants to break geoffs record they need to hear facts plainly ur start of route was crap u lost time to everybody else because of inexpierance. Thats why ur claims seem wishy washy u dont have the knowledge to back it up.

Care to explain wimbo to morden 9 mins arrival departure

U got the actual timings to back that up as you just pointed out brother slowing you down I can understand lucky in and out but 4 mins run doesnt add up with what your running pace dictates

Andi is much nicer in reality than on the forum. That said, South Wimbledon to Morden Road I have done in 6 minutes fast walk, and South Wimbledon is closer than Morden. I extrapolate that Morden to Morden Road is doable in 4 minutes, but if your brother was slowing you down that much, then I doubt it.

That said, 9 minutes Wimbledon to Morden IS possible if you are using a bus from Wimbledon to South Wimbledon in the early morning - no traffic, this journey can be done in 3 minutes, and a very fast connection onto the Northern (pelting down that escalator) can cut Wimbledon to Morden right down to 8 minutes.

If you are free September 20th (this is a Saturday), join us for the Random 15 - it's a good way to pick up experience and learn to plan on the spot! And to do some nice long runs like North Acton to Willesden Junction that you wouldn't even consider normally...

Thanks hugo marrow im a nice bloke but I do call a spade a spade which is why people disagree with me

i encourage by pointing out obvious flaws there is no excuse for non running these days I find if an overweight 39 year old eddie izzard lookalike can in a non race state prove that some run times on here fake.

Run time Walthamstow queens to underground vic 2m 09 s

The only two people I kno whom are fast are geoffs partner anthony and adham Fisher and I can even show up adham on most runs I dont train I drink heavily and yet people still moan get a grip learn how to run control ur breathing.

I know this seems harsh but f**k prove me wrong then you have my respect when u do at leadt rhys tried to keep up run Walthamstow
