April 2013 – Time Trial

Well done to all our swimmers who have completed this months time trails again we have had some fantastic improvements through out all our groups. Leading the way from the Junior Development was Poppy Gorman who came in with 3:43.5 and took an incredible 45.9 seconds from her previous time. Rebecca Booth produced a brilliant 3:34.2 and took 19.7 seconds of her previous best and earned her self a place in the Age Group Development. Age Group Development swimmer Masie Wiseman was not far behind with a 15.7 improvment on her previous best with Junior Development swimmer Lucy Irvine just behind her with 15.5 second pb.

Age Group Performance swimmers for the first time completed their time trial over the 400m Individual Medley this was to allow the swimmers the opportunity to race over the distance and to best measure our swimmers fitness level at this level. 4 swimmers came in under 6 minutes with Anna Hulme showing that she is now completely recovered from the major surgery that she under went earlier this year as she came in as the fastest swimmer with a time of 5:43.2. 11 year old Charlotte Nester continued her excellent form finishing second with 5:45.1. First boy home was Matthew Silvester with 5:48.3 and Emily Hall took the fourth spot with 5:54.2.

Our next trials scheduled in June will see the National Group take on the 400m Individual Medley as their time trial for the first time, this will give the group the opportunity to measure their fitness levels and a comparison to hoe their program is developing.

It is clear those swimmers who are following the recommended training programme by completing the correct sessions for both their age and ability are producing some excellent performances and without doubt we have some excellent swimmers who have a tremendous talent, and as Head Coach I am looking forward to see our swimmer develop over the coming months and years. But for this to happen swimmers do need to be completing the correct level of training which is in line with sports LTAD for your age and ability.
