GoTri a Tri cancelled

Due to unforeseen circumstances the event had to be cancelled. Its with deep regret that we inform you of this but we would like to say a big thank you to the Tri a Tri committee who put a huge amount of time into the event and thank you to the Shannon swimming pool management and staff for all their continued support.

We have a lot to look forward to in the coming years, we think we have a great format for next year with the addition of a sprint triathlon and hosting a tri a tri, so here is advanced warning – save the May bank holiday Monday for your GoTri Triathlon !!


Tuesday night training league about to start

Oh how this reporter can’t wait for the start of the Tuesday night race training league with Club Rothaiochta and GoTri. There has been a huge amount of work put in by the committee (training night committee) for this year’s league and we must say a big thank you to the guys and girls dealing with it. There had to be changes and we hope that they bear fruition for all taking part from a rider satisfaction point and a safety point of view.

There are a very very very very very limited number of places left for the league nights available through clubify. Check out the Club Rothaiochta facebook page for entry details

The Time trial league

Its funny how things go, I was a panicking mess about the league a few weeks ago, numbers very low and the interest just not coming from within the club, well out comes Mr, Sunshine and insert some vitamin D and some great prizes and away we go !!

It continues this week EDDY MERCKX night 1

Mike Storan blitzed the individual race night for the last 2 weeks but we saw impressive times from almost all riders taking part. The tandem riders really do make you work for your pb and Dermots coached riders are heckling pbs at their team-mates …….. we won’t name names. ( STL  is enjoying the coaching battle ) AS always a very big thank you to our marshals on the night and we look forward to welcoming you all to the Wells Church again this week for week 5 of 8 weeks.

Kilkee workout number 1 & workout 2 & workout 3

Anyone that knows me knows I love a few hills; I love to design and prepare for a race in similar conditions. Breaking down the event in smaller chunks to prepare for the bigger picture, Kilkee Hell of the West on June 30th

For the Shannon Heads I highly recommend the Tullyglass mile loop – Starting at Doc Linanes old surgery and doing the loop up and over and around to the starting point again

Week 1 – Do this loop 6 times trying to hold your racing heart rate – or if your not sure on that 85-88% – just below threshold hr of 88-92.

The goal for the 6 miles is to stay within that heart rate percentage while going up and while going down hill

Week 2 – Do the 2 x 3miles at goal 10km pace off the bike for example 15kph (40min 10km pace) 3mins recovery between effort –

The goal is to maintain the pace – don’t fluctuate – work on your breathing and your efforts while going uphill and going downhill, learn to relax and to pace

Compare and contrast your workout 1 with your workout 2

Week 3—do 6 x 1mile at 88-92% hr and compare with week 2 rest 90seconds after each

Hr rules the speed this week so train smart and take on the session happy – your building


  • Key points – your warm up – at least 15mins with active mobility
  • Do strides on a gentle slope to get ready for the hills
  • Bring a bottle of drink and put it somewhere no doggy can piss on it !
  • Bring a friend – bring a motivator
  • Don’t do this session on the back of another hard day and do do another hard day after it
  • Week 4 = 15mins @80% 15mins tempo pace/hr

These are suggested workouts, make sure you have the backup work done before attempting these
