It’s almost time for people to put on the runners, dust off the bike, don the lycra, defog the goggles, stretch out the legs, swim till your arms fall off, cycle far, pedal fast, run up that hill and get shouted at by Bertie Sherlock for staying in the comfort zone. You are not delph. You won’t break!
Gotta love training!!
Training: the first meeting of our new committee will take place this week. They will be deciding on what to include in the off season training programme. This will be published on this website during the week.
Starting back: as you must know by now – we start back next Saturday with a cycle at 9
Long time lurkers: take a read of our recent article – The First Step is the Hardest. Hopefully it will convince you to take the first step into the world of triathlon and cycling with our club.
Club Gear Order: Kenneth Kennedy is putting in another gear order in two weeks time. Think about what you need for the upcoming season and get in contact with him. You will have to pay a deposit for your gear before the order goes in.

Nenagh CC Rás Team: those that have indicated an interest in training for the rás next year or just training with the guys that are targeting the rás should make an effort to attend one of our training sessions this coming weekend. We hope to train as a team as much as possible so try to fit some of these team training sessions in when you can. We don’t expect you to be at every session but we don’t want people to be strangers either. This is a team effort after all.
Viber: we have a Rás team viber group – find it on your smart phone and join it if you are interested in our training.
- Saturday cycle – we will be starting at 8:00 from the hotel. Full details of the route will be published later in the week.
- Sunday cycle – we will be starting off our training programme by doing the lake route – 120km.
Sprint National Champs, Clogherhead: Darren Dunne was the club’s sole representative at this big event in Co. Louth. Facing a very strong field on the Category 1 start line, Darren had his work cut out to finish well. A strong swim of 10:02 was good enough to get Darren into the second bunch on the road. A super fast final run of 14:58 saw Darren pass a lot of guys and secure a final 2nd place finish on the podium. Darren should be very proud of this achievement. It’s not everyday you win a National champs medal.
Berlin Marathon: congrats to Eoin Woolley on finishing the Berlin marathon. Eoin put in a fantastic performance to finish just under the 3:00 mark, in a time of 2:59. Great stuff!
