Pádraig had a good Saturday with his two friends over from Dublin. It was the first day without this intensive exercise programme for him. Time to recover from what must have been an absolutely exhausting week for him.

I went for the 10 mile race in the Phoenix Park this morning, my first in the race series. The next will be the half marathon, and then the Dublin marathon.

With a bit of luck, there won’t be any need to travel to get here for that.

With a bit of luck, we’ll all be back together, at home.
