    i find the elbow planks can hurt too. I am babying my left shoulder as much as possible and avoid one arm planks for the reasons you mention. The v sits are brutal and I have started adding a twist in the v position which is even harder. I think the key to abs is not getting into a rhythm, i.e. to keep switching it up. That said, it's really tough but I do think a strong core translates to the pool. I will have to try your pulse crunches. Thanks. I hope your finger is getting back to normal.

    Repairing the dryer yourself is very rewarding in many ways. When my husband fixed ours, we found $22 in change and a pair of earings.

    Thanks kk. This one has been a while in the making and hopefully after all the challenges to make it happen we will get a great turnout. Anything you can do to promote it is very much appreciated.

    My next open water is the Waikiki Rough Water Swim in September. It is mostly a vacation but I make all of my vacations SwimCations!
