AK Athletes, this week we begin our final 6 week training block of the training year. For those with races in September and October it is an opportunity to sharpen our speed and technique one final time before we ramp down for the off season. For those that are done racing for the season it is a great opportunity to continue training with and supporting fellow athletes as we close in on first complete year of training. Our swim workouts have been well attended and we continue to recruit new swimmers to our group openwater sessions. Come join us for the remaining few weeks while the water is still warm

Great job to all those that competed at several of the races across the state this past weekend. We saw some solid performances out there from many of our athletes. It goes to show that all our training is paying off big time!

This week we will keep things light and fun for our group workouts as we enter the final training block of our annual training cycle. Come join us down at the lake for a recovery swim. If there’s one thing we can take away from our training sessions this summer, it is that all our open water swim workouts have put us in a strong position at the races. Let’s keep the swim workouts going strong through the end of summer.
