Breathing While Swimming by Jason B. Facebook Posted Fri 28 May 2010 12:00am As any reader of this blog knows, swimming has been my biggest weakness but I'm getting better and better.  I try to read as much about swimming as possible so that the weakest link becomes just as strong as my cycling and running. Here is a list of articles on practicing breathing, breating efficiently and effortlessly, etc while swimming ... Read on »
In the swim by Judith L. Patient Expert Posted Tue 26 Aug 2008 4:10pm Today, for my aerobic activity, I swam. When I left off swimming last October I was doing 20 laps a day, four days a week. There is no doubt it was helpful for my arthritis. Yet I don't really enjoy swimming and I really dislike having to fight for a free lane. When I went traveling for extended periods I got completely out of the habit. So today ... Read on »
Bella, the Bathing Beauty: “Real” Swimming! by Bella C Patient Expert Posted Thu 08 Jul 2010 12:00am I haven’t written a “bathing beauty” installment in over a year, and it feels great to have something to write about. As you guys know, my dad and I have been swimming daily, and on Wednesday I learned how to breathe while I swim!  My dad is the best swim coach ever, and he said I was a quick learner, so I guess those swimmin ...

Triathlon Training: 4 Mile Run + 5 Mile Bike + Bilateral Breathing Advice by Jeff Irvin Patient Expert Posted Mon 20 Jul 2009 11:24pm Hello everyone! First I want to start off with some advice I received from my buddy Todd. Todd has been doing triathlons for a couple of years now and recently completed a 70.3 (Half Ironman ). I have been tinkering with my breathing during my swimming - which is probably stupid considering my Tri is less than 2 weeks away! But he posted this ... Read on »
Swimming♡ "Get Your Body Wet" by islandgurl Posted Tue 08 May 2012 6:58pm When’s the last time you hopped in the pool for a good workout? The sparkling blue water in that pool is good for much more than relaxing and cooling off. Swimming isn’t just child’s play. Taking a dive into the lap lane is a great form of cardiovascular exercise that can trim pounds and help you maintain a healthy weight. You can burn ... Read on »

Wednesday Workout Update - Why Swim? by Shelley B. Patient Expert Posted Wed 20 Jul 2011 6:00am Far be it from me to push anyone into doing anything they are not comfortable with - I am the poster child for thinking (and thinking, and thinking some more) about it, whatever IT may be - but if you are at all considering, or curious about swimming for exercise, I encourage you to give it a try.  And hey - it's summer - what better time than ...

Week Three, Day One: 40 min Swim + 40 min Run by Jeff Irvin Patient Expert Posted Mon 28 Dec 2009 8:12pm I just realized that I have become, "That Guy!" You know the guy you see walking around in speedos and lycra? Yep that is now me. And the best part is I really do not care because the stuff is so darn comfortable! What got me thinking about this is that I went for my 40 minute run at 7:30 tonight and it was 42 degrees out. I put on my form ... Read on »
Swimming crawl and stuttering by Tom Weidig Posted Mon 29 Jun 2009 12:00am Are you a good front crawl swimmer? My crawl was so lousy when I was at school. My major difficulty was breathing, especially alternating breathing from one side to the other. I constantly choked, and my movements were terrible. Even if I tried to concentrate hard on not choking and relaxing, I would still have this instinctive reaction, ... Read on »
Swim Lessons by Erin Burns Posted Thu 17 Sep 2009 4:47pm So we have finished Swim Lessons for the Summer. This was the first time either girl has had lessons. We've had many fun days at Grandma and Grandpa Graber's pool - but nothing like lessons. No tough love, no making them put their faces in if they didn't want to, and no swimming by themselves! They were always holding on to one or both of us ... Read on »
