So, the season kicked off with some early season pool based sprints in April. East Leake and the Notts Varsity were pretty cold but the sun came out for Southwell. It was great to see some first timers competing at these events, it gives everyone a buzz!
As we moved into May the lakes opened and the wetsuits came out. This started the Aquathon season at Activities away and once again we have had several members competing, with our Club Championship taking place tomorrow. May also saw the Nottingham Sprint and Outlaw Half and once again we had some excellent performances.
Into June and the weather warmed up nicely. We had a couple of touring parties going to the Deva Standard in Chester, a first river swim for one of our members, and Tallington Lakes. Members also took part at Windsor, another first timer at Olympic Distance, Dambuster and Ironman Staffs 70.3 with another first timer over that distance!
Into July and we sent another raiding party to Norfolk to tackle the Outlaw Half at Holkham. On what was a hot breezy day our members did amazing, with one of our ladies smashing her PB at the 70.3 distance by well over 30mins and our Lead Coach coming in Sub 5hrs.
Add to this the numerous running, biking and swimming events that we’ve been taking part in and it adds up to a busy season so far.
Our coaches are so proud of every single member, the effort they put in at our swim and run sessions, and the results they are achieving.
