With the body clock all at sixes and sevens I was ready to get up at 2am Pacific time so getting up for my first training session with Mountain View Masters Swim Club www.mvm.org was no problem. I met coach Marcelo. It’s pitch black at 5am and not the warmest or coldest. But you don’t want to hang around getting from the changing rooms to the open air pool. I chose the second top lane, just where I was at SilverCity. The pool is set up for yards at present. You get 15 minutes for a warm up then the coach sets out a drill set and then talks us through the main set. It’s tough going.
