After a dismal week last week, I took it easy over the w/e. did 2 nice steady 5 milers and then today did 10. I started of nice and slow, but managed the lot in a very comfortable pb! I also did it as a 6 lap trot so I could study my splits.... They were all about the same, except the second to last one was a minute faster!!!

Now seriously thinking (if its a 'good day') to go for the 1:40... I'll keep you posted!

I'm seriously thinking of having a fiver on you cracking it young man.

Keep us posted...

Spread bet on the cards here
Jon to break 1.40
Jon to have new mizunos named after him.

Should get very rich.

Jon - you will romp home inside the 40 no worries !

After you've cracked Mizuno - how about speaking to Peugeot - what's with all those cars being numbers ? Too confusing. But call a car a Jon, and they've got a ready made market !
Actually this would work for Rover and BMW too. Maybe speak to them and you'll get a free one ? (and as you live in the big city - I'd look after it for you 'cos I'm nice, and your streets are crowded enough anyway)

Ullo Jon got a new motor?

I have this picture of you running off into the distance at Windsor. Might have a word with Snoop about dropping you off five miles away so you can get some more training in beforehand. That should slow you down

Keep it up youngster.

Time for an update.

Yes Jon, time for you to update your target time, got you down for 142:29 at the moment but its looking good for quicker than that, I reckon you will do sub 1:40 also, how about changing your target then..............
20/09/2002 at 09:59
I think I will be changing my target time! Went for another 10 miler an comfortably stayed within 8 mph! Got home, had a glass of wine whilst watching the end of Bargain Hunt (Cheap as Chips) and fell asleep for 12 hours!!!

Woke up this morning at 08:55 and was only 20 mins late for work!!!

My legs ache a bit, but I'll be alright. From now on tempted to keep mileage down and chill out 'til the big day... Good idea?

Working with kids obviously has some kind of effect on you doesn't it?

I'm really starting to worry about you sir!
