Countdown to the Ulster Schools Aquathon is on, so with that in mind we are going to change this Sundays training programme a little and focus on aquathon swim, transition and run.  So Swim as usual first then aquathon transitioning skills & techniques, and finishing off with a running sessions.

Also keep in you diary the 13th Dec for our end of season "party" not sure if we can call it a party but you know what we mean :-)

The plan for the 13th is Fun in the Pool, then 30 mins of FUN in the main hall or outside throwing snowballs, then in for a 30 / 45 Min nutrition & hydration session i,e. tea & cakes for Adults & juice snacks for juniors :-)


Well Done Everyone Yesterday & Welcoming Winter Cycle

Image
Afternoon,

Well done everyone yesterday it was a beautiful morning and we had loads of kids & slightly older kids out with us on our cycle around the wildlife preserve in Inch.

Thank you to all the parents who helped out yesterday without your help it simply wouldn't have been able to get the kids around safely. we did warn you all to bring a change of clothes as that bumpy mucky road can be "fun" to navigate.

From the feedback we will for sure be back at this locations again soon.

We mentioned yesterday the "Welcoming Winter Cycle" that the Derry and Strabane Council are running its on this Saturday 28th Nov with start times each half hour from 5pm. More details can be found here http://www.sustrans.org.uk/events/sound-light-rides-derrylondonderry

See you all 9am on Sunday in the pool.

Keep in your Diary the 13th December for this years Christmas Party..

Hello All,

Back to normal this week, well almost normal. Firstly thank you to Caroline Mc Menamin who stepped in last Sunday morning to help Tommy with the running drills session, at last minute we switched to indoors due the the weather and of course the female try-a-tri event that was taking place. we didnt want anyone trampled on :-)
This week there will be NO SWIM SESSION, BIKE ONLY and a NEW COURSE. We will use the cycle loop around inch and the farland bank. This is a closed path route and a very flat safe course, for the older secondary school children we have a little "challenge" for them so make sure you bring a clean set of clothes to go home in when the sessions is over just in case.
Directions to the start car park are easy. drive from Derry in the direction of Buncrana, just as you are entering Burnfoot and directly after E&I engineering take a left turn in the direction of Burt (go across the slab road) and continue on this road for approx 2.5 miles. the ro…

Ok kids & slightly older kids,

This week the ladies try-a-tri is on and it starts in the complex at 9am. The ladies have the pool so we will do just a run session. The run session will start at 9.15am and finish up by 9.45am, for those of you who have mums, sisters, aunties, maybe even grandmothers taking part in the try a tri we will have you back at the triathlon finish line by 10am well ahead of the 1st finishers.

The run session will take place on the track to go straight to the track where Tommy & Caroline will be waiting for you.

Remember once your session is over come up to the try a tri finish line and cheer on everyone finishing.

See you all Sunday morning :-) 9.15 @ the track.
