There was a fine turn out of 37 at this evening’s 5km run. It is great to see so many new faces each week. Once again, there was a wide variety of abilities in attendance, with everyone giving their all. The weather conditions were favourable this evening with just a light breeze to cool everyone down. This resulted in some fast times. Even if you didn’t go well today, there is always next week. Commit to doing all the races in the series and there will be improvements – just stick at it!
Make sure not to judge improvements from week to week – you are looking to see the trend over a number of weeks. The time to get worried is when your last few races are much slower than your first few!
The format for today’s run was a lucky dip. The 3 winners were picked randomly according to their finishing position. Everyone started together and it wasn’t long before there were bodies all over the course. Everyone was just focusing on their own run and trying to push it as hard as they could. We hope everyone is happy with their efforts. The winners on the night were – 1st Conor Lyons, 2nd Eoin O’Connor, 3rd Paudie Hickey.
Next up – Run 4 will take place next week – same time, same place. The format will be the same as run 1 where the winner is the person that predicts the closest time to their actual run time. This should be very competitive as most of you now know what you are capable of so it’s gonna be a tight one!
As always spread the word!!
