Muddy - I used to use that McMillan race calc a lot, and I was always blown away by what it reckoned I should be doing for the short races versus achieved long ones!
I'm sure at times it's given me 16.25-16.30 type fare, which I've obviously just about been within 30secs off a few times.
My 2 x mid 34 10ks gave a 75.41 half, so I think i'd struggle to match McMillan off a low 77.
Having said that, clearly as well as probably not having squeezed 5k quite as much as the other distances potential wise, I did have a load of goes at 5k last year, whereas I've done only 1 either 5m/10k in 2018! It no doubt helps to have a few goes at a distance, to learn it a bit more, and in case weather or vagaries of life kick in.
Dean - I hadn't even thought of that, I thought as he's only just turned 40, you have that 5 year comfort blanket to never be in the same category!
He looks to coach one heck of a cast on his PO10 account, so I think you're safe on that particular record, as long as he doesn't randomly dip into this thread on this page
Have to be careful sometimes though, as Bus once told me he was greeted by some local face in our area, who has run for her country, who has never posted on this forum as far as I'm aware, who referred to me as my forum name!! That's disturbing!
Hopefully won't be too windy at the Ealing mile tomorrow. Last year was fairly windy on one half of the route, and saw me record a 5.08. That actually stayed as my fastest "1M" for the year, on po10, as the Gosport one was a wall of wind, and 5.10Gosport is actually a good 4-5 seconds quicker of a course, so that 5.10, in faster form really says it all about that wind that day
Luckily, I know I put a 4.57 shift in at the relay, but that has to count as a different category unfortunately!
However, just looking forward to a fun little turnout, justifying this ridiculous amount of time off work I've taken with a little trip, and get the Datchet 2019 album started up in earnest As well as obviously, trying the Vaporflys out in a mileage conscious manner!
On a pansy level, I did about 15mins of weights and core last night. Gentle stuff, low reps, very low weights.
But I can certainly feel even that in my stomach and shoulders today! What a pansy!
Sorry. Never mind.
Ynnec - why delete your review? i was chuckling along reading it. think you had most of us bang to rights!

A guy who Ric infuriates over on clubhouse, apparently did a critique of our "styles".
Although I thought you and I had done similar to decent effect a few pages back
He is Dachs and I claim my £5.
Got SG spot on, with his hidden GoPro so he can give a second by second account of each race - reviewing it back at home
