Just a couple more days and hopefully we'll see the last of this foul weather...it wasn't too pleasant on pool deck this morning!
Just a reminder that both the Saturday 1-2pm open water skills session (at Claremont Pool) and the Monday 7am & 9.30am sessions will still be running this weekend despite the Public Holiday AND the AFL Grand Final!! We always like to ensure that you're covered with sessions over most of the annual public holidays as that is when many of you have additional free time, so if you can make it, please do.
Secondly, this weekend sees the start of the Perth Royal show for about 9 or 10 days. Whilst the pool's car park is reserved for soul use of the pool patrons, chances are there will be heavier than normal congestion on the roads the next two Saturdays, so if you're planning on attending the fantastically fun 1-2pm sessions on these days, please allow an extra 10-15 mins travel time - thanks!
Cheers and have a great weekend!
P.S Don't forget, we'll be testing on Friday (5.30am and 6.30am) for your current threshold pace, an excellent chance to see where you're at. To get the most accurate times we will divide each squad into two waves utilising 3 of our 4 available lanes with one lane reserved for keeping warm / moving whilst you wait for your turn. This worked really well last time around. Please bring an extra towel if you decide to hop out and stay warm on the pool deck before you're called forward. Due to the nature of these tests, please expect to get less total volume done on Friday, but equally know that it will help set you up for a great summer, knowing full well where you're starting from...not to be missed!
P.P.S it looks like we might get permission to run an additional Thursday evening session at the pool over the summer from 6.30-7.30pm to reflect Tuesday's 6.30-7.30pm session. This will be great and open up more opportunities for those of you currently wait-listed seeking to get a spot in the squad. This session will probably be a Fresh & Fruity CSS session (threshold pace) to complement Tuesday's steadier technique & endurance session with the vision that those who attend on a Tuesday will also elect to attend the Thursday evening session as well. Please let me know if you're keen and we'll get the ball rolling. Cheers!
