I would like to encourage all athletes from the Athletics Association Ireland and northern Ireland athletics to get there runners on and get training as it’s only 10 weeks until the full track programme takes off. Only 10 weeks virtually to get some good foundation training, hills and start technically working on all those weak spots you may have developed over the indoor or winter months. Athletics Ireland results need to improve to obtain more medals internationally to go along with their recent good results and to keep on improving. We the athletes need to work together with the athletics association of Ireland to get the dates of all races including leagues to support them in their events, which can help you the athlete gauge where you are in your programme and where you need to be in terms of achieving your goals.
Athletics Northern Ireland even offer mid week races often on a Wednesday or Thursday evening if week end don’t suit the working athlete; so don’t forget to contact AAI athletics Ireland and running Northern Ireland for both competition schedules before the season is out. Running Northern Ireland also have links to fell running clubs and details of races for those interested in longer, harder events. Running in Ireland with the new spell of good weather is an opportunity not to be missed as you have great choices with all the parks having their grass cut and forests like the one in Rostrevor.
Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog. I will try and keep you up to date on all my future Events, plus results from students competitions and training progress.
