I really enjoy swimming in the morning

I really enjoy swimming in the morning.  The cold water is sure to wake you up.  Often I swim next to people that seemed to be struggling with their stroke.  It takes everything I can muster to resist offering unsolicited advice.  I know it is bad manners to offer advice that was not asked for but I have to admit it’s hard sometimes.  I just try to focus on my workout and keep my lips sealed.  I was dying to offer them a flier for my upcoming Swimming for Triathlons Clinic but didn’t want to seem pushy so I refrained.  Once a coach- always a coach, right?

Swimming is all about technique that is for sure.  I am glad to report that my stroke is getting better and I am swimming faster and more efficiently.  Swimming is very enjoyable to me because I know where to put my energy to improve.  That is not something I could say when I first started.  What a difference that makes!  What a great way to start out the day.  http://www.facebook.com/BlondeRunnerLoraErickson
