My Team
I swim on a small team (Madison Titans) with 4 regulars and a couple others that can't make the morning workout. On Saturdays and occasional weekdays, I drop by HSA in Huntsville for a swim in the big pool.

  1. 08.24.13 - Saturday workout, catching up

    by , August 25th, 2013 at 10:22 AM (Pete's swim blog)
    Swam w/ Dave, Dave, Dave and Bob Saturday at the Huntsville NAT. Sam headed back to school Friday. We will probably get a couple high school swimmers looking for doubles next week. It has been a decent week. I'm getting used to 5k/day again. Backstroke is improving but still weak. Some of my breaststroke changes are starting to pay off as well. I'm getting my hips forward and hands out faster which is helping me set up a longer glide.
