Juvenile Cross Country (Saturday Group)
Our Saturday cross country group had their final training session before summer break on Saturday 3rd June. They ran 3k in intervals in the hot weather conditions, had a plank competition and found some interesting ways to complete strength and conditioning training. Well done all and huge thanks to the coaches who give up their Saturday afternoons to train this group. The coaches hope to organise some fun mixed sessions and challenges over the summer so keep an eye on WhatsApp for further info...Interval Training

TRACK AND FIELD
Report by Enda Gavigan
All Ireland Schools and Dublin Champions for LSA.
LSA Track & Field athletes had another very productive week with Championship medals at All Ireland and Dublin level.
Dublin Graded 4 returned to the new UCD Belfield track on a hot Saturday afternoon where Anthony Sharkey showed his class again, being crowned Dublin Champion in the gruelling 10,000m in a very impressive 34:55.41. Michelle Branigan ran her first 1500m in a time of 5:51.55 and continues to add to her points tally in the Grand Prix competition, currently running third with 284 points. Meanwhile, sister Alison Branigan makes a welcome return to competition, opening her account in the 400m with a time of 1:14. Good news also for Eabha O’Farrell whose recent good showing at 400m sees her promoted to Grade B for the rest of the series.
Also on Saturday, Eabha O’Farrell and Anna Gavigan travelled to Tullamore to represent Loreto Balbriggan a the prestigious All Ireland Schools finals.
It was disappointment for Eabha in Inter Hammer where a couple of fouls took her out of the final reckoning but a super achievement for her to make it this far.
Anna taking Gold in Senior Discus with another consistent series of big throws and a best of 46.23m to retain her National Title and the Ned and Mary O’Brien Discus award.
Congratulations to all.
We turn our attention next weekend back to the Dublin Juvenile Championships where Éabha takes on the U17 Hammer and 400m and Michelle the 1500, 400 and Javelin so stay tuned for our next update.
