The Kingfisher Aquathlon and Clash of the Tritons Aquathlon are both open for registration. Get in quick before they fill up so that you can compete for the club in the London League. These events will be great practise for your 'A' races (the races you are really aiming to do well in). They'll also be great fun because there will be a fantastic team atmosphere. Go on do it!

We'll also be working on some sculling drills to help develop that effective catch and pull phase to propel you forwards through the water. Speaking of lungs have a read of the Swim Smooth blog about breathing into the trough that is created by the bow wave when you have the correct head position. You might just have a 'eureka moment' on Sunday when you try it.
