It’s time for the Christmas Swim again.  Where has this year gone!?  As in previous years we will be doing two equal sessions to ensure everyone can do the same set.  So the 7am session will finish at 8:05am and the next session will start at 8:05am and finish at 9:10am.

The Christmas Swim this year is built on that wonderful trio of technique, challenge and fun.  We will be doing a long block of 100s, off a fairly short turnaround time, to make it a challenge.  The technique comes from what I want you all to focus on during the first and second 100 of each block of 3.  All the 100s are full stroke front crawl but I would like you to think about having an excellent EVF on the first 100 in each block and a good core-driven rotation and push in the second 100 of each block.

The fun part comes from every third 100 where you will get a draw a lucky dip variation from a swimming hat in your lane and do what it says.  It may also vary your recovery time so adding to the challenge element of the session as well!  Please let your fellow swimmers know what the lucky dip element is of each 100 by passing it down the line through the lane as the short turnarounds mean there won’t be time to have a chat or add any extra rest if you want to finish the session.  Please also make sure you start promptly.

See you Saturday!
