Never mind the Boat Race, the top sporting event in south west London today was the Kingston Breakfast Run.

I was up at sparrows to get ready for the 0800 start for the 8.2 mile course -- my longest race so far.

The step up from 10k didn't seem to make much difference in the legs, although I deliberately took it easy to make sure I didn't blow out too early.

The slow mass start affected my time and it was 10 minutes before I really got into my stride.

My time was a mediocre 1hr 21m but, more importantly, I now feel much more confident about next weekend's Towpath 10 and, beyond that, the Brussels 20k.
