Some more info on Lisburn although please note that these things not always set in stone.
Same start area and heading out to Moira as usual bt onto Lurganure Road then working back to Maze then out to Culcavy and back to Maze and home via Blaris Road like the 10k route. Flat fast and traffic free. PSNI had a look at it recently - waiting for them to say yes but should fine.
PaulD - was up there myself on Friday. 7.13am start at Donard Car Park - headtorch Ran river path to the saddle then up and down Donard. Onto Brandy pad around to Hares Gap then off Trassey Track into Tollymore and back via Mourneway. Ended up out for longer than planned but it's a fave route of mine (normally minus the Donard ascent) - Still some nice snow cover but not so much to hinder the running. Just a few mins under 4 hrs - so a great time on feet prep run for Grizzly. Legs tender for good few days after though - quads sore from the descending.
Brrr - nippy out there. Good running everyone especially in those conditions. Was leading the B'mena Runners 10min group last night. Was happy to get everyone safely round 6 miles at 10.10 avg. My avg heart rate higher than usual - guessisuede to worry someone would slip on the ice.
Enjoying my rest day today Great session Gregory - what kind of session is that for you£?
Great running oeveryone - and well done 12escape on getting into the double digits. Pleased with this weeks training - got in a great time on feet run over Trostan, round Sllievanee through Glenariff. - 2hrs 45mins and at times some of that in fresh waist deep snow! Looking forward to rest day tomorrow before a 16 on tarmac Sunday morning. Tempted to head to Mournes instead but not sure if I can get a 'pass' for that particular jaunt.
Glenn from Championchip talked me through the new Lisburn route. Apologies as I'm not overly familiar with the town but needless to say - flatter and faster and closer to town would be the general idea. Hope weather not too bad in morning as taking both of the boys down to play mini rugby in Lisburn - brrrrr.
Good luck Kenny and everyone running either Stormont or Sperrins great series.
PS Did I mention I tried on a pair of Hokas last week - amazing. Picking them up from Pure Running next week. Hope they'll help ease the aches from the longer LSR miles on the horizon in the build up to VLM.
