I also put my new coaching skills to the test this weekend (I took the NCCP Community coaching course a few weekends back). The Kronos Tri Club was hosting a Junior Elite skills camp over the long weekend and Bart (the head coach) asked me to help out with a Transition clinic and and some assistance in with a swim session. It was good, I still need some work on my coaching skills but I had fun and got some great feedback.
We had them set up T1 inside and do a T1/T2 simulation (stationary though!).
The kids...looking tired (it was the end of the day for them!).
After the swim portion of the camp, I jumped in the water for my swim and felt pretty good. I find talking and thinking about the technical aspects of swimming always makes me pay attention to my stroke more and usually I have a great swim after! Watch out Paul, Coach L is fine-tuning her skills!!
Love winter...remember to always start your run into the wind...it will be much more enjoyable!
