I am volunteering at IM AZ on this weekend. My shift doesn't start until Sunday evening. My plan is to watch the swim, and then maybe get in a short/easy workout before I get back to the course as a spectator and volunteer. I am running long on Saturday, and not bringing a bike, so I was hoping I could find some place to swim. Does anyone have a suggestion of a pool that has lap swimming on Sunday 10:00 to noonish? I am staying near the airport and don't mind a drive to good facility.

Not sure what else would be open before noon, but you could probably pay a drop in fee at the ASU Rec center. Good pool for lap swimming and would be pretty close (just the other side of campus off Apache).

Yeah, I think it's $10 to pay to get into the ASU Rec Centre pool.

Alternatively you can try LA Fitness on Mill and Southern, as they've got a nice indoor 25 yard pool that I use a lot. They often give out free guest passes to people, and I've always managed to get my visiting friends in for free:

Thanks everyone. I ended up swimming at Cactus Aquatic Center in Scottsdale. Nice facility and I really enjoy and outdoor pool when I can get to one.

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.
