Night Swim Proposed Date Friday September 30th

Night_swim_2015The proposed date for our now annual swim around Sandycove is Friday 30th September.  The tentative plan is to meet at about 7:15-7:30 to be in the water and swimming at 7:45pm.  Sunset is 7:13pm and High Water is 6:00pm.  These plans are as mentioned tentative and more details and or changes will be posted later.  This has been a very popular event and if the conditions are right it can be magical.  Just to note it is not a time “to see if I can swim around”  anyone committing to the swim should have experience in swimming round the island in daylight.  There will be more safety notes with later posts.  So if you interested mark the date and look for future posts.

Open Water Swim Thursday Evening 7:30pm at the Dock Beach

Track Session Wednesday 31st August

Athletics Track_UCCOfficially the last track session of the season, there will possibly be at least one more to compensate for the missing week due to the hockey internationals.  In deference to those doing the Lost Sheep this weekend the session will be 400s.  Any competing should be conscious of tapering and just do a very light workout.  The full session will be 12 x 400m with 75s recovery between each.   If there are further sessions they will be posted on the web page and FB.
