The 3rd and 4th weeks of any training plan can be the most challenging and when injuries or illness often happen. You may find the initial enthusiasm is wearing off or you may have found the first two weeks easy and be tempted to increase your training rapidly. Now is the time to be patient and keep making incremental increases to the volume and/or pace of your training. It’s a fantastic time of year for training. If you are busy the bright early mornings and evenings provide extra opportunities to get your training done in daylight.

Craughwell AC hosted last nights second race in the Galway Renault 5k Series this evening 3rd May 2016. Always a contender for a PB course with a FAST start this year saw a huge number of runners come from far and wide to take on the second leg of the series.

The weather was a lot better than last week, with the sun shining amongst some intermittent clouds and aside from the little wind there was no reason for complaints!!!
