Hope that you all had a wonderful week and weekend. There were plenty of bowls to watch on television. With the Puppy Bowl, Kitten Bowl and Super Bowl Sunday was a bowl of a day! What a great week this is going to be! We are going to have some great 70’s in the afternoons and then rain in the morning. Perfect for working out! We will be back in the water soon so, get as many workouts in as possible. Staying in shape is very important. I miss seeing everybody, so looking forward to being back in the water soon!
I know we can stay in shape for this short break so that when we get back into the water it will be go time with ease! Please continue to do as many S&C workouts as you can to stay in shape. You are also welcome to challenge each other to workouts. Just keep it friendly! We will be back in the water, hopefully, soon.
The swim center pool is closed at this time. The HOA is moving forward with plans for our return. As soon as they determine a date for return I will let you know. They want all swimmers, coaches and staff to safe when we return. If you have any questions send me a text or email. I am looking forward to learning of the date for swim team safely return to the pool. As of this time, Austin must be in Stage 3 for 14 consecutive days to trigger the return plan. The numbers are coming down so, please wear a mask, wash your hands and stay safe! I think we are all in agreement when I say; we want to get back into the water as soon as possible.
We will have our weekly hangout on zoom on Wednesday. The following schedule will be used: Bronze 5:00pm; Silver and Gold 5:30pm; Sr and PrSr 6:00pm. The links will be sent out on Wednesday morning. During out calls this week please have a favorite S&C exercise to share. I will write next week’s workouts from your recommendations! Please continue to stay safe and heathy. Please remember to practice safe distancing according to the CDC Guidelines. South Texas Swimming which is our LSC for USA Swimming has a Covid-19 link on their web page. It has great information about what USA Swimming is doing in regards to moving forwards. That link is https://www.teamunify.com/SubTabGeneric.jsp?_stabid_=206159&team=szstxlsc
Be sure and hydrate throughout your workout. Do not worry if you do not have mini dumbbells or weights at your house. Everything will be able to be done with things you have at home. So, lace up those running shoes, grab that water bottle, find your favorite music and get prepared for a week of great fun! : ) If you have a request for a certain exercise drop me an email. I will include it in next week’s workouts.
I am so proud of all who are participating! Please be sure and workout so you are in shape when we get back into the water. Any questions please email me [email protected] or give me a call 210-632-4344.
Let’s be safe and take care,
Coach Jennie Lou
