Muscular interaction

Have now decided to step down from the top performance squat because with parts of the body injured, the training level and demand on the whole body is simply too much.

Training exercises affect the whole body and if part of that body is not fully working than the result can be more pain and injury.

A shoulder operation may involve having to wear a plaster cast on the shoulder for 2 – 3 months and that will effectively squash any hope of being in the pool.

We will hear next week what the time-table for the treatment is going to be.

It’s always good to have other things to do. The GCSE and schooling are always there, it is possible to do gym work and land work and there is always the possibility to enter a career of coaching to pass on that enthusiasm and skills.

Stay positive, look forward, never give up.

Can’t swim but volunteer

volunteer award
Well done Madison with Jeremy and Jo

Tonight at the Hackney Aquatics Awards evening, Madison won the Jeremy Tobias-Tarsh volunteers award for providing more than 115 volunteer hours helping other swimmers in the club and the coaches.

 

If you love the sport of swimming and remember those times when you were in the development squads, then you know how it feels to get that extra special bit of attention that a pool side helper with great stroke knowledge can bring.

Hackney Aquatics has a great young volunteers program, helping young persons into an aquatics career.
