Autumn Training – Week 7

It is not very often that a club has a member that is featured on National television….but that was the situation this week, with Darren Dunne representing Ireland in the European Championships in Glasgow. Plenty of coverage and mention from Gavin and Bryan on commentary and no doubt this will be the first of many appearances!!!!

On the club side we have the matters of our end of year events while some continue the training for upcoming IronMan Barcelona and the Dublin city Marathon!

As is the normal course of events we will have a few events to mark the end of the season and our AGM.

Autumn Training – Week 1

The start of July and it means we are into the last block of training prior to the end of season events! We still have the club trip to Galway to come and after that we will see a change in emphasis in the sessions in preparation for those doing the Dublin City marathon later in the year and also some preparation for the end of year swim. On the racing scene this weekend was “Hell of the West” and TriAthlone and the club had a number of members in attendance on the day so well done to all who took part!!

Dromineer Series

The Dromineer series continues this Wednesday and this week is the final triathlon prior to the Galway trip.
As preparation for the Olympic distance in Galway we are going to do an increased distance event this coming Wednesday for anyone interested. We will be going a 1k – 32k – 8.5k triathlon and we will be starting with a staggered swim at 6:30pm in Dromineer. The swim will be staggered so that we will be all be on the bike at the same time and will cover the 32k together prior to the 8.5k run on the usual circuit.
For those looking to do the normal sprint distance, this will get underway at the usual 7pm!!!!
As ever if anyone is free and not intending to do the triathlon on Wednesday then it would be great if you could help out with the times and keeping an eye on the bikes in the transition area. Let us know if you are free on the Viber group during the week if you are free…thanks!!

Sheila Gregan, a kidney transplant recipient triathlete from Nenagh also won 2 Silver medals for the 5km race on Monday and in the 50m freestyle swimming event yesterday. 25 nations are competing in the weeklong games which come to a close this weekend.

Sheila Gregan’s 20km cycling event took place on the circuit between Cagliari and Quartu. Sheila won her Gold medal today in the cycling event in her 40-49 year age category said, “I am thrilled with the result. I was third overall in the race and Gold in my age category. It’s Day Three and I’ve finished all my events. It’s been a perfect three days for me. I’m finishing on a high. I do this because I can and that’s all thanks to my donor”.

The Irish team of 10 women and 13 men ranging in age from 31 to 80 and includes 20 athletes who underwent kidney, pancreas or liver transplants as well 3 dialysis patients. The team are competing amongst competitors from 25 nations which for the first time in the Championships history will include Russia and Kazakhstan.
