Conditions were a bit better than last night. 10kph westerly wind with gusts up to 20kph. 15 degrees and 90% humidity. Felt hard to run in as it was so humid.

Reps were 7:17, 7:10. Done with a 4 min walk recovery. Did a 2k warmup and a 2k cool down after finishing.

I will just have to line up again Ewen. At least it is earlier start by half an hour for C2S this year.

Forecast at the moment for Christchurch is min 2 max 14 cloudy with little wind. I pray for no wind.

I'll pray too, Paul! Hope you have a great experience in Christchurch & I'll be thinking of you & willing you onwards!

Thanks for the GU suggestion; wouldn't have thought of that. Have sent off for some Roctane Gels; at $6:00 each I won't be getting too many!

Happy running holiday in Christchurch!

That's a good forecast.

Seriously, I wouldn't worry about getting there 2 hours early and lining up on the front row. With chip timing and the A-start people don't panic about getting near the front. You can just walk in from the back 1/2 hour before the start. When they move the rope forward it's easy to move to near the front.
