Workout: Swim like a Mermaid

Posted by coachlisa on February 6, 2011

With the warmer temps back, I’m sure you are itching for a make-up session for Saturday’s missed class. While we wait to confirm a make-up date, we’ve created a Workout-of-the-week for you along with help from Coach Lina, a former mermaid and currently the Texas State University Triathlon team coach.

Find a pool in the City and get out there and give this workout a try — the focus on drills for balance, high elbows and some fun Speed Play repeats.

We welcome feedback in the comments section on how you liked this one.

Happy swimming,
coach Lisa
