dinner options — to follow — this is an important part of a training weekend as you ge to chat to the senor training athletes and get first hand coaching advice from STL and others who are taking part
Monday : we plan to join in on the big bay swim which we have done for the last 3 years — info to follow on this — Killian from westclare Tri/Limerick Tri and Murphy Blacks restaurant along with LimerickTri club are organizing the bay swim this year. swim Irl and tri irl licences and pre-registration is required along with a 2euro donation to local sub aqua club who are providing cover. A great effort made by all last year so please support again this year
STL – will lead the beginners group and stay with the slower swimmers
Depending on tides we will aim to ride 2 loops of the bike course before or after the bay swim, the bike course is the key to hell of the west, the dead roads can make or break riders and we need to focus on getting all levels of athletes to treat this right. you won’t win on the bike but you will kill your bike if not done right.
kilkee transition is always laid out exceptionally well by all the gang at Limerick Tri Club — experts at race organization — this is another area where we will aim to make sure come race day your on fire for saving time and getting yourself out on the course quick.
The run course is where tears or smiles can arrive. we will show you all the running techniques and pacing to get your run times ( yes folks this does mean hill reps and or as we like to call them secret speed sessions)
