Talk by Trevor Woods of UCC on ‘Training for Running’


On Wednesday the 7th of October, almost 40 club members attended a talk titled ‘Training for Running’ which was presented by Trevor Woods who is the Exercise Physiologist with the UCC Department of Sport and Physical Activity, and also one of Ireland’s leading Tri-Athletes.

The topics covered on the evening were as follows………physiological traits and determinants, blood lactate levels, oxygen requirements, running form and efficiency, endurance, intensity of training, strength training, training plan overview, periodisation of training, running programmes and injury prevention. This was followed by an interesting Q&A session which covered even more material.

Thanks to Joe Roche for organising what was an informative evening for Eagle AC club members. Plans are in the pipeline for another talk over the Winter months.
