Thursday Swim - School Holidays
It’s the school holidays, and that means that kids don’t have to be in bed too early. So as well as the gnarly triathletes at the swim session tonight, there were also some younger faces . . . in the Learner’s Lane that I’m still in.
I was pretty worried that they’d be showing me up, and I was not disappointed in this - one young lad who can’t have been more than seven demonstrating a length of BUTTERFLY STROKE.
Also, there was another new starter at the sessions - a woman who couldn’t really swim front crawl at all. By the end of the evening, the coach, Peter, had helped her build her stroke up . . . and she did a full length. Being in the Learner’s Lane, we seem to get the vast majority of Peter’s attention, which is a huge help that I’m really grateful for. It doesn’t quite seem fair on the other five lanes, though they also seem to get lots from the session. Perhaps I’m just too busy with my face down in the water to notice how the coach’s attention is divided in a completely fair and equitable manner?
The evening finished with some 25m sprints. These were . . . . ‘interesting’. Probably not my best distance!
