Weekly Newsletter


Hope you're all having a fan-dabby-dozy week! I was just about to say that I was enjoying the cooler weather and then I took a step outside into this afternoon's furnace...! ;-) It's all good!

OK, couple of notices then this week:

  1. Thanks to those of you who have enquired about being a part of our new filming project this Sunday and next. Please find the schedule of filming at Please confirm your places. We still have a couple of spots available next Sunday (21st March), so please don't miss this great opportunity to be part of a super-innovative program that we are devising - I think you'll all really like it once it's released! The way it will work is that we've allocated each 45 minute window to 4 swimmers. We have a series of ~4 angles to film for each swimmer, but will run through each swimmer at angle # 1 first, then switch everyone to angle # 2 etc etc. This way there should be minimal waiting around and we will aim to run through everyone as smoothly as possible, but will request your patience. I'll set up a bit of an optional swim workout for those who would like the option of doing some swimming after their allotted spot. Please bring a couple of towels and some warm clothing.
  2. There has been minimal interest this year in the Rottnest Boot Camp which is understandable given that a large majority missed out on gaining a place for the event. As such we will not run the camp this year but will continue to run our structured Brick Sessions as per the original plan on Saturdays 20/3, 10/4 & 17/4. This also allows me to spend some quality time with my Dad on his "surprise" late-notice visit, so I thank you in advance if you were thinking of this (as I know some were)!
  3. Please remember 9.30am swimmers, that this Friday 12th March we will be running our session at Cottesloe Beach, not at the Claremont Pool. This is due to two large Carnivals taking place there. Please don't be put off by coming down! We'll meet on the grass bank in front of the pylon and do some really fun open water skills and drills which I hope you'll all really enjoy! Don't forget "Sculptures by the Sea" (my absolute favourite art festival) is also on at the beach, so what better excuse to come down and kill two birds with one stone!
  4. Training over the next few days looks like this: Thursday 6/6.15pm running at Lake Monger (tonight is a quality 4k, 3k, 2k, 1k run set - ideal for you HIM runners!); Friday 5.30am and 6.30am sessions as normal, but 9.30am session is at Cottesloe Beach (as explained above); Saturday 6.30am should be a 3h30 ride (suggestion is a hillier route this week to break the monotony from last week's Freeway ride) followed by a 45 mins run off the bike OR 7.30am swim at Trigg Beach (4-6km for those keen) AND/OR 1.00pm squad swim at Claremont Pool - pop along, its lots of fun!

Have a great weekend everyone!



P.S We haven't moved any further forward yet with the Thursday morning session idea, but will be launching something here fairly soon - watch this space!
