9 AM

Running (Road) warm up/down 7:44 [3] 1.4 km (5:32 / km) +15m 5:15 / km
shoes: Asics Gel Noosa-Tri11

One lap of the park thinking this was the lap........this was not the lap...Nice section of the woods has fairy doors made by kids on all the trees.

Running (Road) race 17:34 [5] 5.0 km (3:31 / km) +35m 3:24 / km
shoes: Asics Gel Noosa-Tri11

Decided to start fast and see if there was anyone to play with, after a 45sec first 250m I was all alone. Aimed to keep the effort honest and to enjoy the change of scenery. Nice route, some gravel road, some footpath, some tarmac walkway and some rocky/rooty trail sections along the river, Quite twisty in places and small gaps to take the corners at the bridges at speed. Had the course record time in my mind of 18:09 so lowered that a bit.

2nd best parkrun time after the 17:07 with someone to race while here i was 4min40sec clear of 2nd place and first lady.

Almost caused consternation
10 AM

Running (Road) warm up/down 18:13 [3] 2.74 km (6:39 / km) +17m 6:27 / km
shoes: Asics Gel Noosa-Tri11

One lap alone with a chat stop to one of the marshalls and also a stop to help someone look for an earing. Then a second lap with Judith and Derek taking it handy and chatting running rubbish.

Running (Road) 48:29 [3] 11.15 km (4:21 / km) +91m 4:11 / km
shoes: Asics Gel Noosa-Tri11

Everyone had short field days so I took that to mean that data manager to take a short office day too. Went running in a random direction for some exploring. Up a small borreen thinking itd connect through to the other road, realised it didnt when after ~400m I was in someones front garden. On past the GAA club and following the signs for Connacht Ice Baths only to pass a Tellus van and see Helmi and Taru in a field picking blackberries to make me a pie! Now if thats not good housemates I dont know what is. Ended up being a nice lap when it all got sorted out. Home in time to drop the lads to the train station and to get take out with Ken before a night of SkipBo with the Finns eating pie.

Running (Road) 38:29 [4] 10.1 km (3:49 / km) +93m 3:39 / km
shoes: Asics Gel Noosa-Tri11

Lots of pent up energy for some reason and the body decided it wanted to clip along at a decent pace and who was I to tell it otherwise. Planned to do just 1*5km lap from the house. Felt good so decided to go for a second lap. 19:53 for the first 5km and then 18:14 for the second 5km, faster than any of the Athlone parkruns I've done (on pace) good ego boost ahead of NI Champs that its not all doom and gloom on the training front.
7 PM

S&C/Injury prevention 21:03 [3] 0.23 km (1:30:44 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel Noosa-Tri11

2 Sets with 1 minute off in between. Should be able to build up over time, now that I've a written POA.
