Wednesday: AM 7 Miles w/ Strides, Malahide Castle.
Nice run on the grass at Malahide castle with Mark Carroll, Vinny Mulvey, and Mark Flotrack. Felt really good although my knee continues to be a problem. We hit the road after the run and arrived into Armagh last night. Met up with Gar Turnbull who I haven't seen in a long time and that was as usual fantastic. Also got stuck into the tea and Easter eggs with Tommo and his lady friend Gemma which contributed to my inability to fall asleep despite taking up to 4 sleep aid pills. The race is tonight and I am looking forward to getting a nice stretch of the legs. I will be conservative since this is just a precursor to my main two traces, the Ras and National XC. I just want a steady effort, harder than a workout but not killing myself because I am not strong enough to do three hard races in 8 days.
Peace and Love,
