1 shower after masters swimming...
1 shower after teaching swimming...
1 bath because I was cold....before bed!
And all of that within 10 hours! Yep, that's how I roll...I prefer baths if I can! And no...I don't take ice baths...not my thing! That was one nice thing about Vegas, the BIG bathtub that I could soak in. I'm always ticked with my friends who have big tubs and say things like "Oh, I never use it"! Are you kidding me? Why did you buy that house then? Ok, I know there is more to a house than the bathtub! Loren and I always say that our next house HAS to have a big tub! Why don't you use your big tub? Why...please use it for those of us who can't?
|Um, yah this would be PERFECT! You think these people use their tub? Yah...I think so!|
|And yes...Starbucks too!|
In other, more important, useful news...
One of the reasons I love blogging is because of all the people you meet through it! Well maybe "Meet" isn't the right word, but you get to know people from their blogs and comments, which is FANTASTIC! If you are lucky you actually do get to meet some face-to-face!
I found Carole's blog recently HERE and she happens to be a triathlon coach...SWEET! I have found a lot of new triathlete blogs...it's been awesome. Isn't blogging great! So much great advice, feedback and encouragement in the blogging world, it's full of some AMAZING resources! It's the best! Carole was sweet enough to email me some great YOUTUBE video's on swimming! Thanks Carole for the links!
Thought I would pass them on to you...
This is the first video to watch to help eliminate the "dropped elbow" -- the #1 problem most swimmers experience. Look how Karlyn helps you get the high elbow and the "catch". Use of the vasa trainer or simply using a flat bench at the gym with soup cans in your hands can be helpful:
Then this video for catch up drill. I like this for 1-arm drill visuals too:
Maybe they will help you too. I have never even thought of using youtube for video's on swimming? I tried to work on this during my swim workout...very useful! I love that people take the time to send you helpful and useful information! Thanks Again, Carole!
- Do you prefer baths or showers? That's not weird to ask? or is it?
- Have you ever used YOUTUBE for tip and/or tricks with something? Maybe even a workout?
I do remember one time locking the keys in our office and I checked youtube out for a video on picking a lock, very useful! You never know what you will find on the Internet!
