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...

    Warm down: 100 EZ

    • Felt ok in the water, but not great, stroke still feels awkward swimming at a faster tempo.
    • Set 1 - Kick/Swim set
    • Set 2 - First two rounds felt tired, but the last three rounds were slightly faster, and with seemingly lighter effort.
    • Set 3 - Would like to start going under 30 as easily as I did last April/May
    • Warm down - glad to be done, not a great session, just need to keep at it.
