Twenty three of the Ireland’s top Combined Eventers met for their first winter squad session in Tullamore Harriers on Sunday the 14th. The day started with a thorough preparation session delivered by Rosemary Daniel. Athletes then rotated across four events including shot, hurdles, high and long jump. During lunch, athletes were given details of their competition bursary for 2013 and a schedule of multi events championships in the UK, Scotland and Belgium.
A javelin workshop started the afternoon session. The final hour was dedicated to a strength and conditioning forum with the focus on organising and planning delivered by Garry Power. Throughout the sessions discussions were had with athletes and coaches about the organisation of training programmes. Excellent advice was given from a multi-event perspective by Brid Golden and Garry Power.
Thanks to Alan Golden and Rosemary Daniel for their energy and expertise during the day. The next national squad day for the National CE Squad is on Sunday November 11th at 1pm in Santry. Please assemble at 12.30pm to be ready for warm up at 12.45pm.
