party hearty folks!
Didn't get in to VLM .Jacket is miles too big - I feel like a cloud.
Got to get sub 2:30 this weekend at Royal Parks Half. Got a PB last year at 2:23:49 so I know I am capable of doing it.
Awe thanks Vixx. I shall be thinking of your confidence in me and that will drive me on
Just worked out that I need to be on a coach at just after 6.30am to get to London tomorrow. Race starts at 9.30 in Hyde Park, and the blooming coach is diverting because of it !! Hopefully I can still get off right beside the park but around the next corner but it's an enormous park and I always get lost trying to cross it ! ! I may just get the tube to the other side and save my little legs. Brakes Food and Fitness Festival at the finish . Lots of freebies as well as lush things to buy. Does anyone know what an M&S Percy Pig station is ?? Is it sweeties??
Not long back from London. Having to wait for the water to heat up before I can get in the bath for a soak .
Percy Pig were very tasty but just a little large for a whole one without choking! Lots of dead ones on the roads (and on the soles of my shoes!) Went well. Managed to finish in 02:26:38 which is slower than last year but still a season's PB (and a sub 2:30! ! ) so I'm not complaining. Will probably write a longer report on GNR 2011 - later! Nice medal made from 100% sustainable wood in the shapeof a sycamore leaf. Makes a nice change. Lots of food, well it was a food festival too! Lots of freebies.
