Tracey Atkinson – DreamrunDublin Update!

DreamrunDublin countdown-17 weeks to go!


5 weeks have flew by since I got the news that I will be part of DreamrunDublin project.  The regular weekly training sessions sent by Paul Pollock are always an exciting challenge.  Everyone in the project are lovely and we keep in regular contact, sharing our experiences and supporting each other along the way.


I would say week 5 is coming out of comfort zone time! And the hot weather makes training tough.  This weeks speed work I have ran 20x 400 meters. I like 400s, but I’ve never ran that many before. It was an enjoyable session and I had some of my club members joining in.


My tempo runs, before Dreamrun I would’ve ran a 4mile tempo, at the minute its 6mile and this week’s Long run is like last year’s half marathon pace!  I have to say, I really appreciate rest days. If you told me last year what training I would be doing now, I wouldn’t believe it.


The Dublin marathon is on Sunday October 28th 2018
