A lovely afternoon easy run with the boys. Relaxed.

Running 4:45:11 [2] 36.67 km (7:47 / km) +1430m 6:30 / km
ahr:136 max:172

Trying to get a few miles in. Got about 10m visibility, which played nicely into my compassless hands.
Was not at all sure I was on route to Conavalla until I hit some deathly bog I felt must be Hag’s troughs. Pretty confidnet summitting connavala then. Zero confidence coming off it as it was all flat on top and without a compass there was nothing to go on, nice. Got it a bit wrong but my M16 general directions skills are alright, so corrected okay. Lovely little run up Lug then, which was surprisingly fine, aside from getting very windy.

Coming off it seemed alright too, got by alright on to Mount Lough(?), came off this but the path disappeared and turns out my M16 general direction skills ain’t that great. Went 90 degrees of the hill, hit forest. Tried to figure it out, nope. Ran down in roughly the right direction.
Nope, Aughavanna, not Glenmalure. Oh shite. Nice one Colm.

Was low on time with the match, and daylight and my faffing and mistake had already added what would surely be 10-15k, to the planned 44k.
Ended up hitching rides back to Laragh, and got suitable punishment in the form of a lecture from a very reasonable Wicklow mother on running solo in the mist, and also about the need for Hi-vis I’m case you get lost.

From laragh thought about hitching back up to Wicklow gap, but figured I should at least get something respectable from the long run, so went up the weaker of my two options - St. Kevin’s Way (not camaderry).

Mostly missed out on a good bit of climb, but will have to be back to check out a few of those spots in the future and try not get lost.

Easy one in the park.
Kept it short to watch the calf. No issues, but other muscles (hip / hamstring) were still a bit tight early on so stopped after 15mins to stretch them out which worked a treat and was feeling much nicer after.
Replaced the extra distance with a little bit of spinning after.

Spinning 22:03 [2]
ahr:101 max:132

Easy, but trying to keep up an honest effort. The nature of the gym meant I was drenched at the end of this.

Strength and Conditioning 5:00 [1]
