We have been monitoring the advice of the health authorities, the Government and Sport Ireland with respect to COVID-19. We have taken the decision to err on the side of caution insofar as training arrangements are concerned.
Therefore, we confirm that all Club training sessions (Senior and Junior) will be suspended until further notice.
Winter Training Schedule
- All times are provisional and subject to weather! They will be confirmed by text each week.
- Helmets are mandatory for all outdoor bike sessions. Check your wheels and brakes before leaving home!
- Wetsuits & floats are mandatory for open water swim sessions.
Turbos/Strength & Conditioning – Monday & Wednesday
The Monday and Wednesday session in the club room will alternate between Strength & Conditioning and Turbo.
Strength & Conditioning will be a great way to get you all up and running with the wide range of equipment we have available to us in the club rooms.
Members need to have completed the gym induction in order to take part in strength & conditioning, please get in touch if you do not have this done so we can arrange an induction for you.
For bike sessions, members who have their own turbos should bring them as there are a limited amount of turbo’s available. We will be including a 15 minute stretching session after each turbo also.
Both sessions will start promptly at 7pm. Arrive at 6:50 pm at the latest to leave enough time to get signed in and set up and ready for the 7pm start.
Pool Swimming – Monday & Wednesday
On Monday and Wednesdays we have coached swim sessions at 9pm in Roscommon pool. Monday’s session is for beginners, Wednesday for more advanced swimmers and those looking to improve . Please be signed in and in the water by 9pm sharp. Swim sessions are €6 per person per week.
There will be an opportunity for a coached swim technique session with Elaine Lally at 8pm before pool sessions start. Places are limited to 10 per session so please let me know if you are interested in attending.

How much training should I do?
This really depends on the individual, including your level of fitness across each of the three disciplines. Some people are good in one or two disciplines but perhaps not all three. It also depends on your objectives for the year. Have you a particular race or distance in mind? Do you want to be competitive or simply be able to finish the race?
We recommend that you give yourself something to aim for by entering a Triathlon some months ahead. Choose a race you think you can finish and prepare adequately. By race day you should be able to go the full distance of each event in training.
LTC has a proud tradition of supporting new Members who have never completed a Triathlon to actually doing so. The Club’s zero2tri programme promises to get you to your first triathlon – Two Provinces Triathlon in July 2019.
