Welcome to the first quarter of DC Triathlon and Wave One Masters Swimming Program.
A quick introduction to the co-leaders, Jule Miata and Catharine Myung, and the coach, Denis Crean.
Julianne Miata has a strong swimming background, swimming year round since the ripe ole age of 8! She swam competitively in high school and then in college for Washington & Lee University. She brings experience to the table developing swim workouts and providing stroke critique, having once been an assistant coach and a private lessons instructor for summer swim programs.
Catharine Myung has been engaged with our other club programs including NTP and ODTP as a participant and is now eager to give back to the club. Catharine brings a strong background in event planning and program management.
Denis Crean who is the president and brain child behind WaveOne Swimming. Denis is an avid open water swimmer and competitor, with a very notable race record. Denis' approach to coaching has led him to be one of the top coaches of choice for DC's open water swimmers and triathletes.
We had a great first practice on Wednesday. The group was divided up into 2 groups – those that have comfortable with lap swimming and those that wanted more experience with it. The faster group was immediately set off to do a tough set of 400’s and 6-50’s that went progressive faster with co-leader Jule watching the clock and giving out pointers as needed. The other group was given drills to work on their form in 25 meter chunks before they were set off to do 100’s by Coach Denis. By the end of the hour, everyone felt like they had a good workout.
