Brass is my PB course and I shall be back to concentrating on tri training after it so it's my one real attempt for the year. I'm doing the full at WP but that will be run as a training run (though I PB'd doing that last year), any other races I enter will also be part of training, can't lose the time to taper and recover.

21m long run this morning taking in about 6m of the BM course. I hope the wind is as non-existent on race day though a degree or three warmer would be welcome. It is still as flat as ever folks!

I'm No:749, hoping for 1:25/1:26-ish.

Our numbers arrived last week and it spurred to me on to my last LSR before the BM - did a really enjoyable 15.5 yesterday up around the moors hereabouts, miles 8 - 13 I ran really hard in an effort to remind me how tough it will be on the day.  It all went pretty well, if this is anything to go by I can look forward to this race with some optimism

Can't remember my number off the top of my head, will post it later when I get home.

Hey NSC, hope that cold clears up soon - I've been taking echinacia for the past month to keep the lurgy at bay, seem to have worked so far.  Am adding H and I to the list, will update her number later - can't quite remember it, I know it starts with 13*.

Or is that echinacea?  One of those words I don't know how to spell

Do the organisers allow number transfers for this race?

BR.. when I tried to offload my number 3 years ago 'on the day' (I was injured) they simply said it was not permitted.

Might be worth a go at this stage, The Race Secretary (Malcolm Fawcett) is at..

Unfortunately we'll have to get home to the dog so are unable to participate in the post race celebrations/commiserations.

The pub is the Marcia in nearby Bishopthorpe (you run past it) and the chips were pretty good last year.

just tidying up the list a bit.
Been away on business for a few days - helped me recover from a really carp run on Sunday when I simply could not get my body to raise HR and just plodded around.
I would have been really depressed after reading NE post about long runs (over my hills!!!) and a good interval session last evening were it not for the fact that I ran the fastest ever training time over 5.1 miles very early this am - no pressure NE!!!!

08/01/2009 at 22:06
Absolutely no pressure TS

Finally collected my number from my parents'.  This will be the first race I have done where ipods are banned.  How am I going to manage without music???  It takes the pain away...

Did a 6.4 threshold run around Harrogate Stray tonight, felt pretty good though I faded a bit in the last mile - probably because I'm a little jaded from a tough week at work.  Updating list with Helen's number:

Actually, I'd better remove the babycham gag - she'll kill me if she sees it
