    Realised that isn't me in the vid at the time I said, as its too tall and darker haired. Its another member of my running club who I was chatting to last night called Paul IIRC. After HOURS looking at the footage I have just found me at around the 31:38 mark in the LH lane oer by the kerb. Don't blink.

    fuck it-you've put all the work in, you know what to expect & do & you're more capable than most at planning/contigency. Go out & show yourself, Lisa, Charlie & all of us what you can do!

    This Thursdays activity was a mile time trial, on a quite hilly course. Same again next week and the result of those two runs will then be used to make 4 man teams for a relay event on the third Thursday.
    Lisa managed it in 09:32 Running Activity 0.99 mi | RunKeeper and I got 06:14 Running Activity 1.00 mi | RunKeeper
    I will run with her next week and see if we can eek a bit more out (9:00 ?) as it will be just 3 days before the GNR so I don't want to overdo it...

    Good stuff and well done Lisa!!! Sounds like you've found a nice friendly club there, hope it goes well.

    Aye, I intend to do the latter Si, leave myself as fresh as possible....

    Follow up to the above; today was the handicap race. I improved by 22 seconds with 22 minutes dead. Not sure on position, but nobody passed me and I passed quite a few and in theory we should have all crossed the line together...
    Running Activity 3.17 mi | RunKeeper
    Didn't manage to come across the line first tho.
    That honour fell to Lisa!
    After getting in last in 37 mins last week she started first this week and got round in 36 this week and nobody passed her.
    Not a confirmed win unfortunately due to having no previous form to confirm she didn't run slow last week and gain too big a handicap, but a genuine top effort and a win in my mind. Well done hon.

    Tomorrow brings my last 12 mile long slow run before the GNR. Should be fun on tired legs from today, but hey ho. Bring it on.

    Nice update and good to see Lisa involved as well. I would like to do the club thing but it doesnt really fit around our life and the dog, maybe one day.

    Dont worry too much about getting your pace up with the long runs as I'm sure you noticed when you ran the 10k, pace magically appears on race day (unless you're running in the arse end of the world, like Fleetwood for example ).

    Anyway, keep up with the training, remember two choices in race week; some people like to keep training hard and just leave themselves a rest day; with my achy body I like to leave about three days free and just go for a 2-3 mile jog to loosen and do some stretches the day before.

    Aye, there was a few nice views to keep me motivated along the way.
