Shades - Nice write up on Cork, I really must do some Irish runs. I've only ever been to Dublin for a weekend.
Ian - 14 laps ! ,think I've managed 5 laps of Lower & Upper (just under 3 miles I think) but I get bored easily so tend to make it random.
Great running Steve, 3min pb at the sharper end is massive. Have you run Berlin before ?
Big_G - That looks like my kind of pacing well done. Enjoy the group run tonight.
I like the sound of Horrible hill Cal, sounds a good one to run up & down, esp when muddy.
20 mile race for me yesterday. Small field of 169 so mainly running on my own but had a chat with a few people. All on roads and quite hilly, I enjoyed the course.
I've still got this sore throat/cold thing hanging around, very nearly gone but not quite. I had a go at parkrun yesterday and did 21:02 , getting slower!. Rough plan for the 20 was make it up as I go along, sub 3 would be lovely.
Found myself running at 8:30's early on and felt really hot, breathing and legs were fine so kept on, but tried to just ease back a bit. 10 miles in 1:28 and half marathon in 1:56. Course was quite hilly from 8-14 & I was enjoying myself. At 16 I started to feel it and the pace dropped to 9:30's, I had a little walk at 18.5 & another at 19, & then ran to the finish. 3:02:12 , so the last couple of miles cost me the sub 3 but all in all quite pleased.
Right calf feels a little tight this morning, & legs are achy in a good way. 3 weeks to Loch Ness, I need to get the pacing right and try and get this sub 4 done.
