    I'm not dead but haven't been training in the gym. Maybe 5 times since I was posting last. Some busy periods in work couple with then laziness. Then I sprained and re-sprained my wrist over the past 10 weeks or so also. Still need to work around it a bit currently. Kept the cycling to work and playing football so fitness levels are still decent at least.

    Non logging highlights include a 3rd place finish in the Irish National Beer mile championship during the Summer with a 8:09 finish. I did two 5k park runs and 2 event practice sessions* in the lead up

    Other notable inclusion was playing in the Football against Racism tournament a few weeks back in the Phoenix park. Made it through the group sessions before being knocked out by the Limerick Black Mambas in the Quarters (lower tier)

    I'm going snowboarding end of this year/start of next year so I'll just try to get the strength levels up before then and try aim for something again in the New Year.

    Saturday 21st September

    7th Annual Irish Beer Mile
    3rd @ 8:08

    Thought this was worth a resurrection post. 3rd same as last year. A Whole Second faster. I actually trained for this one the past two months and was targeting 7:30 but I had a beer mishap on the day after I got a lift last minute versus two long buses and forgot to take my beer out of the fridge. More of my improvement this year was on the beer end but trying to chug cold beer had me back to last year's speed

    Training consisted of 1x5k parkrun a week and 1x 4x400m intervals a week. Best parkrun time was 20:37. Hard a target there of sub 20 but will probably leave that until next year now. Forgot how tough intervals are haven't done them in years. Did 2 trial events and also did a few beer only chug sessions in the run up which is where I saw the biggest gainz.

    I have a video of most of my last lap here. With the beer mishap I had plenty of running energy for the last lap and got back up to 3rd position here with a push for 2nd but it was too much ground to make up




    2nd video better quality but missed the 4th to 3rd passing



    Gym frequency is about the same as it was the last time I was positing. Very sporadic. Maintaining a low base but at least haven't completely fallen off a cliff. Trying to get some consistency going again so I might start logging again.

    Few other notables from year:
    St James Wicklow 100km (1.7k elev): 4hrs
    Hell & Back
    1 week cycling holiday in Belgium & Germany
    2 week's ski & snowboard back to back start of year
