Surf's Upby gavin on Fri, 09/09/2011 - 14:16.

Today's plan was to do drills and easy swimming.  I guess I should know better when Rolandas is around.  Just as I got to the pool, they were starting a set of 8x 25 sprint kick with fins @ :45.  Since it was too crowed in the lap swim lanes, I jumped in for 5 of the sprint kicks.  It was sure a tough way to warm up... especially since I did them all no-breath!  After that I was definitely ready for my easy swimming and drills!

The Olympic Waveby gavin on Tue, 05/03/2011 - 15:07.

I have no idea what it's like to be an elite swimmer!  However, today a got a taste for speed.... yes, the real speed of an Olympian.  Have you ever ridden a wave?  Well, Rolandas came up with a great idea while hanging on the wall just after swimming a 25 with a stretch cord, ready to swim a 25 fast with the assistance of the cord pulled all the way across the pool.  The mission, ride his wave... who, me! ... the plan, I go first and Rolandas takes off after me... my goal, stay right on his wave as close to him as I can as he's passing.
