Try Masters and defy time

June 6, 2017

We're approximately mid-way through the June 1st to 11th "Try Masters Swimming Week." You might think this 11 day week is yet another example that swimmers can't count, but I like to think it's yet more evidence that regular swimming allows you to defy time.  But, don't take it from me (I'm biased): check out the science and this sensational story from the Growing Bolder website (a great source for powerful stories of aging with grace, style and impact):

Guys like these are my swimming idols.  I just turned 50 and went through physical therapy for a nagging shoulder over the early part of this year.  When the doctor and the PT asked me what my long-term rehab goals were, it was simple: to be in shape to swim and compete for another 50 years.


In many of the pools I have swum in over the years, I have done so by dropping in to train with a Masters team.  Chances are, there is a US Masters team near your home.  The teams cater to all ages and all abilities.  Check one out and get in the pool.
