And so it has started … in Mallow today the first ten-miler of the Munster series kicked off the New Year for a couple of hundred runners. The race had a nice relaxed feel to it from when I first arrived in the town until I left. Only the wind and rain conspired against us but even that wasn’t too bad.
As I followed the bright yellow signs around the town towards Race HQ, my mind was bent on making sure I didn’t go out too fast today. Having run less in the month of December than I typically would in a week of training, I was well rested. Of course I blew all that by clocking up a nice few miles in a rush-to-the head of New Year resolutions this week. So the training was upside down – do nothing for the month beforehand and then train hard as a race-taper.
