10.61 miles banked this morning. First time into double figures since Christmas. It was a lovely morning for running once the sun burned through. Lovely to see the snowdrops in the hedgerows.

Too good a morning not to do it Martin. 4 weeks not to get sorted for Larne.

Nice one Kenny - great morning for running.

Myself and Alwyn got 20 done. First 14 mls @ 9.26 pace and lifted it a bit for last 6 @ 8.42 pace.

Hard work last 3 ... Alwyn kept me motivated during those last couple to maintain the pace & our last mile was our fastest @ 8.28

And Martin I didn't touch a telegraph pole all run although I did greet a few solitary magpies.

Ricky and Alwyn well done the first big 20 , Ricky always best to be safe were magpies are concerned

Can't be too careful Martin  ... a slow recovery 3 miles on the treadmill this evening after yesterdays long run ... not a magpie in sight this evening.

Terrible Martin when this work interferes with our running.

Good wee session with my beginners group. There is a good stretch in the evenings. Ir was a bit colder than I expected.

I saw blue sky & sunshine so bunked off a bit early this afternoon to get my tempo run done - 1 mile warm up and then 5mls @ 7.30 pace.

That's me signed up for Larne  ..... I see on the entry list a certain athlete no. 467 who is in my category  ... you know who you are!

Thanks Mags - looks good.

20/02/2013 at 18:27
Looking forward to it also Kenny - think this is my favourite HM on the calendar.

Martin - just hoping the race no. I'm allocated doesn't add up to 13
20/02/2013 at 19:18
Me too Kenny , a nice bit of weather like we r having at the minute and it will be a great run.

Ricky, don't worry about the numbers I'm sure we could get you a "charm" to get you through it

Might go out for a short run later, aiming for my 1st 20 miler tomorrow morning so the tv might win that battle !
20/02/2013 at 22:47

Martin - relieved the 13 miles has a 0.1 on the end or I'd never make it to the start line

Good luck with the big 20 tomorrow!


20/02/2013 at 22:54
cheers Ricky
