Video Filming Project & This Weekend
Just a quick thank you to all of those of you who volunteered your time on Sunday for some filming in Challenge Stadium's awesome outdoor 8 lane pool (above). This filming is part of a new project that we (Swim Smooth) are collating which will help swimmers and coaches around the world define and determine what they need to do to help correct their strokes and improve their efficiency. It's a super interesting project and we can't wait to share more details with you once all the filming has been completed.
We still have another round of filming to complete this Sunday (21/3) between 9am and 5pm. Please check your details against the list at:
...we have specifically highlighted the strokes of John Harris, Julie Ponthier and Jane Davis whom we'd very much like to film if you guys were able to attend at 2.30pm? No worries if not, but it'd be a great help for us if you'd be keen.
Every swimmer will receive an edited copy of their footage on DVD for free at the end of the month.
You might also be keen to see this short, humorous series of stills looped as a movie file that we put together showing the set-up of our rig. It takes us ~1h30 to do so, but don't panic, this condenses it down to 55 seconds! 10 points for anyone who can correctly identify the theme tune from which famous British Comedy show of the 60s, 70s & 80s:
OK, so onto training then this week:
Wednesday: 5.30am and 9.30am (25m pool) swim sessions as normal at Claremont Pool
Thursday: 6/6.15pm run session at the north car park of Lake Monger. Session will be 16 x 500m this week on the hilly course.
Friday: 5.30am, 6.30am and 9.30am (25m pool) swim sessions as normal at Claremont Pool
Saturday: 1st official Brick session of 2010!! Please RSVP for this session!! We need to know how many people plan to attend. Cost will be $20 or 2 strikes on your PAYG card. All athletes will receive a detailed breakdown of their splits for the 1000m swim + 70km ride + 10km run session. Meet in the car park at Cottesloe Beach at 6.10am for a 6.30am in-the-water start. Please note the Sculptures By The Sea is still running this weekend, so it may be a bit busy down there!
Saturday: 1pm squad swim at Claremont Pool - loads of fun!!
