Considering it is very early in the training cycle having just come off the summer holiday break the times posted by the swimmers representing the team at this gala is way ahead of schedule.
For those of you who did not post personal bests don’t panic! we know where improvements are needed and these will be looked at in training.
Congratulations to Elliot Furniss who for two of his swims actually took the club records for his age group in the 100 IM and 50 breaststroke. Elliot also gained 4 silver medals and a bronze for his swims.
The key elements to getting personal bests is hard training following the carefully constructed sets laid out at each of your training sessions and just as important is listening to us on areas in your swims which can be improved.
It is staggering the improvements being made already however we shall not be letting up so be prepared for some hard sessions to ensure that your swim times are constantly improving.
Thats all for just now so well done!!
Yesterday saw the younger ones competing at the Iain MacFadyen Memorial Gala at Prestonpans. Now I know we are really just back into training after Summer break so we were looking to use the times as a gauge for progressing training. As usual this lot just continue to exceed our expectations. We are so proud of each and every one of them.
Some of the merry band! (with very healthy lunches)
Saturday sees us at Prestonpans for the Iain MacFadyen Meet – please be on poolside for 8:50am to be ready for warm up
Well if the first training session back is anything to go by you have all had a great summer and seem well up for a bit of swimming!
All too soon the new swimming season will be upon us.
We will have some changes to swimmers in lanes due to our 2 oldest boys moving on to University and Work.
They will be sorely missed as they have both been with us for around 8 years. We wish them well in whatever they do now and in the future.
we will also have some new swimmers joining us so please make them feel welcome (as we know you will)
