Training Updates

Hi all,

With the clocks due to go forward next weekend, our training arrangements will also change with the longer evenings.

From Monday, March 30th, we will move our speed training from Midleton College Hockey pitch to Midleton College Cricket field.  This proved a great success last year, with a large open space to accommodate the large participation at speed training on Monday nights.  Training on the grass is highly recommended both in reducing injury risk, and improving speed (you're working harder on the grass so it will feel easier when you run on the road).  The time will remain at 6pm to 7pm, and we are delighted that coach Donie Walshe will continue with us for this session.  For new members (or anyone who didn't make it last year), Midleton College Cricket field is behind Midleton Hospital.  There is plenty of parking at the hospital side of Supervalu, and the field is walking distance from there.  We would encourage ALL members of all levels of ability to avail of this session.  It proved very popular last year, and with so much space available, you can very comfortably jog or run at your own pace if you don't feel like doing the set speed session on any night.

From Wednesday, April 1st, the indoor training sessions at both 6pm and 7pm will move to an outdoor run, starting with a warm-up with stretches with coach Edmond O'Sullivan at 6:30pm in the carpark of the Midleton Community Centre.  As the evening races take-off, we will review this session depending on demand, and I will notify you of any changes.

Any queries, please let me know! Anna
