New Tuesday evening squad surges off the blocks

Swim Smooth Suffolk's latest/second weekly squad kicked off this evening with a new 60 minute 2-lane session, working together on freestyle technique and threshold fitness (Critical Swim Speed, CSS). The session has grown from a great group of Fitness Unit members who I began coaching at Felixstowe Leisure Centre in 2014. Half the new group (including Windermere soloist Eileen, see blog 24.09.17) are fresh faces to Tuesdays and half are new to Swim Smooth, so it's an exciting development all-round.

Loved the group's positivity and focus, pushing through a tough main set of 6-8 x 200m swims, varying pace skilfully around (and often above) their CSS paces. And there was some darn good sculling going on too :) So a great start and looking forward to much more!
