Tri Swim Workouts
Thanks to everyone who picked up a set of waterproof drill cards last week during the launch! Hopefully, you’ve received yours by now and are putting the drills and workouts to use. If you did pick up a set, let me know your thoughts when you get a chance…just shoot an email to [email protected]
If you missed the product launch special, we still have a few sets left in the first round. They are at a higher price, but you can still get a discount by getting all three items- The Triathlon Swimming DVD, Complete Guide to Triathlon Swimming and Waterproof Drill & Workout Cards.
BTW, today here in the U.S. is “tax day”, where many working Americans get their hard-earned money taken from them. If you are one of these folks and this is a stressful time for you, I suggest going for a nice, long swim! There is no reason to let finances affect your health negatively, and the water has a therapeutic affect, especially if you are doing a workout.
Check out the one I have included below to de-stress and improve your health.
