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:

  1. I wore warm clothes. Beanie, gloves and an over layer.
  2. I found my desired pacer in the starting pen and began from there.
  3. I carried more gels and used them at the halfway and three-quarters marks.
  4. 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.
