Where I train ? Part One: Swimming

I thought it would be a good idea to share my training spots with the blog world. Firstly the above photo is where I mainly swim, a High School in Arlington called Washington-Lee. I live just over a mile from the pool so it is easy to get to. Arlington County just built the new pool in July of 2009 to replace the basic but working old one. For everyone in Ireland this pool is at a secondary level school. Crazy right ! Its open to the public from 5:30am-9pm M-F (with a mid-day break), Sat 6am-7pm and Sun 11am-6pm. So lots of hours to get the work done and the cost is pretty good too. For me the best way to swim is use the buddy system of training. That is were you agree to meet someone to train with, this way you are guarantee that yourself and your training partners put in a solid workout and stick to the plan. This morning I swam with Mindy and Jessica both on Team Snapple. My main swimming buddy is Zac.


  1. W-L is totally sweet! Let me know if you want to get in a swim workout sometime! I am alllll about the buddy system.

  2. I'm there a few days a week now between training clients and my own workouts. I'm sure I'll see you there or at the track next door this week!

  3. I'd love to have a pool like that but, its such foreign territory for us that I doesn't really matter, they are all the same!
