I hope you are all coping in the heat a little better than I am!! OK, ok, so I'm a soft Pom - we all know that!! ;-)
Anyway, just a couple of notes for this week:
- Our 9.30am Time-4-Me session this Friday will be held down at Cottesloe Beach, meeting in front of the pylon on the grass bank underneath the Indianna Tea Rooms. We will be swimming between the groyne and the pylon and will be an excellent chance to practice some openwater swim skills, especially for those new to openwater swimming. Between now and the end of March, there will be 3 occasions when we have to do this (Fri 6th Feb; Wed 25th Feb; Fri 3rd April), owing to a busy schedule of carnival bookings at the Claremont Pool during this period. Please also note that there will be several instances when we have to relocate to the 25m pool for our 9.30am sessions, but we will try to keep the disruption to an absolute minimum where possible. For those who were with us last year, you'll remember this change of scenery was actually a lot of good fun!
- Please, please, please ensure that you only attend the swim squad session that you have nominated with us, especially the 5.30am and 6.30am crew. I'm sorry to be a nag, but we had a very busy 5.30am session today due to 5 people from the 6.30am session turning up early. It's really, really great that we have so much consistency in attendance at the moment, but please help us to help you guys by attending your nominated session. Thanks in advance!
- On Saturday morning the Half Ironman crew will do this suggested ride: http://www.mapmyride.com/ride/australia/perth/41335500 meeting at the Bell Tower at 6.30am.
- Also on Saturday is the annual Cottesloe to Swanbourne Classic Swim (2.2km) which all Rottnest Swimmers are advised to do. Start is 8.00am and you can register online at www.swannysurfclub.org.au The SOLO and DUO swimmers will then have the option of swimming back to Cottesloe Beach to round off a good morning of swimming.
Have a good week and stay cool!
