Great stuff Rob, plenty to aspire too there - just thinking I'm halfway through the V40-45 age group and anything like those times in 7 years time will be nice! Dean going great guns too as per usual.

Nearly through the main drinking festivities - work do Friday night. Luckily not too hungover for the South of the Thames Senior..bugger of a course, 3 laps of the tough Cousdon Surrey lge course so happy with 25th and 2nd V40 (Greenwood was running and came 2nd overall - machine!).

Straight to Luton for training group dinner and drinks (and too much wine). Slight hangover and onto Bedford for the Bedford & County handicap race Sunday morning. It's 2.95 miles and did 16.25, so just under 17 mins for 5k. God that  was hard!

Only the 35th Herne Hill/Doss AC pub crawl tonight to go. Must.....keep.....going. MERRY BLOODY CHRISTMAS

Christ... Cider mile? I presume warm cloudy stuff from Devon rather than Strongbow? Gin mile sounds nice too, but might be cheating!

Dean - a 14.40 5k guy who can't get under 60 secs for 400? astounding isn't it! real anomoly that one.

Not  thought about next year too much  -entered Reading and got Berlin too, so Sunday runs obviously inportant and long intervals. But still keen to get sub 4.10 for 1500 and down to 8.50 for 3k. As the missus says..'Jack of all trades...master of none'

January's detox/no alcohol bollox is already starting to grate.

Perhaps if you didn't stuff yourself full of drink and crap ALL through December, perhaps you would'nt have to act all 'look at me i'm going sober all through January' and carry on through January like everyone else. Why not try exercise and a bit of what you like all year??

No actually - do it and have a miserable January. You deserve it.

Your "booze nationality"

Yes our training group was proud of Kate Avery as she popps down now and again as her bloke is/was a training group member. Its good as our 5000m PB's are both 15.27 (for the time being!!) and it does help you up your game a bit! Shame she got pipped on the line.

Yes Dachs, looking forward to Reading..time to put down a decent time I think (and hope..) didn't want to see the times and wish I had done it..

Cheers for the congrats on the podium - Yes Dachs, It was going as expected on the half at about 7 miles - legs starting to hurt etc..thought it was going to be a long run in. But the twisty redways changed to mainly road in the second half and just felt strangely better when I pushed it a little. Entered Reading in March and aiming for mid 73's..PB is 74.14, but isn't on PO10. Hope you feel better soon..

Dean - we call Greenwood a freak! Great over xc, low 31's for 10,000m and the bugger even pipped me with 2.04 over 800m! Nice bunch the Kent lot - with Philpub et al..

LOL @ Scott regarding Eddie OG
