Club Notes

Saturday Tri Club Cycle – Saturday was a crisp, dry but cold morning with a good turn out for the club cycle.  12 members completed the 41 mile cycle route, which averaged 15.5mph (average slightly slower than usual due to hils). The cycle route, from Nenagh, out to Toomevara over through Dolla, Silvermines and eventually into Ballina returning to Nenagh by Portroe, consisted of a few drags and hills with Charlies Hill being the toughest challenge. Well done to all, ye managed to complete Charlies Hill! Next weekends cycle will be a much flatter route, with only a few drags.

Group Stroke Work – The group stroke work sessions with Mark Dempsey will be starting on Wednesday, 7th November, from 8 – 9 pm (Cost €2 per person). Mark has requested that all those taking part in this stroke work session to complete either a 500mtr (20 lengths) or 1000mtr (40 lengths) time trial swim. This swim is to be done in your own time, not possible during a club session… and remember to time yourself. Swim is to be done at a quick to fast pace. When you have this completed, text your name and time to Cliodhna McGrath 0872938847 before Wednesday 7th November.

Saturday Team DMG / Wheelers Cycle – Well done to everyone that took part in this war cycle. It seems like this cycle was a little bit all over the place. We must reduce the amount of testosterone injections some of ye are getting as the machoness has to stop. We are not racing each other. We are cycling as a group not as a bunch of individuals. That means you cycle side by side with the person next to you and not try to bury them. If Myself (Shane) or Eamon are not at the cycle then someone else has to take charge and control it. If you think it is going too hard then it probably is – slow it down! Next up: Cycle at 9:00am Monday from the pool (tomorrow) – myself and Eamon will be at this so you can be assured it will be at a more controlled pace.
