    Outstanding HM, D, congrats on the huge PB and a fantastic effort. A 5k less than a week later was always going to be tough after that, and you still managed the B goal, super stuff.

    Class, really well done!

    That 4th km is always a b*tch! If only we could switch of the central governor system for that km!

    Brilliant stuff D, that's quite a week! The clothesline bit made me laugh lol!

    Absolutely brilliant D, you are in super shape! I love how you reference so many pubs 🤣🤣 Glad to see you are enjoying the shorter races at the moment too.

    Outstanding! Love the pub by pub race report, touch of class that. 😁

    40-sec PB over 5k - massive. Many congrats.

    Love the report - some great pubs in Kilkenny. Some racing and what a gigantic PB - unreal!

    Brilliant report D, also loving the pub inclusions....reminding me of a few stags (and other trips) down the years...

    Great effort in Madrid all the same & great to get the experience of racing abroad and any additional challenges that come with that.

    Hope the injury doesn't take too long to heal.

    Hopefully the next few weeks will allow you to build as you hope. It must be very frustrating for you.

    PS. 6:20 is not 62 minute pace 😉

    Lucky ducks that you were there to help them😉 Not all heroes wear capes 🦸‍♂️

    Ya logged some nice miles this evening in the fight for consistency. All the best in the next few weeks.

    Just catching up here. Love the duck story, well done.

    Sounds like it's been a frustrating few months alright, but there are signs of things coming together. I've done a couple of marathons myself at less than traditional PB pace and it can be a very enjoyable experience, there's always something to get from it and there's no shame in racing to current fitness. Or you could pace some clubmates, that can be incredibly rewarding. Good luck with whatever strategy emerges!

    The old saying to actually celebrate getting to the start line of the marathon (as opposed to running it) is very apt here. Best of luck over the coming weeks. Hopefully you'll be stood celebrating in the starter pen.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,475 ✭✭✭Laineyfrecks


    A great read & a great time considering you only decided to race a few days previously😉



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,430 ✭✭✭Comic Book Guy


    Absolute beast mode there lad, unreal splits, even the later ones when ya were in the Hurt locker.

    Great confidence booster and I'd say it's tipped the needle for DCM goal time.
