Day 4

So much hard training today – 1.5 hours swimming, 4.5 mile run on the prom, 1.5 hours swimming!!!

Everyone worked so hard, outstanding runner defintely Tom Sutciffe, followed closely by Sam Davies and breathing hard down Sam’s neck was Phil Wain.  Everyone very impressed that at 46 years old he was still competing for top running place.

After all this training, still enough energy for bowling -

Lane winners as follows:

Lane 1 – Michael Sutcliffe

Lane 2 – Tom Sutcliffe

Lane 3 – Emma Caton (whooo whooo for girl power)

Lane 4 – Joe Leatherbarrow

Lane 5 – Alex Dunn

Refulled in McDonalds and now chillin watching the match.   Amy can’t take it anymore, she’s fast alseep in bed!!!

Think everyone else will be in bed soon as another hard full on day tomorrow – Long hard walk up The Orme for tobogganing!

All in all, everyone seems to be having a great time.

Swim Camp Day 3 – 21st October 2013

Hi Day 3 is the first day of the swim camp proper.    Up and out for 7.10am ready for a 7.30 – 9am swim.  Everyone up and ready on time.  After swimming boys and male coaches went for a game of football, and girls and female chaperones had a bit of retail therapy, with a costa thrown in for good measure.

Afternoon swim 3 – 4.30pm – still not enough exercise to tire them out so we’ve been to the arcade after tea for an hour.

Behaviour excellent from them all – just a bit too lively at times.  Phil isn’t quite sure what to with Dan C McD when he wants to wrestle – he said give him girls anytime!
