Fold/cut the number a bit smaller, or is that against the rules?

Good luck everybody tomorrow, I'll be there with you in spirit whilst cyber-stalking like crazy (assuming next door's new router doesn't take control of my router again as it did earlier today). Don't be shit!

Hope you have a good run Doppy. I've surprised myself with some of the times I've done when I go in with no target and just run easy

Good job I decided not to run - I now have a stinking cold and would be mightly lucky to be fit by Sunday.

Just go to a sports bar - at 1:30 in the morning they'll probably have it on one of the TVs somewhere as there's not much local sport on at that time.

Good reports everybody - glad to hear of some excellent times and that everybody came out unscathed. One of our club collapsed at the finish in Manchester and has absolutely no recollection at all of the last couple of miles or the immediate aftermath of the finish. Still got his GFA time though - did all his training on a treadmill at 7:30 pace

Proper speedwork tonight 3 x 6 x 200m, done as a shuttle run in teams of 3, not something we do very often. The distance actually turned out slightly short of 200, but got progressively longer as the runners at both ends kept moving back until it was at least 25-30m longer than at the start and the last few were recorded as 200. That resulted in times ranging from 29 to 32 secs, but the average pace was 4:24 per mile, which is faster than Mo Farah will go on Sunday. BOTF faster than Mo Farah shocker!

The Red GFA start is good, I was off there in 2012. There are two start pens as I recall and I would guess you'll be in number 2 (I was there after running 3:11). I waited until about 5 minutes before the start to make my final toilet stop by which time most of the runners had gone to the start so I could take my pick of almost any one of them, then I strolled over to the back of pen 2, waited about 2 minutes for the gun and then was across the start line in about a minute, and up to speed and running freely very quickly.

Vets and supervets winning races

We had a 50+ vet win our 10k a couple of years ago and 2nd was a vet 40. It seems relatively common to see vet ladies finishing in the first 3, particularly in the longer events.

Yes, quite satisfied, not getting so down on myself now the marathon is forgotten.

Well done Samir, it's always tough when it's a solo time trial for most of the way, so that's a decent result.
