Summer Training – Week 5

It is the end of April and with that the end of the time trial and run series so we hope that those who attended got some benefit from the short, sharp sessions. A new month and some new sessions will be introduced over the coming weeks as we prepare for the upcoming open water triathlon season the club trip to the Galway triathlon. This week with the bank holiday will be an easier week and we will again ramp it up from next week on!!

Great Limerick Run 2018

A number of club members made the short trip over to Limerick for the biggest local run event of the year. At the time of writing lads were still on the course with the majority of club members taking on the half-marathon distance….so well done to all!

 

 

Masters End of Season Gala

A reminder that the end of Masters training for the season is fast approaching and as is custom there will be an end of season gala at the final evening session on Wednesday 9th of May at 8pm.
As ever we would hope that this will get good support from the Tri club on the night and entries will be taken on the night so come down and join us.
The events are all 50m over the various strokes and as ever there will be the tri v masters gala relay!

New session – Rolling over Tuesday

The time trial series is over and so while we wait to get the official Dromineer series to get underway we are going to introduce a new session to the mix. Starting at 7pm from Nenagh Leisure centre we are going to trial a rolling over session that will roughly cover the Olympic distance cycle.

For the first 2 weeks there will be a warm-up to the motorway flyover and then we will roll over to Moneygall and back again to the flyover, and then cool-down back into town. In order for this session to go ahead we need to have adequate numbers to roll over so we are looking at minimum of 8 on the bikes. If we get the numbers we will continue the session for 4 weeks and gradually increase the distance covered, so if you are free then support this new club session!

Couch to try a tri

The 3 week introductory sessions for those undertaking the “try a tri” in June will again place over the month of May so if you know anyone who would be interested in attending the sessions then let them know.

And as ever if you are free for the run or bike sessions to lend a hand and offer support then the more the merrier!

Run Series – 4/4

The final week of this this years run series was yet again a bit on the cold and windy side but on the course the times were the hottest yet. The beat the clock format brought the best times of this years series with the majority of runners within 10 seconds of their predicted time and a number of runners very close to breaking the 20min barrier overall! The top of the leaderboard for the final week was Barry Creamer who was within 2 secs of the predicted time.

 

 

Name Dist Predict Actual Difference
Barry Creamer 5k 20:00 20:02 2
Brenda Ryan 3k 15:00 15:03 3

A big thanks to the Eagle who was on hand at the line to get the times on the night!

This was the last in the run series for this year so a big thanks to all who made the effort to attend over the 4 weeks.

Next week we have the end of year Masters gala in the leisure centre at 8pm so if you fancy a final sprint in the pool then come on down.

After that we will be making the journey back out to Dromineer for the start of the Dromineer series, so hopefully over the coming weeks we get a bit of hotter weather to get the lake into a swimming condition!!!

Time Trial Series – 4/4

The final round in this years TT league and we again had a blustery wind and wet conditions to deal with, but we still managed to get a couple of lads to finally go out on the big course…..although by the end probably would have been better on the 20k one!!

That was the last week of the time trial series and thanks to everyone who made the effort to get on the course over the 4 weeks.

Also, a big thanks to Johnny Meagher who has single handedly sorted out the rest of us with times for this years series.

Next up on the cycling front we are looking to arrange a group rolling over session to cover the Olympic distance cycle (40k)……we will give further info on this later in the week so keep an eye on the club bulletins for more!!!!

Summer Training – Week 4

It feels like they have only started but already the time trial and run series for this year are coming to an end. We hope that those who made the effort to attend these sessions have benefited from the short, sharp intense work and hopefully it will stand as a good marker to progress made….while for those who did not come out as yet, well there is one more week to get out and set a PB on the bike and run courses!

Joey Hannon 2018

A number of club members made the short trip over to Limerick for the ever popular and multi-distance Joey Hannon Triathlon. Well done to all members who took part! Darren Dunne (2.00), Eoin Woolley (2.17), Seamus Duggan (2.31), Ramon Rodriguez (2.49) , Ciara Cairns (2.49).

Ballinree 5k 2018

The weather was again good for the annual Ballinree 5k and so with that a good turn out from the club. The club had all of the first three in the male event with Gary Scully taking the honours followed closely by David Sheahan and Andrew McLoughlin, while Charlotte Jones won the female event on the day so good results for the club all round. Also taking part were Paul Scully, Eddie Tucker, John Meagher, John Manley, Mike O’Keeffe. A good feed afterwards and all left happy!
