times, stealing workouts and generally whinning all the time. )

I just needed some distance and no fly for just one day.

My coach, Janine, who taught me backstroke, breaststroke, how to turn, when NOT to breath
and the proper way to fly, has been going through some very tough times lately...Appendicitis, and losing both parents this year...
Although my coach isn't a world class-collegiate-olympic star, my Coach is a star in my life...Giving, kind and patient, has taught hundreds of children and adults how to swim, who's "happy spot" is coaching young children and teen's (and whinning older adults). She give's me the option to give it all I got or just make the interval, plus with constant stroke correction and modifing the workout based on my times, has turned a aging man, into an aged grouper!
So, Ive been diligent lately to get in 2 solid gym days a week and 5 morning pilates/stretching when I wake up, plus at least 3 swim workouts in. Im focused on the upcoming short coarse season in my new aged group.

    Good workout, nice distance, I have a hard time getting water time to get that much distance in.

    Of all the coaches I have experienced, Janine seems to have the intuition that's more than a "posted workout" coach.

    I often spend weekends at my sister's home just outside Sacramento. I treked over to the Sierra Marlins pool recently to check it out.... Most of our bloggers would die for a facility like it!

    I'm hoping to drop in to one of their workouts soon.
    Let's connect and try to swim a technique session together!

    The Folsom (Lembi Aquatic Center) pool is really awesome, the water temp is constant year round. During the summer open rec swim (or kiddie time) they have 2-3 lanes just for lap swimmers, and a lap swim session before the kiddie session. http://www.folsom.ca.us/depts/parks_...uatic/fees.asp
    Saturday mornings they have Master workouts (Seniors take 4 lanes, Master's take 4), they alternate between SCY and LCM. Let me know in advance and I can meet you there someday.
