I swim, therefore I am

Frank D Totten

Swimming is an activity I just like to do. Participation and competition in organized events are good and so is the exercise. But most of all, moving through the water is what I like the best. After years of stroke skills development I am always striving to improve.

I swim at Fort Myers Aquatic Center, FMAC, Florida Gulf Coast University, (FGCU) Aquatic Center mostly on my own with guidance from Coach Chuck Slaght. When rare occasional circumstances require being close to home, I swim at the Catalina lsle Community HOA Pool. More about me...

    Comments:
    • Warmup - Water was really warm.
    • Set 1 - The 150s were harder than expected, really had to work the 3rd 50.
    • Set 2 - Worked on fly drills.
    • Set 3 - Was glad I could descend my pace
