Left my watch at home this morning
More or less 10k home, in about an hour
On the good side, it's definitely getting brighter, it was daylight all the way home today

Nice run this evening. Started with a 6k lap around UCD on the trail (cheers ecoli - I'd got as far as the Fosters Avenue exit before, but didn't realise there was a way through behind the residences), something I think I'll be doing again, then home.
Left foot feels a bit odd now and again. Not even twinge-level, but sometimes I feel very aware of a section of the top of my foot, or my big toe. oh well....

Club session this evening
A couple of k warmup, then 25 minutes of intervals - 200 fast, 100 slow (more or less, we're not running on a track). Afterwards some of the guys suggested 'jogging back the long way', which turned out to mean 4k+ at about 4.30 pace

Recovery run into work. Seem to be a bit phlegmy yesterday and today - the youngest has had a cough, which I hope she's not passing on to me...

Longish easy run. Chugged around the mud in Tymon Park, then popped over to Cherryfield to do the same there, including a lap of the hill route we use in the club. This brings me back over a 10k/day average, so I'm happy with that.
Then up to Tallaght for the kids' races (passed Meno on the way up, running past the Spawell in a Donadea 50k top) to see the kid run in the 4x100m relay. Not such a good race today (they had a bit of trouble with the baton handover) but he was happy enough so I'm happy...

Did you pass me on car or foot? I was running back from work in my first t-shirt + shorts combo of the year. Lovely weather for it. I may even have taken a bit of sun
I'd have said hello if I was on foot
What a shambles.
We had 2 teams in the final for Emilys age group and they put team A in lane 2 and team B in lane 1 (that wasn't the problem though) the helper over at the first change over moved the team A girl into lane 1 and team B into lane 2 (he made one hell of an assumption). The race starts our girls get off to flyers and then a big mess at the change over that left them a good 30/40m off the lead. I was fuming.
under 9 girls? Bros Pearse would have crushed you anyway
(in fairness to the organisers, I was getting a headache just looking at it. Races starting every few minutes, different age groups, relays of different distances, kids so young they have to be set in place, all funnelling on and off the track )
U10 and I don't think SO
Don't get me wrong it was fantastic and that race was the only real error I spotted all day long. Really enjoyable. I just felt bad for our girls (few tears and all that)
Just watched a video of the final there and yous were very unlucky not to win. I think that decision could have gone either way.
That's the downside all right, if something goes wrong....
I'll bet there were hundreds of parents thinking like me "just don't drop the baton, don't drop the baton, DON'T DROP THE BATON!"

loop around UCD and then home. Bit of a wind out there that I only noticed when I got off campus and started running into it. On the bright side, it was bright all the way home.
