Open Water Wednesdays
Wed June 19, 2024 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm$25
OWW’s are popular coached open water swim workouts at Lake Meridian Park in Kent, WA that have been happening since 2006.
Participants will swim around a 300 yard buoy course in groups of similar-pace swimmers. Coach Mike Murphy will be in a kayak at the start buoy coaching an interval workout with OW skill practice during each workout. The swims combine the fitness-building benefits of interval workout in a pool and open water swim practice.
A second coach will be near shore in a kayak working with newer open water swimmers on specific skills and helping you get acclimated. Her goal is to get you trained up and out on the buoy course with the main group as quickly as possible.
Open Water Wednesdays are a great workout for any open water swimmer – you’ll get valuable fitness training and can practice open water skills like sighting, turning at buoys, and swimming close to others. This workout has the full spectrum of swimmers – from newbies to some of the fastest swimmers in the area. You’ll fit right in!
