Roll on Portumna 100km

Welcome to Co Tipperary, best roads ever! ;)
Some lovely country miles during this week and last, not many of them but enjoyable none the less.

Its times like this that I'm happy I took up running back in 2010, outside of traveling to events around the place its the little things that I like, being out in the morning at or before sunrise when nobody else is awake for another 1 or 2 hours, the peace and quiet of it all and running on roads locally that I've either never been on before or finding out just how much more you see when compared to driving on them.  

For anyone that reads my blog and thinks they'd like to start running or run a longer event then they've run previously, do it! won't regret it :)

Slievenamon Mountain in the distance
Anyway, this week consisted of shorter taper runs only after doing a 10mile long slow run last Saturday, the week was:

- Saturday 10miles @ 8:49min pace
- Sunday: Rest
- Monday: 3miles @ 7:26min pace
- Tuesday: 3miles @ 8:14min pace
- Wednesday: 2miles @ 9:09min pace

So that's it for the running this week as Thursday and Friday are rest days.  Everything is as packed and as ready as it's going to be.       I'd be lying if I didn't say I was nervous about this race, I'm under no illusions that its going to be a very long time on my feet but I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Wish me luck :)

Weekly Total:  18 miles
Miles This Year: 995 miles
