I hope you are all safe and well.
These are testing times for all of us with the Coronavirus outbreak, I never thought we would end up in this situation. The effects to our working life, school closures, exams cancelled, no social gatherings, restaurants – pubs – clubs, all closed, etc. We have never known anything like it.
While there is no definite date of when we can all come together again to train (hopefully it will not be too far in the future) we must try to help ourselves by doing what we can from home. Some of our members have dogs, take them out for a walk more, maybe even go for a run, if you have a bike , get the tyres pumped up and go for a ride, do core body strength exercises using the land training info I have emailed previously, improvise and adapt, you never know you might even enjoy it.
I feel both sad and disappointed that our swimmers didn’t get the opportunity to see the results of all their hard work in the upcoming Galas . The previous galas were all good indicators of how we were doing , so it is so sad not to see them swim at their full potential. As I mentioned earlier, hopefully it won’t be too long before we are back doing what we love, swimming.
