Fortune teller? I posted this early on Friday morning's 5.30am session (and subsequently all over social media and even on the Channel Ten news during an interview I did for the station on Friday afternoon) regarding the likely conditions on Saturday's Karma Resorts Rottnest Channel Swim and the need to head north:
This was then literally published in the West Australian Friday morning also (good to know my advice was congruent with that of a professor, just call me "Doc"!):
So, firstly, congratulations if you made it across to Rottnest on Saturday in some pretty challenging current-based conditions disguised as "perfect" in the lead up to the event. Expect a full and comprehensive write up and results on this in the next day or two - keep posted!
Secondly, the following adjustments have been made for the 9.30am squads this week and early next whilst I am away down south:
- Wednesday 1st March at Sorrento Beach with Coach Sally at 10am to 11/11.15am for some longer ocean-intervals and a few fun ins / outs (but not too much running!)
- Friday 3rd March at Claremont Pool at 9.30 to 10.30am (originally planned for Sorrento Beach) with Coach Sally - we have 4 to 5 lanes in the 25m pool scheduled to run a higher-intensity session to contrast with Wednesday's session
- Monday 6th March at Claremont Pool at 9.30 to 10.30am with Coach Ross (Tuesday PM's new coach) for a pure technique session as normal
Hope that all makes sense and is not too confusing for you in this dynamic period with the pool carnivals going on etc.
