  • While doing distance swimming, I like (?) to dolphin kick off the wall under water a couple of times before getting that first breath. Has made a huge difference in confidence for me on larger days.

  • Swimming has been my go-to for many years to stay in shape over the winter.  But something happened this winter that amazed even me, for what it allowed me to do.
    I had gone to crap over the fall, due to constant work travel and then the holidays.  I wanted to get in shape for a PR strike , so I hit the pool every 2-3 days for a couple weeks leading up to the trip.  Didn't get too fancy with the regimen, some interval work, got up to 1400 yards.  Then - and maybe this is key - I stopped workouts for 4 days until I left.  BAM I was surfing 5 hours a day for 4 days straight, in good waves.  I was shocked cause I'm 48 and it didn't even tear my body apart.  It's actually not that hard to get into shape.
