no 79 for me, Gul. 4 easy here earlier.
Splendid target, btw - appeals to my sense of symmetry !
To elaborate a bit on the "do my best" aim - that is quite true, as I'm not the type to want to just get round taking it easy (if that exists in the 26.2). But, like your "neat" 3:10, any of the following would be "neat" also
a) breaking club VoGit record - a soft 3:37 currently, so I'd be disappointed not to break that (but expect my fellow VoGit to be ahead of me at Mable, (Poacher - he's the one who did 3:16 in the Boston furnace of 2012, aged 59)
b) beating Manchester time - I feel I'm in better shape than at Manc (used parkrun as an indicator, and that suggests so), but 1995 last time I did spring/autumn, so that is an uncertainty factor, and as stated y'day, 2002 last time I bettered prev one
c) to finish in one piece - this would mean I'm on track for the 26th completion at VLM 2015, of which 13 would be London (see symmetry )
5 days out, but looking like the old east coast wind is priming itself . . . . .
