Hey all, sounds like lots of good cold weather running going on out there.
I chickened out of Seeley. You have to be feeling pretty positive about your running to do it. I always think of it as a neccessary evil, it's not enjoyable, but it just has to be done. I'm starting to put a few more miles into my weeks, and the various body parts seem to be holding together rightly.
This weekend will be XC in Ballyclare, then Waggy Races Dog/Human race in Murlough on Sunday. They do say that it is important to keep mixing you running up.
Martin, DS that Tollymore marathon looks fab. It'll not be easy though, so good luck lol.
Paul, you need to take it easy mate! But I'm sure I'm not the only person to tell you that. You know how tough the training is at the best of times.....
I've been up to my eyeballs in mud at xc the past couple of weekends. It's a great, cheap way to spend an afternoon. Always a great atmosphere at the finish lines and it's great to be able to spectate the mens races. It's a bit more forgiving on busted body parts too lol.
Hey strangers, it's been a while since I've been on. I've been busy sulking and feeling sorry for myself with injuries, lol. I am out runnig, but not very far, and definitly not very fast. Sounds like everyone on here is having their ups and downs at the minute, although some great running going on.
So jealous of you all doing Dublin. Last year I said never again, lol. But we all know thats not true. That King of Gullion, looked like a cracking event, I will def need to keep it in mind for next year.
Good to see Kenneth twice last weekend, at the Coleraine xc and the Ballymoney duathlon. You are certainly one of the grafters. I had a great time at the duathlon, something different, although that cycling malarkey is bleeding cold compared to running.
My training is pretty low at the minute. I'm trying to build up the courage to start going up the miles again. I've a London 2015 GFA spot that I need to get traininf for, but it's a scarey prospect at the minute.
I'll def make an effort to get on here more often. It's a great way to feel positive about running again
Good to see you too Kenneth. You appear everywhere. I hope your club appreciates the amount of supporting you do. It was a great experience, that I will definitely try again, just not sure when......
Great to see you back Rodney. I feel your pain. No matter how much the rational part of our brain tells us that recovery and speed will come..... We still can't help but compare our abilities to what they were once like. Thank goodness we can run at all, there are plenty that can't. Good luck at the GNR, I am sure you'll nail it. Give it an uggy uggy uggy from me
