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..
A long day at work today so I literally ran in door and back out again on the bike. It was a cold spin out the coast into a nice head wind but all in all a good session and feeling good considering match yesterday. I plan to climb Carrauntoohill, Ireland’s tallest mountain on Thursday. I am working the weeks training around this so a good gym session with a run along with soccer training tomorrow, and a rest day Wednesday should set me up nicely !
A nice healthy dinner tonight.
Recipe : Wild trout, “caught myself!”, sweet potatoes with herbs and chilly, and a salad with radishes,red peppers,wild garlic, fresh coriander, fresh mint leaves, lemon juice and some rapseed oil. Some salt and pepper added to all.

This has been the ongoing story this winter in the West. There is no doubt it interferes with training and all sports. Wrap up well everyone and wait for the winds to pass before venturing out!
I’m just in from a few hours shooting with the dogs on the bog. Great exercise and fun for both me and the dogs!! Weekends training will develop mostly depending on the weather!
