This week last year was filled mostly with racing news, and what wasn’t racing was related in some way to swimming.
- I offered 9 methods for counting laps in the pool. I usually use the buoys on the lane dividers.
- A revolutionary in the shotput in the early 50s, Parry O’Brien died of a heart attack this week last year while he was swimming in a masters 500m freestyle event.
- This week 2 years ago, I demonstrated how to do pushups, suggested that you ride your bike with traffic, discussed tapering for a 10k, and first learned of the Endurance 50 Challenge. I also continued my thoughts on the New Rules of Lifting with the fourteenth and fifteenth rules.
