Thur - easy 40 mins mountainbike and 2 miles easy barefoot on grass
Fri - 25.1 miles in Ballyhoura (4hrs 15mins)30 mins mountainbike to and from start of trail
Sat - 7.5 miles garryduff woods 1hr 20mins very hilly kept pace easy
Sun - 8.5 miles same as yesterday with extra loop. felt surprisingly good considering last 2 days
Total- 55miles
This was a good week overall and was nice to get a race in and open up the lungs
I wore my inov 8 f-lite230s in ballyhoura so this is my longest run in them and i am more certain now that they are the right shoes for the Lakeland 100 and also the Wicklow Way ultra next month. Only problem is they have large holes in them now even though i have only been using them since mid november. this is a bit disappointing considering the relatively conservative mileage i have done in them. However in terms of their performance and minimal feel they are top class and easily the best shoe i have ever worn.
