Great pace HMM for what sounds like a tough 22 miler - has to be great training benefits with those sorts of runs if you can get through them.Gregory - impressive stuff so soon after that PB of yours at the weekend! Seems like you are in great shape for Belfast ... what sort of time are you aiming at?
6 mile treadmill tempo session for me tonight - felt a bit green after 4 miles and had to back off - not a great run (too soon after a big pub grub feed I think!)
HMM the Portrush Parkrun has been a real boost for some our runners. The ones who run it regularly are reaping the benefit when they hit the roads. I just wish I could do it more often.
Whoever had been organising it all these years (presumably these tri people) sound like (from what I read though could be one sided) they've been overthrown for the council / WPFG and they've set up one in close proximity to it basically in protest...
Sounds like a messy enough affair.
which race is in the half marathon series?? I would reckon that will be the deciding factor with a lot of people. Messy business indeed.
doesnt sound too good at all! never done that half though...has there been any new date set so far for larne half?
I think it's the council one thats in the half marathon series. The council have probably got involved this year as it's part of the WP games whether they stay involved in future years is another matter only time will tell.
I have ran it once and it's a tough enough run. You have to feel sorry for Tri Limits as they got it up and running but as Gregory say there are two sidesd to every story.
Meeting tonight to confirm Larne half date, will give details when I get back
Just over 5 miles done tonight. Lovely bright evening great to get out into the country after being stuck in the town for the winter months.
Hot off the FaceBook press:
"NiRunning (Northern Ireland Running)
Larne Athletic Club have tonight confirmed that the new date for the AES Larne Half Marathon will be Saturday 8th June 2013."
8th june sounds good to me, little rest after belfast and back to it for larne! hopefully it'll be good weather up there as well, gives a good 10 days or so before lisburn 10k/half as well,
It was an almost impossible task getting a date & unfortunately we are clashing with Mourne marathon. Hopefully there won't be too many people who were hoping to do both of these events. All systems go for 8th June!!
