managed a 10 miler tonight myself, good night for it, at a 9.08 pace though which is steady enough for me! entered titanic myself, hope it wont be too close to belfast, heres hoping for no injuries that day! usually a good size field at it too, should be a good day
Gregory work gets in the way this Saturday
Have to say I am tempted by Titanic but overdoing it & picking up an injury is a risk.... mmmm jury still out. Good wee sharpener though as you say Martin & is a nailed on PB seeing as it would be my first 10k. Good confidence booster!Martin - yes I have a 14miler scheduled in for the day of TQ10k so would prob just switch it with a tempo run and do it a few days before or after the 10k. So last Long run for you coming up this week then Martin before taper?
What rubbish weather! Looking at the weather forecast for the weekend to pick the best day for a long run and the choices are 9c and heavy rain on Saturday but 'only' 16mph winds or 29mph winds on Sunday. Was last Saturday the only summer we're getting then?
Is anybody doing the Mourne Way Half? I was vaguely hoping to do the full but realistically I'm going to be still too knackered after Belfast which is a shame. I'm thinking that next year I'm going to give Belfast a miss and focus on the MWM training.
Catherine....was really looking forward to the Mourne half and the Causeway Half...isnt the Larne half on the date now?....have heard nothing but good about the Mourne and causeway halfs!
Mark, I'm definitely doing the Mourne rather than Larne as I much prefer off-road and I did Mourne last year and it was brilliant (though hard - I abandoned all thoughts of time when I was picking my way over a rabbit warren in thick mud). I'm going to try to get my Larne entry fee back if possible.
Yes cold, wet and windy last night. I did just over 5 miles and it was tough going into the head wind with the rain beating down.
Catherine I'm out Sunday and it looks like it may be dry but windy.
Martin one of the best ways to improve your running fitness and strength which will in turn improve your times is to embrace hills!!
I know TG , Im just weak willed , I dont know about embracing those hills but I may consider offering them a firm handshake
Hi Catherine B, I'm from Warrenpoint and do a lot of hill running. Getting ready for Belfast in May. How bad is the hill section for Belfast from 9 - 14 miles? any advise welcome thanks Kevin
