Winter review and summary of races since Nov 2009

Wow.... time flies when your not training. I can't believe its just 2 months since my last blog update, the last one being my race report for IM Florida. The first few weeks post race I just glowed in the felling like you do after seeing a long training period come to fruition. Initially I only took 3 days off but then when I got to Orlando I hit the bike in the gym just to flush out my legs and stretched a bit. I managed 2 runs within the first week and still felt great.

Oh time too much has passed to write reports on all races so here's quick recap of what I've done since Florida.

Debra mountain 1/2 Marathon - 8th
Portmarnock Sprint - Got hit by a car on the bike but got back on and continued. - Finished mid 30's
Wicklow 1/2 Marathon 'Wicklow Gaol Break' - 16th
Mullaghmore Sprint Triathlon - in top 30, 5th in age group
Alive Outside 10km run in Kilruddary house - Came 3rd.
The Beast of the East - See race report below - came 27th
Pulse Hollingsworth Sprint - Came 11th. 3rd fastest bike on the day.
