Sorry to hear injury playing up again Kenny. Mine still sore when driving but ok during most runs. Had a good run last night so entered Round the Bridges. Not race fit yet but will get round ok.
That's a heck of a feat from Andy Deal on the Whiterocks beach. Story behind his family tragedy and the inspiration for his run on nirunning website:http://www.nirunning.co.uk/monthly-feature
Also amazing achievement by Dales Mathers completing the Bob Graham Round in just under 23hrs. Earlier this year, I read about the Bob Graham - not for the faint hearted!
We have some truly outstanding local endurance runners to look up to!!
Hope your injury setback is minor, Kenny.
Good to hear from you again, Rodney, it's been a long haul for you getting back.
Hoping to come through a good tough club session tonight and give myself the 'green light' for Ards on Friday.
Thanks Alwyn. It has been a long time since I raced but still need to be patient with the fitness and injury. Good luck with the training session and all the best in Ards Half.
5.5 mile tonight would need to feel lot better for round the bridges on Thursday night
Gregory you've been doing a lot but I'm sure you'll be fine , haven't ran since Wednesday , tempted to get out there , but I'm gonna resist , Puerto Rico on Saturday so some holiday running is the answer for me, next run will be be Dervock on my return ,best of luck !
Kenny, sorry to hear your troubles are back hope you get some ease soon
No running for two weeks. Allowed to cross train so I'll have to get the bike out. Frustrating.
155 pre entries for the bridges so should be a good nights racing.
It's only 2 Kenny
Thats good numbers for the bridges, one for the future
Very wet here at the minute but the forecast is for it to day up for tonight's race.
Hope to see some of you later.
Good Luck Everyone !!! I hope you dont get Belfasts weather tonight its horrible here today
great night at springwells round the bridges 10miler . perfect running conditions i managed pb 67.46 over the moon with that . great hospitality as always kenny hope your bag on the road soon.
Well done Gregory. Great night I'm exhausted today.
Well done to John, HMM, Robin, Rodney thanks for your support.
Thanks Kenny. Delighted with how my race went. Ran with Eric for most of the race and surprised myself at how I ran.
Well done to everyone else who raced and a big well done to Springwell for the usual great organisation and hospitality.
Forgot to mention Mags and Max thanks for coming down to help out.
Well done to all you guys in Limavady. Rodney good to see you back at it.
Kenny it was a great night as usual - and what a brilliant turnout. It's always a pleasure to come down (or is it up) and help out. We were well looked after too by the Springwell Catering Company. Please pass on our thanks to the gang.
Rodney I was delighted to see you finish so strong last night - great stuff. Mind you I was so busy congratulating you that I missed my buddy Eric who came in with you.
Gregory I was at the finish calling out the names to Peter Jack and I tried to call out to you as you crossed the line, but I was drowned out.
Right off to Ards now - maybe see some of you there.
Just finished packing ,thank god, off to Puerto Rico in the morning , looking forward to a wee coastal run on Sunday morning
Have a great holiday & enjoy your beach runs, Martin!
I didn't sleep too well - body sore after Ards HM. Pleased with my time on a tough course. Actually thought I was on for a sub 01:34 coming down the hill mile 12 but that pesky 0.1mile at the end always catches me out! My right hamstring was sore from before halfway - after first long climb - so pleased to have held it together. Paid £5 for a very welcome post-race massage from North Down physio.
Thanks, Mags, for your roadside support - lovely to see a friendly face at the top of that final hill!
Good spread put on afterwards in the leisure centre. Larne & Ards really put Lisburn to shame in the hospitality stakes.
With the rearranged Larne, that's the completion now of 4 HMs in the last 32 days. Ready to ease back a little now as I head off on holiday and then pick up the mileage as Dublin training starts in earnest.
Alwyn, that's a fantastic achievement well done and enjoy your holidays
Some good running this week, well done to all. I haven't done much since Larne so I gave Ards a miss and just did the 5 mile at Loughinisland.
Huge number of PBs at Waterworks today. Nothing to do with the quality of volunteers I'm sure, Mags.
Paul, definitely down to the calibre of the volunteers this week, particularly the Timer
For anyone that likes a good spread after a run I can highly recommend the Greyabbey 10k and 3 mile fun run on Friday (5th) at 7.40. Proceeds go to Alopecia Trust and there is great hospitality afterwards - not to mention superb marshalling and organisation
