13 miles hilly yesterday it was very cold and windy but stayed dry apart from the odd flurry of snow. I felt better this week than last probably because I knew I could do it.

Great stuff Kenny , well on target for Larne now

11/03/2013 at 14:13

20 miles in the bag yesterday and maintained 8.30 m/m for 16 mile and tried marathon pace from 16-20 m/m but suffered at mile 20 but hobbled in at 8.15 ave pace. Not sure why was it the wind, hydration or the hills so a little worried for Belfast. Question are you doing LSR next weekend before Larne or are you cutting back? I am thinking of doing another 20 miler, as Larne week is a right off (recovery run only on Sunday) what are your thoughts.

Depends what you want at Larne John. If your looking a PB taper a bit if not and the marathon is you main target do another 20.

Kenny - you're on the right track now for Larne by the sounds of things.

Martin - hope the knee is sorting itself out?

Well I have just signed up for Limerick on sun 5th May as an alternative to Belfast. Nice city centre hotel booked and feet up in the bar on the Sunday night when you boys are carb loading for Monday!

John - I'm in for Larne and have a 22ml LSR planned next Sunday.
11/03/2013 at 15:55

Thanks,  I think LSR then and see what Larne offers I hope it was just one of those runs and next week is better.

John it was very cold and windy yesterday and sometime you loose energy just trying to stay warm. When it's cold you tend to take less water on board so you may have been a bit dehydrated. Lets hope it was just a one off.

Thanks Ricky , knee is getting there , hopefully start back out tomorrow night.

John bizarrely I'm doing a 10k this Sunday just because I want to , still enough time after Larne to squeeze in a couple more twenty milers , that's my plan for what it's worth , that was strange weather yesterday you've plenty of time to iron out any kinks before Belfast

Gregory I am going not too sure about the well bit.

Wee lampost session with the beginngers group last night. It was dry but very cold and windy.

6.36 miles tonight, 7:50 avg. nice out once you get the blood pumping.
12/03/2013 at 22:58

Not much heat out there Sean - nice pacy run there. 

I was lucky enough to get out in the sunshine at 5pm today - managed 10 miles in just over 81mins (8.08 avg pace)... home before sunset

12/03/2013 at 23:09
Ahy Ricky it's cold but calm out,it wasn't long till I was sweating like a turkey on Xmas eve! Your putting in some great miles,what you hoping for in larne?
12/03/2013 at 23:45

Sean - 1.45 in Larne will do me but depending how I feel on the day I might have a go at my PB of 1.41

Would love to run sub 1.40 but don't think I'm quite there yet .... my PB was in Larne 7 years ago so I might be being a bit too hopeful!

What about you?
