With less than 3 weeks left in the year many people will be sitting back and taking stock of the year. Did they complete the challenges they set themselves, can they hit their target in the next couple of weeks? They might have a list of short, medium or long term goals drawn up for […]
Just when I was getting used to my training programme it was time to start some speed work.
Last nights session involved a 15 minute jog to the track, 5 x 5 minute plus 1 minute active recovery followed by 15 minute jog home.
It was good to see so many people using the track considering the […]

The challenge involves cycling from Salthill to Croagh Patrick via […]
