Jus T - I hope the PF clears up quickly for you. Must be a nightmare having to deal with that.
Dannirr - Looks like a stunning place to run.
I can safely say that I never get up at KOC, particularly to go running. I'm thinking of doing the Killearn 10km next month, now that I've blown away the cobwebs at Dunlop. It's sort of a trail route, but looks more forest path than proper trail.
I tend to be less focused with my running if I have no training plan or no event I'm training for, but I still get out and run.
I'm actually enjoying the lack of training plan to follow just now. The last few years have been complete one plan, a couple of weeks break and then jump straight into the next training plan. I'm enjoying deciding what I'd like to do run/bike etc for once, rather than thinking I need to run x tonight.
KS - Well done on completing the half. I know how badly things can go if you are unwell and attempt to run. I made that mistake at a half a few years ago and ended up walking the final few miles feeling like hell for my slowest ever half.
