The Academy swimmers have had their Distance week, Nov. 19 - 24. They have swam a total of 10 workouts (every morning, 6 - 7:30am and every afternoon) and more than 50km. Their top distance was 8km in Wednesday afternoon's 20 x 400 workout. Although they are tired, they have never whined and have always been keen to swim whatever the workout says. They have been willing to push themselves beyond their comfort zone. On Day 4, Workout #8, Jaxon (who just started swimming this season) swam an A time in the 200 Brst in practice.
It has been a great week, not only for their swimming but for their confidence and growth as athletes. I'm looking forward to seeing what they can do in Kamloops.
