Aah more arse talk - seems to be slowly getting better at least Scott.
Dachs - Good work on the relay and last night, some impressive strength..saw the action photo from Abingdon's post on twitter -I did ask them if they had used the one from last year! James B is such a nice bloke, he laughs about me always beating him - but I have to remind him it's always over short distances - not 1/2 mara where he is in the 70.xx range! He's no slouch over short stuff anyway..
I was at Battersea for our Vets match and a 1500. Quite a few in it, plus this bloke I hadn't seen before with an old South of England vest (more later). Bit breezy, but went to the front and the first lap was 66. Tried to keep the pace up and there was someone sill following me and I couldn't shake them off (actually clipped me a couple of times). Had a feeling it was SOE man, his shadow looked relaxed. 800 in 2.16 and still couldn't get rid. No times at the bell again, so just tried to push it and get rid of him, but I could tell he was waiting to pounce - which he did with 200m to go. He ended up with 4.13, me 4.16. So pretty happy with that after racing Saturday - interesting to see if the SOE bloke does any more races, he's a V40.
Watched the 2nd half of the crap footie, train at 11pm, home 12.30 ish. Lots of coffee needed today. Hopefully weather will be a bit better at Watford weds week for the attack at sub 4.10.
