Today in Dublin I finally managed to get out for a recovery run after last weekends full marathon. As is my want I went a little bit overboard and ran a half marathon. Technically a new personal best for me. The last half I ran I feel I could have been a bit faster today I was certain that I physically could not have moved my legs even a tiny bit faster.
Little side note….the event was not very well organised…I did not really see this beyond a lot of traffic “chaos” but looking at the national media yesterday you would swear that people had died tragically trying to get to or from the event. I think headlines like “monumental disaster” should be saved for war zones, natural disasters and massive explosions that cause death and destruction not for people stuck in cars trying to go for a run on a Saturday morning…..
