Triathlon watching and more mountains.

Another enjoyable weekend of sports has come to an end. I got in some tough hill repeats, a fast 5k (including my fastest mile to date) and an open-water swim during the week, before setting off for Glin Co. Limerick on Saturday to do chauffeur/gear monkey/bike mechanic/cheerleader duty for Catherine, who was doing the Glin Triathlon with some of her Tralee Triathlon Club buddies. The tri went well, and everyone had a great time – Catherine was pleased to get another one under her belt, as she continues to improve, as was her friend Anne, and their clubmate Ciara won the women’s race.

I get up bright an early this morning to do the now-familiar Short Mountain 10 miler, and it really was a fantastic morning for it – lovely and sunny. I got in my third fastest time on the Short Mountain climb to date, and feel I’m in a good place for my second run this year of the Tullaroan Marathon in 2 weeks.
