Ready to Race / Trail World Championships 2011

Course Elevation.

Race day is almost here and my transition from 24-hr race training to Trail / hill race training has gone as well as I could have wished for.  I've trained hard and put the same effort into my recovery and I'm now ready as I can be.  My bag is packed and as always I have everything I need except the excuse :)

Since last week all of my runs were at a heart rate of less than 70% of my max which is intense enough to maintain what I've got while still allowing rest and recovery in advance of the race effort.  

Training on the Dublin Mountain Way


  1. All the best to you and the rest of the Irish team John. Have a great day.
