Well done. Glad it all went to plan.

Cheers Ferg. That's what I keep telling myself.
Catching up on some DIY this morning and then a BBQ this afternoon.
Don't think I'll be quite as light as I was for London but it's nicer not to be quite as full on as I was for VLM.

Glad you had a successful day NE.
I got 13 easy miles in yesterday morning and a rest day today. So I think I'll only be running 3 more times before my race on Saturday. It's all come around very quickly.

If you are struggling at the end of your long runs then it's probably one of two things. Either lack of experience of the distance or going too fast for your fitness. It could also be both.

Cheers for the encouragement. Got to the park really early as have never run the course before. In my mind I was thinking somewhere between 18 and 18.30 should be possible. (PB is 18.00 from 2013) did a couple laps of the course as a warm up and the main hill was longer than I expected so decided to just go on feel and try and hold on. Was in 4th for the for the first 2.5 laps and saw 2nd and 3rd struggling on the final hill. Decided just to hammer the last half a mile and was 2nd finisher. Don't think my lungs have felt anything like it for a while.
Official time was 18.22 so not a PB but on a flat course I rekon I'd probably just dip under 18.
Has really given me some encouragement to focus on the shorter distances in the autumn.

Well done on the PB Westy!

If you have got a place then no need to worry.
There are also hundreds of other events out there that are just as good as London.

I've got my GFA time for another couple of years which does make all of the consistent training and racing worth it.

Cheers Ferg. The brain is definitely saying gun it. Hopefully the legs will agree.

Well done on the strides Ferg. Hope the 20 goes ok in the morning.
I'm currently agonising over what pace to go for in the parkrun tomorrow. Not sure my legs will know what's hit them.

I think they are just out to annoy you Dave

You do seem a little obsessed about VMLM and it's entry systems over the years.
