Back to the Beginning

Summer league swimming is a great starting point for anyone who wants to get involved in the sport of swimming.


05/11/05 20-Yard-Pool Taper Practice

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 12, 2005 02:17PM

I usually do warmup with fins, but since we won't be allowed to use fins or equipment at the Masters meet next week, I'm trying to use them very selectively during taper, and am not using them at all for warmup. I need to develop a no-equipment warmup that feels right.


05/10/05 CCB Masters Phelps Workout Again

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 10, 2005 12:04PM

There's been some discussion about this workout on the goswim.tv discussion board, so I thought I would give the workout to my Masters swimmers again this morning. It is deceptively hard, and will make you work hard, especially if you have great lanemates to keep you digging a little deeper. The main event of this practice is the 500 yards that you do while descending the pyramid. Everything else should be treated as a long warmup toward those 500 fast yards.


05/10/05 Breaststroke Taper

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 10, 2005 11:54AM

OK. Timt to start cranking and getting serious about SPEED. Masters Nationals starts next week on the 20th. Today I wanted to swim each of my breaststroke races twice, and descend my times on each swim.


05/09/05 Breaststroke & Im Practice

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 09, 2005 03:06PM

Did this in a 20-yard pool

05/05/05 CCB Masters IM Practice

05/04/05 Breaststroke Tether and Kick

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 04, 2005 11:28AM

Did this practice in a 20-yard pool.


05/03/05 CCB Masters Freestyle Scramble

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 03, 2005 11:05AM

Our Masters team is having growing pains. This is good because we have a lot of great new members. But's it a scramble because we have only 3 lanes for our morning practices, and 4 maybe 5 at night. Today we had three lanes for 15 swimmers ranging from true beginners doing drills only...to seasoned vets. It was amazing to see how well everyone adapted to 6-in-a-lane swimming.


05/02/05 Breaststroke Practice with Equipment

By Barbara Hummel to Group (Mixed Levels) | May 02, 2005 09:26PM

Was in NYC this weekend, and had another chance to practice at Asphalt Green -- short-course this time. This practice is 2500 yards. If you wanted to bump it up by another 800 or 1600 yards, you could do the main set a third and fourth time, switching the equipment around so that you did each segment (1 X 200...2 X 100...4 X 50...4 X 25) with a different piece of the equipment each time.


Coming Home

Sometimes the final yards of an ocean race can seem longer -- or more difficult -- than the mile (or whatever distance) you've swum. The swimming was easy...it's trying to get to the beach that's daunting. For me, the quickest way to get into shore is to hitch a ride -- or bodysurf -- a wave to the beach. Of course you can take advantage of this only when the tide is right and there are waves to ride. But bodysurfing is a lot faster than swimming to the beach. Plus, you get to rest while the wave brings you to shore. If you're not proficient at bodysurfing a wave, here's how to do it.
