He better not be - given his current form our flight will have left before he finishes... I scoped out feasibility of doing the half prior to flying home on Saturday - very neat connecting time and my club coach would kill me...

Nice and consistent tonight, all 1k reps under 6mm pace and a 1 second spread between slowest and fastest :-)

Baz, I needed that boost you gave me, it was the perfect tonic that day... probably still owe you a beer for that too.

got to the track tonight to find the football team had it (well the middle anyway and they dont like runners running whilst playing. Anyway found a new loop round home that is about 625m long, so 550m loops with 75m recovery, splits started at 2:18 and finished with 2:11 :-)

Not sure how much help I was RFJ. I was toiling when you came past and then when you said you were hanging in for a PB I decided to try and help get you there, with try being the operative word and within 100m you were digging deep for a well deserved PB leaving me behind.

Primarily as I did want you to overtake me.... pride and all that works wonders.. esp when a PB is on the line and that was all I needed at that point....
