Subject: Looking for a Masters swim group..
Was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on where to find a Masters swim group in North Oakland county? Where I currently swim, they don't seem to have one(that I have found), and I really feel I could benefit from one. Really trying to improve my swim this winter, but have been pretty much going it alone to this point. Any suggestions appreciated, prior to last year I had never done any competitive type swimming. Hope the Michigan forum was the correct place for this question.

Thanks,

Dave

I don't usually visit the Birmingham Y, but I seem to remember they had one the last time I was there. (If that's not north enough for you, is there one up near Rochester way?) Also, I know the Lifetime Fitness clubs have at least one tri group -- I've seen them competing in their Lifetime tri kits, so it stands to reason they have some kind of organized swimming sessions.

I think that Troy and Rochester Life Time Fitness clubs each have a Master's swim program. Troy's location is advertising a swim team. If you go to their class/instruction page you can see when and how much. I remember it being very reasonable. I have no knowledge of how good the coaching/training is.

Dave,

How far north are you looking in OC? I believe BK training systems (Bonnie Karas) runs a masters team at Rochester High School. I would look into that if it isn't too far for you.

I started riding this spring with the Carnac shoes on Look pedals (with plenty of float). About five minutes into a ride I get sharp pain on the outer edge of my feet, just behind the pedal.

Sometimes the best way to master something is to be around people who are masters of it. For non-swimmers - there is the Master’s Swim group.

Work your weakness. In the sport of triathlon, most coaches agree that you should spend the most time working on your weakest of the three sports. For many of you this will be swimming!

The start of the race I had the jitters. I was watching the other age groups start as they seeded the swim with over 1000 participants.

Most of us in the triathlon world are concerned with more than just fat burning. There are certain situations when it’s appropriate to use fins during a workout.
