You would be grand. Just need to increase miles gradually and slow down. I am training for Belfast half marathon in September. It is good to have something to aim for. I am trying to do more slow long runs. I joined a running club as I don't like running on my own.
Managed 27.29 yesterday. An improvement of 72 seconds.
Have set myself a target of 25minutes. Will be tough but very motivating. What I find wonderfully inspiring is see and reading some of the times people a decade and more older are achieving.
Had my first 10k race for years this week.... was a handicap so slowest (me) set off first and everyone else managed to overtake me :-(
But it was a proper 10k and I got round in 72 minutes and it was off road, had stiles to climb over and it was hot hot. So onward and upward
Parkrun 33:47 this week
But I have run 17 miles this week so pat on the back and a sherry trifle for meeeee
Well, "training runs" kind of fell off the radar!
Our two nearest local PR`s were cancelled on Saturday so we were desperate for additional volunteers.
Had nearly 600 on the start line!!! Another Braveheart charge!
I was "funnel managing"........ getting folk to move along and stay in order when they just want to get their breath and not throw up is always fun!!
Tip of the hat to a friend of mine who completed it in 22:23 (not a PB by some way!).......... he`s blind and runs with a guide and is also the Blind Ironman record holder. https://www.haseebblindironman.com/index
I ran a half marathon on Saturday morning in Dervock. It ran through the dark hedges, made famous for being on Game of thrones. It was very warm and hilly. I went out to fast and ended up having to walk up the last 3 hills. Time 1:48:38. I always go out to fast. Never learn.
Just for "fun" they have added an extra shingle bit. Its evil.
So, Summer start thats 100 yards on shingle, up the ramp onto the seawall (keep left), off the end onto the shingle for 25 yards round "Hailes Hairpin", another 25 yards of shingle and back on the seawall (keep left!) then (just for fun) they have put a 20 yard "shingle chicane" around the cafe!!
Then repeat for lap two with out the shingle start.............
Machinery was destroyed – along with a shed and a number of bales – in an overnight farm fire in Co. Down over the weekend – which is the latest in a series of shed fires believed to be started deliberately.
In a statement on social media, local members of the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) confirmed the news of the incident, which took place near Banbridge...
