Sunday Sep 25 #

9 AM

Running 1:04:20 [3] 12.1 km (5:19 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

Nice hilly run in Parc de St Cloud. Drove most of the way there to reduce the amount of dead, boring running. Tried to keep up a decent pace going up the hills and mostly succeeded. The Parc was quite busy with a big fun run being held for a cancer charity.

9 AM

Running race 23:15 [5] 5.0 km (4:39 / km)

Parkrun #2. It wasn't supposed to be this way - 30 secs slower than last week! After a good couple of runs during the week, I felt in pretty good shape and was hoping for a faster time than last week. No really fast guys here this week as the Paris-Versailles 16k race is on tomorrow. But quite a decent turn out all the same, with teh usual smattering of overseaas visitors taking in a bit of Parkrun tourism - this time from UK, Sweden, SouthAfrica, Australia (the Director of the Sydney Parkrun no less!).

Started okay and was going along steadily up to 2km (4.20, 4.24 for the first couple of km). Passed a couple of the early fast starters and was feeling pretty good. Then my arms started to get very sore and heavy and tired, and started slowing down badly up the hill around 2.2-2.5km. Not feeling great at all and felt like I was really just jogging at that stage (I was just jogging!). A UK guy in a black shirt came past me there and he looked like he was going really slowly, which just depressed me. Picked it up a bit in last km and started making up a bit of ground, but it was a hopeless task and so just struggled in to the finish.

Bit disappointing, but was traveling for work last week and have had quite a few late nights. Should have lined these excuses up before Saturday morning. But will re-focus for the next one and perhaps do some more 1km intervals to try and get some speed endurance going ...
10 AM

Running warm up/down 11:32 [3] 1.8 km (6:24 / km)

Jog home.

7 AM

Running (Dublin) 52:44 [3] 9.8 km (5:23 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

In Dublin for work and headed out for a morning run around some of the tourist sights of the city. Quick lap around the quadrangles of Trinity College to check out where they keep the Book of Kells (which I visited later in the day before heading to the airport), Dublin Castle (not really a castle, but more an old building), a nice park, Temple Bar area (still a few revelers heading home). Glorious autumn morning for it. Nice town but horrendous traffic jams, even at 7am. Felt pretty good for a morning run.

1 PM

Running intervals 20:00 [3] 4.2 km (4:46 / km)
shoes: Asics Kayano 22

First crack at a Mona fartlek session. Suspect I didn't do it correctly as it didn't feel too bad. Perhaps just not running hard enough in the hard bits and slowing up too much in the rests.
2 PM
