Welcome linda the more the merrier
Welcome aboard Linda - did I read your post elsewhere on this site about your VLM run on Sunday? If that was you - very well done & congrats! How's everyone feeling on their taper? I'm itching to get going and am suffering withdrawal symptoms from running as the taper reduces mileage! My plan only has me doing another 4 runs between now and race day (5th May) totalling 13 miles overall! (Did my last long run of the taper last night instead of this Sunday)..... keep thinking this is a much too easy final week and that I need to be doing more!
Agree Ricky, all feels a bit alien, in saying that I had a very busy week so the short miles suited me, one final 10 this Sunday then it's micro tapering ! When r u heading to Limerick ?
Sean, I'm cored out in that case !! , all small stumps and out of control bushes so just a bit of hard graft, 5 children off school 2moro guess what they r doing ?
Its going well ricky, down in dublin for the weekend so i started off on pints and tapered down to morgan's spice lol. 8 mile dreadmill run in the morning(pending), sweat the badness out of me!
They earning thier pocket money this week martin lol!
Dreadmill session complete, soul crushing 7 miles, 55 min.
Martin - heading for Limerick next Saturday morning ..... pick up pack at the Expo in the afternoon and then off to the bar.... oooops forget that last bit , that'll have to wait until sunday evening!
Sean the treadmill is hard work there's no doubt - still good to get it done & will have sweat all that badness out of you as you say. I'm out at a bit of a do in Belfast tonight which promises to be a late/messy one so will have to pace myself also!Nice 7am 4ml run @ MP in the sunshine this morning before work ...
Good man Ricky , enjoy tonight !
Sean , a job well done , staying on a treadmill that long without losing the will to live
Got my bearings today so few miles round phonix park planned in the morning,I must have passed 200 runners in it today,dublin mara training starting early.kicking myself i didn do abit recon yesterday its only 1 1/2mile from the hotel
ricky, top tip for tonight,its not a good idea to hydrate with sambuca pre run
Went to physio about my injury, did a deep tissue massage on monday. Managed two speed sessions and a half marathon run at marathon pace this morning. I know was probably mad 9 days out but had barely ran last week and never got in a final 20 due to the knee issue.
Sean Phoenix Park is a lovely run, enjoy !
Indo , what can I say ? Go for it dude, only a week now,so we all need to chill and its bloody difficult but not worth an injury
5 easy miles this morning round phoenix, they had to be as id a skin full last nite, really enjoyed it anyway.
Interview the David Maxwell for Good Morning Ulster tomorrow morning done followed by 13 miles in the wind and rain. Good Mornining Ulster are doing a series of running features this week in the run up to the Belfast Marathon. Tomorrow will feature Springwell Running Club.
Tapering is one of the hardest things to do but stick at it you want to arrive on the start line feeling fresh a raring to go. You'll find yourself worrying about every little niggle.
Good man KB, looking forward to hearing that in the morning.
Martin, I got an email from Athletics NI on Jan 10th confirming my WCM entry: For further information please contact Noel McMonagle on 02871 359 888 or visit www.thewalledcitymarathon.com
Thanks Paul,think I deleted mine by accident,I will give Noel a ring tomorrow.
Good man Kenny !
Welcome Linda !
Sean a real "recovery" run
Last easy 10 done this morning , can't believe I've only 11 miles to do THIS WEEK !!!! ,Taper,Taper,Taper
Just been told the Good Morning Ulster bit will not be going out until the morning of Belfast probably about 7.50.
A hilly 12 miles this morning - first time going that distance kept it to 8 1/2 minute miles or thereabouts. Probably do another 2 longish runs before the Newry half and see how i get on there. As i said first time at that distance and i feel absolutely shattered lying on the sofa in front of the TV! I think the foam roller will be well used this evening!!
Jim Moore 3.17 at Manchester marathon. well done mate.
Good man Bod and a cracking pace ,put the feet up
Theres only one Jim Moore ! Fantastic time
Great run Jim - gotta be pleased with that. Congrats!Good stuff BOD - keep at it... they do get easier & you will feel less shattered as you build up the miles over the coming weeks.Martin where has the last 17 weeks gone?! Looking at the 18 week plan back on 1st Jan it seemed like an awful lot of miles & a big ask. I have to say I have enjoyed the training despite the dark & cold and also enjoyed the banter keeping up with you all here. I wonder what the weather will bring for next weekend - couldn't be any worse for the Belfast than last year... could it?
I know Ricky where has the time gone , one week to go its hard to believe , the Craics been good and talking to everyone here has kept me forging ahead , weather wise I'm Hoping for at least dry ?, finishing the garden from hell this evening I had to take shelter in the garage from the hailstones !! Not a great omen you may get out there and kiss magpies or whatever else is needed
