Swim Swam Swum & January is done by JenniferLeah Posted Tue 01 Feb 2011 12:00am The last several days I (water)logged a lot of time in the pool.  I struggle with my swim-mentally, mostly. I don't feel confidant with my swimming technique and I feel terribly inadequate in the water at times. I will have 2 or 3 consecutive swim sessions where I feel great, strong or zen-like in the water and then Bang! I feel l ... Read on »
Swim Swam Swum by Picky Runner Facebook Posted Sun 12 May 2013 12:25am Well, I did it. I finally got back in the pool on Wednesday morning. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. I could have felt like a drowning cat who can’t swim. I could have fallen in love with the water. Or I could have just gotten in the pool, swam some laps, and got out to carry on with my day. Nothing remarkable happened in this swim. ... Read on »
swim, swim, swim by HappyHealthyRunner Health MavenFacebook Posted Tue 21 Aug 2012 10:08pm I’m having an exceptionally long week at work this week (yes, I realize it’s only Tuesday), and I’m doing a lot of extra work right now on top of my usual work load.

This morning in our coach's weekly email we were told that we should register for the 1 mile swim at the Aqua Challenge at Lake Del Valle in ... Read on »
Just Keep Swimming, swimming, swimming... by Francine R. Patient Expert Posted Wed 20 Oct 2010 7:09pm We roll merrily along as usual. Micah's birthday party has morphed - I got him to narrow his list to about 11 other kids, and I found a decently affordable magician, so we are having it at home. If he really really wants a pinata, it'll be out in the driveway, hanging from the bedroom window. No more dents in my walls, please. Sofia started he ... Read on »
Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming... by Francine R. Patient Expert Posted Thu 09 Feb 2012 9:02pm Nothing really new, honestly. My birthday continued to be wonderful, with a lovely dinner at our favorite restaurant down in Providence, Potenza . Always delicious.

How to actually swim Across the Atlantic Ocean by Roman M. Patient Expert Posted Wed 11 Feb 2009 2:40pm   Jennifer Figge did not really swim across the Atlantic Ocean. There we said it.

Swim, swim, swim! by Kathy .. Healthy Living Professional Posted Tue 22 Jul 2008 8:21pm Today I got up and went to the gym to begin my new swim routine. I picked up a great new bathing suit at TJ Maxx the other day. A Nike for just $20! It worked perfectly. I did half an hour.

Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming... by Francine R. Patient Expert Posted Wed 06 Apr 2011 11:00am Life has been somewhat 'normal' for the Rothkopf clan this past week.
