Simon - You're taking Berlin seriously then! Nice parkrun. At last count, we've got 15 Kent runners doing Berlin. Gonna be a right hoot.
My weekend 5k effort was marginally slower than Simon's but it was in the middle of a scorchio afternoon on Saturday. Oof! So I was hoping for a sub-16 at Tooting in the 5,000m but revised my pace in the heat, finished strongly and ended up being pretty pleased with a season's best 16:07.3. Still got the British Masters end of July, club champs in September, and possibly an evening BMC race in between if I can be bothered, to have a few more cracks at it.
More importantly, I've decided that I'm officially marathon training from now - 12 weeks to go - so kicked that off with a hungover 18 miles yesterday morning, and will add some MP miles to track sessions on Tuesday evenings. 2:29:59 won't run itself...
