Another incredible day runining in the VERY beautiful Curracloe Woods and Beach. I was deligeted to come in 2nd to an amazing runner. I pushed myself hard and really enjoyed the view as I ran through the woods and back up the beach which was a TRUE killer on my legs. Once the legs got tired I had to concentrate on using my arms to keep pushing myself and moving myself forward!
I did a great time of 47 mins which I was really happy with as it wasn't a straight road run but mainly through woods and then a hard push back up along the beach to the finish line which was a short struggle up a steep hill down to the finish line. My brother Martin took Gold in the men's which was nice to take a Gold and Silver home for the Team Askins family :)
I've really noticed a huge increase in my fitness and energy levels not to mention my clothes look and feel much better on me too. Shelley is a great trainer and seems to know just the right thing to say when you're feeling a bit lazy to make you push yourself to get the most out of each session. - Carmel
