Words that Caught My Eye

"Shine a light through their ear. If light comes out on the other side, odds are they’re up to the task.” ~ Ed Whitlock

Gear that is Cool

In the land of watches that track data, it is rare to see one specifically targeted at swimming and swimming alone. Enter Swimmo. This single sport watch offers you everything you need to make sure your swimming sets are keeping up with your plan targets.  The Swimmo tracks your Laps, Distance, Pace/Speed, Duration & Time. It also tracks your HR during swimming, fat burning zones and calories burnt. Still not convinced? The watch also provides different vibration intensities for real time feedback to either pick up the pace or slow down. At $199 USD it seems a little pricey, but when you think that heart rate straps alone for pool use range between $100-$140 USD, it might be worth a look.

Stretch of the weak

Happy Training!!!!!
