This was unusually warm and unfortunately humid & windy day for a Marathon and I found this a tough run. Nevertheless it was part of a good weekend away including a visit to Dara O’Briain on stage at Vicar Street plus some excellent food at Fallon & Byrne and the Rustic Stone. And a vote for the best Hotel Bar goes to the Library Bar in the Central Hotel Dublin.
And you can do a variant on “Where’s Wally” in the video : I do appear 4 times ….
It was hot hot hot … way too hot. Thats the excuse for my slow time that didn’t stop Sarah – 2h09m.
Pleasant evening for a 5k race : Time only 10 seconds or so slower than my PB.
Nice warm-up for Sundays Hackney Half Marathon, which promises to be hot – too hot for my liking.
Back to Regents Park on a beautiful sunny Sunday morning – a bit too warm for comfortable running but we can live with that. Time of 48min 14secs was disappointing being > 2 minutes slower than my PB and actually a slower pace than the Brighton Half Marathon that I ran earlier in the year. This coming after the previous weekend’s Edinburgh Marathon time of 3 hours 45 minutes : Need to get back down to some serious training !
