I will be in Plano for the next week or so. Does anyone have any favorites/recommendations for a public pool to put in some volume?

I don't have any experience at any of these pools because I swim at my gym. And I realize you could probably find this info with a google search, but thought I would save you the trouble if you haven't already. From what I've heard, Oak Point and Tom Muehlenbeck Center are nice and they're kind of on opposite ends of the city (within Plano) so one is likely nice....I believe those two centers are where the Plano masters club meets. Enjoy your week in Plano!

I've used three pools from the Plano Recreation Centers.  Oak Point and Tom Muehlenbeck are full rec centers with good 25 yard lap lanes and allow a $6/day drop in rate.  The Plano Aquatic center is just a pool with 25 yard lanes and a $3/day rate.  I've had no problem with any of these three pools and usually get a lane to myself or split a lane.

On the list you might see Jack Carter pool.  It's an outdoor pool and the 50 meter lap swim is only in the early morning for Masters.  After that time it's a leisure pool but does have lap swimming if you want ~23 yard lengths (it's <25 yards for some reason).

May also be worth checking out the Allen Natatorium. It always has at least two lanes open in their 50-yard lap pool for guests for $5/day.

I went into the pool area (as this was a pool swim) and got body marked. That's when it hit me that I was there to race - this was not a clinic.

The DVD assumes little-to-no experience with competitive swimming and starts off in the pool citing the need to build confidence in a controlled environment.

When I swim I struggle to get a full breath and consequently run down faster. I spend part of my training on the side of the pool gasping for air.

Most of us belong to groups and there will always be pressure to keep up. It may be underlying or it may be outright, but no doubt, that pressure to go faster is always there.

As a triathlete, there is one acronym that you just can’t fathom ever having next to your name in a race report – DNF: DID NOT FINISH.

Once you caught your breath, it occurred to you that finishing even a short triathlon might be harder than you thought. After a few "laps" you thought, "I can't believe I'm so out of shape."

Good swimming is relaxed swimming. Relaxed swimming depends on practicing the best techniques and the best body position.
