I managed to get 5 miles in last night. Missed the rain and it was as cold and windy as it has been recently.
I hope you see a few of you at Roe Valley Trail Run on Saturday. Then I need to get into double figures on Sunday if I'm for doing Larne.
Kenny looking forward to seeing you at the Roe Valley, first time there for me.
Ricky, if you're keen on a track finish the Les Jones 10k in May starts and finishes on the MPT as well (with a couple of tough climbs in between ).
No probs Alwyn - will text you later on..HMM - just got shot of my cold - trained on with it but it went to my chest and had to take 5 days off last week. Take it easy!Paul that 10K sounds good - come to think of it I've never done a 10k so might be a good one to do.
Not a good weekend then Martin I hope you run today gets it out of the system.
We had a good turnout at Roe Valley with 98 runners completing the 8K course. it was a bit muddy in places with all the rain and snow of the last couple of weeks taking it's toal. I hope you enjoyed it Paul.
i didn't make it out yesterday as I took a stomach bug on Saturday evening so I'm still waiting to make it into double figures.
Agree about the rubbish rugby weekend, Martin! My sporting weekend was saved by Coleraine's last minute winner at Ballymena in the Irish Cup!
Good if very wet run with Ricky yesterday - though instead of feeling fresh after not running since the previous Sunday, my legs felt pretty heavy in the last 3-4 miles. Still feeling the ab-strain but have decided this morning, I just need to man-up and get back to a proper training schedule for the Half-mara series!!
That's a very good turnout , Kenny. When my golf was cancelled Saturday morning and the football at Ballymena was looking unlikely to get the go-ahead, I was wishing I could have been at Roe Valley. You're not having much luck with niggles and illness, Kenny. Maybe we need to take a leaf out of Ricky's book with regards to superstitions - he actually sought out a telegraph pole at one stage yesterday in order to 'touch wood', having commented on his current injury-free experience!!
Kenny your having a terrible run of things at the minute ,I hope things pick up for you soon.
Alwyn , atleast Coleraine saved your weekend, that was a good run out at a good pace despite the terrible weather , heading out for my long run later , freezing out there but atleast its not raining (looks for telegraph pole)
Yes Kenny, I really enjoyed the run, well worth the journey. Thanks to you and your team for the day, organisation was superb. I had been told about the hill but didn't realise that I would have to do it three times! I'm just glad I brought an old pair of shoes for the mud.
Kenny, as useual Springwell lay on another great event thankyou from Ballymena Runners and personally me and my family who were up supprting.
Alwyn it could be worse - you could be a Liverpool supporter... pants well & truly pulled down by WBA at Anfield this evening.Well done to all the hardy XC men @ Roe Valley.Hope the LSR went well Martin - u hopefully got a dry one.Did a slow 3ml recovery run on the treadmill this evening ... never done one of these before having always preferred to take a rest day after LSR so kind of an experiment for me. Will see how I feel in comparison tomorrow when back into the first speed session of the week.
Alwyn I would do pilates regularly and would swear by it. Not quite the same as yoga(some similar concepts) but very beneficial to running none the less. Both would be very good at making the body a bit more tolerant to the mileage we would do.
Might do a parkrun this saturday and see where the legs are at then stormont next week. Hearing stories that stormont might not be fit for it mind you. Anyone on the inside know of what the story is with the ground there?
