Parkour Trip to Glendalough
BEING new to parkour, I wasn’t exactly sure what it involved. I think my impressions were of people doing backflips off walls. The first training session put me at ease. Everything is at your own pace and you only attempt what you feel comfortable doing. I had my name down to go on the upcoming trip to Glendalough by the end of that first training.
Eight of us went to Glendalough on the Friday evening. We stayed the weekend in a hostel with about a hundred others from the OPC and the International Society. We had a great laugh Friday and Saturday night at the hostel and the local pub. We did a lot of Methode Naturelle all day Saturday – climbing up the hills of boulders and jumping to cross the waterfall. We could have taken the path I suppose, but that’s no fun! I got to know the members of parkour that I didn’t really know before the trip and met some other great people that were on the trip too.
The club in general is great craic and I’ve recommended parkour to my friends – think I’ve persuaded a couple too! Really looking forward to the trip to Dublin this weekend, should be brilliant!
