Saturday practice 5/19 will be earlier than usual. It will start at 5:30am and finish before 6:45am.
We had a great group at Saturday practice this morning. Coach enjoyed this practice.
We will not have practice Saturday, May 5th. Coaches will be at different events. One will be at a meet and another at an obstacle course “race”.
If you wish, you may swim on you own at the Rec. Center after it opens at 9am. You can find old workouts in our online workout folder to use.
Due to Coaches traveling, there will be some practice changes Thursday, April 12, through Monday, April 16. I’ve created workouts and put them in our shared folder for everyday, except Saturday. As always, adjust them as you see fit – or use any of the old workouts.
You can swim at the Rec. Center on your own – but without a U.S. Masters member on deck it isn’t a U.S. Masters practice.
- April 12 – Thursday Evening: On your own practice
- April 13 – Friday Morning: On your own practice
- April 14 – Saturday: No Practice – But the Rec. opens at 9am
- April 16 – Monday Morning: On your own practice
- April 16 – Monday Evening: Kelley may be able to be on deck, so this may be a regular practice.
Hope everyone has a good weekend – let Coach David know if you need anything.
A few weeks ago we participated in the 30 minute Winter Fitness Challenge. We had some good relaxed fun. Some people participated at different times, so not everyone is pictured.
A few of us went out to Rentsch Brewery afterwards to complete our evening.
We will take part in the summer and fall challenges as well.
Saturday’s practice had a bunch of 25’s… 100 to be exact! Coach got his steps in for sure, haha. It was a fun challenge, and expect it again in the future. 🙂
We are participating in the USMS Winter Fitness Challenge! This event is a 30 minute swim done in any you want – so equipment and/or relays are ok. The Winter Fitness Challenge is an official fundraiser for the USMS Swimming Saves Lives Foundation.
To help organize this, we have created an event on Facebook; make sure you say you are coming: https://www.facebook.com/events/1643464085748259/
Make sure you invite your friends! I’m hoping everyone has some fun – plus we might go out afterwards. If your friends are newer swimmers this is a great chance to get introduced into masters swimming. If they need a little boost to train for this, I will welcome them in practice.
We are doing this event at 6:30pm on February 23, 2018 – at the Georgetown Rec. Center.
If you can’t make it then, you can do this on your own time as well. Just make sure you register and do it before the 28th!
How to Register?
To participate, you will need $12 to register for the Winter Fitness Challenge at: https://www.clubassistant.com/club/form/usms_verify.cfm?form_type=Event%20Registration&c=2426&cid=76207
The Recreation Center locker rooms will be closed for maintenance February 8-11. Keep this in mind if you use them to change. I’m assuming the family bathroom will still be open, but I’m not certain.
This should only matter for evening practice Thursday, February 8 and morning practice Friday, February 9th.
The locker room should be open for Monday morning practice.
Lane 3 had some great turns this morning. Great job Lynn, Jack, and Jenny – nice streamlines!
Lane 1 had an awesome practice this morning!
Great job Gayla, Cassie, Erika, and Audris – Glad you guys made it and put in an outstanding effort.
