Nov 16, 2020 – Swim Regio Solothurn

Longer aerobic focused Monday evening workout integrating short sprints as we tackled this last week of our “extended training cycle” with no opportunity to compete at last week’s SC Nationals for our athletes now gearing up for a mini intrasquad meet series.

First part of the workout continues to “replace” our usual on-deck warm-up activity with the athletes going through a “wide range of movements” in the pool.

We had good results with our sole competitor at the Swiss Short Course Nationals in Sion. After over a year without a PB, she was able to break all her PBs and even qualified for the B final in the 200 breaststroke. Find our “teams” (or all of the championship) results on SwimRankings.
