Worked on starts with a young woman in our masters group. She has been swimming for four months now and has a meet in June, but she has been losing her goggles on the starts. I had that trouble a lot, so I tried to help her. She started to get the hang of it. We did about 10 starts and a couple of breakouts.

175 easy free/back

2700 yards

Notes: I mentioned this on Monday, but I am horrible when there's no coach. I'm going to struggle in Europe unless I can find a team with a practice schedule convenient for me. Or if I can convince Elisa to coach me!!! On a brighter note, my breaststroke felt pretty good. It was kind of slow, but it felt good.

    If you want, I can ask Bill White, our coach, to put you on his email list. He sends out the practice for A,B, and C lanes 3x a week. Not as good as swimming with others, but they are good workouts.

    TJ if she's still having goggle issues...cap over goggs pulled low over the top edge will keep them in even on a bad dive.
