W9R2 Dublin

In my 2 days so far in Dublin England lost at the rugby (cries to herself), we have had bitter winds, hailstones, some sleet, and some beautiful sunshine. Sunday is my normal R2 day, but I had a blister on the ball of my foot from too much walking on Saturday, and a cough, so I decided to delay to Monday. This morning, still had blister and cough, but decided I had to get on with it. Funnily enough, neither caused a problem, although I didn't enjoy the bitter cold and wind.

I ran several loops and diagonals around St Stephen's Green attended by commuters walking to work and two other middle aged lady runners in similar condition to me. The GPS was all over the place, Runkeeper said I had run 0.5k about 20 seconds into my run. But it's done. Just one more to go, Wednesday is normal R3 day, will still be in Dublin.

  • Wow, one more to go. At least that's something to celebrate - at least you don't support Scotland, then you really would be miserable. Well done on your running journey - hope you make it and the sun shines for you on Wednesday.

  • Miserable doesn't even begin to describe this Scottish supporter!

  • Well I think they were robbed their last 2 games.

  • I won't mention the rugby ;) I'll just wish you all the very best for your graduation run on Wednesday. :)

  • I haven't seen the Scotland game yet, I would definitely be crying if I were a supporter.
