    I expect some kind of arrangement will be made which will involve Blues getting a much larger section than just the away end.... perhaps two stands each.

    I work in Birmingham and seems to be a lot of anticipation at the novelty value of this fixture.

    I'm a little more worried that there could be trouble (CCFC vs Blues games have had their fair share over the years) which could damage the goodwill between the fans, and possible repercussions with the ground share... although it's more likely that the fans would take the thick end of that rather than the club.

    We've also got Sunderland coming up soon at 'home'... which if anything like last year's games then forget about Iran, it could be like WW3 and WW4 rolled into one around Small Heath and New St Station...

    18 miles in the cheviot hills, trying to a) push as hard as I could without ‘racing’ and b) make do with as little fuel as i could. Managed 3h30 on a bowl of porridge for breakfast and basically 2 wee samosas a couple of hours in, so mission accomplished.

    back to the office now.

    Did a new parkrun for me at Warwick Racecourse... 90% flat as a pancake, except for a hill at halfway which was nothing major.

    A fairly good standard... on a very icy morning where the start was diverted around the very worst parts, I ran a steady (if not lacklustre) 19:27, and there were a good 25 people in front of me.

    5 miles, 46 minutes.
    Cars were iced up, but underfoot was fine. Canal and quite roads.

    Yesterday's training turned out to be a 10 mile "interval" session. I have a running group at work who are taking on the Stourbridge Stagger again this year so we all set off on a bit of a recce. 2 of us (and my dog) were comfortable at sub 5min kms so it turned into a bit of a blast for a 1000m followed by a recovery period whilst the remainder caught up. Plenty of ice, mud and fog to spice things up. Unfortunately the lack of visibility also resulted in 2 runners getting lost and doing an alternative 5 mile road run. Hopefully won't be doing that race day...

    Approx 15km/250m
    Going downhill fast

    5 miles, 50 minutes, 400ft.
    Probably picked the wrong day to add a little climb in to the run after my ankle turn. A glass of red either side of half-time and then a large Scapa to celebrate the win last night took their toll this morning

    Up the Clarets!
