Only saw bits of it but they looked awful, probably lucky to even get a point, something is desperately wrong.
Champions elect Arsenal up next then Man City  :-\

Cheers lads, think I'll stick with the pacer then and see how it goes.  Mostly stuck to the plan with the odd missed run now and again.  Confident enough so I'll see how it goes.
Is it Dublin you doing? Pacers generally very good and hold an even pace. I wouldnít get too worked up in staying right beside them though. The first half or even the first 15 miles in Dublin is mainly uphill, keep the pacers in sight but donít be afraid to ease off on the pace on the uphills, the pacers usually keep an even pace and donít drop off for the hills.

From the Walkinstown roundabout at 15miles to the end there are only a couple of short hills so you would have plenty of time to catch back up to them if they are a bit ahead. The last 6 km is nearly all downhill or very flat so if you have anything left then is the time to really go for it.

Laois had a hurler call Paddy Ruschitzko and have a town called Ratheniska. Is there some Polish connection?
