Wardi - best of luck and see you at the finish (or in Chandos)

You deserve a decent pb and the weather looks ideal for a good crack at the 3 hr mark.

Like you, I'm keeping a close eye on the wind...

Wardi - not sure if you still have internet access but just wanted to say I hope we do get to meet up before we all set off on Sunday.  If not, best of luck for the race, the way your training's gone I'm sure you're going to have no problems achieving your target!!

appreciate you are now in London.

weather looks ok for that attempt. I know you can do it.

give me a call if you want to talk through anything, though I'm sure you have it all under control.

to everyone on this thread - good luck

run fast but try and enjoy it whether you run 2:59 or 3:01 or whatever.

Wardi Very best wishes for your run out.

Yours will be one of the first I'll look for on Sunday night. Shame the weather is looking a bit damp, but a bit of water is far better than too much sun or a stiffish breeze.

Keeping my fingers crossed.......and I wont be jealous if you do it......honest.

Quick question...

Last year you could follow people's progress online and I'd like to do the same with Wardi this year. Does anyone know his proper name, or his number?

Hey Wardi,

If I don't get a chance to see you at the start, best of luck and I hope tomorrow goes to plan. I'm sure it will though. Your training has been fantastic and it has been great having you in the Dream Team.

See you in the pub.

Wardi Just seen a good friend of yours come in seconds behind James Cracknell.

All the family know him and were screaming at the telly as he finished

Never saw you, but I just hope you were in the general area at the time.

Wardi ran 3:03 - Blisters ran 2:59.

Wardi is rightly pleased with a big pb.

13/04/2008 at 17:29
I think I saw you finishing, Wardi (unless someone else with the same name was finishing at the same time!). Well done!!

Hey Gang,

Wardi- Well done big fella, great pb.

Blisters- Great effort fella. More importantly thanks for your metronome pacing through the first 11, just what I needed!

Managed 2:57 (31 min pb) and cultured the largest blister I have ever seen!

Steve- Just checked your time... want to see a birth certificate!!! Thanks for all the top advice along the journey!

Look forward to some race reports!

Congrats Wardi for a great run. I hope that three minutes isn't bothering you!

Well done Wardi on your PB.

Older and faster.

Very sad for Blisters. Unlike us he has got nothing else left to strive for in life!

Yes running a good time early on is so anti climatic. I ran 2:29 in my first London and it's been downhill ever since.

Actually it was my quickest London for 19 years today and 4th M50 - two Kiwis ahead so can claim 2nd Englishman!

Thing I was most pleased with slightly ropey long run preparation was my 19th to 24th mile which were 6:16, 6:17, 6:18, 6:19, 6:18, 6:18 - shame about the 25th mile though!

I was very pleased myself with Wardi's performance

10ks of 42, 43, 43, 44

Phil Holders! I thought it was Phil Pub. Thanks for your help in the first 11 miles, it was just what I needed. I did realise that you were just pulling me on a shade, so decided to ease a bit. That of course, was until I got caught by the sub 3 pacer 10 seconds behind you. There was no hiding place then.

Actually I'd like to thank both you and Crab for that run out at Glos. Knowing that I could hang on for 20 plus doing 155hr was a real boon. Iron the slopes, watch the HR being below 155 all the way, and the job's done.

One insignficant fact: this is my first ranking entry into Athletics Weekly on a standard distance. Happy? You bet.
