Swim Lingo and Basic Swim Drils
By Janet Rush

This blog post explains swim lingo that is used regularly in masters swim workouts. It is a great idea to get yourself familiarized with these terms so you will know what to do during your swims. I have also included a good article about how to read the pace clock and some great examples of drills to help your technique.
