Having been working on speed development over the past month. The next four sessions will start to include more sustained/ slower paced swimming.

The main set integrates steady paced longer swims with shorter quicker swims. The purpose of the longer swims is to recover. Swimmers should try to maintain the same pace throughout the shorter swims.

This weeks session is a repeat of the first week of this year, which will give you a chance to see how much progression you've made. Before anyone pulls me up on this, clearly this is only applicable if you have attended the first one but you should have some idea of your 100m times by now? (you do have don't you?).

On the main set there is plenty of rest, this is deliberate. The goal is to go hard but not so hard that you cannot maintain good form - so P'nG, T/T or Fast Turns and centered head - holding a narrow balanced stroke - and then sustaining it !!!

Hard Even Paced Reps with No Drop Off

Regards, Francis.

 This weeks session will again build on the work we have done since the start of the year - Pace Awareness.

It would be helpful for you to remind yourselves of the "target" times you have been achieving over the last couple of weeks, prior to the session. The trick is to hit your time consistently throughout the session, rather than going too quick and fading.

Alan is away, so you've got me again to lecture you; hard luck folks.

Speed Work Pt 2 - the focus of this session is to combine speed work with submaximal pace judgement. Again swimmers should focus on maximising their starts and turns and becoming comfortable working off the clock. Swimmers should use previous weeks' speed work as a reference for pace judgement

Alan is leading again and is more than happy to receive feedback.

Please note: the weather forecast is poor for tomorrow, the pool is open from 6:00 pm, so allow lots of time for your journey and come early if you wish. Regards Francis.

We are sorry to inform you that tomorrows track session at Carnegie is cancelled.

Gavin and I have checked and the track is currently closed due to the severe weather and the forecast for tomorrow is for no improvement. So that you can make alternative arrangements we have made our descison today; hope you understand. May I suggest you take the opportunity to do some focussed stretching at home - how many of you have tight hamstings, glutes, etc - are you really as flexible as you could/should be?

Regards Francis.

Base Set 2 - Stroke Length and Swim Speed Development

The aim of this session is to work on basic stroke technique and swim speed. The main set (shaded) requires just below maximal swim speeds, alternated with easy recovery swims. Swimmers should monitor their times and note any 'trail off' in preformance. These types of sets are excellent opportunities to work on starts and turns.

Alan Smith leading, see you next week. Regards Francis.

Welcome Back and HNY2U all - my apologies for the late posting but I've been chasing confirmation that LGS is actually open tomorrow evening. Alan Smith will be leading the sessions for this quarter with the usual team as back up until March, when I'm stepping down.

The focus of the session is to establish a base line for swimming speed, where the "test" element is the 4 x 100m - your goal is to record your highest sustainable pace whilst maintaining form - so we want you to pay attention to your starts (Push and Glide) turns (Flip where possible) and breathing (3SB) - which is why this is set at 90% effort - we want 100% focus on quality

Regards, Francis.

This will be our last session of 2012 before we break up - Gala Night and Fun Swim, so I'm not posting an actual set - we will do a few warm up drills and then have a little light hearted fun with some mixed relay races. We would like to thank you for supporting us and would like to wish you all a very

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from your Team of Coaches

Regards Francis
