Midweek in the city

A 20km cycle and a 5 km run today. I kept the pace high and was happy with run after cycle. I have had pains in my hip flexer muscle over the last week but today it had improved.Cycling around the city isn’t much fun and really slows you down. I decided after today I will start some cycles further away. Both to increase hill work and to get away from the crazy drivers around the city! Another match tomorrow evening. Probably my last of the season. All guns blazing for adventure races from here on in 😉

Mountain times and some Football to throw me off track.

I finally got the chance to upload some stats from my mountain run last week!

I had a marathon football session yesterday between a match and then a 5 a side tournament. All in all I am wrecked today and a good rest evening is needed. No better time to reflect on some tough challenges ahead!

Next aim is to get some biking in this week and then a 10km race on one of the Aran Islands at the weekend. We are getting some great weather in the West for a change so I hope to make the most of it around a busy work schedual.

The Big race is Saturday week. The WAR wicklow adventure race. 72km in total. Followed by Connemara Adventure Challenge race 2 weeks later to get the racing season underway! Links below..
