Great report Macca, very precise maths. Mine was more of an educated guess.

All eyes on you this weekend Spoons, no pressure
After hearing about all your training the 3:05 should be nailed on if you stick to the plan.

Tom, my legs don't feel too bad at all. Probably a combination of plenty of races in my legs and not quite having the specific speed training to really hammer them yesterday. Need to start working on my pre-Christmas 5k plan.

Great run at GSR Muddy! So close to sub 60. If the conditions are right then it's a perfect course.

Well done everyone. Al, you were 2 seconds behind me so I may have shaken your hand at the end!
I got to half way on target and feeling good but it felt like it was uphill and into the wind all the way back and just scraped a sub 3 with 2:59:12. A well organised race but was a bit disdained at the supporters that only cheered their own club's runners and blanked everyone else, especially the bloke with the big black and red flag!!
In all a good day.

Nice 10k Reg, go easy on the hamstring.

I was attempting to leave a little cliffhanger in my report by planting the seed that Macca was behind me but not divulging whether he got a 2:59:xx or not.

Good to meet you today Macca, glad you have gone over to the dark side and are signed up for another ultra.

Glad to see you are getting back into things Chicksta.

Joe, putting my parkrun RD HI-viz on, i have to inform you that it's technically 1st finish. You don't want to go offending anyone

Well, Abingdon went almost to plan so not a massive report. Settled into a good pace and hit half way dead on 1:29 and feeling good. Was really hoping for a negative split and the intention was to get to 20 and push on. Got to 20 miles and it felt like we were running straight into a headwind and what felt like 6:40 effort was coming out at 6:55. Decided that if I could dig in, keeping a 7:xx off the scorecard the sub 3 was still on so just got my head down and did my best to tuck in behind anyone taller than me (most of the population) and make sure I was going as tight as possible on the corners. With about a mile to go I passed Macca. We had a very brief hello and decided on no chatting until the end and making sure we were under 7 min miling. Very tough going in the last mile which was also slightly uphill but got to the track knowing that unless I fell over I was ok. Crossed the line in 2:59:12. Not quite the negative split I was after but still another sub 3 in the bag. So far it's my " least worst" positive split for a sub 3.
I waited for Macca to finish and had a good chat at the finish line.

Now home and it's beer o'clock as I have the next 2 days off work!!!

Only one more big carby meal left for me. Think I've got everything sorted for tomorrow. It was very cold at parkrun this morning so may have to pack some gloves for the opening miles.
Alarm set for 5am so an early night for me.
Macca, I'm number 137 - will be in my blue and orange marathon talk tshirt.

Im still getting over Macca's 900g of carbohydrate. I fear I will not be as well "loaded" come Sunday.
