Well done to everyone who ran Larne conditions were perfect for running.
I managed to get round and felt good up until about half way a result of going out faster than I had planned. Struggled on the way home and was glad I'd took my water bottle when I reached the water station which had run dry. But I made it home just outside the 2:30 I had hoped to run. Getting a big hug from Mags at the end made up for not getting a medal. They took our address and said they'd will post it out. My back was OK it was the legs that wouldn't work. I went out on the bike yesterday just to get the legs working.
I met a few of you on Saturday and heard a few shouts on the way round. Now to find my legs for Ballyliffin Coastal Challenge on Easter Saturday.
Trip to the physio last night. He massaged my lower back with his feet loosening out the joints. It's a bit tender today and I have some stretches to do. But he didn't tell me not to run so will have to wait and see what it's like in the morning. I'll probably start and see how it goes. So will see you sometime tomorrow.
I had a great 10 miler on Friday lovely morning a bit cold and icy to start with but the sun was shining and hardly a breeze. It was the fastest I have run in a while so I hope I'll be able to keep it up for Larne.
A few hours rest then the 3 hour sponsored spin. After two days at a coaching course over the weekend I'm shattered today. I think I need a few early nights to recover for Larne on Saturday.
Well done everyone some good running over the weekend. It good to see a stretch in the evenings and a bit better weather.
