No Pain, nothing more arduous than some 10k or halfs later in the summer ,going on holiday late June so just plan on taking it easy , no plans yet for winter marathon might just stick to the halves
Rotten cold since Monday - pushing on with the training anyway. Whether that's the right thing to do or not I have no idea.... actually felt much better after my hill session tonight.Maybe I've sweated it out of me
would anyone have an idea of the hilly areas in Derry marathon.
first time entering a full Marathon and slightly concerned about hills!!
Martin, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but there are only four weeks between the marathons. I was aiming for Belfast myself and then entered for Derry because it is a one-time only occasion. I'm thinking of trying both but might end up giving Belfast a miss this year.
Martin if your not looking to PB in your second marathon you will be fine, take a few days of after the first one and then just tick over for the next couple of weeks 6 or 8 mile runs at most.
At the moment I am training hard for the Manchester marathon at the end of April ( looking for a PB ) then i am pacing the sub 4.30 group at Belfast might do Newry for fun and see how I go and then I am pacing the sub 4.30 group at Derry , so it should be a fun 6 weeks or so
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.
Cheers TG - aye it's in the chest ..... feet up for a while then. Not happy.
