personal milestone tonight - finally broke the 48min barrier for 6 miles.... 47.38 and 7.56 m/ml avg with last mile fastest at 7.35.Felt pretty good too!The wife didnt really get my excitement when I got back so felt I had to share it lolllNext target is 7.30 m/mls for my 6ml route (45 mins)... if I can get down to that I will have finally got back to where I left off 6 years ago!
Well done Ricky it's a non runner thing. One of our guys wifes has started running with our beginners and is now realising what he got out of running.
Yes, well done Ricky. All I get at home is 'you'll kill yourself' when I try to share my enthusiasm for running. But I never know whether to take that as a warning or as encouragement...
Is your wife checking the insurance policies everytime you go out Paul.
Robin is the new course easier or harder. If I get this balance problem sorted may give it a go I don't think I could cope with uneven ground at the moment.
Well done Ricky. Keep up the good work. Plenty on here who appreciate and understand the buzz you get from it.
HMM, sent you a PM ref. Mournes. Laughed at your joke about your Derry Marathon pacing role!
Ricky, good work on your improving times - have you tried the Citypark parkrun yet?
Robin, I'm really looking forward to Race Over the Glens. Couldn't find the revised route on the Ballymena Runners' website - assume descents into and ascents back out of the Glen still feature!!
Ken, sorry to hear that balance issue is still affecting you, hope you get relief from it as soon as possible.
Off for lunchtime run on this beautiful, chilly day - loving this high-pressure dominated weather pattern!
so, Im off to the launch of the walled city marathon tonight, to see what the craic is with it! . HMM... I too laughed about the pacing..
Alwyn - Citypark parkrun is the one around Craigavon lakes?I work saturday morns so can't make them....I was actually out on a call a couple of saturday mornings ago @ Lakelands which fronts onto the lakes and saw lots of runners - took 5 mins to dawn on me that it was the closing stages of the parkrun!
Eight miles on Sunday morning temperature just around zero. The main rpads were not too bad once you went off them it was slippy. Roll on the Spring.
HMM good pic of you at Ballyclare in Mark's album.
Over 300 entries in for the Walled City Marathon already.
I signed up this morning , gives me something to focus on over these next few frosty months
Fair play to you!
A great place to run in Belfast...Divis/Black mountain
anyone else run the Belfast hills...all on tarmac...a difficult 2.3 miles up...easier coming down!!!....national trust coffee rooms to ease the cold..anyone fancy giving it a go...give me a shout....no I dont own the mountain!
A load of ones out of north belfast run that route every sunday Mark. I've done it a few times but prefer the roads. Isn't it Colin Glen forest park you go into to get to that path? There's an alternative run which takes you up the steepest road I've ever ran - then you turn a corner and have to run up a mountain!
Good wee article on Ballymena runners on ni running. I think Dr Fox used to be my GP when I was a kid.
It's a bit quite on here at the moment. I had agood 5 miler last night. The footpaths were stil a bit icy in places so you had to be careful. I'm going to do my first Portrush Parkrun on Saturday so will be hoping for a low tide and firm sand. Then I'm thinking about going up to Gransha to watch the cross country.
Good luck to anyone racing this weekend.
