No, they are minging, Poacher, but what a fantastic effort from you today - effortless, even. Maybe that's the key, just turn up and leg it round. I sometimes think we (I) worry ourselves too much and crumble as a result.
Mennania -You could just use this new-found freedom to do whatever you fancy for a month or so, mixing it all right up according to what you feel like doing on the day.
In the end I just did 10 miles but more or less replicated next week's HM course by going up 150m in elevation. Unfortunately the normal route you follow once you're up the hill was closed off (landslides due to the heavy rain), so had to come down straightaway and do some flatter miles down in the city. Last mile 6:45mm just to show myself it is still possible.
