Senior Red Update from Coach Alexis

June 9th, 2019 | Posted by kigooswm in Coaches Corner

Hello Senior Reds!

AMAZING job this weekend at Boundary Bay! Many of us are getting closer to our best times from last season already and it is awesome to see you all put in 100% effort into every race. Everyone was focussed on the technique that we talked about before the races, and we’re starting to figure out which lengths are the best for us to push ourselves to the fullest in the longer races. Shoutout to Nikol, Lucas, and Tia who did their first 200 IM of the season and absolutely killed it! Thank you for representing Kigoos so well this weekend.

Since we have no meet coming up this weekend, this week will be mostly longer sets with an emphasis on getting our fitness levels back up now that school is winding down. We will still have a strong focus on underwaters and breakouts because they are extremely important – as most of you remembered this weekend (secret word: thanos) Next week will be more focus on race tactics and speed. Please try to come to as many practices as possible in these next two weeks.

I can’t believe first month of the season is already over but I’m excited for three more months of working with you all! See you on the pool deck.
