Swimming laps for two is par for course for mum

SWIMMING: This week's swimming article is the second of nine in Friday editions highlighting the many different types of swimmers who head regularly to WIRAC.

All are there for different reasons but the bottom line is they want to be fit and healthy.

Bec Rogers has been a regular at WIRAC for the first eight months of pregnancy.

She and husband Nathan have a two-year-old daughter Grace and are expecting their second child next month.

"Swimming is good during pregnancy as it is a nice gentle low-impact exercise,” she said.

"My obstetrician and GP are supportive on my swimming.”

She stressed that each woman who plans to swim during pregnancy should discuss it with medical staff and admitted she has competed in triathlons so laps are not a shock to her system.

"I swim about 1.5 kilometres a session in about 45 minutes,” Bec said.

"Swimming is really good, especially in the later stages of pregnancy when running is not advised. Swimming and cycling are good options.

"I cycle 30km a week, Nathan beats me in cycling but I usually beat him in swimming.”

She went on leave as a PE teacher at Warwick High earlier this month after swimming in the Cunningham Teacher's Team at the school carnival.

"I was a bit upset Nathan beat me for the first time in a swim,” she said.

"We are involved with different houses but swam the same relay leg. I am in Cunningham and we won while Nathan is in Barnes House.”

Bec said she usually headed to WIRAC in the mornings to swim laps while her husband looked after Grace.

"Grace had her first lesson at WIRAC at six months of age, pool safety is paramount. She loves the water.”

Bec and Nathan run Rogers Sports Coaching, with up to 50 athletes in a track and field squad, many of whom made it to state championships in 2017.
