Six days down and only one day to go before the swimmers return home for some well-deserved rest!
With a now well oiled, clock work like morning routine, the swimmers were in the pool just before 7 am for a tough Threshold Set.
Luckily the sun stayed out until we had returned for breakfast and morning down time was briefly interrupted by some light showers and thunder
This however did not deter a brave and intrepid Head Coach John Sargent who, despite an encroachment from some small fish and with cheers of encouragement from his charges on the balconies, impressed us with an open water swim across the bay. John concluded the swim with (we generously estimate) 20 strokes of fly, justified show-boating in the circumstances, given the immense length of the swim, some strong currents and some very choppy waters
Due to the inclement weather, the pre-lunch land training session migrated indoors to the aerobic studio. A number of the boys regretted not packing their luminous headbands and leg warmers!
A chill out session followed lunch, and with the return of the sun, the swimmers were rewarded with a moderately intense training set in the afternoon – very much justified given all the hard work and effort during the week so far.
We concluded the day celebrating another 13th birthday – many happy returns to Josie Pretious White!
The week so far has gone incredibly well, the swimmers have mixed and bonded superbly as a team, with each and every one excelling themselves in the pool and displaying exemplary behaviour at the resort. They have been a credit to the club! Hopefully there will not be too many sad faces as the camp draws to a close tomorrow
