I'm loving the sunshine this week - top stuff - finally!!
This is just a quick "final call" for any teams keen on entering next Sunday (18th October) 10km Relay Challenge at Claremont Pool. Swimmers can compete in teams of 4 to 8 and can rotate as often or as little as they like (in multiples of 100m) with not every swimmer in the team needing to cover as much distance as the others. It is designed to be a fun, social event for a range of abilities. We have a couple of solo swimmers whom have entered the event and there are still places available in this discipline as well.
Cost = $150 for teams inc. a post-race BBQ and $25 for solo swimmers. Registration will be from 9.30am with the start at 10.00am. I do hope you can make it. Anyone keen on joining a "Coaches Team" with myself and Adam, please let me know (you don't need to be a coach!!). Entries can be made at http://www.theteamcore.com/relay.html Closing date is Wednesday 14th October at 5pm.
Also, this was emailed to me by Paul Downie - well worth a listen for those of you into your ocean swimming this season:
Finally, I am still working hard on trying to get out some training templates for those of you doing the Rottnest DUO and SOLO swims including guidelines on progressive distances etc and also for those of you new to triathlon wondering how best to structure your week. We hope to return to some more structured bike and run sessions also over the next couple of weeks now that the weather is getting better and now that we've successfully run our Coaches Training Day. Thanks for your patience during this busy planning period!
