Main Set Wednesday - TAKE IT OUT!

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Jun 27, 2013 01:31PM

Sometimes you have to be brave when you're swimming a race. Sometimes coaches have to demand that you're brave. Either way, taking out a race FAST is a good skill to learn.

By Glenn Mills to Silver (Intermediate) | Jun 21, 2013 08:01AM

The kids team did a very challenging set last week of decreasing interval 100s, down to 1:00 / 100. No reason not to let the masters into the fun.


Swimming with Waits

What Is Practice for...Really?

By Glenn Mills to Motivational Articles | May 30, 2013 09:15AM

Over the past couple weeks, I've had numerous conversations with young swimmers about when they have the opportunity to make effective changes to how they swim.


All Strokes - Change-of-Direction Relays

By Glenn Mills to All Strokes (IM) | May 07, 2013 06:00AM

Swim training has a bit of monotony built in to it, so when there's a chance to break from routine, it's good to combine some athletic moves into the fun.

By Glenn Mills to Gold (Advanced) | Apr 19, 2013 08:11AM
