I will be away for the next two Saturdays so I have left sessions in the Tri Club box.  Chrissie and Simon will be coaching when they can but it is unlikely to be for all four sessions so if you are the first one on pool side please put out the sessions for everyone.

We are starting to do some more faster-paced swims as we build up towards the start of the season.  More faster-paced swims also means there will be more slower paced swims, too, especially when doing progressive sets.  Even if the slower-paced swims do not include drills please do use them to focus on technique and whatever aspect you think needs the most work.  To help you think about your technique please watch the excellent video by Bill Furniss below:

Bill Furniss is currently the Head Coach of UK Swimming and was also Rebecca Adlington’s coach so he knows a thing or two about front crawl!  The video is  really for coaching the basics of front crawl to age group swimmers but I think everyone with an interest in swimming fast, distance front crawl will find it very useful.  So this is your homework for while I am away!  It is nearly 40 minutes long, and not professionally filmed, but well worth watching so please do watch as much as you can.

See you in a couple of weeks,

Rob
