Day trip to the Blarney Castle
After yesterdays tough workout, the boys earned a well deserved recovery day, which was a short run on a field at the local athletic club, followed by some quick strides and core/ band work. From there, everyone was off to the Blarney Castle! The team scaled the spiraling staircase to the top of the castle, where we all hung upside down over the edge of the castle to kiss the Blarney Stone (we all have good luck now). We walked through the fern gardens, the poison gardens (where they kept many dangerous plants), and the caves under the castle. Once we got back to Cork, both teams held team meetings to discuss their goals for the upcoming season. We will depart for Galway after the run tomorrow morning.
