Good luck at the weekend Rodney.

I managed 8.5 miles on Sunday and did have the interval session last night. Still not 100% but getting there.

Next week will be busy. Race referee at the Nissan 5 Mile Classic in Coleraine on Wednesday evening then doing the results at Portglenone on Thuraday evening.

I am off the next two Saturdays so hope to try and do a couple of park runs.

Good to speak to you on Sunday Louise at the triathlon.

I ran Cookstown on Friday evening and was happy with my run but have come out of it wit a niggle which is stopping me run. It's one thing after another just when I feel I'm making progress. Loads of stretching to do to try and free it up.

Well done Martin on the 20 miles.

Are you not tempted by a short triathlon Martin?

Now I've got Dervock and the Milk Run out of the way it's time to put my toe on the line and try a bit of racing. I have entered the 5 miler in Cookstown on Friday evening and hoping I do better than my DNF at the Bridges. I'm running better in training so keeping fingers crossed.

I heard a rumour that the course was short Martin.

Good to hear you back Littlest Hobo. Good luck with your debut triathlon.

Well done Paul on your back to back races.

Well done Natty and Martin on completing Dervock. It was a hot day for running but not as hot as last year. Sorry I didn't meet you Natty but Mags pointed you out on the pics up on our facebook page. It was a busy couple of days which really caught up with me yesterday when I had no energy at all. Now I have it all to do again for the Milk Run in Ballymoney on Friday evening.

Martin you can pick up your pack on the day from 8.00am or on the Friday evening 4-8pm from race HQ (New Community Centre). This year we will have showering facilities as the changing rooms have been finished.

You are not picking an easy one to start with. Good luck with training for Wall Duathlon.

Take it steady Seamus. It's better being able to do a little than none at all.

I was sorry to hear that Greg had lost his battle with cancer a true gentleman. He has left behind a strong club in Co Antrim Harriers and it was nice to see the pics last week of them running as a group in his memory at the Waterworks parkrun.

I ran a PB on a beautiful morning at Portrush parkrun on Saturday. This was the only time I have ran it when conditions were near perfect. Still not 100% but going in the right direction.

Well done DS and the support crew I don't know how you keep going for so long.

Well done Martin on your back to back races.

I had my first ever DNF at the Bridges very disappointed as it was the race I was looking forward to. I knew there was something wrong when I had nothing in the legs for the hill about a mile into the race. My stomach started playing up and I got to the toilet at the first water stop. About 5 miles in it started again and when I saw the ambulance at 6.2 miles I called it a night. I'm still not 100% but there will be other races. I'm now looking for a half marathon later in the year.

I am busy the next few weeks with the Dervock Half and the Milk Run 5 Mile so limited to the amount of racing I'll get. I have a couple of Sats off from kids training so will give the Portrush parkrun a go.
