C75 don't know what going on there it's just opened for me. You can enter on the night at the Joey Dunlop Centre from 5.00pm. There was no online entries for this race. See you Friday.
HMM I went to training last night and was so tired I wasn't going to bother running. 500m x 8 1 min recovery ran the first 6 then blasted the last 2, 20secs faster than the first 6. I got a good nights sleep last night and will make my decision of Friday morning.
HMM, how many races/events have you got left to complete for the 40 at 40 title???
Kenny what time does the kids 1k race start at on Friday might come up and let my son run it and then watch the main race.Still to tired and sore fromDervock to even think about running myself
6.15 Jim. I know how you feel and I didn't run.
Just in from my last hard run before Cookstown on Sunday.Ran a hilly 9 miler at a perceived effort I felt comfortable with for completing 13.1 - surprised to average 8:40 m/mls for the run and at the end felt like I could have run another 4 at the same pace. (I know I shouldnt run at race pace but its all in the head for me - I like to know what I am capable of come race day!)That's 1 full m/ml faster than I ran at Lisburn - what a difference a month makes! However I'll not too excited until I have completed Cookstown - bit of a killer by all accounts.Other than Reiki - anyone else entered for Sunday?
C75 - I did 2 weeks v slow running but over the last week have been back doing hill reps & tempo runs. Intend to do keep doing my weekly LSR nice and slow and
ooops lost part of previous post..... less than 70% MHR.Rolling I can cope with! I feel much stronger on the hills now than I did in Lisburn - able to maintain pace on the hills now fairly comfortably.Looking forward to it!
Good luck to anyone running tonight. Looks not too bad up here tday a bit cooler with the odd shower. See you on the start line.
I had to stop running all together with my knees giving me trouble, then gradually reintroduce it, just jogging for a few moments now and again on my walks. I'm not at about 25min of S L O W running at a time, with two days of rest between. I'm itching to put the garmin on again to see how far I'm going etc; but dare not to as I'll start trying to do better each time and end up injured again. Lots of stretching post run seem to help as well.
I've been avoiding here as I knew I'd end up pushing myself more and setting myself back again.
Hope everyone is well and enjoying their running/racing over our "summer". (I use the term "summer" loosely....)
Good to hear from you again Evie May sorry to hear about your problems. Take it easy and build up again. I find if I don't do my stretching routine everyday I end up with problems.
Ran the NFU Mutual 5 last night not my best time but glad I got out there and did it. Good to see some of you there well done C75 on your 4th place.
It's hard to believe, a drink to help us run faster and it's a beer!http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2012/07/27/anti-olympics-banned-beer-brewdog-video_n_1710775.html?utm_hp_ref=uk-lifestyle&icid=maing-grid7%7Cuk%7Cdl5%7Csec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D119794
Yeah Kenneth, I've learned the hard way to do stretches everyday! Good on you getting out there for the Mutal 5.
Well done HMM. The Seven Sevens, that's the Mourne Mountain one, right? 3rd time, you are a glutten for punishment. :P
LOL, lovin the beer Paul!!
Good luck to all doing Cookstown, I found it quite tough last year! Strangley enough it was my first "training" run for Dublin marathon. Ah, the memories.
Loved Cookstown!!! Really glad I came over. It wasn't THAT bad!!
Glad you enjoyed it Reiki - thought it was a great course also! Not as bad as expected - hills were short & sharp in the most and a few showers during 2nd half were very welcome. Had a good run and felt very strong all race - and the first time don't feel stiff, sore or tired afterwards - in fact feel like I could go out and run it again (tomorrow morning will probably be a different story though)Managed 1:56 which I was very happy with and a 10min improvement on Lisburn just over a month ago.
How'd u do time wise Reiki?
