Out very early this morning. A very cold start to the day, but a beautiful morning nonetheless. Ran with Fintan and Owen and we knocked off 22.2kms in 1:40:20 (4:31's). I can't say I was feeling great but at least it's done.
Then home for a quick shower and back into town to watch the Rotterdam marathon. A good crowd in the Kings Head and the leaders were setting a cracking pace going through halfway in under WR pace. The inevitable slow-down happened in the second half of the race - hampered by blustery and cold conditions. The first 2 runners still clocked sub 2:05, with Gary just missing out on Olympic qualification running 2:17. An excellent run in the circumstances which he should be very proud of.
Then in the evening I went out to see the Spurs get hammered. Not good. So I got hammered also. Great preparation only one week out from the marathon...
A total of 98.5kms for the week.
