Corofin Winning Ways 8km

Trying another race to gauge progress:

Mon – 2km up, 10km Claregalway threshold run 34:49 (3:29’s), 2.1km down. All up 14.1kms

Tue – Athlone easy run 7.9km 35:47 (4:32’s)

Wed – Claregalway 14.2km recovery run 54:00 (3:48’s)

Thu – Mayo AC easy running 11.3kms

Fri - 2km up, 10km treadmill threshold run 31:54 (3:12’s), 1.0km down. All up 13.0kms

Sat – Treadmill 8.0km easy run 32:30 (4:04’s)

Sun – Corofin 8km – 27:35 – all up 12.9kms

Weekly Total 81.4kms

A tough first half to the race into a strong breeze but I managed to work away from the field and had opened up a nice gap. I tried to push the second half but had no pace and despite the win it was a very disappointing run. I thought I'd break 27 with ease but I was nowhere near it. So not really the confidence booster that I was after!
