According to my weather forecast dry until 2pm wind will be ok.

my bag is packed gels and drinks ready. 

Wrap up warm folks as 8am will be cold. Final decision to make is vest top with t.shirt underneath or just vest top.

going for a nice walk now in the woods stretch legs then relax. 

Not doing as much carboload as normal as I found I get too heavy. 

This could be an interesting race

I'm finding this taper week hard, not used to hardly any running. Went out on a works due last night. A few beers, so u can c I'm not taking this race as serious as others I've done. Last run tomorrow between 4/6m slow followed by easy gym workout.

looking forward to carboload.

Hi AWC- I don't think I will do a 100m race again as I'm bloody terrible at it!!!

400m really hard however 1500m pretty good. 

Went for easy run yesterday 3m and today 4.2m easy. Legs feel tight and now the mind is playing tricks about how long ago last long run was. Need to get my mind right and look at all the good training I've done in past. No running for me until sat which will be a very social 5.5m run and then pub (no drinking) with Striders friends. Most of them have done there marathon either Brighton or London, 6 of us doing MK. 

How is everyone else feeling, how is training going.

Taper week started, we'll sort of watched the London marathon yesterday and had a chill out day. Tonight went to the track for  running club. Competed in the 100m (came last) 400m (came 6th) and the 1500m (came 7th out of 14) 

then we finished 3rd in the 100m relay. Overall great fun with the worst event the 400m which was really hard. Feeling good and will now take it easy with some easy runs planned.

AWC I think you are going to have a good race u seem to be running well.

Hi guys, don't worry my Monday run is only short and I won't bust a gut. My other runs will be short and sweet and very slow.

i don't like to taper too much as I like to keep to a usual pattern if poss. 

Senorb 7:50 per mile looks good I wish I was in that bracket.

looking forward to watching LM tomorrow and football so a very relaxing day
