A great talk last night from Dr Karen Weekes - lots of practical advice on how to deal with the boredom, fatigue and pain of training and tips on motivation. Plenty of food for thought for us - I'm sure everyone came away with something they can apply to their training and racing.

A follow-on session around goal-setting is being planned for GCH members in late March/early April. Watch this space.

Heatmap - where people run in Galway City

Many runners log their miles using a GPS-enabled watch. The map below shows the areas in Galway that have been most logged for running. Dark blue means it's a route used a lot, and red used even more. Cappagh Rd (Parkrun), The Prom, Dangan and the racecourse are all heavily logged. A similar view is available for biking routes, or biking and running combined:
