OK that's me done. Nowt more to do except eat food, get out the bubble wrap and bring on Sunday. Just did a 5 mile tempo at marathon pace - at 6.54 it wasn't quite sub3 pace, but with a slower first mile and some bobbing and weaving with pedestrians, few crowded tube station entrances and crossing roads, it probably would have been more like sub3 pace. That's not to say I believe I'm in 2.59 shape. Because I'm realisitic. I believe I can probably settle at 6.50 pace for a while and see what happens, I also, believe I've enough long runs in the legs. Whether I've enough miles in the legs will see. At the best with perfect conditions, fuelling, energy levels,maybe I'm knocking on the door of 3 hours. The main target will be to just have a go - and enjoy the race, and try to have some banter along the way to eat up the miles, till we get to the nasty bit.
So, Abingdon? whos in and wants to say hello? DanA, Dr Dave Al_P, Ryan - all the speedsters - and little old Jimbob. Anyone else?
Meet up? - i'll be in London Heathside vest - sunglasses on my head ....
