so anyone else doing the virtual marathon this weekend? The new restrictions have caused a pit of a pain in the hole for for anyone that has had their route planned for some time

My training more a less stopped when it was announced that it was cancelled. 
Friend of mine did it today. Managed to do it by staying mostly in Tallaght. 
The support of the crowd and other runners really got me through the marathon last year, so fair play to those doing it on their own.

did it today with a mate, my first time doing one, glad it’s over although I felt comfortable doing it, just found it a bit boring. Mate has done a few and said you badly miss the crowds and the sense of achievement

Fiar play shock. I've never done a virtual one, 20 miles would have been the furthest I've done solo. THe buzz of a marathon is definetly a huge lift. The crowds in the last 10 miles is great, not to mention the constant strem of other runners you try to pass.

Wasn’t solo had 1 mate which helped, even if the chat was less and less as we got further into it.
I think he found it a lot tougher than I did without the crowds as I don’t know any different. I’d also say he’s in a lot better shape than I am today!

I was meant to have done Cork at the June Bank Holiday and Dublin last weekend but pulled back the training completely during the first lockdown and never really got back into it. Signed up to the virtual marathon when it was announced but like most things during the year I lost interest in that too as didn't find it any real incentive to train. Getting back now and aim to run the same two next year providing they go ahead.

Tempted to aim for one myself next year too. Perfect winter to do it, sod all else to do, gyms closed, less boozing that usual. It's the uncertainty of not knowing if they'll be cancelled at short notice that would put me off.

You'd hope Dublin in 12 months will be fine but Cork on the June Bank Holiday mightn't but I'll still sign up to give myself something to train for.

Had signed up for the Limerick marathon which was due to happen on the May bank holiday but got an email saying it will be a virtual event now.
The options seem to be do the virtual event or defer till next year, no refund it seems.
With a kid along the way this summer I can't see myself having any time for training next year.

The training had been going well too. Up to 17km while I've been 'working from home' and hoping to be back up to half marathon distance next week or so.

The Dublin marathon did similar last year. If you're doing it virtually do it in Phoenix Park. There'll be a good few doing laps of that on the day

Anyone else have a fitbit? I use just the watch when going out for a run. Cost 150 quid and don't seem too reliable. Mine seems to be off by .2km and then not sure on the timings etc.

I use a Garmin watch and it would be about the same .2km off per 5km. When ever I check the GPS map after through the app it has me cutting every corner and running through peoples gardens.

Doing a fair bit of walking of late trying to get the steps in and just randomly broke into a run this evening. Did two half laps of the local park with walking the other half. 

First bit of running since football has been banned. Feels good especially with the tunes in the ear Thumbs Up

The Milbrook field is 2k, I'd do that about 4 days a week. I'm hurdling it more than running it with the amount of dog sh*te and domestic waste.

I walk through that and head around and do a few laps of the big
field at the side of Fox Hill. No sh*te there the last week anyway.
