mind the gap

June 26, 2007

All alone in the coffee shop today.  The last couple of days I’ve been here with Kiwi’s and Aussies but they’ve left for a race in Ostrava.  Carmen Douma-Hussar and her husband we’re also here yesterday but today they are exploring the english countryside.  If you want to catch up on the weather I’ve been having here just check out Wimbledon as I’m pretty close by.  Anyways, its been raining quite a bit and sometimes only getting up to 15… I guess I’ll take that over scorching hot temps right now.  There are tons of runners around here as I saw a few Kenyans in Bushy Park and Mo Farah on my way back to the B&B.  They should put on a race right here at St. Mary’s as there are probably 10-15 guys who could break 13:20 right here in Teddington. 

Finally got a proper 11pm to 8:30am sleep last night.  No waking up for a couple hours in the middle of the night was nice.  So now I should be used to the time difference.  I have one small track session (300’s and 200’s) tomorrow before I leave.  My session on sunday went well as I hit (or came close enough) to my targets.  With getting over travel and coming into my taper I should only feel better come race time.  Last week was still 140km (86 miles) but, since I travelled later in the week the mileage was front-end loaded. 

I rode on the upper deck of a double decker bus yesterday to do a little tourist stuff since I’m here. And I’m quite enjoying the accent here.  Instead of saying eh they say right.

The startlists are up! 2 guys with 13:09 PB’s, a 13:15 guy, one more Moroccan (who should be good since he’s coming all the way from Morocco) and then myself and Paul Morrison.  The good part is that there is a rabbit supposed to go through 3000m in 8:03.
