After a long brief chat about the plans for the next 10 weeks of A-group spins we headed off towards the unexplored hills of North county Longford. After Granard we headed to Ballinalee and then headed towards Cairn Hill.
After a photo shoot on the top, we descended the hill and passed the local landmark "Kiernan’s Forge" on the run into Longford. The group stuck to the training plan and completed numerous structured efforts and the spin totalled 105km and I don't think anyone will have a problem sleeping tonight!
