Training

The club organises several training sessions during a typical week for members.

CIT Track…On Tuesday and Thursday evenings between 7pm and 8pm, we organise interval sessions at the CIT track in Bishopstown. The Tuesday session is currently the most popular and it is structured as follows…
a) 6:30-6:55pm…Warm up by doing several slow laps of the track or by running on the roads and tracks nearby.
b) 6:55pm…Dynamic warm up routine which lasts about 10 minutes
c) 7:05pm…Groups then do various interval sessions which are advertised in advance to members by e-mail.
d) 7:40-8pm…Warm down

Weekends…During the weekends,  we usually organise multiple training runs for members.  On Saturday mornings, we usually have a tempo training session while on both Saturdays and Sundays, we have members leading runs on roads and trails near Cork City which vary from 8 to 20 miles in length. All members are notified in advance of the proposed runs at the weekend by e-mail.

On average, the club organises somewhere in the region of 200 to 250 training runs per annum. Example.
