I tried first time 27 of March at 37 degrees and swam 20 meters and that was awful. I have bee in the water 4-5 times after that, but today was the real premiere when I swam 1200 yards in 50 degree...

There is a nose spray called NASONEX. I don't know who is producing it, but I have used it for the same problems and it works. It contains cortisone, which of course gives you some hesitation, but...

Terry, you know my story. But for others it might be interesting. At the age of 54 and after a total running distance in my life of about 130 000 KM (some 80 000 miles), my body could not take it any...

Sun Yang

Would be interesting to get some professional comments on the 1500 M race in Beijing. I have never seen anything like it. The guy swam with a SPL of 27-28 in a 50 M pool. His final 100 meters, when...

Naj,

Interesting article. Unfortunately we have ice in winter, so the time of the year that we can start is April-May. I was in the first time this year in late April at a temperature of 48 F, which...

Aquarius,

Good question! Using tools cannot be the major part of your swim session. You do it, say 4x100 with a short pause between each, and when you use it, be extremely focused on what you want...

Mempho,

When i watch swimmers facing the problems you have, it looks like they need to focus on staying afloat. This means flat position and lack of balance. Rotation is essential and breathing is...

TI is fantastic, but I have seen a risk when watching friends swimming as they want o go faster. I had the same problem, but when I understood that swimming is a continuous process, I realized that I...

Richard,

How can you go to a swim if you don't travel there. Common, a flight over the Atlantics to join a 1500 meter OW swim in Wales must be worth every penny. If you go, I go!

Terry,

You are such an inspiring person and I am truly glad to have come to know you. I have, as you know, always seen myself as a marathon runner, but injuries put an end to it in 2003. In 2005 i...

Dzhou01, you said "Terry also said that to increase speed by 5%, the drag increases by 25%. So you need to increase your power by at least 25% to overcome the drag. Do you have that 25% more power?...

Hi Terry,
Sometimes I don't get your theories. If you and I race in Masters Class 60-64, which we will later this year, the one of us hitting the finish first is the one swimming at the fastest...

Hi
Nobody is commenting about the wetsuit and the impact it has on the swimming. With the help of the wetsuit she floats. Without one she would probably not be able do swim one lap. I agree, she has...

Kicking and sprinting

Like many less good swimmers, I tend to over kick when I want to swim fast. When I build up the adrenaline before staring a 50 meter free, I automatically tell my body to kick hysterically. I have no...

From where did you get that statement? If you are running and sweating like hell, you still mean that the heat goes out through the head? I believe...
