PMJ - Good 5k+ racing. If the pace was faster then you should be happy.
Lorenzo - Enjoy the good weather running
KR, Bike It - Good hill repping and sprinting
Gul - Nice weekly mileage including the 15 miler
MsE - Any pace for a 12 hilly trail miles is good, especially after a good 9 miler.
Tony - I hope your 13 miler and MP running goes well tomorrow. Never an easy run at this stage of a schedule
Good luck Blisters, GDawg and any other racers.
I'm happy to report my hip flexor niggle has eased off a bit and on the mend. Once again I managed to run through the injury without having to take any unplanned days off.
I ran my local Parkrun today and was surprised to break 19 minutes and finish 1st. I wasn't pushing it 100% after the mountain marathon last weekend and I've had the worst DOMS I can remember in my calves all week. The quads weren't too bad but the calves only started feeling normal yesterday.
I only just realises yesterday that I have a half marathon race on Wednesday night that I'd totally forgotten I'd signed up for months ago. I then have a marathon on Saturday so it should be interesting on how I'm able to performed.
I've finally joined my first ever running club. I'm now a member of the 100 Marathon Club Ireland which (believe it or not )is a club for runners specifically targeting running 100 marathons. They organise their own official marathon events to help you reach your 100 marathon goal. Next Saturdays is one of these events in Drogheda so I'm looking forward to meeting lots more mad marathoners like myself.
