Bank holiday selfie - looks lovely, it was blowing a gale!

It's that time of the week again, time to reflect. I have been blown away by you all yet again. 

Great team work this weekend, and swimmers pushing beyond what they thought they would get (don't even bother trying to guess what I'll give you next!!) and voluntarily doing more than asked of them. Big congrats to those who did 6, only one went in intending to do it, but 3 ended up doing it - simply amazing!  Vicky Miller did back to back 6's, incredible. Some relay swimmers did their 2 hour qualifiers, well done!

Today was a different twist. It was blowing a gale and the air was really chilly. So I made it harder by telling the red hats they could choose what they wanted up to a maximum of 3 hours with no feeds. Given a legitimate get out clause you all chose wisely. Many pushed themselves to the full 3, some chose less given they're swimming later in the year. All good choices which will help you on the big day as the only person who will keep you in that water on that day is you - the motivation has to come from within. 

Well done all, see you next week!!
