Thames Path 100

RE Benson Lock, the current diversion has you continuing down the high street, crossing the bridge, rather than joining the Thames Path, then turning left onto Benson Lane and basically following that to Benson, with a turn off the A4074 taking you into the village - so the river crossing is in Wallingford rather than Benson. It's quite straightforward, and hopefully unnecessary, as the lock is 'supposed' to be open in time. I'll jog over there and check the weekend before.

I have no idea what trainers to wear if it's muddy, my trail shoes are in a poor state, but I shouldn't buy a new pair at the moment.

And e-mail from Centurion today as well, nearly there now, well the start line at least.

Win for WiB! In a frankly stupid time of 6.11.

I don't get on that well with tapers, so I'll just cut back a little bit for the last two weeks.

I will definitely wobble a lot in the last few weeks, I tend to swing between feeling daunted and feeling excited.

Good luck all, enjoy the day - except for you WiB, in which case, enjoy the 6 hours - crazy!

Parking anywhere in Oxford is a nightmare, T Rex, so I'd be surprised if it was easy, especially with it being so near the centre.

I like your road/trail shoe 50/50 idea, I might follow suit on that one.

The path is still a bit marshy in places between Wallingford and Culham, nothing too bad though, and as Torq says, it's amazing considering it had been under several feet of water all winter. The signs appear to remain standing.

Going okay I think. TP is very runnable around my way, a bit marshy in spots, and the seemingly ever-present diversion at Benson lock.

Are you where you want to be right now, do you think?

What does a taper look like in your world, WiB? Just trot around at 6.30m\ms or something?

Ran 20 miles on the path from Wallingford yesterday, and apart from the usual closure of Benson Lock, and a marshy section near Culham, it was all pretty dry and runnable, which is remarkable really considering what it was like just a few weeks ago.

Thought my Garmin had failed on me today, which for me is a terrible fear, right up there with Sky Sports crashing.
