I never seen you Martin, you should have shouted up. Jason, were you that bloke hanging in to my coat tails who just pipped me at the post? Only joking, I never seen a thing through my misery. 38 seconds of my pb, so it was worth it. Not quite as good of an improvement as yours Jason. Not a course I love, but it's a bit like seeley, it's a necessary evil in the racing year.
Are you still up for the Causeway 50 Martin? I'm sooooo looking forward to it.
A race of a different kind today. The inaugeral Waggy Races in Castleward. It was an 5km race for runners with dogs, like Canix or Cani cross. Which is right up my street. Fantastic event, great weather, great organisation and a really positive vibe about the whole day. I would really recommend it to anyone if they run more of them.
The great Welsh marathon. That has a ring to it. Good luck with the training. Honestly Mark, you'll do grand at the Causeway 50. I don't think you can enter on the day. But if you're marathon fit you'll easily manage it. I panicked about it last year, but there's nothing to worry about. The worst happens is that you walk chunks of it. The scenery is so amazing, you'll want to walk parts just to take it all in.
You are funny guys lol. You've brightened up my morning.
I've been doing all sorts of random running since Dublin. I've enjoyed doing whichever races I feel like and not worry about long miles or marathon training. No spring road marathon this year. I'll do the Causeway 50km, but I'm not going to kill myself training for it, just take it as it comes. I'm booked to do Munich marathon in October. Quite enjoyed trying xc this winter for the first time. Not very good at it, but they have a great atmosphere at them. I'd recommend it to anyone. Don't assume that xc is only for fast runners. Also, for those that line wearing shorts, no matter what the weather, it's ideal
