Previous race: Gaelforce Howth Summit 10k
Went well. Flat course. Ran long and hard.
Yesterday I applied the lessons of the Phoenix Park half marathon:
- I wore warm clothes. Beanie, gloves and an over layer.
- I found my desired pacer in the starting pen and began from there.
- I carried more gels and used them at the halfway and three-quarters marks.
- I set and stopped my run timer as I crossed the start and finish lines.
Other than that, the run was a straightforward out-and-back to Sutton. I got ahead of the 1:45 pacer popped on a podcast and shut off for two hours.
