Nicole, Thanks it is now making me more determined to enter next year if I am rejected from London 2012.
Badbark, Seeley should be slightly faster than Bangor.
Got 6 miles done this morning before work and felt good. Got 94 miles for the month, so hopefully will keep building up gradually now and avoid any more injuries.
All the best to the ultra men tomorrow at Causeway and also to anyone doing the shorter marathon, half marathon or 10k distances.
5.8 miles last night another hot evening.
Good luck to all racing tomorrow.
HMM and Robin into London any rejections.
Well done Nicole, its great to here it was so posative a run in the end, after your injuries. Sounds like a great event, worth considering.
Got a rejection for London, so I'll wait and see how my first marathon in Dublin turns out next month before I make any more plans.
Good luck to everyone racing this weekend, looks like the weather will be a bit cooler for you all.
London rejection here too.
10k race from the Waterworks on Sunday morning - anyone going? Different route this year, I hope it's accurately measured (the hills are a bit easier too, Kenny).
I'm a London reject too. And the fleece is just not my colour
DS got in though.
Sorry to hear that Ferdy, my impression of achilles injuries are from such reports like yours and it's something I wouldn't wish on anyone.
I wathched the causeway 26.2 runners set off from Portbalintrae and then went down to White Park Bay to watch them through. The Ultras leaders were looking strong and fresh in both directions.
Came home and walked my dogs for an hour or so. But, still inspired by the runners, I set off at half four for my 20 miler. I cruised it at just under my LSR pace and felt like I could have clocked up a few more. Legs were a bit heavy at 18+ miles but breathing was steady, pace was sound and body felt good.
Just a 22 miler next week and I'll start to cut back a little. Not sure of sustaining my originally planned race pace over the full distance on the day, but that might be just nervousness.
Well done to everyone who raced yesterday. The weather was kind as it has been the last three years. I cycled home from work on Friday evening and got soaked to the skin.
I got about 12 miles this morning. The overnight rain cleared to leave a nice morning. I felt good today.
Well done Davy the hard work nearly over.
