Well my recovery period was short and sweet and today I went for my first run since the 100K. Took it nice and easy and covered around 4 miles in 32 minutes keeping my heart rate under 130 bpm. My legs are still feeling a little bit heavy but the muscle pain has gone which is a good thing because tomorrow I'm a guest in the Science Block of Trinity College and will be taking part in a fitness related experiment. This involves going head to head with the captain of the Kilkenny Hurling team to see if the GAA player is fitter than a long distance runner.
