Well, the countdown is now fully on for the Rottnest Channel Swim - just 15 sleeps to go!
Just to let you know what training options we have available this weekend for those wanting to sharpen up their open water swimming skills:
- Saturday 6.15am meet for a 6.30am start. Meet at Trigg SLSC tower for a ~10km Rotto "Rehearsal" swim, heading south for ~5km and then turning around and heading back. Plan is for people to bring their paddlers with them if at all possible and practice proper race nutrition. This is our last major swim session before the event. Even if you're not doing the solo swim this year, you might like to try doing part of this swim, say down to Scarborough and back (total = 3.6km) or if you fancy paddling I know there are a few soloists whose paddlers can't make it this Saturday and would appreciate the support.
- Saturday 1.00pm. Claremont Pool. Squad session in the pool ideally focussed on developing your openwater skills for ocean swimming and triathlons. It's a good one this week and would really suit the duo and team swimmers this weekend! Come along and give it a try!
- Sunday 7.00am. North Cottesloe Beach. North Cott SLSC have an ocean swim heading out bang on 7.00am with IRB support. Choose your distance - 2.0km to 8.0km and celebrate a 40th birthday swim with Coach Adam! Sure to be a fun one!
See you out there in le Grand Bleu!
