03/18/03 CCB Masters practice. This was the team’s introduction to sculling. Whew! It looks so simple and easy, but it is an incredible workout for the hands, forearms, and upper arms. In addition to building arm strength, sculling is great for teaching you how to “hold on” to the water with your hands and forearms.

03/06/03 CCB Masters practice. I coached from in the water today. I’ve had a bronchial bug for the last month, so this was my first time in the water in all that time. The good thing is that my muscles were rested and loose, so I actually felt pretty good. The scary thing is that I’m signed up for a Masters swim meet in 10 days and I realize I have a LOONG way to go to get ready.
