Lap3) 9.25
Lap4) 9.31

my 1st one quite fas- Bill was hoping to get 12km done in 50mins i reckoned he wouldnt make it- not that far off though cos he did extra 2km in 51mins.. he did lap1 in approx.8.30 before i arrived but i could tell he wouldnt be able to keep it up

long run tonight.. not really feelin tired now- so hopefully i'm up to it!!

Running 1:40:00 [2] 14.0 km (7:09 / km) +800m 5:33 / km
shoes: Asics Running shoes

very very very dark.. sure throw in an extra very there! we all turned offour torches at 1 stage and couldn't see each other from a metre away! after our eyes adjusted- around 20secs- we could see each others outlines.
not that tired once again slow on uphill but was slow anyway. ran with dave early on then after he turned back ran with niall a bit and kieran a bit too. towards fairy castle bit of a loaner as i wanted to go slower then the pace they were running at

Cycling: Commute 17:00 [4] 8.92 km (31.5 kph) +30m
shoes: Asics Running shoes

pushin real hard (after the downhill) while on flat and slight uphill.. was racing Kieran. he won! in fairness though he was in a car.. he got a good run of lights and lost me. i think i was catchin Gerard B but then he went straight and i went left. i was definately catching but wasnt 100% sure it was him

last night was great craic... :) happy with my earnings too so :)

rathfarnham tonight.. 2km's but just above my ass feels really weird.. kinda sore but not too bad - feels like muscle!? its weird kinda in my arm too though!? when i touch my right bicep in certain spot it hurts.. feels like a knot.. :0 dun dun duuuuuuun!!

Running 3:35 [2] 0.6 km (5:58 / km)
shoes: Asics Running shoes

warm up feeling very sluggish.. guess tired from weekend still + yesterdays rest day didnt have very much rest as rugby was very physical and i was up real late at mates

Running 24:19 [5] 6.0 km (4:03 / km)
shoes: Asics Running shoes

3x2km intervals with 2mins break.. long break cos i am runnin dublin u-18 x-c champs on sunday
Lap1) 8.01
Lap2) 8.04
Lap3) 8.13
very slow!! just tired from weekend i think i would skip trainin 2moro and take another rest but i need the long run so i will probably skip thurs and take a rest...
did slightly longer loop i think (very slight) and at least i was pretty consistent

Running 8:00 [1] 1.2 km (6:40 / km)
shoes: Asics Running shoes

these were exact time and distance.. havent rounded up or down even slightly.. kinda weird there both so perfect was random loop

(rest day)

i have done some very detailed study of my time trials splits and lap times with Josh's, Sean's and Conor's and come to the conclusion that i need more hills!!
I'm gonna start doing them this week probably on thursday

i also noticed sean is very inconsistent, whereas myself, Josh and Conor were much more consistent- a very good thing but i was losing my time on the hill section..

i kinda already knew this though but couldn't find where to fit hill intervals in in a week

Stretching / Rolling 10:00 [1]
shoes: white runners/ shoes

warm up weird things

Rugby 50:00 [4]
