3 Brains… & I can’t engage any of them!!!

Thanks to the new DWR’ing coach Natalie Britz who so aptly put it on Tuesday’s session as I struggled to explain part of the session…  Yes I have 3 brains (I’m expecting twins early in 2015), and definitely can’t put any of them to good use…

So it is definitely time to pass the coaching over to Nat!  She will be coaching from Tuesday onwards, however I will be running the final 3 Sunday Sessions from 3-4pm.  Please continue to participate and support AND SPREADING THE WORD about all the benefits of Deep Water Running.

This will be my final Blog post and I would like thank everyone for coming along and enjoying the sessions – it has been great to meet you all and be apart of your training &/or rehabilitation.

I will be leaving you in more than capable hands – Nat’s awesome, inspirational, and she definitely has the results to prove it!

So get yourself along on Tuesday from 5.45-6.45pm and introduce yourself to Nat :).

Thanks everyone!


Jade & the twins …

Shifting to Tuesday on the 21st October

As winter moves to summer, we have to move too.

Tuesday 21st October will be the first session on the summer schedule.  Please note that this will run until either until the end of Term 4 or until I go into labor!

For those of you who have been coming along – thank you!

To everyone who has been spreading the word about Deep Water Running – thank you!

I am looking for someone to take over the sessions, and think we may have found someone, so I will keep you posted.

For those of you who don’t know, I am expecting twins in Late December or Early Jan (fingers crossed no early deliveries!)

I’m not 100 percent what will happen, but have been regularly posting on Facebook if you want to like us and follow what is happening.

Until then – see you Wednesday until the 21st October.

Why do I get to stand on the pool deck and tell you what to do?

It was never my intention to become a Triathlon Coach who specialised in Deep Water Running.  Given the opportunity to still be out there “training the house down’ I would be.  So here is my story on how I have become the Coach and DWR’ing Instructor.

Way back when I first started having hip pain, I was a Remedial Massage Therapist and a pretty hard-core Weekend Warrior Triathlete.  My aims for triathlon was pretty simple – to win a race (as in be the first female across the line – in the age group catergory), to qualify and race at an Olympic Distance World Triathlon and break 5hrs in the 70.3.  I trained hard over years to build up my base and did race in the OD World Champs in Australia, and also completed a 70.3 in 5hr 7mins, and came in the top 10 female AG across the line regularly – won my age group a number of times, but never cracked line honours amongst all the ages.  I’m happy with what I have achieved, but it has left me with a pretty good chronic hip injury.

There is a persistent tear in the Labrum of my left hip socket.  I had surgery once in 2007 and again in 2009.  Having had another MRI following my last surgery it shows that the Labrum is still torn, so I no longer train or race in Triathlon.  Through out my rehabilitation I have used DWR’ing to build up my running strength and coordination, which has worked, plus it was a reliable activity to keep me pain free for longer during big training weeks.

Choosing to give up running on land for a year, I used DWR’ing to maintain my fitness in the hope of another ‘come back’  the following season, but as soon as my training volume and intensity increases my hip would start to ache.  This is when the racing door closed and the coaching door opened.  Already having had experience with many types of injuries with my Massage work, and after the completion of my Tri. coaching accreditation I took over coaching from Claire one of the Physio’s who had been running the sessions  that I was attending.  From then word spread that I could help others learn to DWR, and that is what I’ve been doing since 2010!

I don’t coach for the money, I don’t coach as my full time job, I coach and teach DWR’ing because there is a massive hole in the system in Perth for runners and triathletes who need to learn to train effectively in the water.   It is more enjoyable to join a group than train in the water by yourself, I recognise this and give those with or without an injury the option to join me – THE ONLY DWR’ing SESSION IN PERTH that spends the whole hour dedicated to running fitness!

Currently we have a good solid group training for various events (even childbirth!), and winter is usually the busier time for DWR’ing.  So come along meet some the other participants and you will be surprised at how much of a fun workout it is!

So…  that is my story – and although my Tri Racing door is closed at the moment, its definitely not locked, and I will continue my weekend warrior racing in another year or two :).

If you have had experience with DWR’ing and training for an event, PLEASE leave a comment and share your story with other athletes who are looking to confirm that they aren’t wasting their time in the water…

Hope to see you poolside soon,

Jade Lane
