The Mud Run

On Wednesday our transition year class took on the mud run just outside of Letterkenny.

It was a tough, challenging day for all but an overall day of great crack! It took us around 2-3 hours for 5k of mud running. I was one of the slowest classmates in the class as i am not the fittest but gave it my all for most of the way. I was no stranger to cheating at some parts.

It was one of the best trips of the year for some of us. I would do it again with no doubt!

What A View

On Friday we went hill walking in Greencastle as part of our P.E module.

It was a ten Kilometre walk in total. The walk had a path so it was not that hard to climb but still took a lot of energy out of me. From the top of the hill you can see some of the islands of Scotland and part of mainland Scotland. The view was amazing.

The weather was ideal for the walk. It wasn’t sunny but it wasn’t raining. It was a bit mucky about halfway up and I managed to stand in it but it was all good. It was a brilliant day out and would do the walk again!

Sky sportsĀ 

On Thurseday Sky Sports came to our school. The man who came was Christy Toye, a Donegal Gaelic player.

Christy Toye is a Donegal player. He was part of the 2012 All Ireland winning team under Jim McGuinness. We began the day learning about how Christy got into Gaelic and how he became a professional player. We also did activities to improve our teamwork abilities. 

Later on in the day we went into the hall for more sport activities. It was really good and it was brilliant learning off Christy Toye.
