Saturday: Oranmore parkrun
Sunday: Curing a work Christmas Party hangover
Saturday was going to be a very fun packed day, with the Connacht Rugby match in the evening and work Christmas Party straight after, I decided to do my local parkrun. Sunday training session was written off from the get go.
It was cold enough on Saturday morning and a bit wet from the rain over night. Had a banana and a coffee about an hour before the run. I don’t run particularly well with a full stomach and always get a side stitch, even if I eat breakfast 2 hours before.
Legs still didn’t feel too good after that 5-a-side football on Tuesday, which was quite worrying. Mainly for that reason, I was not able to push myself. It is the first time, that my watch and the official parkrun time were exactly the same. I’d like to think, that the Garmin fenix 3 is much more accurate than my previous Forerunner 220. parkrun time was 25:08.
An absolute cracker of a rugby match. Connacht scored a converted try in the last minute of the game and secured the win against Wasps 20 – 18. Ecstatic atmosphere.
Sunday was a hangover recovery day and still not feeling great on Monday. Rest day today and the first training session of the week is tomorrow. 5.30 am alarm as usual. Back to running.
