Can you believe it's April already? 2017 is flying by so fast, before you know it it'll be 2018! How are you going with your goals for this year? Are you on track or is there some big actions needed? Some of my goals are going really well, I'm competing in more ocean swim events, getting more and more people exciting about swimming and healthy living, but I'm the first to admit that I definitely need to get some other things going pronto! Let's make April the month to get moving towards these goals that have been put on the back burner for the last few months! Comment below with your April Action Plan and stay accountable to make it happen!
My April action plan is to get this years Swimfit Four Mile Beach Ocean Swim organised. Here I said it. The date is picked, Sunday 10 September, so now it's on to event plans, approvals, sponsors and marketing. I am making the promise to you right now that everything will be in place by the end of this month and you will be able to register by 1 May. I'm so excited for you to join me again in this awesome event!
So let's get onto the April FREE Swimfit Swim Session, that's what you're here for in the end :) I've put together another great session for with lots of different swim exercises to keep things fun. You might notice how every session starts with a standard 200 warm up and 100 cool down, please don't ignore these two very important components of a good swim session! We need to warm up the muscles to make most out of any training we do and cool them down again to ensure a speedy recovery.
There is ways to make this fun though! As I mentioned in my previous blog post, swimming with a buddy makes everything so much better and there is some great ways to work together on making swimming more fun!
- Have a chat while kicking with a kick board
- One person swims just arms while the other person holds you ankles and kicks, switch every lap and try some different strokes
- High-five, this is one of my personal favourites! Swim freestyle next to each other and in the recovery high-five each other.
