Championship meets are an excellent way to motivate yourself in training and to interact with people that you don’t normally see. Three SCY championship meets always seem to get plenty of interest from LMSC members.
Many LMSC members are choosing to “opt out” of the The Wet Gazette newsletter mailing list, since all our newsletters are also available electronically in PDF format.
An under-appreciated aspect of racing is adopting the proper pace strategy. Swimming Science has posted a series of articles, Pacing 101 for Swimmers, that present the optimal pace strategy and the physiological reasoning behind it.
Not that interested in competition or travel? Then perhaps postal events are for you: you can compete in your own pool with an audience of your choosing. One great event is the Check-Off Challenge, which lasts all year.
A new year is often a time for re-dedication and goal setting. A nice post on the Feel for the Water blog explains how both short-term and long-term goals set at the proper difficulty level can help us get into “the zone.”
Results for the 3000/6000 Postal National Championships have been finalized. There were 19 swimmers from our LMSC who participated in at least one of the postal events, including four stalwarts who did both events.
The January 2013 edition of the LMSC Newsletter, The Wet Gazette, has been uploaded.
VMST is looking for sponsors for the 2013 LCM Colonies Zone Championship meet that will be held in Richmond on June 22-23. This will be a premiere event, held at the Collegiate School Aquatics Center, which houses the pool used for the 2008 US Olympic Trials.
The Virginia LMSC will soon be submitting times for Top 10 consideration for the SCM season; please inspect the Top 10 submissions previews for Individual and Relay events and let us know if there are any errors by January 15.
