HMM & Heather, thanks for the up date on the pacers. As you know my issue is consistency over the longer distances so the pacers take away that worry. I am looking to to do around 1hr 40m so will look for help with the nearest timed pacer.
Good Martin it looks good out there the sun is even shining on the North Coast.
Thanks Kenny , in my view the sun always shines on the North Coast (even when it rains!)
Nice day for it alright Martin.... no damage done to the ankle then if it didnt protest after 13 miles. Happy days.Finally got back out on the tarmac tonight for my usual Wednesday Hill Session followed by a tempo mile @ 7.07 on the way back home just to liven things up. Total run just short of 4.5 miles.Treadmill is tempting when weather is bad - but nothing beats getting out on the road!
HMM I'm not at the Parkrun very often so I don't know. We meet at 8.00am at Mathewsons Chemist car Park, Ballymoney on a Sunday. This is the only timetabled run. Gillian does some off road stuff but I'm not sure what time she goes out.
Weather was 'minging' today. Went out just before lunchtime, light rain, which quickly turned to heavy rain, lots of big puddles, and around some of the paths I was on muddy puddles too. At least it wasn't too windy. That's my LR sorted for the week (13 miles).
Good to get the Long Runs in when you can JP! I have a 17miler scheduled in for Sunday morning and the forecast isn't great!Martin - similar here... just in from a 7 miler - first 5 MP last 2 tempo (7.32 & 7.21 pace) ... 58.38 fror the run with overall average pace 8.23. Funny enough I'm the opposite with speedwork - I enjoy ramping up the pace (particularly in the closing stages of a run) and need to be more disciplined not to do it! I was supposed to run my 7 miles tonight at MP right through but thought what the hell and kicked for home on the last two .
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.
