Parkrun Enniskillen gets 'Pay to Stay' Ultimatum fromThe National Trust

Posted: Today at 10:17

My apologies that I don't know the area.
If, as VDOT says, using it as a right of way carries no charge, how can they enforce a charge on day visitors to the grounds? Surely they just say they are using it as a right of way?
Fees for some, but not others isn't very joined up.

Thanks for the garmin comments, don't really want to spend more than 100 or so (even that seems a lot for a watch).Big numbers as I'm short sighted , the HRM is useful, not bothered about my vertical oscillation.

what - club night, some form of torture no doubt
why - Tuesday
last rest - I think it's 4 weeks
last hard - will be today

On the contrary, I have read all the issues, and as the recent Thorneythwaite purchase suggests, NT actions are somewhat questionable.
Yet the point remains is that day visitors to the site pay a grounds admission, whereas runners do not.
Arguably there should be a consistent policy.

standard admission to the grounds for a walker is £3, but runners should expect it for free. Is that correct?

Hmm, a lovely start here, so may get more garden time..
Picked up youngest daughter from Reading Festival last night, collect eldest in about half an hour, so the tranquillity that has reigned all weekend will end shortly.
what - something easy
why - 14 with hills yesterday. Not blistering heat but so muggy - don't think I've ever sweated so much.
last rest - Think it's almost 4 weeks now
last hard - yesterday

Any thoughts on the garmin 610? I might be moving into the 21st century...??

Ale - that's possibly the reason I don't use HR training, mine was always iffy (or I had a naff HRM), and given my "maximum" should be about 170-180, I regularly was in the 190s even on steady runs.
Maybe I'll ask Santa for a new HRM or - gasp - a garmin. I'll be on strava next....;-)

what - easy run at lunchtime/C25K easy tonight
why - legs wooden after last nights pyramids. Found it tough going (a) as it was so very humid and (b) gave blood Monday night which always leaves me a bit weaker.
last rest - 22 days
last hard - yesterday
lyric - possibly

Are you and "in" or an "out"?

Fundamentally nothing has changed hence the most recent data suggesting that the fall out hasn't happened/isn't as bad as doom mongers fear.
Sure there hasn't been an economic fallout but it's still early days.
