Philpub - As has already been said, you're flying and looking great for next week
TR - Nice to see you back to it. Is your HM the Solent?
CC2 - That's a real bummer - hope you're better soon.
Lev - You're sounding strong and positive which is a great combination
Jools - Pleased you've have a better run and nice silver medal.
Last long run (17) today with my village 10k at the end. One guy went off very fast and two others, one dressed as a pencil, overtook me in the 1st km. We all came back together at 3km where I decided to hit the front and try to break away; ran really hard from 3-5km and opened up a gap. Never looked behind but couldn't hear footsteps.
Had turned the autolap off on my watch as it's a very hilly course(450ft of climb) so had a look at 5k and it was 18:13 but the first 2k are uphill. Lonely second half but at least had a lead bike to chase. Finished first in 35:55 so decent -ve split and 30 secs or so ahead of second place. Overall I'm very happy.
