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.

    100 Easy
    Kind of disappointed w/ the breaststroke. I've changed my pull and while it seems easier, I don't appear to be faster. My shoulders are a lot more sore than usual so I'm hoping that developing more strength will improve the speed eventually.
