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.

15 tough miles yesterday in the wind and rain. At one point I considered binning and heading for home but decided to tough it out and got it done. Soaked to the skin, hands numb and it hurt just showering. Good thing is it will feel easier after this.

I managed a 14 miler yesterday with a few tough hills through in to keep it interesting. Weather not to bad although it was a bit windy. Mile 8 up a slight gradient into a head wind was tough.

Some good mileage covered at the weekend and congratulations on breaking the 30 min barrier O2e.

Well done everyone some good mileage covered at the weekend.

I got my first 13 miler for two years yesterday. Just took it steady and tried to do it at an even pace. I was able to push on over the last couple of miles helped by these being mainly down hill. Larne looking good now. It was great to get an ice free morning. I was a bit stiff and sore after it but got at the stretches and the foam roller to sort it out.

Well done on Sat Greg it was a good days racing.

Avoided the icy conditions on Tuesday evening and got a hill session done.

The warm up races for the Walled City Marathon at Sunday 8 March 10K and Sunday 19 April for the 10 miler.

I am at Roe Valley on Saturday for the Trail Run. No racing just organising the will try and get over the 11 miles on Sunday.

Good running everyone in difficult weather conditions.

One2E I agree with Leslie, I wear new shoes about the house a while before running in them.

Stormont XC done on Sat the last one of the season for me. Thanks to Paul and Mags for the encouragement on the way round. 11 miles on Sunday, I was going reasonably well until 9.5 miles and the legs went but I struggled the last mile and half. I think I'm going to have to start using gels as I start to struggle once I get near double figures.

One2escape a bit of walking and stretching will help loosen the legs.

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.
