I've not been out yet today, 3 degrees this morning in belfast so I fully expect to be freezing and am not looking forward to the temperature!
I also plan to do Larne but won't be signing up just yet as have been bitten by injury in the past. I'll enter before closing date though.
I was planning to have a good go at a parkrun tomorrow but I'm not sure conditions will be too good for it at that time of the morning based on weather predictions!
I can now confirm - it is not warm out there and if you are running wear leggings!!
i have serious doubts about my run tomorrow being outside! i thnik ill end up on a treadmill in the gym!! take care anyone whos out in those conditions!!
Think we're going to get off relatively lightly compared to parts of England & Wales ... not much more snow forecast . Just to be pretty much hovering around freezing point all weekend.I've a run scheduled in for tomorrow anoon & sunday morning - it'll happen rain, hail, ice or snow! Nice one Martin on the arctic run!
HMM - you too are a snow running maniac like Martin .... short sleeves too, impressive! That's a interesting weekend long run you have ahead of you - something different is always good... it sometimes gets repetitive running similar routes around home so thats something to look forward to.My eldest has just informed me she needs dropped to the train station @ 0658 in the morning so I might just squeeze a 6 miler in before work @ 9am
You're all mad. But then I'm just jealous. I'm still nursing a stress fracture,which I picked up a month ago, so can't run at all, For the meantime, I'm keeping up some cardio fitness by swimming, on the cross trainer, and now trying a bit of spinning. So it's not so bad.
You're still mad, though.
I had entered for Run Forest Run tomorrow but it has been postponed. Can't say I'm disappointed as I wasn't looking forward to the journey from Belfast in that weather.
I'm on early-morning driving duty as well, so not sure if I can get to Waterworks parkrun.
Strangely mild afternoon today - I think it was mainly because the biting wind from the last few days. I'm following (roughly) an ASICS 1/2 training plan so I was down for a 5.5 mile build-up run between 6.36 and 7.16 m/m - felt tough enough.
Martin, yes as TG said, Waterworks parkrun is on every Saturday morning, all year round. We even put on extra events on Christmas and New Year's Day. It would be great to see you if you could make it over some week.
This morning 71 parkrunners made it to the Waterworks despite the wintery conditions. Thankfully it was just slushy rather than icy, so it was able to go ahead without any problem. Even with the other parkruns happening in Belfast, we're still attracting big numbers and had 187 last week.
Good to see you this morning Paul OH. End of parkrun plug
