Been on the bench since last Saturday after putting my back out lifting the shopping!! Managed 6.3m slow tonight without any pain so looks like I'll be starting Sunday- legs a bit rusty though....or maybe the rest will make me fresh
See you all on the day. I'll be wearing my blue and white TROTs vest- there'll be a few of us though
