I intended to start this DUBLIN CITY MARATHON 2017 Training Blog on Sunday but I was just too tired😴😴 After a Spring of ok results (not quite what I was aiming for but hey...) I decided to enter DCM. Target very simple - to break 2.40; that is; around 6.05 per mile. Simple to type not so simple to do. I've done it b4, but in Barcelona and Rotterdam. My fastest Dublin is 2.41.
