Pot luck

That's what it feels like at the moment. If it's not raining when it's time for a run you're extremely lucky.

Nice fartlek on Monday started the week off well. Overall 5.36 miles in 34:13. That's an average of 6:23 for the run including the recoveries at 7:00 to 7:30. It felt comfortable too - that's a good sign - isn't it??

On Tuesday I planned on taking it easy. But the 5.72 miles ended up being at 6:42 min/mile (159bpm) - it didn't feel that quick!

I was brought back to ground when I stumbled across this clip staring David McCarthy at Providence College. It puts my 5 mile tempo runs in perspective - 5:00min/mile - wow - I've still some work to do!!......



i think I'm getting use to this rain, at least its not really cold!
Great vid those guys make sub 5 pace look soo easy, dam I'd be out the back [a breathless wreak] after 400m :]
Hope your book comes soon!

Nice workouts Brendan, sounds like you're in really good shape for the half-marathon!

I wouldn't worry about those Providence guys. Your tempo runs are on hills and I doubt that they'll show up for the Waterford HM.
