It has been great challenging our junior swimmers to keep testing their limits. As they have become to feel confident that they can swim repeats of 50m Freestyle on the minute and the number of reps have increased, now is the time to test them with 10 reps and see how they go. Of course, they were thrilled when they made it and said they could handle a few more!
