No pacer for me - its bad enough having the sweeper on your back !

I get too tired / grumpy to put up with anyone over the last 30m!!

Out for a light run this morning. Pollok Park very busy with all the campers. Ran some of the blue racing line they had painted for the marathon .

After my mega weights / endurance session last week I am now on two weeks taper! Hurrah!! Who needs a gym, just get an allotment . I cracked on at a fair pace last week, so I wont need to do any more heavy lifting now until after my race.

Enjoying watching some of the athletics, but if I see one more swimming race or lawn bowling televised . Actually its not so much the races, its the dire BBC commentary. I thought the World Cup commentary was bad, but this...!

5.5hrs on the allotment today, did all my watering, got loads of tomatoes  YUM!

Then spent the rest of the time clearing my new shed of all the rubbish and junk I have inherited from the previous tenant - hoard-tastic! Luckily they have a skip up there at the moment so I could just put loads of it in that. Some salvageable stuff - one of the regulars was happy as Larry when I gave him a bunch of seed trays and a knackered old crate .

Take pleasure in the small things .

I'm off for a bag of chips - I need the salt !

Yes I read that the first time round as well .

I'm going for a straight finish, inside the 30hrs would be good .

I dnf'ed at 53m at GUCR earlier in the year due to bad stomach issues and lack of food, I think I had a bit of a virus leftover from the Winter as was just exhausted in the build up and quickly knackered on the run.

Feeling much better for this, loads of energy, eating really well with all the good food from my allotment, and raring to go . Centurion also has a positive vibe about it which helps with the mental side of things.

Hopefully the Aussies could tell the difference between a motorway and an A road

Four hours lifting my patio stones, wheel-barrowing rocks, and taking my boards up to the new plot, sweat dripping. Gonna have arms like Sinbad .

I'm not sure they could make the opening ceremony any more camper if they tried ...

Just boinging this one up as its the most recent thread I could find.

2.5wks to go until NDW100.

I assume its so boiling down South the paths must be like rock by now?

Its certainly boiling up here in Scotland anyway!

Enjoy the taper everyone who is in for this...can't wait to get down for another Centurion event - always guaranteed a good feed !
