Martin, there's another one this afternoon at Kirkiston... Multi sport is much more fun than "just" running. How did you find the transitions between running and cycling? I always find my legs seem a bit uncoordinated for the first couple of minutes after the bike section while I adjust from cycling to running pace.
Great day at the Causeway yesterday. HMM flew past me on his way to a cracking half marathon result while I was shuffling my way back along the marathon course. Thanks for the shouts Kenny - kept me going up the final hill! Some great running from forumites at the Bangor 10k too.
All the best to everyone racing at Loch Ness, Berlin and Nottingham today.
That's a great half mara time, Rodney, especially when you're returning from injury in a huge race like GNR with the inevitable congestion at the start. Looking forward to you being able to return to consistent training and chipping away at your previous times.
Paul, you know Mrs B and your youngest daughter are still understandably suspicious when they spot you heading for the Mournes in running kit... For the benefit of newer members of this forum, Paul's the legend who nipped out of the house for a quick run only to arrive home late that night proudly wearing a Mourne Way Ultra finisher's t-shirt! Well done on the 25k yesterday - I checked for your name on the 102k and 50k results first out of habit though.
I enjoyed the Titanic triathlon yesterday - no ill effects yet from 1500m in the Lagan!
Thanks for the heads up re Tollymore, Martin. Looks like my running plans for the end of the year now include a September, October and November marathon! Mrs DS will be impressed when she spots the new entry on the calendar... I ran the 6 mile race in Milisle last night - great event and enjoyed using it as a final training run for the Titanic tri in Sunday. All the best to everyone else racing this weekend.
