Tokyo Relay Week 4

Monday 22nd February 2021

Wow what a difference a week makes, it almost feels like spring! Lots of trainers are firmly laced up and back clocking up some impressive distances. Fitness levels must be improving as some seem to be getting faster or going even further each week. We have has a few casualties, most notably is young George who was almost at 10km before taking a tumble and a bash to the knee. He is all patched up and ready to go again. Others have some muscle tightness so have switched to a walk or a bike to aid recovery. Remember to warm up, cool down and stretch! Half term has seen a trend of fewer early morning outings as our athletes take advantage of some lie ins. Pancake day may have been responsible for some extra trips to the shops. We have also seen the introduction of interval training, shuttle runs and hills! We are now at 5700km, with running now totaling over 2000km! Walking follows with 1600km and 1180km on bikes. Keep up the good work now we are back to home school working again and let’s see if we can focus and boost the fundraising this week.

Masters Coach Nick Retires

Tuesday 16th February 2021

It is with great sadness that we are announcing that our long serving Masters squad coach, Nick Cockran, is stepping down. Nick took over coaching the squad 14 years ago, after a long period of temporary coaches and self coaching by the swimmers. Through that 14 years, Nick brought stability to the squad and helped grow the squad into a size that needed three lanes at The Walnuts. With swimmers of varying ability, and a huge variation of age (teens to 50+), Nick wrote and managed sets each week to include and accommodate everyone’s desire, from social fitness to competition fitness. This is an extremely difficult task which all his swimmer appreciated very much. From all your swimmers and members, present and past; thank you Nick for looking after the squad so well for such a long time.
