5m v easy today with strides. Felt stiff and sluggish all the way round until the last few sets of strides. but I'll put that down to usual pre-race feelings.
Race tomorrow. My heart says sub-40 but my head says it's 3 weeks too early and sub-41 is more likely. Will try to do the first 5k in exactly 20 minutes and see how I feel after that. If not, there's always July.
Yeah, I realise that BT, but my point is in response to the OP's that he could lose X amount of weight and still be "healthy" under the BMI - for some people, and not just body builders, this will simply not be feasible, or would require an interesting interpretation of the word "healthy".
I currently have no spare tyre, but am sure I can put that right with a few World Cup beers over the summer.
