Chris - good luck for Saturday - would be great if the wind was behind you! I would love the rain as the heat just takes it out of you. Have a great run, but remember not to go too fast in the first 5km. Good that you will be able to have a look at the course.
I've run 9km this morning - by myself - Wednesday training partner has left for Taupo for NZ Ironman on Saturday. Everything is happening on Saturday including my 45th wedding anniversary!
Mick - didn't Ceal have a Baker's cyst or something similar? Maybe she can advise you on it.
Ceal - so sorry for you, but you have done some good training, maybe when you feel better have a go at a Parkrun.
Empty - sounds like your running is coming along nicely.
I ran 28 kms in a pack yesterday - extremely hot, written off for the rest of the day. Won't be able to do a long run next week as going to a wedding. So I've done 3 long runs so far - we leave for Ireland at the end of the month and are away for about 3 weeks - not sure how much running I will do in that time, and Rotorua is just over a week later.
