Who has won our final week?

November 30, 2020

That is a wrap for our Pound the Pavements Club Challenge! Between you all, in the past five weeks without pools, you have cycled, walked, and run a phenomenal 96,000km!

With their third top spot, Carrick Dippers Swimming Club have won the final week, Asgard gaining yet another podium, and Shark Swimming Club securing their best finish yet in third - great timing gang!

A big well done to all clubs and their members who have taken part in our latest lockdown initiative. It's hopefully back to the water for most in December, but we still have plenty going on online, so keep an eye out on social media.

Online Workouts with Paul Talty & Beth Carson

Remember the last time pools were closed? Yeah, we'd tried to forget too, but anyhow, back then former international swimmer-turned coach, Beth Carson, and Swim Ireland's associate head of performance services (physical), Paul Talty, produced a serious range of online workout videos.

They both cater for a full range of abilities and fitness levels, and cover everything from strength and conditioning, to stability, stretches, and even what to do on the indoor cycling trainer.

Sport Northern Ireland's Ryan Keating also introduced us to the World's Greatest Stretch - no jokes! - and National Senior Team Head Coach, Ben Higson, was joined in our Swim Ireland does Off The Couch series by Olympic diver Ollie Dingley, colleague Clare Cryan, and Beth Carson (again!).

No excuses. Get going. Be active. Keep pool-ready!
