Glad the weather is going to be ok tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing everyone and putting names to the faces. I agree with everyone else about the pre-race nerves! Probably more nervous than most races I've done and we've still got just under a day to go! Luckily I have a parents evening tonight to take me mind off everything.
We just need to turn up with running stuff and a smile tomorrow, right?
Safe journey to all those making their way to Brum. See you at 9.30 if not before!
Hi Stan - enjoy parents evening.
Safe journey's everyone! See you tomorrow!
So excited!! *Bounce Bounce*
no short list Peacey.if you didn't hear then you are not in....they will look at all the successful ones at bootcamp tomorrow and afetr a few days/ weeks will produce the list of the successful 18 ish people and then we are free to ask them questions etc to decide which to vote for in each catergory.........
so start thinking up some tough questions
See you all tomorrow!!
Not too tough Seren nos - unless I don't get through, of course and then you can ask what you like!
I was too nervous with my train time, so I'm hopping on an earlier one.
G&W, Malcs (and anyone I missed)- I'll try and meet up with you at the cafe, if I can find it!
What time are you getting in Gremlin?
8:45, I hope to make it to campus by 9. Is the cafe in the Sports Centre?
Oh not that early then! Not got the first clue of where to go after the train station! I'm sure someone will be around to ask!! short of that good warm up..... walking around the campus for a hour!
Gremlin - I think we're on the same train now I'll be wearing a black jacket with a fur trimmed hood - if you spot me at one end or the other do say hello.
Better get to bed now!
Have arrived in the Midlands, the temperature is a liittle cooler than Cornwall, can not wait till tomorrow!!
Looking forward to meeting everyone
Good luck all lucky bootcampers. Will be looking out for those of you who make it through to the RW vote.
Good Morning Campers!! and Non Campers! I can honestly say that is the worst night sleep I have had in a very long time!! but am I ready for today? Oh yeah!!
On a more serious note a huge thank you to everyone on here! As a new comer the last two weeks have been awesome, sharing the advice, nerves, excitement and just the the amount of good luck everyone at bootcamp has been sent is brilliant!
off to catch a train!!
Have agreat day.good luck and have fun.hopefully you will make friends that you can join in here whoever is the eventual winner
Good luck everybody!
Hope you have a fab day, learn lots and get lots of nice goodies.
Look forward to hearing from you all afterwards as to what you did...
Stay cosy when you can!
Good luck everyone!
Boy its cold out there just like last year!!!! Enjoy your lunch.......
Echo that Sarah - just got home and I'm still buzzing!
I wanted to post here before I conk out
Fantastic to meet you all today, particularly all those who have been posting here.
Sorry about the abrupt end at the station - we all seemed to get split up. Hope you all made it back safely.
Tigger - did you even manage to get on that train?
jenf - you really need to take those granola bars to market
RRR - some less flourescent socks next time please, my eyes are still hurting!
Annabel, Adrian and Mrs Adrian - thanks so much for the company on the way home. My last train was a bit of a struggle without you - by some miracle I woke up in just in time at Orps thus saving me from an embarrassing trip back from the South Coast
I agree with all said so far........an excellent day and thoroughly enjoyed....so much learnt and so much I realised I've been doing wrong. Can't wait to put the advice into practice.......starting tomorrow (not too early though ).
Still kicking myself about the 5km time trial and not going faster.........but I suppose to be only a few seconds away from my old pb and not having done any speed training this year, I shouldn't really complain....I now have an idea how much better I could possibly be.
Annabel & Malcs.....thanks for the company on the train back down to London too.....I think my wife was extremely happy that I could have someone else to talk constantly about running with and save her from feeling the force of it. Hopefully catch up with some of you again if any are taking part in races around London next year.
Good to have met a few of you today.
I just wanted to echo everything thats already been said. Its been a really enjoyable and interesting day.
Thanks to everyone involved.
I hope everyone enjoyed the day and it was great to meet some of you! Had a bit of a nightmare getting back however...maybe my marathon pace might have got me home quicker!
It was fatntastic to get some nuggets of information from Steve, Sam and especially Sarah with regards to recovery and stretching, two aspects which are equally as important as running itself...but ones which I always tend to ignore!
So I guess everyone is going to be refreshing their computers and staying by their phones most of Monday and Tuesday?
