Dachs , i struggled the last lap today - the undulations and heat played havoc with my pacing. My plan was similar - run the first lap easy and the next 3 at 2.59 mara pace, laps 2 and 3 were on the money and the last was more like 3.05 pace. My legs still felt a bit battered from Silverstone but on the whole it was ok enough. Have two big sessions planned next week and then i'm going for the 3 week taper.
Nice to meet Dachs over there today andstraight after the race i hit the Hillingdon AC club bar. The ice cold beers at the finish were flowing in Jimbob's direction .... i wasn't on the p!55 or anything but i had a couple. The rest of the Heathsiders shot off for a warm down run while i flew the flag for North London
