Helping Triathletes Improve Their Swim

Courtesy of Gerry Rodrigues, Tower 26, Santa Monica.

Coach Gerry Rodrigues, "Tower 26's latest 39-minute Be Race Ready podcast series episode #22 on triathlon swimming is loaded for listening."

Rodrigues and co-host Jim Lubinski introduce paraplegic Danny Garcia. "We educate on planning your 2017 season, discuss the final touches of our virtual subscription training program, and answer some good questions. This [pre-season] is the backbone of our year.

I do not believe legs are that important in the swim leg of a triathlon, so I am excited about helping Danny [whose legs are atrophied] achieve his goals as a triathlete."

Garcia learned how to swim in 2015 with his first triathlon race in 2016. As a disabled athlete, he completed three half Ironman distances and two sprint distance Ironmans as a disabled athlete in his first year.

Under his first year of training at Tower 26, Coach Rodrigues asked Garcia to do much of his swim workouts with a pull buoy.

Episode #22: TOWER 26's Be Race Ready series where Rodrigues and Lubinski interview Garcia is posted at iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and at Tower26.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac



An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...
