Sat – Treadmill easy run 7.0km 30:00 (4:17’s)

Sun am – Bert Gillard 8km 27:40 (3:28’s)

Sun pm – Moylough 10km 35:31 (3:33’s) – all up 21.kms for the day

Weekly Total 92.0kms

I ran the 8km in Tuam at 10am and I wasn’t pushed so I took it fairly easy and won by a decent margin. I then jumped straight into the car and drove to Moylough which was about 15 minutes away. Just time to register and I lined up for my second race of the day. Again nobody to challenge me which was good as I wasn’t up to much. The race was tough for the first 5km but I managed to push the second half a little more to chalk up the second win of the day.

That second race was my 100th win since moving to Ireland (based on races where official results were released). I’ll put up the full list when I get a chance but that’s not a bad record in just 6 years!

Still not running well though – I’ll keep plugging away and see if I can get back into form by the end of the year…
