Fergster I'm going to go ahead and amend my goal - 3:34 for sure. I'm uncertain as to whether I will shoot for 3:30 and potentially miss, but I'm pretty sure I'm in 3:35 shape
Westy At least you'll be raring to go for the spring.
Dr D, good strategy. At least you can see how MP feels in a real situation, and if you need to slow down you'll have had a dress rehearsal and know how to adapt next time.
MM, don't underestimate the value of the taper and the race situation. I didn't feel like I could do 26 at MP last time, but well exceeded my expectations on race day after some rest and with extra adrenaline. Getting the pace dialled in is definitely valuable.
Kease, hope you pick up soon - this is good timing though, should make sure you're back on form for race day
Anyone heard from Wenty? Hope he's getting on ok.
I am also not yet mad. I am predicting it for next week, but since I've failed to fully invest in this training cycle and haven't got at all worked up about the race, it may not actually happen this time. It's crept up on me, and I don't feel ready at all, so really don't know what to expect - which may be an advantage in not pressurising myself!
