Aquasol - no Coach Janine
Coach Todd on anti-drown watch (he's busy with the kids)
I didnt have time to research a workout so I grabbed Tom's.(Thanks Tom, great workouts and inspiration)
(as you can tell, Im not very popular around here, I average 0 comments: due to slow
times, stealing workouts and generally whinning all the time. )
I know we have some very fast swimmers in the Pacific LSC, so
it would be awesome to see one or two blog here.

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.
