EMERALDS

Early Morning Early Rising Armadale Long Distance Swimmers

The EMERALDS squad trains at the Armadale Fitness and Aquatic Centre.

Training

During summer season on Monday and Wednesday Mornings from 5:30AM to 7:00AM starting in early October to late March. We swim in lanes 7 and 8 and you are most welcome to join us.

Training will be mostly in the outdoor 50m pool, but we may duck into the 25m indoor pool if the weather is exceptionally bad.

WHAT SORT OF TRAINING WILL WE BE DOING?

The focus will be on improving aerobic fitness for Endurance 1000 swims and open water swims.  I believe with a bit of guidance and some hard work everyone can improve on their aerobic fitness and achieve their swimming goals.  You will be pushed but not broken if you stick with the programs.

WHO ARE THE SESSIONS FOR?

The sessions will be tailored to suit all swimmers of all abilities.  

WHAT DO I NEED TO BE PART OF THE EARLY MORNING TRAINING SESSIONS?

Bring along your fins, pull buoy, sports watch and Beeper if you have one.  Club members can loan one of the clubs stop watches and/or beepers – We have limited stock, so first in first served.

Please contact me if you’re interested in joining the squad so I have the right program ready for you.

HOW ARE THE SESSIONS ORGANISED?

Swimmers of like ability are grouped together in the same lane and appropriate sessions are provided.  Each session usually has a warm up period, a main set, a contrasting set and a swim down period.  On an average morning lane 7 will swim approximately 3,600m and lane 8 approximately 2,800m in 1.5 hours.  If the distances sound intimidating, don’t let it put you off.  The idea is to train up to a level you feel comfortable with and to begin with you don’t have to swim every bit of the session.
