This week we will be repeating a session from a couple of months ago that was inspired by Will Clarke.  The aim is to continue working on our current pre-season focus of swimming faster and more efficiently to allow us to build and maintain swimming speed for longer sets.  You can re-read my previous post on this session for a reminder of some things to think about.

If you haven’t seen it already I would recommend Chrissie Wellington’s article about swimming faster in this week’s 220 Magazine, which you can see here.  I think all of her tips are good, especially for the less-experienced swimmers, and particularly like her advice about trying to stay relaxed and work on feel rather than trying to fight the water.

On April 26th and May 3rd the Juniors will not be using the pool from 9:15 to 10:00 so we have a great opportunity to get some more pool time for a couple of longer sessions.  For those weeks I will set two longer sessions, one from 7 to 8:30 and the other from 8:30 to 10, to give us all chance to get a bit of extra quality swimming in ready for the start of the main competition season.

See you Saturday!
