It’s CW’s birthday!  Last night we went out with friends which was great but suffering slightly today …felt 20 times better after run, shower and properly dressed!  Felt pretty slow and painful though!

Day 343 – Sun glorious Sun

After morning cleaning …nipped out for a run in this beautiful sunny day  – the tow path was quieter than expected …can only assume all the people who plan ahead have gone to the beach  – it really is the best weather I have seen here for a long while..

Day 341 -Unexpected Dublin run

So had to go to Limerick today   – when was expecting to go home. As we were not leaving until later I had rang  the hotel in Limerick to see if the hotel gym stayed open late  – alas not  – so had to run before going to Limerick – I had time so went to buy some fresh socks and while I was at it, I bought a whole new running kit  – including new trainers… just to console myself at not being able to go home  -(any excuse)  then  I bounced onto the streets of Dublin in my box fresh gear …Adidas Boost…. back to the office …showered in our rather good office facilities there that I did not even know existed  and then drove with a colleague to Limerick.  All a bit hectic

Day 340 – Dublin gym

Another failed promise to myself  – could not get out of the office in Dublin in time to do a run out to the beach – so instead did a quick spin on the treadmill before dinner.

Day 339 – Tuesday trot

Promised myself I would get out of work early to enjoy some of the sunshine …but alas I was there until kicking out time.  Suffering a bit with muscle onthe side of my leg just above the ankly  – not sure what it is but its not great … hopefully it gets better or at least stays the same until the 30th of June

Day 338 – Back to work…but sunshine continues

Back to the office today ..could be depressing but the one saving grace is that the weather here is just glorious at the moment  – this is our summer  – likely to end any day and not to be seen again except for maybe  a random day in August..I really hope I am wrong and this year we get a cracking summer …please please please

Day 337 – Walled City Marathon …supporting role only

We were in a supporting role today and CW and I really went for it  – I got up early to run as the Marathon started at 8.30am.  We managed to see Kev at 5 separate points.7,13, 21, 25 and the finish..at point 21 …some random man said as he ran past …jeez either I am hallucinating or you two are everywhere!!  Kevin did brilliant  his first marathon and managed a 3hr 47 !  It was won by a 52 year old man in 2hr 30 ish  – amazing day  – Derry people out in force supporting.
