Normally would be competition in most things but if he's anywhere near me at the finish then I've had a very bad day . He hates training but loves the actual day, he only runs 1 or 2 times a week, he does do plenty of other stuff in the week though so is generally fit. He'll be around 5:30 I expect, in fact he'd be delighted to go under 5:30. But he'll get round and enjoy himself.
I saw the live tracking, that's always handy if a) it doesn't crash on the day b) other half can get a phone signal.
Big_G - That just means get there early! or find somewhere a mile away. Looks a nice course, always tough when you go near the finish at the half way point. Good luck.
Took the dog out last night round some local woods & he was perfect. Off lead the whole time & his recall was excellent. Didn't bark once at other dogs & greeted them all nicely, rather than charging at them at 100mph and then bouncing round them barking!. So making good progress. We think the previous owner avoided all other dogs & we've really worked hard to socialise him as much as possible.
Always find the final taper week a bit weird, I want to go run 7 or 8 miles but sticking to a couple of 3 milers, but still quite a bit of walking. I'll maybe do 2 either tomorrow or Saturday.
Ian - Not sure if you planned on going, but there's no Birkenhead parkrun this weekend due to the transport thing going on in the park. No Delamere either and it's Ellesmere port's 100th event so could be busy there. How's that hammy ?
