Yep, tis the London social for me too on 29th. But I'm not missing the social just for a race. Pah!

W14 58MINS flipping eck!!! I'll be lucky with 1hr 58mins. Don't forget though it could be very hot as it starts at 11.30. I think you'll be OK as I only run 30-45mins to. Enjoy the drinkie poos but as you say just drinks lots of water.

i was going to organise a cocktail night on 29th but couldn't face spending the day before the race hungover!!

i've only done one 10k before (last year's LCH race) and am really hoping to beat my time so please look out for me (no 40) and shout at me if i look like i'm slacking!! did it in 61:03 last time. reckon i could get under 59 - hopefully!

:o)) Supergran

I think 11.30 start isn't too bad,will just have to run faster to beat the heat! (I wish)

Peter - Ahah! A fellow R? You from the rivals board?

Sezz - No cheating on the shandies! ;o))

11.30 is just in time to catch the real heat at noon. I'll be with a two-litre bottle on each shoulder.

Yep. Peterjward2000 on there. Lots of you guys sponsored me to run the Brit 10k for Royal Marsden. Had to leave is getting a bit heavy over there at the moment. The e-mail I had from my electronic entry says 10am. Hopefully this will be clarified should I get anything in the post!

Travelling from the Bush for this one as well. Nice trip to Bethnal Green.

Right, I'm in!! Booked it online.

Will try and get a decent run in tomorrow!

Peter, Know what you mean, but rivals still manages to make me laugh sometimes.

Technohippie - Just make sure your personal stereo is full of techno,techno,techno and you'll be setting a PB for sure! ;o))

just a quick note to say that our closing date for postal entries have been extended to friday 15th July and the online entries Sunday 17th July, so if you haven't entered yet - you'd better be quick!
Good luck to everyone running ;-)

Hi Multi - yup - I can frequently be found in Victoria Park on Thursdays.. but I've can also be spotted at some unearthly hour on Saturday mornings doing hill reps on that insane hill next to the road going towards the observatory with the club!

The course is generally along tree-lines roads in the park, so shade shouldn't be too far away.

Good luck with the training everyone.

I take back what i said yesterday about an 11.30 race start being ok heatwise, went out for some lunch and it was absoultely sizzling outside.

Hope the 31st isn't so hot otherwise it will be pretty tough.

Went out for the club Wednesday run last night, averaging 8.5 Minutes a mile for 4.3 Miles with two pit stops for water and nausea (cos of the heat!). Forget hot it was unreal. Hopefully the fact the route is tree lined will help. And sponges...hmmmm think I'll very much be having some of that. Yep will be adjusting to rrun bloody slow mode if we get heat like this on 31st.

Peter - What club run is that if you don't mind me asking?

Think I would have deffo felt v. dizzy running at that pace.

I'll be running back part of the way home from work tonight, v.slowly. Kew bridge to hammersmith bridge along the towpath.

Hopefully those luvvvverly ladies from the rowing clubs by Hammersmith bridge will be doing there stretches so I can keep my mind off the run as I pass by ;oD

I run with Serpentine Running Club in Hyde Park. They have club runs on Wednesdays and Saturdays. We cheated a bit on pacing as we stopped the watch when we went for water.

Rest day today and then up from the Bush to the towpath (Fullers) and back on Friday (or it it is hot a shorter one with some sit ups when I get home). Wedding Saturday so nothing till Monday I don't think.
