You can go off people you know...only joking! That's awesome. You're going at quite a lick if you're matching 'John, I'm only dancing'! I don't know if that made me laugh more than the bit where you said "I've just done my 5k run..." like it was a really throw away comment! A true runner now! :-)

Could be , or I'm doing something wrong , but twilight is the same , she hasn't got hers either. , I can't see any other way of requesting it though , I email them , it gets sent & I get same automated reply back

Amazing time Do you think your time is improving because you are more relaxed now you are a graduate?

Could be , never thought of that .

Well done -after all my moaning in previous weeks I'm due for my last run of week 9 in the morning -yikes a bit intimidated by it.
