Swim England Winter Nationals 2021

14 hours ago

Had a fantastic weekend at Ponds Forge Sheffield, racing short course for the last

time this year. I raced my favourite events, 400 free and 1500 free, getting a new

personal best time in each event and reaching the senior finals. Was really pleased

with a 17 sec drop on my 1500 time. Also reached the senior final of the 200 free

and raced a new PB. Great to see friends from all around the country in a racing

environment again.

Feva Training Weekend 2

2 days ago

Weekend 2 of the RS Feva RYA training, at my home club, Draycote.

Our goal was downwind speed and tactics.

The high winds forced us in to the classroom to go through boat set up and tactic theory of sailing in strong winds.

We also managed a couple of hours each day on the water putting the theory into practice. It was very mentally and physically challenging but we learnt so much from our fantastic coaches. Me and my crew, Felicity, received some really positive feedback.

Saturday eve I also raced in the pool at my swim clubs open meet. I was so happy to get a PB in my 100 free which gives me a qualifying time for the Counties Comp which will be held early next year.

I am really looking forward to learning more about how to hydrate and fuel myself for these long weekends of training.

Thank you TLT for the support.

Training Hard and enjoying it.

5 days ago

I took part in the City of Leicester Open Meet last weekend where I gained quite a few pb's and of course lots of race experience, including valuable finals experience.

I am back in the pool, training hard for our last open meet of the year, in Corby, just before Christmas.

Thank you for your support
