Turbo Training: is finished for the season so there will be no turbo training this week. The club will be organising some tough as nails Tuesday and Thursday evening cycles as soon as the clocks change at the end of this month. The running complex will still be opened on Thursday if you need to call in to collect your turbo. Please don’t leave your turbo in the storage area for the next 6 months!
Club Table Quiz: The next big club event on the calendar is the club table quiz on Friday, March 22nd in Rockys. Please show your support by turning up with a team in tow.
Cullagh & Dunne to represent Ireland: Killian Cullagh (Nenagh Vocational School) & Darren Dunne (St. Joseph’s, Borrisoleigh) will represent their schools & Ireland at the SIAB Schools Cross Country International in Wales on Saturday 23rd March. Both boys are Tipperary’s only representatives having finished 8th & 9th in the Intermediate race at the recent AVIVA All-Ireland Schools Cross Country. Good luck to both boys who don the Irish singlet for the first time.
Borrisokane 10km: Well done to Eoin Woolley, Eddie Tucker, Sinnead Oakes, Majella Moyles and Úna O’Doherty at the Borrisokane 10km. Sinnead claimed a prize for 4th place woman overall in a time of 44:37.
Keeper Challenge: Well done to Benny Delaney and Donnchadh Floyd for completing the tough Keeper Challenge last week.
Bike Racing Team: Just 4 of our team were in racing action last weekend. Shane, Gary, Kevin M and Kenneth took part in the Carrick Wheelers Cup on Sunday but didn’t come away with any points. Each of the lads finished in the main bunch with Kenneth coming the closest to scoring, finishing just outside the top 10.
The excuses for team members missing races are coming in thick and fast nowadays, so you better get your excuse in early for next week. If someone needs a spare excuse then there are a few leftover for this week – I have to take my aunt to Lourdes, I have food poisoning, I don’t race on the sabbath day, it’s my birthday and I am going to Jump N Gyms. As usual send all excuses to the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next up: is the Des Hanlon race in Carlow. This would be considered to be one of the top races on the calender and it should be a race that everyone targets.
Swimming: 1 on 1 stroke work:
