Track Session Wednesday August 9th

Long intervals tonight, 1200s, hard but well worth doing! The bulk of the group should be well recovered if they did “Kingdom” or Loughrea at the weekend. Anyone doing Caroline Kearney this coming weekend needs to trim the session down a bit so as not to be over cooked for Saturday. Meet at the usual […]

Track Session Wednesday July 26th

What seems like the favourite session this week 10 x 400m with 200m easy jog recovery. This is about the 4th rotation to 400s since we began in April. Hopefully people are noting their repetition times and noticing some improvement as we go through the season. As usual look for even pace across the session, […]

Track Session Wednesday 19th July

A little bit different again this week with a session of 500s. The pace should be your 5km road race pace. Should be easy enough to do the sums on this one. As usual personal responsibility for people to balance their race recovery and race preparation. The full session is 10 x 500m, anyone racing […]

Track Session Wednesday July 12th

A kilometer session this week, 4 x 1km, these should be run at your straight 5km pace (5km as a road race not the 5km at the end of a tri). The eagle eyed may notice that the recovery is not quite as long as previous sessions. Usual format for the session, easy warm up […]

Track Session Wednesday July 5th

Just to get away from the rotation of 400s/800s/1600s we will have a mixed distance session this week, for a bit of variety. A session of (200m, 400m & 800m) x 3

Last week’s session worked really in terms of people getting into groups and working well together, this might be a little more difficult […]

Wednesday Track Session 28th June

From conversations last week, looks like everyone will love this week, it’s back to 800s. Fairly straight forward session, main set is 5 x 800m with 400m recovery between the 8s. As usual individuals have to assess their recovery if racing last weekend at HotW or race preparation if doing Jailbreak this coming weekend. Meet […]

Track Session Wednesday 21st June

Summer Solstice Session at the track tomorrow evening. So for any of you who need to get a way early to light bonfires on the local hill tops, reducing slightly the volume of the session. There is always a “but” with a session like this and there is with this one, looking for an increase […]

Track Session Wednesday June14th

Back to kilometers again this week, 5 x 1000m, with 600m recovery jog. As usual at this time of year members have to balance race recovery with race preparation. Anyone who did Schull on Saturday should be well recovered, anyone racing this coming weekend should probably reduce the volume from 5k to maybe 4 x […]

Track Session Wednesday 31st May

Mixed session this week, mainly 400s with 2 x 800m to finish. One of the objects is to hold the 400m pace through to the 800s? As usual at this time of year people will have to balance recovery if they competed at Lough Cutra last weekend or race preparation if racing in Athy this […]
