|I don't know how much of a testimonial it is, but I've been telling everyone that the only reason my swims have improved this season is because of the few short months working with the Master's this year at Kennedy. Last year's Olympic was at Hy-Vee which was a challenging course with lots of turns compared to the triangular swim at Big Creek this year. |
This summer I really missed the workouts, the structure, the coaching and my swim buddies! I hope it continues!
Thank you. Last year's Pigman Sprint swim: 10:49; this year: 9:37. Last year's Olympic 44:56 (no wetsuit), this year's 34:47. Last year's Pig 1/2; 48:09; this year: 42:20. I bet that if I were able to get to the morning workouts this summer, my times would've been even better. Except for the running, which has been hampered by injuries, I've had a great tri season thanks in part to the joining the Master's this spring. I can actually feel that my swim stroke has improved. Since only learning how to swim five years ago, my swimming has improved tremendously. Nothing beats having a coach on deck to tell you what your doing wrong, to give direction and a regimen.
Thanks a lot, and thanks for volunteering!
