Have a half coming up in the middle of May but haven't been able to run without my calf going for nearly 8 weeks... I think the physio has me on the right track now but it'll only be 6 weeks of training barring injury.

Is it doable? I'm not too arsed about time at this stage just hoping to get around in less than 2 hours.

The main goal is Dublin at the end of October so hopefully i can go full steam ahead for that.

Your taking this new Jack Reacher to heart lol!! A good paced jog will get you round without hampering the calf, providing your physio is confident. Is there a pace that you feel that the calf starts to ache or a distance?

I haven't been going particularly fast it's gone on my short runs which are kind of around 8-8.5minute miles.

I got up to 10miles @ 10min mile pace at the end of Jan and it was fine then. Apparently I've a weakness in my hamstring which is putting too much pressure on the calf and if I can strengthen it over the next few weeks it should be OK.

Anyone do the Belfast Marathon the day?

Did one of the relay legs and thankfully rain held off.

Did it go off without a hiccup today? Always seems to be something wrong happening at it.

Seemed to as far as I could see. No times out yet though but think they are always a bit slow on that.
Turned out a good enough day for it in the end. Was expecting a complete wash out at one point.

did it myself, finished in 3 hours 2 mins, tough run, calf's cramped up in last few miles. Everything went well as far as I seen, rain held off well and pack collection was night and day from last year.

That is some time well done. Must be putting in serious miles. Did a half a few weeks ago and think that is my limit for the time being. Just too many time constraints.

Doing about 40 miles a week, hadn't as many longer runs done in build up to this and it definitely showed in last few miles. Ormeau rd never gets easier.

Ormeau is not easy, that gradual climb is a killer.amazing time all the same
