SplashWorld 10km

April 13th, 2014

What a disastrous couple of weeks since the 1st run of the sesson in Mount Juliet. I now know I really shouldn’t have done that run, the calf injury just was too much.

Now it’s been weeks of frustration as my training plan had to go out the window. It also took weeks for my head to get around this injury so I entered this SplashWorld event with trepidation.

It’s been a few years since I did this race and I hadn’t realised that the course had changed to a more flatter one. 2 laps around the main sea front area of Tramore.

At the start I managed to get a good starting position and away we went at high speed. Although I was determined to stay on a predefined split time as I didn’t want to over do the come back race. Things were good to the half way point then the energy drained a little and the last 2 kms were tough going but end3d with a time of 41:42 which is just 8 secs from my PB and a whole 4 mins 07 secs faster than the time I did here 2 years ago.

So finally I feel back on track.
