Had a good session yesterday evening. Rathfarnham WSAF Athletic Club has a nice group of marathon runners / Triathletes lined up in Bushy Park on Tuesday. The lads are running 2k intervals in marathon / half-marathon pace with 90 seconds rest in between. The loop is mainly on grass and the boys are really fit.
As I wasn’t training last week I struggled a bit. I decided to just hang in the group and don’t push too hard. In the last intervals both calf’s tended to cramp. I really have to take in some Magnesium, as cramps became a serious issue in the last weeks of training.
After all It’s really good to run in a group. Ill definitely try to make this session every Tuesday from now on.
This Saturday is race day again with the Frank Duffy 10 Miler in Phoenix Park. After being out sick I’ll just race that with any big expectations. The weather should be fine so I’m looking forward to get a nice hard jog around the park.
