Many thanks to our friends in the Midland Triathlon Club for their very kind invite to attend their winter training seminar last Friday evening. This very well attended workshop took place in Bloomfield House Hotel and it was great to see several Lakeside Wheelers members listening intently. 

The guest speakers on the night were Mark McCabe and Kieran Nolan from Sports Med Ireland, both of whom are physiotherapists, Strength and Conditioning coaches and elite athletes in Triathlon and GAA respectively.
