20 mile run.............So that's what it's like................How quickly one forgets
hadwee had a wee chuckle there. Took a notion to check out forum first time min months and s discover I'm able to solve the dog marshal mystery. Yes it was us. Love that race and found it tough watching and not racing.
hope everyone is well and I'll read back over the last few months to catch up. Took a bit of a tumble at luring and sprained ankle. Took 2 weeks off running and have done 2 x 5k jogs this week. Feels ok and hope to try a 5 mile run next week. Training was going well and was hoping to race derry half. Back to drawing board and will probably try C'way half if ankle fees strong enough.
Hmm, u must have got your "back to school haircut" and minus batman/robin , I'm too polite to sat whose which, 1st lap I wasn't sure , 2nd lap I couldn't speak So it made no difference, good luck with the training , CU Soon
Ps: Peter I love dogs , that's probably why you were standing in the middle of nowhere with a terrier coz it was happy to be there
I really enjoyed the Dambusters 10 mile race in Silent Valley today. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and the Mournes were absolutely beautiful. Slick organisation, friendly welcome and a bbq afterwards. It was a hard course with a long tough hill at about 8 miles, but the view at the top made up for it. Born 2 Run really do provide 'great races in great places'. And nice to meet you Littlest Hobo.
I was just reading this article. Scarey! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2407803/Sam-Harper-Brighouse-marathon-runner-killed-cocktail-sports-supplements-ibuprofen.html
Likewise Paul. Always good to put a face to a name...... especially to prove to people that I am actually human and not canine, lol. You certainly put a good race in yesterday, and not an easy one.
Good luck to everyone at the laganside 10k today.
Just a quick appeal everyone. Is there anyone out there that hasn't done a parkrun yet and is free on Saturday morning? At the Waterworks we have been following the parkrun UK volunteer themes since the 27th July in keeping with the 'Join-In' initiative, and this Saturday is the turn of people who have never run or volunteered at a parkrun. Would anyone be willing to come along and help? Full training will be given on Saturday morning.
PIPS 10k Run and 5k Walk .... you can register online and also at the PIPS office this week from 9.30am -5pm as well as on the day at SCULPT from 9am. Car park for the run at M J M Marine at the Carnbane Business Park.https://www.activeglobal.com/running/ne ... -walk-2013
Well done everyone at the Dambusters a race I maybe give a go next year if I stay injury free.
I ran two races over the weekend. ECOS was the second parkrun in my mini tour. This was the first parkrun I did about this time last year. They have changed the course slightly and got their parkrun signs all in place since last summer. I was going well until about 4.5K when the wheels came off and I struggled that last half K. Looking back at my splits I had went faster than usual the first two miles and paid for it at the end.
Sunday it was off to Belfast for the Laganside 10K. I wasn't in the best of form but was happy to get round in just over the hour. More long runs needed to work on the stamina.
Well done Kenny, two in a row. Good man
Hi all , just joined but been running 2 years now and will be Running the Waterside half Marathon In Derry this sunday , anyone else going ?
Hi Leslie, I'm running this Sunday, have you ran it before? I ran it last year , enjoyed it so going back for more, p.s Welcome !
Kenny, Great action shot of you at Laganside on N.I Running(col3) , shows you definitely weren't slacking
Yes, great shot Kenny. Also good one of Paul O'H in the first picture on the same stream. Where's your club vest Paul?
Martin the one a ECOS was worse.
I did Waterside last year I haven't got the miles in the legs to do it this year. Flattish course I hope you don't get the weather we had last year. Good luck everyone enjoy the race.
kenny, I completely forgot that it lashed for the whole race last year , thanks for the reminder
Thanks for the welcome Yes I've ran it the last 2 years now being on my doorstep, it was my first half in many years and it certainly was misable last year with the weather and the forecast for sunday seems to be geting worse by the day .
Did my last tempo yesterday and the derry parkrun on saturday then 12 on sunday and my legs are sore today so did an easy 5 miles to get me moving again.
We will be alright Leslie, sure we will get round it so fast we'll hardly get wet
