Infinite Swim

When it comes to triathlon swim training, what's the hardest part?  Often it’s finding a lap pool to train in? For some it’s being able to train while traveling on business. It's not easy doing a swim workout in a small hotel pool, and that is where the Infinite Swim comes in to play. 
Infinite Swim has the solution and can turn any size pool into a pool for training.

Infinite Swim comes with an adjustable waist belt, which hooks onto a bungee cord. Set the Infinite Swim frame on the side of the pool. Fill the water weight with pool water or a hose if nearby. The jets in the pool will help fill the weight faster if they are running. Place the water weight, now weighing 35 pounds filled with water, on the frame and your good to go. 


Ease into the pool and don’t push off the side. Float out away from the side of the pool until the bungee cord is pulled tight. Now just begin swimming. Work on drills or use any swim stroke, without worrying about getting caught in any cables or ropes. The Infinite Swim set up provides 25 pounds of resistance.  Who is this device for you might ask? The Infinite Swim can be used by amateurs or competitive swimmers and will provide a perfect swim training workout. Never miss a swim workout for those who often travel, as it folds small enough to fit in carry-on suitcase. 

This device is also great or those triathletes who train and need or want to video themselves and their swim stroke. Staying in place, you can capture video from the side of the pool or even under the water with a GoPro. For instance in a freestyle stroke, you can look back and see, is your hand entering the water or exiting the water in right place to get the most out of your stroke. Often a swim coach or triathlon coach, if being coached from online, will ask to see footage of you swimming. They are wanting to analyze your stroke to make you more efficient. 

I’ve used the Infinite Swim in a pool as shallow as three foot deep as well as eight foot deep, it still works the same. Once again,  just don’t jump in while attached to the device. Ease into the pool and slowly swim away from the side. Now of course you won’t get a distance training workout in, but you can still time yourself. You still get the same motion you would as if you were swimming laps but added bonus of not having to do flip turns to keep going.

So you've seen how it works, now you need one.

TraxFactory’s Hot Sockee’s, Keep Your Toes and Feet Warm

Keep your toes warm inside your cycling shoes.

There is nothing worse than being cold, let alone your feet or toes. Hot Sockee’s are the answer.  They really don't take up that much room inside your shoe. Thinner than wearing an extra pair of socks and just like socks, the neoprene is washable.  I would not place in the dryer but let air dry. 

Winter rides are here and heres the perfect way to keep your toes from getting cold while out riding. 
I am not a fan of cycling shoe covers, they seem to be a hassle to put on. If you like to switch up your riding from road to mountain bike trails, you have to purchase a separate set of covers for each type of riding shoe. Not so with TraxFactory’s Hot Sockee’s. These neoprene foot/toe covers slip on over your sock, then you slide your foot into your road cycling or mountain bike shoe and your off. They allow your feet to breathe yet keep out the drafty air rushing through the front of your shoe. Order the correct size for your shoe size. They will extend from the tip of your toes to about just past your foots arch.

2017 is here. Many things I want to accomplish.

Over the holidays I took some much needed time off to spend with family and friends. Relaxed and started some planning of my year ahead.  2017 is here and I have many things this year I want to accomplish.  I have put in place a strength program I hope to build on.  I have done the program before and looking forward to take it to the next level.
