Speaking of the pens, last year I wanted to drop back a pen and thought I would do this on the day.
The guy on the gate wouldn't let me and insisted I went into the proper pen.
So I stayed right at the back of the pen.
This turned out to be really good because as our pen moved forward to the start line, I was rewarded with loads of space and I was even able to run around the pen as part of a warm up.
If you think that you may need to drop back a pen, don't. Stay in your original pen and make the most of a relaxing start.
I've had a week on the bench, so far.
Achilles problems - boo.
Seems to be taking an age to go away, too.
I've got a half in three weeks but I wasn't going to race it so hopefully I'll be able to use it as a training run.
Aside from that, no plans.
I haven't even finalised a spring marathon yet. Hat in the ring for London (ha).
