Swimming at Chinquapin Pool in Alexandria
POSTED: 3/16/09 11:28 AM

Hi, my name is Jane, and I live in Alexandria close to Shirlington and Del Ray. I usually swim at Chinquapin pool next to TS Williams High School. Anyone interested in creating a swim schedule at that location?

I swim at Chinquapin, but normally during the day when the pool is less crowded. Contact me if you're interested.

I am headed over to Chiquapin around 10:30 am today for a swim. Join me? I'll probably do a warm up, 8x500 with 30 seconds rest in between, then a cool down.

Jane, I accidently deleted your email so I am posting here and hope you'll see it.

Hi everyone!

Tammy -- Sorry I wasn't able to meet you today at the pool. I did my swimming yesterday morning, and I was out of the house by the time you emailed today.

Well, it looks like we have a little quorum of folks that swim at Chinquapin. Perhaps we should all meet there some day soon so we can at least put names with faces?

Like Tammy, I usually swim during the day (being unemployed at the moment), usually Mondays or Tuesdays in the late morning/early afternoon, but I need to fit another swim session into the week. If it works out for Rebecca and Adriana, I could swing an early evening swim (like in the 5-6 pm range) on some other days, like Wed or Thursday.

Jane

Hi!, I agree we should meet soon. The plan sounds perfect. Can anyone swim tomorrow at 6:15pm? Then after the swim we can go for a short run?
Cheers! Adriana

I can't swim Thursday night - have dinner plans with an out of town friend. But I may stop by to meet everyone. I am 5'8", long reddish-blonde hair, 35 years old.

I'll head over to the pool sometime during the day on Thursday and do an easy, long swim. When I am Chinquapin, I usually tote my DC Tri Club waterbottle around so feel free to introduce yourself. And I wear a red swim cap.

Happy laps!

Tammy

Hi Adriana,

I am having a friend over to dinner tonight at 7 pm, so I would need to swim earlier than 6:15 to get home to shower and be ready in time for her arrival. I think I would need to be in the pool not later than about 5:30 pm...Not sure if that is a possibility for you?

My e-mail is amacos@gmail.com. Can;t wait to meet everyone, Tammy, Jane, Rebecca! Take care, Adriana

I'd like to join a group that meets at Chinquapin too! I am planning on going there tonight after work. I don't swim well--currently do the breaststroke but am getting a workout in, and looking forward to re-learning freestyle. Thanks Tina (tmdb57@gmail.com)

I'll be swimming at Chinquapin on Tuesday (3/31) at a yet to be determined time. Anyone want to get together? Looks like the pool will be crowded after 5 pm with water aerobics, swim lessons and the Marlins taking up most of the lanes. Perhaps a morning or late lunch swim?

I coach the Marlins at Chinquapin and I agree the pool is really crowded on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 5-7:30, but as an FYI we are on spring break for the next 2 weeks (till April 13) so I would think it might be a bit better in the evenings!

have a great swim!

Jane - there's an NTP swim clinic on 4/5 at 9:00 with Sarah Thorpe. Jump on it before it fills up! Go to the NTP forum site and look for the posting.

Great to meet you today!

Tammy
