XC Squad day no. 2 plus round up

A second cross country club squad day took place in the rain this morning in Santry Demsene. It was another very well attended event with some 40 athletes training in non stop rain, real cross country weather. The men completed a pyramid session on the country and the women a session of 1k’s on the paths with both senior squads being joined by several of the club’s crop of juniors. Needless to say as the cool down started the rain stopped and out came the sun! Following the session a hot shower, lunch and a chat was the order of the day. Next up it’s the Dublin Cross Country at City West on Sunday the 6th with the Nationals then on November 20th. Teams for Dublin will be announced early next week.

Round up, obviously with the Dublin Marathon it’s sparse! Friday the 28th a top class run by Sean Kay for Yale 7th in the Heptagonal Cross Country Championships in New York in 24.19, for 5 miles. Missed last weekend was Steve Flanaghan’s 54th place in 26.47 over 8k cross country in Boston.
