Take a look at a great, short (only 1450 Yards) workout designed for kicking. One of our Cyber-Dynoswimmers, John Eisenschmidt from Virginia, wrote this one and I suggest you all try it!

Have you used your surgical bands today?

You didn't? Why not? Don't you care about your flexibility? No flexibility. No speed. Get it?

Use your bands, everyday.

Dynoswimmers and Goals

Hey Dynoswimmers! As we move into the next phase of our training, I am requesting once again that each of you submit your written goals to Dean or Sheryl by Tuesday, February 21, 2006. I suspect that many of you may have similar objectives as you did six months ago, but I also hope that as our training progresses, you'd be able to better identify the parts of your swim training that need more attention. So, please share your thoughts with your coach and if you'd like to keep your goals private, then please say so.

Quote for the Week of February 13, 2006

"I knew what my times were and how my practices were progressing and how close I was to the goals I had set for the year. I swam hard. I always swam hard. If I didn't, I knew I would pay for it either the next day or the next meet." ~Debbie Meyer

Debbie Meyer (born August 14, 1952 Annapolis, Maryland) won the 200m, 400m and 800m freestyle swimming events in the 1968 Summer Olympics in Mexico City, at 16 years old becoming the first swimmer and first female to win three individual gold medals. Her winning times were 2:10.5 for the 200m, 4:31.8 for the 400m and 9:24.0 for the 800m, all of them new Olympic records. An asthmatic, she also broke twenty world records, which landed her in the Olympic Hall of Fame, broke 24 United States records and won 19 Amateur Athletic Union championships.

In 1969 she was named Associated Press Athlete of the Year. In 1972 she retired from competition. She owns the Debbie Meyer Swim School.

On July 5, 2004 she was inducted into the United States National High School Hall of Fame.

In memory of her Olympic achievement she uses the custom car licence plate 3GOLD68.

Swim laps with your iPod?

Apparently H20 Audio has a new product that offers waterproof housing for your iPod and speaker headset. I wonder if it's cumbersome having it strapped to your body, and how do you prevent getting tangled up in the headset wire while swimming? If anyone has used this product for swimming, I'd love to hear some feedback on it.

2006 World Cup New York

2006 World Cup-phelps-sm.jpgThis past weekend I attended the Fina World Cup finals session at the Nassau County Aquatic Center on Long Island, NY. It was great seeing some of the best swimmers in the world compete. I got to see Michael Phelps come from behind and win the 200m freestyle with a new American Record, and also win the 200m Individual Medley. Tara Kirk, Peter Marshall, and Frederick Bousquet all won their respective events as well. It was amazing to see how flawless and effortless everyone's stroke technique looked, yet they were swimming so fast!

This event will also be televised on Feb. 18 at 5 PM EST, on the Outdoor Life Network (OLN).
