Hi Shades, are you or anyone else taking part on Sunday. Otherwise it seems it might be just vava and myself.

Training was going well until I did something to a muscle around the hip. Still not gone completely despite a bit of physio so a bit of the same this year I reckon. If I can run the first 9 miles and run-walk the rest, I am probably looking at something around 5:30. If it wasn't for the scenic course and a natter of two along the way, I probably would stay at home.

It seems that the initial three mile loop has been dropped and will feature in the second-half instead. Didn't get anything in the post other than my race number so I'm basing that assumption on something I saw on the Nice Work website.

Surrey Phil No, sorry I haven't entered this year.

That sounds quite uncomfortable, I hope you can get round without too much discomfort. Hopefully you won't have the unseasonal weather that we've just had this weekend.

Good luck.

Sadly, I am withdrawing as I can still feel some soreness. Having not run for a month plus the inevitable pain in the hip/bursar wouldn't make it as enjoyable as usual. That's my ever-present run over!

I did offer to marshal following a recent e-mail from Nice Work but they have enough.

That's a shame Phil, spectating and a leisurely lunch instead perhaps.

Got something to say?
