Good decision, and you need to have something to aim for. I'm going to enter as well.

I bit the bullet and entered too. Hoping to redeem myself after a poor showing at the Scottish at the weekend.

Lightweight again. Gonna have to try and be smarter with my diet this time, so I have more energy on the day.

Good stuff... bounce back time 💪👊

I suspect this will be a much bigger field and some very strong LWTs. Around 6:15 won last year 😲

It's all relative, but even though it feels like a poor showing, it wasn't seen like that by us.

Hopefully you will have enough time to adjust, and your recent 2k will have also sharpened you up.

err... I seemed to have had a rash moment this evening and signed up for the 2k just before the deadline for entries closed :shock: B)

So now have 12 days to do some sharpening... trouble is the pencil is blunt and has previously been dropped so breaks all the time :lol:

If was a sort of 'taking part' conversation with my son but he declined, so it's just me. :roll:
