Good luck to all doing Omagh tomorrow. The weather isn't going to be as nice as last week.

Back at the physio today. He gave my back a good working over. I have to try it and see how it goes. 10 miles on Sunday then I'll make a decision about Ballyliffin.

Well done to everyone who ran Larne conditions were perfect for running.

I managed to get round and felt good up until about half way a result of going out faster than I had planned. Struggled on the way home and was glad I'd took my water bottle when I reached the water station which had run dry. But I made it home just outside the 2:30 I had hoped to run. Getting a big hug from Mags at the end made up for not getting a medal. They took our address and said they'd will post it out. My back was OK it was the legs that wouldn't work. I went out on the bike yesterday just to get the legs working.

I met a few of you on Saturday and heard a few shouts on the way round. Now to find my legs for Ballyliffin Coastal Challenge on Easter Saturday.

Trip to the physio last night. He massaged my lower back with his feet loosening out the joints. It's a bit tender today and I have some stretches to do. But he didn't tell me not to run so will have to wait and see what it's like in the morning. I'll probably start and see how it goes. So will see you sometime tomorrow.

Well done everyone some good running and great weather for it at the moment.

Paul Newry is on the 24 May.

My back is playing up again so off to see the physio tonight. I'll still be at Larne but maybe as a spectator. Weather forecast looking good too so will be disappointed if I have to miss it.

I had a great 10 miler on Friday lovely morning a bit cold and icy to start with but the sun was shining and hardly a breeze. It was the fastest I have run in a while so I hope I'll be able to keep it up for Larne.

A few hours rest then the 3 hour sponsored spin. After two days at a coaching course over the weekend I'm shattered today. I think I need a few early nights to recover for Larne on Saturday.

Well done everyone some good running over the weekend. It good to see a stretch in the evenings and a bit better weather.

One2E my best marathon was off long runs at a slower pace than I had trained at for previous marathons. The long runs are important more about time on feet that speed. You can try and pick the speed up a bit on shorter runs. One thing to bear in mind when running your first marathon is no matter what time you run it will be a PB. Good luck with your training and maybe bump into you at Larne.

My back still isn't 100%. I'll try a short run tonight then 10 miles in the morning. 3 hour sponsored spin class in the after noon for comic relief. Then coaching course Sat & Sun. A busy few days ahead. 

Good luck to anyone racing this week end.

I managed a 3.7 mile run last Thursday evening and then went out and did my 10 miles on Friday and felt strong the last four miles. It was a lovely morning although a bit breezy. I then ran the Portrush parkrun on Saturday morning as their was no beach due to the high tide it was option B a run up to the top of Ramore Head. The back felt great. Yesterday the back started playing up again. I'm hoping the stretching and rolling will allow me to run tonight.

Well done HMM. I tried running with out gels but found I was struggling after about 8 miles I went back on the gels and that seemed to sort it out.

I tweaked my back on Monday getting out of the car. It's a bit better today so I'm going to try a short run tonight. I had planned 13 miles tomorrow as I am at a wedding and staying over on Saturday. I'll see how I feel after tonight and might have to change this.

Well done Paul on 100 parkruns. Well done Gregory and Paul.

I managed another 15 miles yesterday even though the weather was better than last week I struggled a bit and found the last couple of miles hard. I entered Larne last night so there is no turning back.

Company always helps Martin.

Hill session Tuesday evening and 4.3 miles last night. I still feel tired from last Sundays 15. I'm planning another 15 this Sunday and keeping my fingers crossed for better weather.

Good luck to anyone racing or doing big miles this weekend.
