49.29, the sub 50 only salvaged by Murph_D's encouragement and refusal to let me DNF I felt great all week and this morning, but by the 2nd mile I knew I was struggling and breathing heavier than I should have been, which only got worse after a hill! I feel very bad for D who had to cope with my diva-like "I'm done!" just as we were coming up to 5k! Once I was gone mentally there was no picking it back up sadly, even though i felt very bad that D had given up his morning for me.
Great to have another TT to look forward to however, and some savage times all the same. Well done organisers and participants!

Had to figure out who you were Lambay Island on Strava. That's some going lad. Very impressive. Be interesting to hear what you made of the effort.

First of all thanks to the lads for organising the TT today.
I elected to do the 10 mile today as my PB goes all the way back Ballycotton in 2014 (1:02:55). I haven’t ran a 10mile race in vain since.
I set myself a target of 59:50 today. My plan was to run the first 10k at target pace of around 3:43/km and then see what was left. An older boy convinced me to run a looped course out in Malahide Castle grounds. Anybody who has ran Malahide parkrun will know it. It is basically the first lap of the PR course with a slight gradual downhill, a flat section and a short sharper uphill. It is just over a mile in distance.
The weather was good, maybe slightly humid, but nothing crazy. After a 3k warm up with some stretching and strides, it was time to set off on the ten laps. I kept on target pace for the first 7km. I felt good and increased the pace at this stage. With two laps or 2 miles to go, I was feeling strong and with AC/DCs razor edge in my ears, I decided to see what I had left in me. Managed to drop down to around my ten k race pace for the finishing miles. I stopped the watch at 58:42.
Very happy with the time. I had a good negative split, and probably could improve my time with some better race management. But overall, I can’t complain at all as I executed the plan and exceeded todays target.
The TTs have been a great motivator for me, thoroughly enjoyed it again today. Well done to everybody who participated today.

I also seem to have been dropped from the table - maybe should have posted on here yesterday, also noticed that Strava cut a bit off my 10 min TT - no need to go updating table.
Did 1.61 m / 2,591 meters approx. Happy enough with it. Strava tells me it's a new mile pb.
Well done to everyone who took part and thanks to the organisers.

I leave him alone for 3 weeks and look what happens!
Dramatic late change in the Female category where Hedgehoggy's 10 min effort has catapulted her to the top of the pile *(subject to Strava confirmation)
In other developments, our very own Almurpho Salazar has been receiving widespread condemnation from the athletics community for his pacing job with ReeReeG.Results!
Well done to everyone who gritted out the wind, rain, humidity, fatigue etc to get this done. Before the actual day it was a war of attrition. Over 50% of the field dropped out for one reason or another. The jury is out on the many injuries. Did that 1 mile take untold toll? :P Realistically it is the world coming back to some kind of normal. Life is opening up again. We are no longer cocooned inside a 2km bubble like the 5km TT, grasping for something to cling to. Events are popping up, coaching services back, plans started for actual real life events.. Never fear there are always some to fly the flag. So, we close down the 3rd edition of the Boards 2020 TT Series. Thank you for participating, motivating each other, bring the craic and giving it a go.
The results are below. It wasn't easy. Format just a little different but kept the essence of it Also we recognise that it wasn't the best day for some that didn't finish their target TT. Spent some time digging out a grading for your best 10 mins to give you some kudos for just giving it a go
