Running warm up/down 5:00  0.8 km (6:15 / km)
Hill run race ((IMRA Hellfire)) 42:02  6.4 km (6:34 / km) +307m 5:18 / km
Distance is course distance as I don't have my garmin at the moment.
Decided to wear the insoles in my innov8s as a test and actually it was perfect. Didn't notice the shins/calves at all really except for a few niggles that are probably left over from yesterday.
Tried not to kill it up the first hill but said I'd be a bit agressive and get in front of Don to make it a bit interesting. The downhill into the wind was really enjoyable I thought. Actually all the way until the next uphill section I was enjoying myself a good bit.
This stopped when I got to the next hill. Turned the corner and pretty much immediately started walking. Went to spit behind me and saw Don which gave me a little boost going up the hill and down the other side. Nothing really eventful happened then until I reached the top for the second time and splat myself coming off the top down the grass. Lost all confidence and Don came shooting past me. Gained some back when I got to the forrested part but got a stitch from all my pansying and couldn't pass him on the road.
Nemesis thy name is Don Short.

Lovely warm down to the merry ploughman with Routhe, Roisin and Aoife. Down through Masseys which was looking lovely. My calves were little stunners. No complaints.
Feck. Another 130 metres and I would have gotten over 150k for the month for the first time ever.
