Hope you are well. First proper day back on the pool deck today and what a beautiful morning it was!
9.30am sessions this week and next:
I ran my first proper open water session of 2012 down at Cottesloe Beach this morning for the 9.30am session and despite an early sea breeze it all went very well indeed. Just as a reminder, this Friday at 9.30am and next Monday at 9.30am will also both be down at Cottesloe Beach - please pop along if you can, it's a lot of fun! All other sessions are down at Claremont Pool.
For the Easter Weekend, there will be no official sessions on Friday 6th April, Saturday 7th April, Sunday 8th April and Monday 9th April.
All will be back to normal from Tuesday 10th April for our lead-up to the Busselton Half Ironman event. I personally love this time of year for swim coaching - the weather's a bit cooler but still very fine and the volume of swimmers in the pool (including the public and carnivals, school programs etc) is always a bit lower than earlier on in the year. For those waiting for a spot to join the squad, we anticipate space becoming available in all but the 5.30am sessions on Tuesday and Friday. If interested, please reply to this email.
Please note that the 5.30am Wednesday morning session will remain as a feature over the winter at this stage, so anyone keen on getting in a really challenging and satisfying longer swim session in the week, please pop along to this!
Ladies Cycle Clinic:
Short notice this one, but may appeal to quite a few of the ladies in the group:
