A nice day out at the beach

To break up the normal routine, coach Matt Lockett asked a bunch of us would we like to go to the beach! We were surprised, Matt is noted for pushing his athletes through their paces, not for bringing them to nice relaxing places.

True to form, Matt had found some nice sand dunes for us to do an interval session on. A good group of us headed down to Bishops Quarter beach just past Kinvara. It was Saint Patricks Morning, wet and windy but we all had a ball, all be it an intense, feel like you're going to collapse ball.

Some of the group continued on surfing afterwards while the rest of us all stopped off for a well earned lunch.
