Was off line for a bit there and just got back on.
Sorry to hear your sad tale Roaree - hope you're back on track soon.
I'd love to say "All the chocolate for me then" but afraid I've whimped out and decided to go for the 10k instead - just havent been had the time to get the distance up. Sure I could have done it if it wasn't for those pesky kids and their 7 weeks holidays
So the new challenge is to inprove my 10k time (do I get a wee bit for that??)
PoppyRed - I'm no expert but I reckon if you are doing 11 miles with 5 weeks to go - you'd be fine. If I was at that distance now, I'd do it. As the man they call Cake has said - your time is not important especially on a first attempt - I would be delighted just to finish. As you havent done it before, any time you get is a Personal Best and gives you something to beat next time.
Go on - you know you want to!!!
