Alwyn I have a lot of history with hamstring injuries though thankfully not this year. If an injury keeps occuring it's usually symptomatic of something else e.g. maybe underactive glutes or maybe the hamstrings aren't stong enough or even back related. I do pilates and have a core routine I would do with a load of squats in it to combat that.
Julie Turley is a class act -I was hoping Kerry Harty would be there yesterday to see them battle it out. I almost got cleaned out by another runner at 4k yesterday and she had to listen to some profanities out of me so I felt sorry for her in that regard! Morrison was gone in less than 2k.
trying to decide between dambusters 10mile/10k or waterside half marathon this weekend....any thoughts?
Mark, I know this might be of particular interest to you. I did Waterside half two years ago as part of my Dublin marathon training and got a 16 minute PB. I think that the Dambusters may be a new race - I hadn't heard of it before.
For the other forumites - Mark and I both completed our first marathons in exactly the same time, right down to the very second, and we're hoping that he has a similar experience to mine in Dublin.
Good to see so many of you yesterday at Laganside. Alwyn, it was nice to meet you even if it was just a quick hello.
Paul OH, hope you got sorted out with your time etc.
I'm off to Spain early tomorrow - courtesy of Jimmy's 10k and Down Travel - but I don't think I'll be getting much running done as my knee has gone again. Trainers and painkillers are packed, just in case - it's so hard to resist going for a run in the sun!
Good luck to those doing Waterside next week.
The dambusters races will be awesome, Mark.
That's me confirmed for Waterside - Race no. 489 emailed through today!Mark - agree with Margaret - WHM shud be good for a PB as its nice and flat, Dambusters probably fantastic experience with all that scenery and prob a great training run for Dublin.. I would watch the injuries though if the going is rough/off road.
Alwyn- I'm in Magheralin (moira's easier as the majority haven't heard of Magheralin!)... yes we probably have crossed paths. I would be the grimacing plodder that gets in your way! My runs tend to be late evening dusk/dark apart from LSR which is usually late Sat anoon. Some great routes around country lanes in the area as I'm sure you know all too well.
Well done all who raced tis weekend some cracking times recorded.
Enjoy your holiday well deserved to the volunteer of the year. You have put so much back into the sport since you were injuried.
After last week when I was a bit down as I was struggling with my running I am actually looking forward to Waterside as things have picked up over the last few outings. I hope to meet a few of you there. I am trying to pace one of my girls round to a PB so will be in over the two hours.
http://www.paulryantimecalculator.com/ might be useful to boast of a personal best !
Doing the results in Portglenone tonight hope to see a few of you there.
Portrush Parkrun starts this Saturday first ever baech Parkrun.
HMM looks like we could get a little rain on Sunday. The new course has to be better than the old one. See you there.
Anyone doing the Decathlon HM or 10k? I've signed up for the HM. First time doing a proper HM and hoping for a decent time. Looks like a fast course!
Hi B_Kins I am doing Waterside on Sunday I had looked at the Decathlon and the date did suit.
Thinking of doing Portglenone myself Kenny but not 100% sure yet. Maybe see you there.
Not doing decathlon but sounds like a fast course from what I can hear.
Good luck to everyone in Waterside.
HMM how many until 40? Is it at this point you send us the blog which I haven't read in a long time...
Hoping to get to Portglenone Kenny, although 7.00pm starts can be a problem.
I'm in for Waterside as well, looking forward to it.
See some of you tonight in Portglenone.
No bother to you HMM. Would love a 1 mile race just out of interest! Plenty left in the calendar though you mightn't have much time at the weekends!
Picked up an injury at portglenone last night but hopefully not too bad. Good running Rodney - I think the heart rate stuff will get you there but just be patient. Kenny I saw you in the distance but you were a bit busy.
Over 200 entries last night a lot of new runners who weren't on the system. I think everyone had finished before I started to put in the results. So many people arrived at the last minute. I finally got the results sorted should be up shortly.
TG I hope your injury isn't serious.
Trial run at the Portrush Parkrun this afternoon if I have the energy.
HMM you may double up Parkrun in the morning another race in the afternoon.
