  1. RUN
    good DunLaoghaire - Blackrock 16.37 mi 01:55 07:03 pace

    The plan called for a 16 mile "wave" run - alternate miles at a moderate and marathon pace. To make it a bit more "stressful" I aimed for a 7:20/6:40 moderate/marathon pace (7:0... read more

      Considering you're weeken sessions Grellan your Tuesday runs are very tough and your powers of recovery are in the Premier league, superb session last night

      I could have done with leaving another day to recover from the weekend Keith, but it's best to get it over when the the opportunity presents. Thanks Cathal, if you don't put it in the bank now it won't be there to drawdown on race day.

    Sunday morning spin with Adrian and Liam. Liam pulled us along for the first 2 hours before leaving us to carry on our own. Legs a bit heavy. Avg Hr 117.

  5. swim
    Bishopstown 2000 m 00:44 35:24 pace

    Easy effort aerobic swim - i'm getting use to the repetitive nature of pool swimming and added on 20 lengths to last weeks distance. Time guessed.

  6. RUN
    good Murphys Farm. 20.26 mi 02:32 07:30 pace

    The plan said 20 miles on grass, so that's what I did. The ground was soft underfoot so my target pace of 7:30 felt a bit tougher than expected. I was joined by clubmate Pat for the first 5 mi... read more

  7. RUN
    good Ballincollig 5.55 mi 00:43 07:46 pace

    Managed to squeeze this one in this evening after a busy work week. Hammys still tight from Tuesdays session (particularly the left one). Avg Hr 124..

  8. RUN
    alright Ballincollig 5.13 mi 00:45 08:50 pace

    Easy recovery run after work. Both hammys tight after yesterday's speedwork. No HRM.

  9. RUN
    good Ballincollig - Straight Road 16.81 mi 02:03 07:18 pace

    Once you up the ante and begin serious training running becomes as much a mental battle as a physical one. After the 3 hour commute from Dublin in the evening drizzle I was too late for the club tr... read more

      Very well written and a very good workout. I can empathise with the idea of the mental struggle. It must have been even tougher given the long day you had. Hope the dinner was good.

    Steady run off the bike. After a 10 minute rest and taking on some fuel I planned on repeating last weeks 5.5 mile route, but got into a grove and extended it to the hour - challenging enough but a... read more

      Sunday mornings are getting a bit long Keith. I don't know whether I should be greeting people I meet with "Good Morning" or "Good Afternoon" . I don't know for how long I can keep up the disappearing act.

    good Ballincollig - Ballyvourney 60.9 mi 03:43 16.4mph pace

    Kept to the main road for this morning's cycle with Adrian and Liam because of the icy conditions. Adrian had a few gastro issues so we took it easy on the return leg. Avg Hr 120.

    The second quality session of marathon training week #1 called for 18 miles with the last 2 @ marathon pace. To keep me honest I planned on keeping a steady 7:30 pace for the first 16 miles so as t... read more

    good Ballincollig - Victoria Cross 12.08 mi 01:55 09:30 pace

    Easy evening run with Adrian. Ate too much before going out so the run wasn't very comfortable with a lead weight in my stomach. Avg Hr 107.

      Somewhere under the 3 hour mark Keith. Nothing more definite than that until the training commences and I can compare with my last marathon training cycle. A PB would be nice though :) - sub 2:54:35.
