Oops DS - I forgot about you.
Just noticed entry date for Lisburn had been extended to Friday, so I've just entered the 10km race this morning. Was going to do a run next Wednesday morning and then go to watch in Lisburn but just decided to enter and run instead.
Hi Rodney..really gutted I cant make Dervock...local marathon also that day, 2miles from my folks house so I really couldnt turn that one down
Wow, DS - that is nuts! you clearly are mental!
Completed the Downpatrick to Saintfield leg of the "Real Relay" this morning. Joe ran with me to Crossgar and then protected my back from rush hour traffic as an outrider in car. Handed it over to Neal Skelton.
Hats of to the Guys who took it to the top of Donard overnight enroute from Hilltown and well done Murlough AC getting it from Newcastle to Downpatrick on a wet morning.
Good luck to HMM for leg 205 Bellaghy to Ahoghill this evening....
Is this the way The Olympic torch should have been carried around the country? More real runners involved and not a bus in sight.
There will be a training run around the new dervock course on Saturday 23rd June meeting in the Dervock car park (centre of village) 10am. This is an open invitation to anybody who wants to come along and as race director Bryan Edgar says experience first hand the fast downhill sections on the new look course!!! Looking forward to seeing you there!!
Well done to the real relay gang. You've got a point Lisoider.
I hope to be able to make that run in Dervock Kenny. Will see if any others are interested from club.
Managed 1 set of intervals last night and hamstring was fine. Didn't do the 2nd set to be safe and also because I'm racing in Antrim tomorrow night.
Well done in the Real Relay Lisoider.
4miles recovery run last night in the pouring rain. Hope conditions aren't too bad in Antrim tonight.
DS, that sounds amazing! I am soooo in awe of you guys on this forum
That was an amazing event for you. All over now bar the tattoo......
Very enjoyable race report DS, congratulations on a fabulous achievement!!
On a more depressing note, what is that weather not like!! I'm sure anyone at Antrim tonight got soaked to the skin. I really hope it dries a bit in the morning as I'm hoping for 15 miles & I do not want to do it in that weather!!
I knew you would! Congratulations on joining the Ironman club You can show off your tattoo with pride
Great report DS well done. See you in Dervock sporting your new Tatoo
Great report DS.
Friday nights race in Antrim was actually 5.6miles long and mostly on trail. I had a bad run as was tired from the start but it was a nice course. Count it as a decent training run at 6.40pace. I did 16.05miles on Saturday morning but had a lie in and did my run arouind half eleven. Managed decent pace (7.35ish) until 10 miles and then slowed in the next 6miles. Happy enough with this run as was still feeling tired but wanted to get the miles done. (just under 51miles this week). This is my 3rd week in a row with over 50miles so boiund to be feeling it, but hope to continue this for another 2 weeks and then taper for Dervock. Will just run a bit slower in training and hope to be feeling more energetic for Lisburn 10k and RTB.
Looking forward to running round Dervock course next Saturday Kenny.
My daughter is singing at a school concert tomorow night, so I won't get to training but will do my run in the morning and that will give me more time to recover for Lisburn on Wednesday night.
Listen to your body Ridney.
I'll not be there on Saturday as I have kids training in Limavady at 10. Should be a good turn out with runner taking the chance to preview the new course.
Still no running as I don't feel 100%. Went down yesterday for the trial run of McArthur's home coming. We are pulling McArthur from Ballymoney Station to the Town Hall. The reactment takes place on the 10 July at 8.00pm.
Congratulations to Joe Quinn East Down AC- awarded MBE for services to local community and Athletics. Fully deserved
I agree Lisoider well deserevd.
Yes well done to Joe Quinn. I had read that in the Newsletter.
Anyone else doing half or 10k in Lisburn? I'm in for the 10k.
