Ray thanks so much for your info. I have seen the route but wouldnt be overly familiar with Derry. I'll need to start incorporating some good hill work into my long runs!! Cheers. G.

thanks Jim , doing Belfast for time , just wanted to take part in Derry for the occasion, thanks for the advice Good luck in Manchester , well done for Belfast and Derry I think the introduction of pacers for the marathon is fantastic it certainly worked for me in Dublin.

Dreaded manflu eventually has stopped me in my tracks - feeling like death warmed up today and coughin up phlegm.

Time to stay in I think ... Very frustrating.

Had a 7 miler planned tonight, rest tomorrow, 7 on sat and then 17 LSR on sun. Thinking I should rest now and if things clear up not run until LSR on Sunday.

Does this sound sensible?

Hi there,

would anyone have an idea of the hilly areas in Derry marathon.

first time entering a full Marathon and slightly concerned about hills!!

Ricky if it's above the neck you can run but if it's in your chest don't run. I did last year and let's just say it's not very good for you!

Cheers TG - aye it's in the chest ..... feet up for a while then. Not happy.

Ricky, I agree with TG , head colds and temps are ok, when it starts creeping into the lungs you have got to respect it or it will really mess you up , frustrating my man very frustrating but you need to take it easy ,you might need to reschedule that lsr or if your feeling well enough scale the miles back a bit , hope your feeling better soon

Good advice - have resisted the temptation to run since last Wednesday & cried off LSR today. Feeling much better and will resume maybe tomorrow evening with an eAsy short run.

Bought a treadmill today for when the weathers bad & as a present for Mrs Ricky W?!... I think...?! Not running this last few days has been expensive!

Good man Ricky , went over on my ankle on Friday and had to scrap Lsr as well hope to do it tomorrow
03/02/2013 at 21:42
Hope it's not too nasty Martin? Always something to scupper our plans isn't there!
03/02/2013 at 22:24
Nah not too bad Ricky , bit of loose ground going too quick , went over slightly pain shot up into my calf so cut run short and headed home , 2 days off and it's fine , as you say there's always something it's amazing how you can do all the training and one tiny wee thing can really mess things up, better now though (touches all wooden things in room)

i have had a bit of a temperature over the week end. I felt good after Thursdays 5 miler and thought things were on the up. I went to the gym on Friday morning and came out with a headace and then the shivers. I did just over 7 yesterday felt good but the legs were dead on the hills.

Does anyone know if there are pacers at Larne Half like Lisburn provided?

04/02/2013 at 20:18
Folks , I don't know if anyone is interested but they are having a Belfast half this year Sept 23rd , city hall to Mary peters , more or less up hill the whole way, but might be worth a punt

Sorry Mark meant "finishing at" Mary Peters , just been added to marathon website,details to follow etc etc , finishing in the new Mary Peters might be quite cool though
04/02/2013 at 23:33
Speaking of quite cool , just been out moving our cars down to the main road , snow falling quite heavy,good luck for the morning everyone (was doing 12 miles in morning,not looking so hot)

Larne have pacers.....usually use some of the Belfast Mara pacers..

i have to admire the dedication of my beginners. They keep coming back for more last week we had wind and horizontal rain last night wind rain sleet and snow. Once you get this running bugs it takes more than a little bad weather to stop you.

Lisoider,Thanks do we sign up or is it a case of on the day as Larne do not advertise this?
