5.02Km in 37:47 (7:32 min/Km) Club Grounds, Frayne, Athboy, Co. Meath

Surprised myself with the pace of this one. The perceived effort was the same as last week’s stumbles so was heartened to see the difference in pace (approx. 30 secs per Km faster). One swallow doesn’t finish your dinner so I’ll keep trudging onwards along the road to fitness recovery.

Nice afternoon for a trot. Brought the pooches for a bit of company. Need to get the mind around to stitching a couple of these laps together. It’s more mental than physical at this stage.

A nice run after work. Feels good to be getting out a bit more consistently again. Hope to get out 4 times this week.

2 x 3Km. I’m trying not to obsess about pace or distance. The focus is on getting out regularly and building up slowly. The thoughts of having 2 races coming up in March is niggling at me but I intend to treat them as faster training runs with company.

2 x 3Km. Mentally just wasn’t at the races. A late night last night coupled with a long day yesterday at a squad session in Tullamore, all taking their toll.

A 4-day week at last. The previous one was in December, with another one last October. Explains a lot about where I am right now.

8.74Km in 1:35:38 (10:57 min/Km) Kildalkey, Co. Meath

While in theory this was just a walk, it wasn’t that much slower than my marathon pace so I’m claiming it for training purposes. I went out to double-check the measurement of the road race route for the 17th March.

The tactic of focusing on covering the distance rather than pace is paying off. Have decided to knock running the 5 Mile Race next week on the head. I won’t do myself any justice and it will only add to the stress of the day. I’ll continue to gradually increase mileage over the next few weeks; hopefully getting 5 runs in this week. With 3 weeks to the Dunboyne 4 Mile that will be the next “training run with company”.

I don’t expect to back to the stage I was at last September/October until May/June of this year. From there I can target some races and hopefully bring down my 5K and 10K times.
