Yeah the hairs stood up on the back of my neck when you were telling me about that race Carta. Go for it lad - it will be very interesting to see how the last few laps go for you. The fact that it's on roads not trails will mean a different type of race as well

FFS - I thought it was always 34 degrees C over there, no?

Any decision yet Rebel Cork?
FFS. Only 100km going from a freezing start up to 9 C? Would you ever man up and try something difficult?!!

I'm going cycling that distance in the morning and I'm dreading it!

Best of luck with it Carta, ya crazy fecker. No doubt you'll push it to 120 km with your warmup and cooldown!

No fianl decision.Did 12 miler on fri. 7 mins 45 average pace.Felt good afterwards and no complications since.My plan now is to tip away during the week and try a 16 miler next Sat.Hopefully Ill come trhough that and if its positive Ill enetr the full one.

When I think about it sometimes it makes me a bit nervous but in the frame of mind Im in Im fully confident I can do it.

Gd luck with ure 100k madness!!!Fair play to u

Good luck with that Carta. Read it out there at the breakfast table and the comments went something like this:

M. "100k, what kind of madness is that?"
C. "Complete madness"
M. "Dad is really tired (!) after 42, imagine running 100"

Two of the daughters, aged 14 and 10. I'll be heading out for a ball breaking 16 k job later.

Best of luck with that carta ya fuckin lunatic. I look forward to reading the report.

My training has been interrupted by all sorts of distractions (work at home and abroad, stags, weddings and all sorts of other things besides) but I'm still just about on track for the Waterford City Half on June 30th.

I did 8 yesterday for my long one, moving up to doing 10's then for about 5 weeks and then an 11 and 12 before the race. I won't be doing any PB's but the main thing is just to do it. The real target setting will be for races in the second half of the year.

Main schedule for the next couple of months (work and travel permitting) will be speed session on Mondays, yoga on Tuesdays, 4-6 mile road run at a decent pace on Thursdays and a long one on Saturdays (working that up to 17 miles by September in preparation for Cork-Cobh).

The targets for nice times are Cork-Cobh in October and the Waterford AC Half in December.

Completed my scheduled 18 miles this morning down in Harty's Quay. Went clockwise over the bridge and down the line, turned onto the Marina, past the castle and back to Harty's Quay. I did this 3 times into what I could only describe at 7am on a Sunday morning as a Siberian fncking wind tunnel. I hated everyone on this thread for the first 6 miles but I'm over it now.

Good luck Carta!

Wonder how Carta got on. Any word?

Looks like this might be the official website but no results up yet.

Should be an interesting race report.

I see Fionnuala Britton is going to be a busy lady at the Olympics
