Good man Kenny - fast finish too... and there was you stressing about HM distance.Well done Martin - 2nd 20mlr in the bag! I ran 14 this morning with Mo McKee - nice running weather alright.Funny enough we were just discussing watches on the run this morning and agreed that the GPS watch is a great bit of kit for running.... Alwyn finds it motivational & I find it great for just running with no particular route in mind but being being able to make it upp as you go along whilst keeping an eye on distance.Dozens to choose from and at our level dont think you will go far wrong with any of them. I have the Garmin 305 Forerunner basically because its well priced, been around for a while so is tried, tested & reliable & has a big screen so easy to read on the run. Downside is that it is a little bulky.Thinking about it I don't know what I'd do without one ..... get the wallet dusted down Martin and get those white fivers out
21.5 mile on saturday morning lovely day for it , training comin on for belfast and derry marathons .
thanks martin hard to get the training right for marathons as all my other times for distance say i should be doing better at the marathon .
very true ricky wheels fell off in dublin 2 yrs ago at 14 mile never suffered anything like it , thankfully banished the demons in belfast and dublin since then . blew up in dervock too think went out too fast . really want to break 3.30 in belfast so am upping the training
yip kinda jumped into it thinking that wouldnt need any training as belfast would be enough for both hope im right
no need to apologise martin all advice much appreciated
Ah you think nobody is there Martin... the bushes have eyes
Well I am considering doing Limerick on Sun 5th May as an alternative to Belfast & combine it with a weekend away in a nice hotel with the family.It's a fairly new marathon - anybody know anything about it/heard any experiences of it? Looks a fairly flat route.
speed session tonight with the mfeltcrew 1200*800*800*400 repeated 3 times all with 400 recovery total session 13.5 mile . tough going after sat long run .
Tough session alright Gregory....fair play to you - makes my treadmill interval session tonight look like a stroll in the park:8 x 0.5ml @ 7.04 pace with 0.2ml recoveries @ 10 m/ml pace. Warm up of 0.25 ml at start with 0.5ml cool down at end. Just over 6 miles in total.
all sessions are tough ricky as long as we get plenty out of them its all good .
Martin cant go wrong with a garmin wouldnt be without one now .
