Abby's July Post!

If you missed her other blogs, Abby is a young competitive all round swimmer who trains in our swimwear. She won an impressive gold medal in the Butterfly at the ASA Nationals last summer and has had an exciting year, she sets off today to the British Championships in Sheffield!  Here is her latest blog post....

Hi it’s Abby here


I’m sitting in my living room and I’ve got 8 days until the British Championships. The time has gone so quickly but our training programme is now basically finished, our coach has helped us through it and now it is down to me to get the results. Our training sessions are now just ‘maintenance’ sessions, they are designed to just maintain our high level of fitness. I had Club Champs last weekend and it gave me a lot of confidence as I got some good PBs and won a number of races; I felt strong! One of the other club coaches has got all of the swimmers going to the British and English Championships ‘team’ hoodies, they are going to have our names on them and whatever else we like, I think this is a good thing it makes us feel like we are going there as a team and supporting each other. Also over the past couple of weeks I have been having some individual sessions with another club coach helping me to train my mind and understand race tactics that will help me with my racing. The sessions have really helped. So, overall everything is now in place and I feel focused for the British Champs, physically and mentally prepared.
So, after the 27th July I will be putting another blog up, it may be short or long (depending on what happens!) you will have to wait and see.
Wish me luck!
Abby

We wish you lots of luck Abby, have a really fantastic time at the British Championships!
