Thanks HMM I got up on Saturday morning in two minds whether to run the XC or not. Bit the bullet and ran, found it tough going but enjoyed it once it was over and was faster than last year.

Went out yesterday and did 8 miles followed by the club breakfast at the Sizzilin Sausage.

Nattybow my aim is to run either Larne or Omagh Half's and take it from there.

Martin what do you mean there's no Santa. Nice wee surprise Martin.

I am still not 100% but managed 5.9 miles on Sunday and was off yesterday so got out in the morning before the rain for another 6 miles. Getting there slowly.

Well done at the parkrun guts.

I got up on Saturday full of the cold and decided to give the XC a miss although I did go up and watch. Went out yesterday to do my 10. When I hit the first hill there was nothing in the legs so I turned and went home. Not a good weekend.

The weather has taken a turn for the worse. Tinkering with running the XC tomorrow. I got new spikes and might try them out. Booked in on the club trip to Enniskillen for the XC so have to get them broke in sometime.

10 miles on Sunday planned.

Agree about 10K's my favourite was always the 10 miles but not many about now.

Good luck to all racing this weekend. If your at Ballyclare I'm the sweeper at the back making sure everyone has finished safely before I cross the line

Well done Gregory. A busy month DS. Pacers for the parkrun what next. A new flat course for Lisburn will be interesting.

Another good 10 miler banked yesterday. Getting the miles now I have to work on the speed. We're getting spoilt at the minute with the weather.

Jason I'm in the same boat as you and usually end up too hot as I don't like getting cold.

I'm finding it hard to get motivated too Jason but once I'm out I'm fine. Agree with the guys something to aim for helps.

I got a tough 10 miler yesterday with lots of hills. It was a bit cold when we start but warmed up on the sun came out.

Well done everyone who ran Tollymore looked like a tough event. Some great pics on facebook Mark.

I got another 10 miler on Sunday morning which was great. On Friday I tweaked my back and had a bad stomach so was pleased to get the 10 done.

Good luck with the London training Paul and TLH. Marathon training tends to find any weakness so be careful.

I've got myself a pair of spikes and plan to try a few XC's. I'm booked in for the overnight stay in Enniskillen and when you go all that way you have to run.

I managed another 10 miler on Sunday. I struggled a bit this week but it's another 10 in the bank. After Christmas it's upping the miles for a Half all being well.

Good luck in Tollymore guys.

Alwyn another one under the belt. 8 miles is a long way when you are struggling.

Martin well done at Gullion had a look at Mark's pics on facebook.

Busy weekend at the cross country. I managed my fastest 10 miler of the year before going to watch the finish of the Duathlon. It's good to finally see a bit of light at the end of the tunnel.

Some good running in Dublin well done guys. I was tracking our guys and everyone seemed to slow between half way and the 30K. What do you think of the changes in the course?

I got another 10 miler on Sunday finished strongly which sets you up well for next week. I need to try and get a bit of speed into the legs now.
