58.58 Bus? Generally had a hate/Hate relationship with that race tbh. Done about 5 of them.
Oh I forgot to say I spoke to Ronnie O'Sullivan after a Dunstable 10k once, nice guy.
Good reps SW - 60 secs is a bit sparse for a recovery though, just wonder if 90 secs would be better. It's tough to judge it as too short a recovery means the quality goes down. It was tough enough doing the 800's last night with 80 secs!
De-lurking to make a few comments:
1) SG - go for the beano weekend! 3/4 races and 2 footy matches sounds like an opportunity not to be missed!
2) Celebs spotted whilst running - only a very minor celeb in the shape of Christine Walkden off the One Show. I was supposed to be doing a race about 5 or 6 years ago but dropped out through injury - when looking at the results I saw that Ronnie O'Sullivan had taken part, and wouldn't have been too far away from me pace wise if I had done the race.
3) Training is going ok - my 'tempo' pace (by which, without going into the debate about what tempo zone I mean, probably should really be called LT pace) has come down by about 7-10 seconds per mile since last autumn's training block, so I'm hoping for a similar return on 10k race pace in 5 weeks time.
4) Just had to go for a blood test in my lunch break. Raises two questions - 1) will giving 2 vials worth of blood affect my intervals session tonight at all (answer: probably not, you big wuss) and 2) as about half of the 45 people ahead of me in the queue looked to be in their 80s at least, why do people like that choose to go in the lunch time rush when, presumably, they have all day to go?! (A bit like, why do the same demographic choose to go to Tesco (other supermarkets are available) on a Saturday morning and get in the way of the rest of us when, presumably, they could go at any other quieter time of the week?).

My only advice for Endure would be to take some wet wipes and decent toilet roll. I must have spent more time on the toilet than I did running.

Are we allowed to guess which one Ric
Nice one SW.
The Castles one sounds some good sightseeing. Is it castle to castle, or do you get a lift when they pop up randomly mid route?
Iower, that doesn't match me meeting him in the toilets at GSR once
Bus and me also met Sally Gunnell, and I still curse the woman who took a dreadful blurry pic of such an epic meet.
Like some girl at work said, it could be a "pic of you with your mum and dad"
(no offence Bus)
