A grey windy day with unseasonal temperatures didn’t dent the group’s enthusiasm for this mornings open water swim. A few of us had never used the Swim Secure tow float/dry bag and Jo and Sandra patiently took us through their use. The group was in fine fettle as we buddied-up and swam between the buoys, both to build endurance and improve our skills in turning around the marks. A hearty breakfast was followed by a further pool technique session embracing the drills we have started to integrate into our weekly pool sessions to change our stroke for the better!
The team at Tri50 always come up with new and interesting ways of improving our technique.
Jo presented a session on sports nutrition in the afternoon and in the early evening there was an unexpected and delightful yoga session given by Philippa, one of the course participants. In the evening the bonding continued over dinner before we all retired for an early night and a well deserved rest.
