Update 5

All done and our swimmers attending every session have covered between 73,400 and 81,600 metres. There have been some truly impressive performances and resilience has been a key component in achieving these distances. It has been unsurprising but eye opening to see athlete fitness elevate to new levels day by day despite all the fatigue so I am very happy with the balance of volume and intensity achieved.

We had another quiz, this time won by Team Juan (Harriet, Luke Adams, Ella and Gabby). There were no takers for the mountain so JS went up solo 😁

Big thanks to our TMs (Claire & Rachel) who have almost qualified as pharmacists with their frequent visits to the chemist and medical centre on this camp.

Well done survivors....oops...swimmers 👍👊🏊‍♀️🏊‍♂️👊


Thanks to Ella for the synopsis of her first camp -

Swim camp summary:

I have really enjoyed my first International swim camp. It was a completely new experience with some difficult challenges but also a lot of fun along the way.

This camp has been a one of my best swimming experiences and one I will never forget. The training was extremely challenging and tough but completing every session and not missing a single metre out on the camp gave me a sense of accomplishment and made me feel even stronger - I hope this will help me in the future.

I am sad to leave as I had lots of fun, met some great people and swimming in an outdoor pool was a brand new experience and was really exciting.

I will build on all of my training & experience from the camp & continue to work hard in every session once I am home in order to progress and try to achieve my goals, both short term and long term.

Update 4

The swimmers had a highly challenging set on Sunday morning but were rewarded with an afternoon off for their sterling efforts. Cue dash to the beach 🏖

After some frolicking and playing in the sea it was Dominos and McDonald’s time (note - this was not sanctioned by JS).

The evening quiz ensued and Round 2 was won by Team OAP (Sean, Emily, Hannah and Frankie). This was the Chocolate Bar Quiz and TMs Rachel and Claire insisted on having a solo go - Rachel’s knowledge of chocolate narrowly edged Claire’s by one point 🍫

Back to the pool action this morning and it was the Big No1 over distance challenge. Special mention to the Fly folk here (Joe, Ella, Emily and Adam) that 4x1000 was brutal 😫

27 Degrees for our afternoon outdoor session......☀️☀️☀️ hope you’re all warm back home 😉

Update 2

Day 3 and the drop off has started. Those still holding it together with zero missed out are - Max, Joe, Connor, Josie, Emily, Alex, Ella, Hannah Mc, Emma J, Ruby, Adam, Lucy, Sean and...........Harriet 😁
Well done H and Great Job all of you 👍

There was a 7.5k challenge for our distance group who gobbled it up like hungry swimmers at Breakfast. Elsewhere the TMs have been busy with the casualty ward as the wounded get patched up and sent back to the front 😉

The evening brought about a nice trip to the Gioconda Restaurant and our usual quiz time. Congratulations to quiz winners Team Walnut - Lauren Bradley-Holt, Lucy Dixon, Joe Stout and Alex Volkovoy. Will they win round 2?
