With the season over for many of our athletes we still had a few out there racing.
Well done to Paul Clancy who took on the Ironman distance last weekend in Challenge Almere. Paul has an extremely busy lifestyle running his own business and balancing family life with training. He smashed his pb coming in 11hrs 25mins and taking 42mins off his last IM distance race. What’s more impressive with the result is Paul had little or no running several weeks before the race due to an old injury raising its head again. Well done Paul.
Last weekend also seen coach Fran dust off his gear in Ruegen IM 70.3, posting a 5hr 7mins, with a poor swim but solid enough bike in 2:28 and a 1:37 run off it.
Today we had two of our athletes running the Dublin Half Marathon. Both athletes posted a 4min and 6min pb respectively. Peter ran a very fast 1:20 and is in great shape heading to Frankfurt Marathon in October. Jonathan ran a big pb running a 1:29 and is starting to come into great form for the New York Marathon.
Well done to our athletes, once again it shows that with the right training approach, guidance and a solid work ethic from the athletes that great results can be achieved.
