The thing is when you start you'll find that you will probably be faster with walking than if you slowly plod along and manage the 5k without a walk.

Stick with the plan, but on the day of the race, just go for it, and if you can't keep going don't be afraid of walking a bit no-one cares, but if you would love to run it all just give it your best on the day, it's a good buzz being in an event and you will probably have the oomph to go for it

My OH said there was a radio program about it where the competitors in some of the poor countries in the commonwealth get to the games, and it's the equivalent of their Olympics. It's the biggest event they will ever take part in, these sports people are heros in their countries as a result of taking part in the CG. 

Also people like Steve Way.... You ask him how he feels about being at the CG representing his country.

Cheers, good to throw more possibilities into the pot. Must admit from what i've read, the BlackDiamonds do seem to be fun.  I'm spending £7.99 on a pair of dirt cheap sticks from go outdoors and going to stroll around derbyshire at the weekend with them, to just get a feel of using them.
