I just spent five days in Cornwall, NY, as the only adult participant in the Go Swim swim camp.

Old School

By Glenn Mills to Articles | Jun 25, 2004 11:00AM

About halfway through the race, I was thinking "Who's crazy idea was this anyway?" Then I remembered, it was MINE! At our recent Bucknell swim camp, we would have the coaches actually RACE any combination of swimmers at the camp in a 400 medley relay. At least I was smart enough to put in the clause that the relay would be swum as 8 x 50s, rather than 4 x 100s.

Watching a World Champion Train

By Lorry to Articles | Jun 25, 2004 10:55AM

It all started one evening when I heard Nightwish, an awesome Finnish rock band, on Cleveland State College radio. The next thing I know, I was planning a trip to Finland. My plan was to spend three days in Kitee, to see Nightwish at their album-release party. I'd then do some business development in Helsinki, and finish with a vist to the pool where freestyle world champion Hanna-Maria Seppala trains.

Test Set #5

By Susie to Articles | Jun 25, 2004 06:45AM

An Olympic-distance triathlon consists of 1.5K swim, 40K bike, and 10K run. How fast can you run the 10K at the end of an Olympic distance triathlon? If you're like me, you want to know what you're capable of doing BEFORE the race so you know how to pace yourself and what to expect. Thanks to Michelle Blessing, my triathlon coach and coach of the 2000 US Olympic Triathlon Team, here's a challenging test set to help you figure it out.

Test Set #4

By Barbara Hummel to Articles | Jun 18, 2004 06:00AM

If you think it's tricky to figure out how fast to take out your 200 Breast, try figuring out how fast to run the first mile of your next marathon! Sheesh. If you miscalculate your pace for a 200 Breast, the worst that can happen is you die on the final 25 or 50 from too much lactic acid in your bloodstream. You'll have 45 to 60 seconds of PAIN, but you'll probably be able to finish the race. And you'll be able to race again fairly quickly.

In a marathon, however, the stakes are different.

The Power of Focus

By Glenn Mills to Articles | Jun 18, 2004 04:37AM

Here's an email I received from a swim student of mine. It's got me a bit worried. Are my articles SO boring that even the kids can tell I reach sometimes? In any case, I'm always looking for interesting topics, and I appreciate her suggestion. I'll do my best to expand on her observations and experience.

Dave's Pump-Up Mix

By Dave Denniston to Articles | Jun 11, 2004 05:13AM

Ever since the days when it became possible to record your favorite songs onto cassette tapes, the Pump-Up Mix has been a vital part of my swim bag for competition. Sure, times have changed, and my Sony Walkman has been rendered completely useless, as has the Milli-Vanilli/ Michael Jackson mix that once twirled on its double audio prongs. Now, we burn CDs...and when those become obsolete, we'll all just program a Pump-Up Mix folder into our iPods.

Get Smarty!

By Glenn Mills to Articles | Jun 11, 2004 05:12AM

On the first weekend in June, I joined thousands -- maybe millions -- of other TV fans to watch the Belmont Stakes horse race. I was eager to see if history would be made -- if the heavy favorite, Smarty Jones, would become the first Triple Crown winner in 26 years. In a heart-breaking finish, Smarty Jones was passed in the final 70 yards. As the TV cameras scanned the crowd of 125,000 spectators, it seemed like the wind had just been let out of their sails.

I Made It In Swimming World!

By Glenn Mills to Articles | Jun 04, 2004 06:56AM

Growing up as young swimmer, I looked forward each month to a new issue of Swimming World magazine. Long before I even had a chance to be IN the magazine, I'd read about the stars of the sport. I'd read about the Collela's, John Hencken, Shirley Babashoff, and, eventually, started seeing my big brother Kevin's name appear. Seeing your name in Swimming World was like making the BIG TIME!

Miracle

By Glenn Mills to Articles | May 28, 2004 04:59AM

So I finally rented MIRACLE, the story of the 1980 US Olympic Hockey Team. While this may not seem like such a big deal, it was to me. It's hard to explain why I hesitated seeing this movie.

Summer Olympics Tension

By Glenn Mills to Articles | May 21, 2004 05:35AM

An article appeared in the Washington Times online edition this week titled "U.S. Athletes Told To Cool It at Olympics." This article talked about how the USOC is instructing its athletes NOT to celebrate any victories with the show of waving the flag.

Easy Speed - Lead Your Lane

By Dave Denniston to Articles | May 21, 2004 05:33AM

Who really wants to work harder? I mean, sure, you do have to work hard to get rewards. But who wants to? Then again, who wants to swim faster? I do. Everyone I know does. But is there only one way to get faster? Is working harder and putting in more yardage the absolute answer to speed? Nope. While you do have to do those things, I've put together ten ways to get faster without working any harder. It's every swimmer's dream. Here's Idea #10.

Zoomers

By Glenn Mills to Articles | May 21, 2004 05:31AM

It can be dangerous to get set in your ways. Sometimes you just have to TRY something, and it can change your mind. It couldn't have been more than a week ago that I was talking with someone about Zoomers. I kind of dismissed them, saying, "I tried them years ago, and I just didn't get it." So, I never had a pair in my swim bag because I didn't like them... that one time...years ago.

Zoomers

Zoomers are a unique swim fin that utilize patented short-fin technology to promote a shorter, faster kick. They are designed to provide the idea amount of propulsion for perfecting the swimming kick and stroke, allowing for better form over longer periods of time.
