Still no running for me off to the physio in the morning. I went out on the bike on Sunday. Cycled out to Dervock went round with the 10K group then cycled out to meet the Half Marathon group brought them home and the cycled back to Ballymoney. I think I did approx. 26 miles. We had about 20 out doing the training run.
Martin enjoy your break.
Alwyn well done at Ards.
Mags Bryan is talking about doing Grey abbey on Friday evening.
Check out the Dervock course on youtube
Physio this morning another week of no running so will have to get on the bike.
Looks like a nice undulating course Kenny - intending on running this one- when do entries close?BTW- your link wasn't quiteright - should be this I think?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YOBbmvsKiQ
Ricky online entries are open until 9.00am on the 16 July. We are taking entries on the day.
Good challenging course which takes you down through the Dark Hedges which featured in the Game of Thrones.
Anyone racing this week end.
Maybe a parkrun Kenny but heading on holidays so on the wind down from racing for a month or so... Might try Ormeau in the morning.
Mags is a big advocate for Greyabbey 10k so hopefully she gets a big crowd.
Looks like a busy calendar as ever.
Not long home from Greyabbey - went for a coffee afterwards. We got a great turnout but unfortunately I didn't get to see much as I was tied to the computer doing registrations and results, so apologies if I didn't get speaking to anyone on here.
Kenny, it was worth Bryan's time coming to Greyabbey as he won his category. Good to see Springwell represented at it. North Belfast Harriers took the team prize, as well as 1st and 2nd male.
Right, parkrun next.....
Warm day for the Ballywalter sprint triathlon (750m sea swim, 20k bike, 5k run.) Sea conditions were perfect and I managed to get into a steady rhythm quickly before switching to the bike for a 2 lap route on quiet country roads. The run incorporated a short beach section to the first turnaround then a longer beach run for the final turnaround. I was happy with a 1:20 finish, taking a few minutes off last year's time. Big thanks to Paul Brannigan for the shout outs every time I was near transition! Hope everyone else's racing and training this weekend went well, and you all managed to avoid getting as sunburned as I did on the bike!!
Well done DS great to see you still at the Triathlon's. Fantastic weather and really makes the morning runs far more enjoyable long may it continue
Ricky , Dervocks a great run , I'm doing it myself and love the part down through the dark hedges .
Kenny, what time is pack collection ?
Pack collection is opened on Friday evening from 4.00 - 8.00pm and Saturday from 8.00am.
It going to be a long day as we're on the go from 6.00am on Saturday setting up the course.
I'm back doing a bit of running. I've done 1.5 miles the last three mornings. I'm going to up it a bit this week and hopefully get a run round the NFU 5 mile Friday week. I've been on the bike and clocked up a few miles last week.
How''s everyone enjoying the heat?
Thanks Kenny , see you Fri/Sat ,looking forward to it , glad to hear your back out there
See you at the weekend Martin. Looks like it could be a hot one.
14 weeks to Palma Marathon , proper training starts today , atleast this weather will provide an invaluable training resource
Is the end of the high street specialist running section nearing the end? Big question but today when I was in town for a new pair of running shoes I couldn’t believe the prices compared to what I could get the same trainers online for. One shop had the ascis 19 for £140..the very same pair online can be got for £85 with £4 postage. This is a massive difference in price..when I said to the shop assistant, who was knowledgeable about the products, said that they wouldn’t even be buying them in that cheap.
Do you think the high street sports shop with always have their solid customer base but the more specialist trainers area will be used to have a look and a try on before buying online leading to the decline of the specialist section? Very much like the decline of the high street camera shops where they were packed with folk doing the try before you buy (elsewhere online).
6 miles done tonight, man it's warm out there
Actually looking forward to Dervock Half tomorrow.
Good man Rodney , so am I , its gonna be a hot one , might have to break out the "fat bloke in a running vest" usually reserved for hot countries where nobody knows me , Best of luck for tomorrow
Good luck guys at Dervock!
Work tomorrow so unfortunately can't make this one
Yes Kenny, and everyone running tomorrow, good luck. Sorry I can't make it this year, but hope it goes well and everyone copes with the heat . Look forward to hearing the reports.
