Get off to a good start: it is important to start the week well. If you miss Monday training then you will be chasing your tail all week trying to catch-up. Bertie’s circuit training is ideal for building the strength needed to last a full triathlon season injury free. Cost is a measly €5.
Changes to the timetable: There are two changes to the training timetable starting this week. The Wednesday evening run and proposed Thursday evening turbo will not be going ahead. There are still plenty of other training sessions on the during the week to choose from, so pick ’em and do ’em.
Triathlon Coaching: The club would like to thank Martin Farrell for volunteering to attend the Level 1 coaching course in Limerick in February. The club is actively encouraging our members to go on these coaching courses to get qualified. We even offer to pay for the course provided you come back afterwards and help with the training of this club. If you are interested in taking us up on this offer then get in contact. This offer is also open for those that wish to do the cycling coaching courses.
Nenagh Cycling Club: We hope to make some progress with regards to setting this up this week. Hopefully, we will have a range of new ideas for developing cycling in the club (beginner, advanced and youth level) and can start rolling these ideas out by the end of the month. If you want to get involved on the committee/coaching side of things then get in touch. The more help the better.
Important dates: two important dates to keep in my mind:
- December 1st: Birdhill Turkey Run – 5km, 10km or half marathon distance available.
- December 14th: Christmas Night Out – Rockys – plenty of free pints and prizes for our top performers throughout the 2013 season.
Racing Results: A few club members were in racing action this weekend. Running was the discipline of choice.
- Inter County Cross Country Championships: With Darren Dunne out sick Killian Cullagh was our sole representative at this event. Killian took part in the U/18 race and came 25th overall. Not bad considering he is still eligible for U/17!
- Sixmilebridge Half Marathon: Shane Scully took part in this finishing second in a sprint finish in a time of 1:19:00 – click to read race report.
