Simon I should have said Used to like....
Dachs 5 secs a lap at that pace is significant well done on your big improvement over 3k definitely more to come, I'm a great believer in getting time in the bank first 4/5 laps then the rest takes care of itself!!
I normally don't drink from the Sunday before a race but in February I was excited as staying in the big smoke, the Sun was shining and I thought I was on my hols.
I planned to have a couple but that turned into a session !!
I did regret it as I ran 16.25 which was about 3-4 secs outside the V50 course record which has stood for 10 years I think and when I realised I was annoyed with myself.
I will be back to rectify that issue late summer hopefully!!
I can confirm athletic performance suffers with a hangover at the end of Feb I did the Hyde park 5k after 6 pints of lager the night before and I struggled!!
Dean I know someone who raced and he's definitely in 8.45 shape but did 9.18 he thought all times about 30 secs out and confirmed the wind was horrendous!
