Well done one2escape on your 10 miler. Marathon running is all about building up your endurance. A guy who ran with us said it was all about getting time on feet getting used to running for a certain length of time.

Enniskillen XC done and dusted and smashed last years time. Conditions a lot better this year and the 15mm spikes gave me grip when I needed it. Few pints on Sat night to celebrate. Hoping to do Stormont this Saturday.

Paths not great round Ballymoney last night just had to ease off and be careful.

A couple of thousand runners doing 26 laps of the football pitches would be interesting Martin.

Agree with Andy re the course. I had also heard a rumour that the course was changing this year. They do take entries on the night but the entry fee is nearly doubled.

Lelsie I think I'll have earned a few beer after the race.

one2e I find hill sometimes loosen the legs a bit or it could all be in the head you know you have the hill to run then once you over it the run seems easier.

Welcome Dave. Sorry I won't be in Watford good luck with Lisburn it always a good night.

I'm heading for Enniskillen on Saturday for the cross country. I didn't get enough mud last Sat. I'm looking to better last years time. Club are staying over night in the Killyhelvin on Sat night so no lung run this Sunday.

Well I bit the bullet and ran the vets race at the junior XC championships in Coleraine on Saturday. 7.5K of mud, mud and more mud there was few bit where you could get into any stride. Completed the 5 laps in what was the best of the weather. All set for Enniskillen this weekend and overnight stay at the Killyhelvin.

Set out to do 12 miles yesterday. Main roads where OK footpaths passable if you stayed on the crunchy snow. The legs were still heavy from the cross country so revised it to 10 miles. Got back to the car with 9 miles done and said that'll do me.

One2escape I agree with everything Paul has said. Do a few 10K 's and half's this year. This will give you the base to step up to the marathon next year. I'm hoping to do the Stormont XC too.

Went over and ran the MUSA Cookstown parkrun on Saturday and then did the results for the cross country. I think the parkrun got the best part of the day. I was glad I was sitting in the heat working on the computer when I could hear the wind rain and hail beat against the windows.

Went out yesterday and did 11. It was tough going and I struggled the last three miles. I think I'll have to start carrying a drink and gel just to give me that boost to get me to the finish. First time in over a year that I've got 11 miles.

Hi everyone happy New Year. I haven't been on since before Christmas so had a bit of catching up to do. Well done everyone who raced over Christmas. 2014 wasn't the best year for me running wise so I'm looking forward to a better 2015. I am hoping to get to a few more races. With that in mind I managed my first 10 miler of the year on Sunday as I start to up the miles in preparation for Larne.

Early start for me tomorrow to get to Cookstown for the MUSA parkrun. Then doing the results for the Acorns XC. 11 miles planned on Sunday. Fore cast not looking good so must look out for a route to make the most of the tail wind.
