“Sea at dusk” is the name of this painting by German expressionist Emil Nolde. Funny, the first thing I saw in this picture was the Dreamboat. The National Gallery in Dublin has an exhibition of Nolde’s work and it’s something I’d like to go and see with Pádraig.

But life is busy. Like today: Getting up, OT, breakfast, Physio, working with brain communication (it is as fancy as it sounds:), and in between a visit from a journalist. And that was just the morning.

I continue training for the Hamburg marathon and am enjoying the longer evenings. My training plan tells me that I have moved into a new phase, the one with longer runs. Like a couple of 12k fast runs and the ‘relaxed’ 20k one on Sunday. I am exhausted just thinking about it:)
