one2escape - lots of great advice out there. I find the we runners tend to get advice then do what we want anyhow
VLM training week 2 completed with a slow 15 (miles) this morning. Ice and snow - my fave running conditions strangely enough. Been alternating my lsrs each week, 1 week on the roads and the next week time on feet equivalent off road. Hope it helps my 4th Grizzly coming up on 1st March.
Resting today after the Cracker and a recovery run yesterday around the ROTG course (doh!). Great event on Saturday - loved the new trail sections. Sorry I missed you Paul/DS and the usual suspects. I find now that I get changed asap after race instead of hanging around in damp clothes. Getting sensible in my old age.
Martin - I did the 1st Ballymoney Duathlon in autumn 2013. Great event and really 1st timer friendly. You'll love it. Hope to get to another couple next year.
Kenny/Nattybow - interesting about Larne half - guess they could take us further out coast road and turn. Would avoid the climbing - although is that not part of the fun
Before the new year is upon us a couple of questions.
Well done Kenny and everyone else up at Gransha today. Enjoyed watching it and regretted not leaving more time to get from Redcastle - might have even made registration
Been a long time posting...
Up at the mum-in-laws tonight so no Glenariff tomorrow am but hope to get a nice long run done around Ness Woods/Loughermore Forest etc.
parkrun is a great event and has certainly been the main force behind many NI clubs large increase in numbers. Today at the XC the surprising thing was just how many runners were really enjoying the muck and thrill of racing no matter where they finished in the results.
