It has been two weeks now since we ended our fun run series with a 10km. The original idea was – the road to breaking 40min barrier. A beautiful quest for all and a great stepping stone to for all. We would normally have the GoTri – Shannon Running series in August of each year to keep everyone tipping along but due to Covid -19 We as a club felt it was not appropriate to run the series in 2020 but we plan to bring it back in 2021.
The fun training series is all about – you racing you – each week seeing you improve and with that in mind our training series was aimed at building people up for the 10km.
We were very lucky to have Brian the Speedy Sheedy fella take on the pacing role, he ply’s his running trade for Ennis Track but we claim him as ours 🙂
We had a few members who were chasing personal bests, athletes chasing the sub 20 min 5km and members looking to just have a blast out.
The training loop we use is 2.2km around , flat as the proverbial pancake with the biggest mountain being a speed bump it allows you to just focus on turning over a good cadence and beating the clock.
The focus was to help you stay motivated during this pandemic & Hopefully we will try to organize another few 5kms for September to help you keep ticking over.
A big well done and thank you to all the GoTri Flyers who took on the training fun run sessions. Its great to see you all doing well, staying fit and healthy in these times
From all the committee at GoTri – Stay safe
We will post info and links to the new 5km fun training series within the week
