    Impressed that you can speak the near-incomprehensible Donegal dialect. Good luck next week.

    Tough one again J. It's good that you finished it out though - I know people always say that, but it's a good habit to be in (provided you're not making an injury worse). Hang in there! Maybe a little break would be good though, or a focus on something completely different for a bit, like a different distance or something.

    Agree with the aspect of finishing it out. Very easy to step off the course but you're building mental strength/toughness by seeing it out until the end. Obviously no point if you are injured but would encourage it otherwise.

    Aww no, sorry to read that your race didn't go well. Like MurphD suggested, try for a different distance or challenge. You don't sound in any way enamoured with the upcoming XC season.

    Good to have another legend logging again😉 It's tough when things aren't going to plan but you know this yourself & have acknowledged it. Best of luck with recapturing the glory days🤗

    Good to read that you haven't lost the desire to keep running and intend to start picking things up again. And where better than these pages to get it down in black and white. I find that writing about it is half the battle.

    Looking forward to seeing a return to form in the near future!!

    Excellent - and good to bump into you at one of those parkuns. Great to see things returning to normal. Pity about JB, a lot of people didn't move fast enough, it seems, but also good to see the race continue to be popular.

    Good to see you back posting J. It's hard at the start of a comeback but it's amazing how fast 6 or so weeks can go and when you look back it can make such a difference! Keep her lit.

    Good to see the update J, hope all is well.

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,878 ✭✭✭ Murph_D

    Hope to see you again at some of those races, J. With any luck there'll be a bit of muck!

  • Registered Users Posts: 9,878 ✭✭✭ Murph_D

    See you on Sunday, J - I'll be churning up that course as best as I can for you. 😉

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,882 ✭✭✭ Kellygirl

    Glad to see you back racing J, regardless of times. Well done for getting back out there.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,670 ✭✭✭ skyblue46

    Like I said on my own log J it would be great if you could join us next Sunday. Hopefully there's a little group, a nice run and some coffee and cake after. Paces won't be strenuous!

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,276 ✭✭✭ Bluesquare

    Well done for getting back out there ! Fair play .

    At the NIA. Will take my pronunciation cue from you.

    Good to have done those races J. You're a BHAA stalwart. Mind that achilles.
