** Advanced Warning ** Pirate Christmas Social



  • What's the matter Meldy? Afraid of being beaten by Barlos?!image
  • Nope .....  not a chance  image

  • Cluck, cluck cluck!
  • I shall right royally whoop his arse !!

  • Have a great party. Gutted I cant be there.

    Go Meldyimage

  • I'll do fly. Anything for a laugh.

  • In all seriousness, the ease at which I can 'put my back out' I wont be trying Fly either, put it down to old age or whatever but I'll stick to front crawl with a bit of backstroke thrown in

    Muffin ...sorry you wont make the do but I am not sorry you wont be at the PSOF Swim Champs  !!

  • maybe those who are of a certain age with dodgy shoulders and backs.can do the doggie paddle for that length image

  • I can fly kick (in fins), but trying to put the top half of the stroke in play somehow switches my legs into breaststroke kick- I'll have another try this evening.

    I think if the IM is to be a balanced race we'll need to handicap the breast and fly refusniks, catch-up drills maybe instead?

    I also think (following up something Coach B said earlier) we may need to tinker with the schedule:

    100m FC: 4 races (3 heats + final) @ 2min/race = 8 mins

    400m FC: 4 races (3 heats + final) @ 8min/race = 32 mins

    100 IM: 4 races @ 4min/race = 16 mins

    150 relay 3mins

    Gives a total of 59 minutes of swimming.  My estimates on time may be a wee bit out, but possibly just do the 400s on a 'best time' basis?

  • I leave you guys for a little while, head back in to wish you all a great drunken mess of a party at the weekend, and what do I see...

    swim stats and race time predictions


    Jeeeezzz image

  • *Have a great drunken mess of a party guys* image image

    im gutted to not be there - should be a cracker!

    word of warning - Meldy has been totting up the slights all year - me thinks there may be some retributions in order this weekend! haha
