Track Session Wednesday 26th April

So with the season officially kicked off after Joey Hannon at the weekend we will hopefully keep our numbers at the track on the upward trend. Increase in repetition distance again this this week but with a minor mix of distances. The session will start with a tempo 800m and then continue with 2 x […]

Track Session Wednesday April 19th

Another big group out last week, with the weather looking good for the rest of this week we should have good numbers again tomorrow night. The session will step up in distance again to 1000m. Usual format for the evening with a warm up, dynamic stretch, strides and main set. As usual the session starts […]

Track Session Wednesday April 12th

It was great to see such a big crowd out last week out for our first track session last week. Discipline was great with several groups formed running very even paced over the set of 400s. This week we are moving up in distance to 800m with a session of 5 x 800m. Meet at […]

First Track Session of the Season Wednesday April 5th 7:00pm

Back to the track for the next few months, until the end of August. The track in question is the UCC (Sonia O’Sullivan) Track at the University Sports Grounds on the Mardyke. Note the change of time from our road runs, we have the track booked from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. We will start with a […]

Wednesday Run 29th March

As mentioned last week for the last run before we hit the track next week we are going to head out to the Blarney Running Trail. A great opportunity to get off the road and run on a different surface. It looks like the weather might be a bit wet so don’t take your best […]

Wednesday Run 22nd March (with “End of the Road” get together)

“End of the Road”, our last evening on the road for this season. We started out last October and have put in some where in the region of 20 sessions on the 1km loop in the Business Park on the Model Farm road. From April 5th we move to the UCC track from then to […]

Wednesday Run March 15th

Just a few more runs left on the road before we head for the track (first session April 5th). So blocks of 6 minutes for this week from a single six minute block down to 6 x 1 minute. If anyone is still suffering the after effects of Ballycotton, take it a bit easy. Weather […]

Wednesday Run March 8th

Looks like the weather may not be too bad tomorrow night, low probability of rain and fairly mild. Session is absolutely straight forward, just 5 minute repeats. Anyone doing Ballycotton on Sunday should consider reducing the number of repeats, plenty of recovery time but no point in overdoing it especially if you are looking for […]

Wednesday Run March 1st

The weather looks like it might be a little dodgy tomorrow evening so wrap up well for the possible worst. Very straightforward session with longer times at tempo and reduced recovery. The last 6 minute block should be done at a higher pace, getting on for hard rather than tempo. As a guide the tempo […]

Wednesday Run February 22nd

Going to push the minutes at tempo up just a little. The weather looks a little iffy for tomorrow night but not too bad, so hopefully our numbers will hold up. Meet at the usual time of 6:30pm at the car park at the City end of the Straight Road. As usual beginners more than […]
