|Callan Marathon Elevation Profile|
Last weekend for example I set off with an ambitious plan to run 58miles from Callan to Waterford City & Back, however things did not go as plan as I got little sleep the night before and in the morning I started off around 90min later then expected.
On Friday after working the entire week and finishing at 7pm I opted to fit in my long run after work rather then doing it on Saturday or Sunday morning.
So I packed up my backpack and decided to run what I like to refer to as the Callan Marathon course.
This route is a nice hilly route that takes me through Windgap, Tullahought and back via Castlemorris Wood to Callan.
For the most part the roads on the route aren't busy but on Friday night it rained alot and by the time I got to Castlemorris wood the battery's in my head-torch weren't doing so well but as it wasn't busy and there was a moon out I could run with the torch off until a car would come so I'd turn it back on.
Overall it was a good hilly training run in wet conditions and it was good to get back into the practice of doing a night run while tired as I've not one of those in many months.
Now, time to get back to a more regular structured training schedule :)
