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.
I am in the 1/2 Rodney - but not expecting much I have been struggling at race paces recently...I think still tired from double marathons in April/May.
Lisoider, I'm struggling with race pace at the moment too. Not doing much speed work because of hamstring, which seems to be improving, but trying to keep the miles up around 50-55 per week in preparation for Dervock Marathon. Another 2 weeks of this mileage and then ease back. Might ease back a bit at the start of next week to see if I can run a decent time at Round the Bridges but will put in more miles after later in the week. Haven't eased back this week for Lisburn. I did 7 miles yesterday and 4.5 easy miles this morning. Would still like to break 40minutes tomorrow night but not sure if I will.
I'm in for the half at Lisburn, only my second race since BCM apart from parkruns.
Still thinking of doing the Dervock marathon. If Lisburn goes ok, I'll send the form .
Paul I hope it goes well tomorrow night. Good luck to everyone racing. I won't be able to make it tomorrow night as I am still trying to ctach up after being off sick last week.
We have over 160 entries for Dervock in the three races. A lot of people have said they will run have still to enter so we're hoping for a last minute rush in entries.
Good Luck to all running the Lisburn races!
I'm doing the Half. Hoping to get within 4 to 5 mins of my Larne Half time - after training disruption and the fact that I think Lisburn is at least 2 mins slower course than Larne, anyone got a view on that?
Ken, I hope you do get a rush in late entries - sounds like you and others have put a lot of effort into organising (as per previous post, I'm at Open golf championship or would be there!).
Having previously put off idea of my first marathon to late next year - am considering Berlin - I have started to think about the possibility of Dublin this year. Bit of a shock, though, to realise a 18-week training schedule begins next Monday!!
I'm doing the 10k tomorrow night at Lisburn - don't think my time will be great but I'll give it a go. Good luck to everyone and hope we don't get any of these heavy showers that are about.
Hello all - New on here and just back to running since mid March this year after a 6 year break! In at the deep end for my first event since 2006 and doing the half tomorrow night with hopes of lasting the distance, not getting in anyone's way and dragging my new "slim" 15 stone carcass round in under 2 hours. My Half PB of 1:41 at Larne in 2006 is a distant memory!Alwyn - would agree Lisburn course is more challenging than Larne. Second half is tough and deceptively hilly. Sprucefield hill at the 6 mile mark generally regarded is the tough hill but elevation wise the climb is greater (according to runkeeper mapping) around mile 8 (Ravernet rd/Waterloo Rd) and is the bit I find can take the pace out of the legs and make for a tough last third.Enjoy the evening all - forecast is fairly good.
