Banny Abysmal, the whole morning. I got everything wrong. Left late and even had problems at the start line with my ear phones, mobile phone/mp3, stopwatch, No pins for my number, EVERYTHING! The run itself was great. two laps around from the stadium, Gurnell Pool down to Perival BR Station. A frozen morning with icy ground all about but a beautiful sunny empty sky. Wonderful to run in.
Definately better with more to come. Used a Thames Valley Harrier as my hare, we spoke after and thanked each other for helping. Nearly turned my ankle over just before 4 miles on the pavement edge on a bend. Nothing else.
Great stuff. Hayes & Harlington Road Runners 39:41 39:41 42:00 41:39 53.84

DaveH Entry OTD and left late as I couldn't find the shorts which were obviously exactly where I'd put them in the drawer that they always live in.

Yopped (again) on the back straight and lost 15-20s, but pleased to get sub-30 given the conditions and anti-speed work over the last 3 months. Unaffiliated 29:54 29:54 29:30 29:54 71.32
Dull Napoleon™ Spent most of the race convinced the mile markers were in the wrong place. A real shock to take 31 secs off my PB especially as it's just two weeks before my 52nd birthday Trent Park Running Club 30:26 30:26 31:30 30:26 79.75

Millyvp Hmm - didn't feel so good for this one!  Think I started too fast and then flaked a bit and had to have a little walk just before the 4 mile mark....thanks soo much for all the support of the runners passing me - particulary the guy in the hat who I spoke to just before the race re: my fleece top (whether or not to wear it) who told me I had done all the hard work and should keep going...helped no end and worked!!  THANK YOU!!  Should have looked up a little more on the course as when I approached the clubhouse I thought I was done and when I spotted people running a lap of the racetrack it was a killer....I thought - do I reeeeally have to do that!!!  Got there in the end but think I should have managed it in just under 37 mins.....wasn't at my best today by any means!!  Glad I did it though!! Unaffiliated 38:05 38:05 38:05 63.48
Muds Forgotten what a 5 feels like on the road! Trying to race myself fit. Small amount of strides, fartlek & tempo. Not yet ready to hit Intrval training properly. Forgot to start watch. 5:50 is mile 18:52 last 3. Need to train & practice!!
Good event well organised. Watford Joggers 30:53 30:53 32:30 30:53 77.95
philinstone -4 degrees when I scraped the ice of the car this morning - but with 3 layers, gloves and a beanie on I was hot after 2 miles..took the hat off and pushed to the end - 

tied up a bit in the last mile...could have acheived the 38:20 - but on the whole - really pleased with the pacing at this stage in my training Stone Master Marathoners 38:29 38:29 38:20 38:29 56.12
Simo Totally wrong race strategy.
I felt strong so I started fast... never again! Anyway I start believing that a 5mile is not so different from a 5k, both must be run at full steam, both really hard for a slow starter like myself, so maybe starting fast was not the only eason why I wanted to pull out half way through! Still, I did it below the 40 minutes mark, which was my last minute bet with a running mate! Sweet feeling! :-) Ealing, Southall & Middlesex AC 37:15 39:54 45:00 39:54 63.14
