rodney - good to hear you're back - nothing worse than being injured, good to get back out there again,
Paul - Well done on the Dublin time, good to hear you enjoyed it as well.
I ran Berlin at the end of September targeting 3.45, unfortunatly on the day it was a bit on the warm side and ended up running a 3.54 - still a 4 min PB from last year but was going well until halfway, then just struggled to keep the pace, will give it another go next year. Ran dublin with a friend who had been injured and hadnt a lot of training, pretty much a run/walk with him, just to finish - 5.27 in the end, which in a lot of ways was tougher than the PB in Berlin! First time doing Dublin for me and it seems like quite a good event, good support, very friendly and it was great having the water bottles, perfect conditions for those racing too.
I'm trying to get the motivation back now to get a bit of sharpness back and maybe have a go at the cross country races over the winter, plenty on so I've no excuse!
