Day 353: Ten miles of a Saturday

I took part in the Dublin race series 10 mile race in the Phoenix Park. Before the race I definitely fell into the spiral of negative thoughts that can hit you before a race. So much so that I took the first two miles handy and I had even set my pace alerts a good minute slower than I should have.

It was a good run overall. Pretty nice weather if a touch bright. Great atmosphere and so on. My knee locked for the last 50 metres or so which meant I hobbled over the line but a good stretch sorted that out :) Official time was 1hr 22 :)

After a quick shower, I headed out for lunch with my folks. Spent nearly 4 hours over the meal. It was awesome. Drury Buildings is definitely recommended!

Day 352: Pre-finish cold feet!??

I’m feeling odd about the challenge. I’m having an odd moment of panic at the thoughts of it being over. Bizarre given that it’s not over yet!

Nice run this evening with a brief summer shower at the beginning. Still have a slight dose of something. I was a bit wheezy by the end so I’m not looking forward the 10 miler I’m supposed to go on tomorrow :(

Day 351: Last pre work run?

I’d love if that was my last pre work run but I wouldn’t bet on it. One can dream though :)

Very slow again. Still all bunged up but no harm done by going out.

In case people didn’t realise it…tomorrow is Friday 😀

Day 350: 15

I have mixed feelings about today’s run…I seem to have some kind of virus that has left me as weak as a kitten today. Shockingly, the run wasn’t that pleasant.

On the other hand, 15 days left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Day 349: A run with Squirrel

Squirrel joined me tonight as promised. We headed for a gentle one around the quays.

Lots of fun :) I love company when running…especially when it’s as good as tonight’s.

Day 348: The beauty of running

It washes away that Monday feeling :)

Decent run despite having to dose myself with inhalers!

Congrats on the boys for finishing up today…are you going for a run tomorrow??

Day 347: I apologise in advance

I have reached new levels of boredom in my writing. Sorry for all that are reading this.

Out for a slow one with The Dentist again. She’s more fun than her nickname suggests. :)
