Words from Coach Mark


The goal of a "feel good" swim is to make the sensations you get
on a hard set feel good, rather than bad. The idea of "feel good" is to experience the sensations you get when swimming hard in a new and non-threatening light.

When you think about it- the only thing that makes a hard set feel bad is when you think it "hurts". The sensations themselves can easily be interesting or even pleasant. When you perceive them as unpleasant, it is because you think they "hurt".

You feel them. They catch your attention. They can be intense. But they don't have to hurt or be experienced as painful if you label them otherwise and understand that there is no impending or actual biological damage. These sensations will signal biological growth through adaptation.

Experience the discomfort as something good. Make it a "feel-good" experience. Seek out these sensations. Make them happen. Notice them. Then, make a point to adapt to this new "feel-good" style in your swimming.

Good luck!

Coach Mark



USMS Winter Fitness Challenge 30 Minute Swim


Nadadores – Here is a great way to have fun and donate to the swimming community.

On Sunday, February 24th at the 8:30am practice, we will be hosting the sponsored by USMS 30 Minute Winter Fitness Challenge.

The 30 minute fitness challenge is just part of the normal 1 1/2 hour workout that Jeff will provide. You don’t have to do anything special at practice. However you do need to sign up on the USMS site and register for the event. A large portion of the $12.00 will be donated the Swimming Saves Lives Foundation.

There is no better feeling than to get a great workout in and at the same time making a small donation to the swimming community.
