Thanks guys for the tips, I have ran this week very well last night 10 miles @ 7.30 ave pace with some good hills and this morning a comfortable recovery run 7 miles @ 8.20 ave pace and felt good. I am doing my Tempo run on Saturday and a 20 miler LSR on Sunday aiming at 8.30 ave pace again. I am dropping off an extra bottle just to see if it was hydration but I am confident now it was a blip or the weather. Look forward to catching up at Larne with you all.
Thanks guys again
speed session at the track last nite 4mile 400 800 1200 1600 1200 800 400 with warm up and cool down 11 mile total . about to head out now for 500m hill repeats dreading the thought of it !!!!!!
Sessions 2 days in a row a bit much Gregory!!
Racing jimmys and then larne so race season firmly upon us now. Last proper session pre Jimmys tonight. Haven't done it in a while so be interesting to see how I get on.
John do you still do the heart rate training? You look to be progressing well. (As do a lot of the other guys!).
John - looking very good for you going sub 1.40 @ Larne Bet those 500m hill reps hurt Gregory.... I did a 6 miler tonight witha 10x250 hill session in the middle which was hard enough!Martin the Palma Majorca trip sounds brill - cold pints waiting at the end has PB written all over it
ricky- 10*500 reps with gradual incline 6,40 pace add in warm up and cool down 12.5 mile . well done on your session they are all tough
Martin have you been to a physio about the knee?
Gregory a couple of tough sessions.
Just over 5 miles last night with my beginners group. You should have saw their faces when I told them the route which included a steep hill, but they all did it and will feel better for doing it.
Good luck to all racing this week end.
Thanks Kenny. Yeh been to physio no lasting damage , ice packs and rest and some strengthening exercises for the surrounding muscles ,no running until sunday, then i will take it from there
HMM, If there was ever a photo to be used to advertise Ballymena runners that has to be it , superb,well done again!
HMM some good pics.
HMM - fair play to you, literally knee deep & you even appeared to be smiling/enjoying yourself in some of the shots! .... that caper looks way beyond my capabilities! Well done.11mls tonight for me @ 8.36 pace..... 22 scheduled for Sun morning and will bring me to 60 for the week which is a first for me
I haven't been on for a while & I think the last thing I was to find out was about pacers for next Saturday!! We have 3 pace groups 1.30, 1.45 & 2.00 - you will be able to identify them by the balloons attached to the pacers! We are now up to over 1000 runners & are on course for a record breaking entry, but that will mostly depend on how many people enter on the day, & if its anything like today that could be very few!!
My own training has been going quite well (nearly scared to say that in case I scud myself!) & its now only 7 weeks until I hit the roads in the Cincinnati marathon. Tomorrow is a 21 mile run which is the farthest I've ever went in a training run, normally don't go beyond 20 so not sure how that will go!!
Hope to see a lot of you next week down in sunny?? Larne for the best half marathon in Northern Ireland!!!
