The week before last I joined Kilkenny City Harriers, I've been meaning to join an athletics club for some time now and finally decided to do it. I'm hoping this might force me to properly do some speed work and also to push myself abit more with faster paces on runs (I've always found this easier in group runs).
Sunday's run was my first outing with the club, it consisted of loops of the castle park in Kilkenny City on the paths and also on the grass. I must admit I found the grass hard going as I do pretty much 100% of my running on roads.
The clubs run was a 70min run at a 8:00min/mile pace, however I stayed on with the one club member in the group who is training for London.
In the end I finished up with 15miles at a 7:53min/mile pace, felt pretty good and very happy with the faster pace for this sort of distance as I normally do something in the region of 8:30min/mile plus.
Aiming to up the miles again this week to around 60-65miles.
Weekly Total: 38 miles
Miles This Year: 127 miles
