My 9.5km route covered in 39:43. Always nice to keep this run under 40 minutes. Windy and cold today - I hope the weather is a bit better tomorrow for the 8km race.
Talking of which, people say there are a few hills and drags but from my experience, in Irish terms that isn't comparable to say the LCNP 10km so should offer up a decent enough chance to run a good time. Anything sub 26:30 I'll be happy enough with. The aim is to get somewhere near 20km done in total by doing a decent warm-up/warm-down.
