December 1 we start a new swim challenge. It's the Tower 26 Challenge, acknowledging a new masters swim program started by Gerry Rodrigues, domiciled in Pacific Palisades. Gerry was the long time head of the UCLA Masters program, and now incepts Tower 26
in Pacific Palisades. If you're a West L.A. person, Gerry is the best masters / open water coach I know (in addition to being a top notch open water competitor himself).
Now, the Challenge! You'll find it here
This isn't hard. 33,333 yards per month. But, that's through Christmas, pools close, it's the flu season, it's dark, it's cold, it's scary. So, maybe it's not so easy after all!
Two more Winter-long challenges are coming, but, these will be bike-specific, and points-specific. prizes will be awarded.
