The pool is easy to find. You go through the gate, where you need a car pass. If its your 1st time tell the security guard you are swiiming with the Tri club. You can get a form to apply for a pass from Karen the coach.Inside you drive along the main road, turn first right and follow the road round, the car park will be in front of you. There are some works going on at the moment and the way in to the pool is sign posted. As you get into the training centre building you turn left. The changing rooms are on your right, the men use the second door with the male figure on it, there is only one door for the women.Don't leave your valuables in the changing rooms. There have been thefts in the past. You can take you kit bag poolside where there is a small room where we leave our things.Contact [i]Karen[/i] for further details
Explanation of terms so you know what you're in for!!!
AEROBIC - steady swimming - mostly front crawl
AEROBIC IMPROVEMENT - shortish efforts (100's-200's) with short rest - 10 secs
PULL/KICK - self explanatory I think!!!
TECHNIQUE - a few drills but mostly 'thinking while swimming'
VO2 MAX - well...long efforts (4mins plus) swum very hard with lots of rest - this is the one that will make the difference if you've put the effort in over the winter - a teeth gritting session - not to be missed!
INDIVIDUAL MEDLEY - work on all strokes
ANAEROBIC THRESHOLD - another tough session - 100's - 200's with 30 secs rest - swum at about 80% effort
DISTANCE LANE - for all those who want to swim long intervals
Sea Swims (May - Sept)
Sea swims of various distances starting from the Car Park, Teignmouth 7.00 p.m. on Monday Evenings. Rescue cover is provided by the Teignmouth Lifeguards who accompany the swimmers on rescue boards. The length of the swim and whether or not we go in is decided on the evening once we see what the sea conditions are like. We usually divide into two groups, one swimming upwards of 2000 metres, while a slower group swims between half that distance and 1500 metres.The swim session is usually ended with a short run and trip to the pub.
Small session fee charged
I'm crapping myself now... do I make contact?
I can only do slow breaststroke, this is way above my league surely.
How should I start thinking about swimming, should I rehabilitate my ankle myself just by getting swimming, breast stroke accepted or should I email these guys and find out what they can do for me?
I feel out of my depth - obviously hee hee.
Right, I bit the bullet and emailed this, let's face it I need all the help I can get and I'm going to look a right t*t along the way at some point. I musn't let myself get intimidated by comparing my cr*ppy swimming to the local tri gods...
Dear Kate, you are a nutter. Karen
I've just decided to grin and bear the embarrasment I will go through!
Barly, where do I find detaild of the Bala middle distance tri, is it open to entries yet? I've been scanning the forum with no luck.....
