Thursday Night Training- 7:30

The 7:30 training session will go ahead tonight, again please bring spikes and runners in case we have to go on the road.

VO2 Testing

Philip Marron recently undertook a VO2 max test using a treadmill in Tallaght Sports Centre. The testing involved analysing his specific VO2 and determining at what heart rate his body crossed  the threshold of aerobic and anaerobic intensity. Once this was measured, Philip's training workout zones could be calculated much more accurately. The objective of all this is to fine tune his training to ensure he peaks for target competitions. Using a heart monitor will enable him to be certain he is training in the correct workout zone and not just be relying on how he "feels " on any given day. Well worth considering having this done irrespective of what standard you are competing at.

Update on Fones4Life club appeal

A big thank you to Martina Cahill who participated in our C25k programme early in 2014, for a massive donation of mobile phones to our fones4life club appeal. We now have a total of 190 mobiles donated - only 160 more needed to hit our target of 350. Well done to everyone who has contributed so far but we are sure there are loads more old phones out there so keep them rolling in over the Christmas and the New Year.
