10 miles done this morning. A bit nippy at the start but soon warmed up. I felt strong the whole way maybe I'm starting to make progress.

Well done on the PB one2escape great write up. Remember the race was done on tired legs so just think what could be achieved if you had targeted the race. Nice wee boost before the marathon.

Some good times recorded at the race. It's one I haven't done and having marshalled it the course doesn't really inspire me but may get round to it some day. 

I alway encourage runners to volunteer and put something back into the sport. A good time to do this is when injured so your not missing out.

DS that was right at the end after battling with the head wind for mile and half. Well done at TQ 10K.

10 miles on Sunday very wet at the start but cleared up by the time we finished.

I ran Port rush parkrun this morning. Sand was good and tail wind on the way out coming back was tough 1.5 miles into head wind. Good to catch up with HMM. 

Good running everyone.

Martin the first 3 miles are down hill flattish. After that it's a bit up and down with a few tough climbs about 8 miles you drop down onto the beach for the last couple of miles. If you look at my facebook page their is a video of the route.

After seeing the weather I was glad I did Larne. Well done everyone some excellent times.

I managed 10 mile yesterday and managed to get round dry.

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.
