"Susie had no talent whatsoever. She's a little person who couldn't even make a final at a state meet - coming and showing the world that on sheer guts and determination you can do anything you want!"

~Susie Maroney's coach Dick Caine, after her 200 kilometer marathon swim from Mexico to Cuba.

Swimmers and Triathletes

For those of you yearning for some longer sets, distance / middle distance work, we'll be spending the next few weeks working on endurance. Yesterday we did a slew of 400s and today we did our fair share of 800s; 4600 yards in total for Tuesday's workout.

So bring your crinkled up buck, and come to practice. This Friday, we'll be doing some IM work with Sheryl. On Saturday, we'll be back to the theme for the next few weeks (or until we can get back in the ocean for some open-water training), that theme being endurance freestyle.

Swim Across the Sound, cont.

First I would like to say THANK YOU to everyone who donated to Swim Across the Sound. Our team "Westport Swim Club Lane 3" fundraised over $8,000 to benefit the St. Vincent's Medical Center cancer charity. As for the swim across Long Island Sound "it was the closest finish in the history of the race" as spoken by race director Dave Parcell's. Our team and the Westport Water WRATS team swapped holding the lead several times during the 15 mile trek across the sound. We ended up finishing just over a minute behind the 3 time defending champions in 5 hours, and 49 minutes. The conditions for the swim were just about perfect with little chop, no jellyfish, and lots of sun! Your donations and support will go a long way in helping with the battle against cancer. Again thanks for your support and generosity.

Sabotage a Swimming Career

Please read the following article written for swim parents, but which is also applicable at every level (Masters included) of swimming. We can ruin our swimming careers by having unrealistic expectations of what success and failure in the pool actually means. Swimming Sabotage

Triathletes and Swim Training

Just wanted to reinforce some points you've probably heard from a few swim coaches before. If you want to be a fast swimmer, then you have to train like a swimmer; makes sense. Train Like a Swimmer

Backstroke Tip - Aggressive Hand Entry

Check out this helpful backstroke tip courtesy of Swimming World Magazine.

"A common technique error in backstroke is letting the hands enter too softly. If the hands enter too softly and "sit" on the water, your body rotation will be slowed down, and there is a tendency to overreach on the entry."
