From the Coaches:
Maria: This week’s open water practice will be at Kent Beach, to swim the T-Rex course. We will do a warm up and some light drills, then you can swim the course as many rounds as you want. Meet at the end by the outhouse. Plan to arrive by 6:15 so we can be swimming promptly at 6:30!
Melissa: Our Swim to the Moon Team is coming together – Consider signing up and joining us on Sunday, 8/20. Distances run from 1/2 mile to a 10k – something for everyone. If you have questions or would like more information about the event, please reach out to me at 248-933-4435. Here is the link to sign up!
Kris: Gone for summer season
Dianne: It is already the middle of July!! We will most likely be able to continue Walnut Creek practices through middle of August with our last practice being August 13 (subject to change). Open water practices and indoor pool practices will most likely continue through the end of August.
On a Personal Note: Summer is a perfect time to come to practice not only for your usual workout but it is also a perfect time to come if you have something that you would like to work on such as a specific drill, technique, or stroke. While I like to think that everyone is able to follow my workouts, I know that that is not always the case. If there is a drill or skill that you are trying to do that you just don’t understand please don’t hesitate to stop and ask questions. If you don’t understand why we were doing a certain drill or skill, again, don’t hesitate to ask. Drills, sculling, the little random things inside a workout that I like to torture you with all have a point and trust me there is most often a method to my madness! Summers are for flexible schedules and that can most certainly extend to the water.
Communication: If you have questions for any of the coaches don’t hesitate to ask! Here’s a quick list of emails to make that a bit easier!
