Back on Track!

Just ran my longest run of the challenge yet. An non stop 27km (17 miles) and feeling great about the 20 miler in Athlone in 2 weeks time… and the marathon in 5 weeks. That week of rest seems to have worked.

Saturday’s Half Marathon

Absolutely gutted to say that I have picked up an niggle to my left calf muscle and knee. On the advice of my physio I am unable to run this Saturday morning’s Half Marathon in the Phoenix Park.

The annoying part, as you can see from the report below from my running app, is that I have ran half Marathon distances for the last 2 Saturdays and was looking forward to this Saturday’s run.

Anyway, slights set firmly now on recovery and fitness for the next race, the 20 miler in Athlone in 3 weeks time.

Half Marathon This Saturday – Route Change

Race 4 of my challenge.

 Slight Route change: The route for this Saturday mornings half marathon in Pheonix Park has been changed slightly by the organisers. You can see the up to date route here
