5 am swimming club...are they for real 

05/09/2013 at 21:10

Up at 5am, in pool for 5.30am. Got a top swimmer at my school and she has been training like this before school for years and then after school too.....

If you said I would be doing the same a few months back I would think you were mental, now I am buzzing that I can train while my mrs and kids are sleeping so I dont get any grief ha ha 

I think it is quite normal for swimming clubs to train at these hours as those competing at a high level train a lot of hours each day

I appreciate a lot of top swimmer swim early before pool open to the public.....glad to see you have a pool where you can join the group..that should ensure a really good time for you......

I have got round the problem of inconvenient public swim sessions by joining a swimming club with a few masters swim a week - so I get 3 quality swims with them and I know I am pushing myself properly when I swim and I can't shirk part of the workout just because I can't be bothered.

Maybe, but you'd be waiting longer if it was the other way around.

I've got to do it in 4 hours!  I have some training to do.

It gets even funnier, I think next year's Grim is only about 4 days after.

 La la la la I'm not listening. Err fancy a relay?  If you want to do the 70 as a solo I'm hiding behind the sofa.

As if hiding ever did any good.

3 swims a week...... ?

oh bugger i remember that training thing.   enjoying the odd bob at the moment.

dont forget theres a long way to go, and you neeed mojo for the training bit in the last 10 weeks.  the previous 20 weeksis about getting fit enough to do the last 10 weeks of training

this time of year is just exercise / having fun.  however if you need to get fir, start nowat a low level, do domething every day and let the fitness build slowly.  swim a bit, bike lots and run some

My sessions are currently about coaching some technique into me as my freestyle" was learnt via YouTube and it seems I may have a few bad habits...the kids at the pool blow my mind, the top kids are training upto 60km a week

i am current doing lots of drills with a kick board etc..... I thought I was a fit lad, a couple of sessions of club swimming have made me realise I am not ha ha.

but to be honest the campsite at The outlaw is perfect.........you can't park your car so close 

and its flat and its the place to meet pirates................and if you don't want to be in the middlew of the pirates you can book electric hookup and get some peace
