TRAINING SESSIONS

Monday and Wednesday – Open Water Swims (Summer Season only)

6.30pm  at the Slipway at Twomilegate – Boru members meet up for a sociable open water swim. This can be short and sweet around the buoys or off to yonder shore. Wetsuit is optional (but preferable) and a bright coloured hat is necessary.

The aim is to encourage swimming in company rather than solo and to enjoy the distance that open water swimming can allow. It may also include a run or bike brick session – keep an eye on the Member Chat page for updates

Wednesday – Pure Turbo (Autumn/Winter/Spring Season only)

8pm sharp AnnaCarriga Pavillion led by our worthy Cycling Coordinator Colin Byrne and Paul Dorrell. Sessions are designed to improve cycling fitness by working on Anaerobic threshold and generally putting some cycling hairs on your chest. As the evenings get brighter and drier we will be adding in brick sessions such as bike/run, swim/run and more!

For this session you need Road bike, turbo trainer, towel and your good legs.
