    my PB at Parkrun remains 26:49 from 2016, I’m now able to consistently get within a minute of it (haven't been able to do that since probably 2016) …. It’s getting beaten this year
    Well done Dev !!!

    Nice one! Five of us went in together and three of them were on second-hand numbers. Enjoyed it!

    Well done!

    was a perfect day for a run, good crowd too

    Day didn’t go well for me - up early, no coffee, EarPods acting up, phone acting up but 2:09 all the same (my 2011 time was 2:05)

    only 6,136 actually started (so lots with €35 to burn)

    going from the Marathon last year and the chat online there seems to be thousands who sign up for these and then just sell the number

    Well done! Did my first 10 mile/16 km last Sunday in prep for the Half Marathon in the Park on the 23rd of September. 1 h 47 so 6.2 mins/km. Bit sore afterwards but enjoyed it.

    So Dev’s 7 week marathon training break (doing my own think) lasted about 4-5 weeks with not being able to do a lot.

    weeks 6 & 7 of the break I’m repeating the weeks 9 & 10 of the plan

    so 10 miles today (still having to stop and walk every now and then), not a nice day in my neck of the woods

    And I believe what is a PB (not sure how but I’ll take it)

    I've been back getting some KM's in running, finding it hard to cut the time down though. My last 5KM was in 30:36, so about 6min a km pace. Aiming to get three runs in a week, and 3 sessions on an Assault Bike (because I really hate myself :D), and some strength sessions too. Found Garmin Connect and Strava have been great tools to track everything though. Good luck with the training DeV

    cheers

    Yeah 2011

    Everything was going amazing until around 5 miles… 1 sip of an Spar own brand isotonic drink (they were being given out) and wanted to get sick with every step the rest of the way

    we won’t talk about the time but I completed it

    nothing new on race day

    I’m already, 10 weeks into this 22 week (advanced)training programme:


    There’s a good bit of run walk run but I’ll get there

    I’m doing the plan over 29 weeks, I’ll have 7 weeks of doing my own thing as I started early.
    might be a couple of weeks where I need to stretch it out due to other commitments etc

    I'm also doing the 10 mile and half marathon

    aiming for 4 hours (plan a)
    Best of luck. Have you run one before?
