    Definitely nice media coverage and some nice shots of the facility for 2011 Nationals. Anyone who's ever had the privilege to swim with Paul and Laura knows that they run great, high energy, high "swim content / technique" workouts. They definitely have a great program already and it's only bound to get stronger. Check out their ambitious meet schedule this spring on www.mesamasters.com!

    this is fantastic, and great to know about. I'll be out in AZ again in March to see some Spring Training baseball, and while I don't have a group setting here in Illinois, I may try and drop in on a few of these practices if the timing works out well

    There are workouts at two pools (including Kino) during the week. Normally there are three workouts per day (morning, noon, and evening) plus weekend practices. Stop by, the City of Mesa has done a fantastic job of upgrading their facilities and the Smiths have a great team.

    Plus, the pool is not far from Hohokam Park where the Cubbies play...

    Doug,
    Thanks for letting me know! Depending on what we're doing each day, workout timing will likely vary, so glad to know that I'm set. I'm "team-less" in central Illinois, so am not used to standard practices the way I used to be. Many thanks for the inside scoop!!!

    Q: Is there anything you got playing HS water polo that helped you in baseball?
    Evan Longoria:There are a lot of things that translate… Swimming is probably the best cardio workout you can do.

    It is a great facility, if you're there in the morning you may see me.

    Since you're from Sweden, do you know Camilla (Johansson-Sponseller)? She was a coach at ASU but moved back there. I know it is a big country, but swimming is a small world.

    I live here, but I am not from here I'm as American as they come.

    Camilla is our team's new head coach, and the reason we are coming to Arizona

    the two of us are hoping to get in an early workout before the kids swim. so I'm sure will meet up one of those days. For me it will be a great chance to get in a week of swimming before I start my harder work out schedule for a few OW races and Worlds

    I see you are in Chandler, I am hoping to get time to go eat at the Heart Attack Grill, atleast once before we leave.
