Alan - mtfu, and just bloody win the thing! You'll still have adequate recovery time as long as you take a few rest days - proper rest, with no running (says he who hasn't had a rest day since November!).
SL - glad you enjoyed NYC too - did you get my fb pm about the race?
LS21 - glad to hear you'll toe the line - go in with no expectations and just have fun. Btw - Chester, the week after Berlin. I wonder who I'll be staying with
Decent session last night - fartlek style 3min hard, 1min jog x 8 reps. Hard going. Took this morning off, with a 14/15 commute home planned later.
rodeoflip is correct - cross the bridge, and there is a canal path that in one direction you can follow to Loch Lomond, and in the other will take you all the way into Glasgow city centre, or even as far as Edinburgh if you want! Pretty flat, good conditions underfoot, and you can't get lost (just keep the canal beside you!)
Not entirely sure but think there's a river path running alongside the golf course on the Erskine side - I live right across the river.
LMH - hahaha, guess MP during a race is what it is for all of us!
CW - Alan is but a whippersnapper - when he's our age, it'll be a different story
Alan - I'll try to sneak a look at the list later - FWIW, a steady first half with a progressive MP second half will still put you up there I reckon. It's the stop/start at the 8!!! road crossings you'll have to watch out for - both getting knocked down (don't!), and obeying the marshal's instructions.
A slow plod this morning, nothing to see, move along please
