PHOENIX, Arizona, August 15. ONE of the big finals in the Water Cube at the Olympics is the women’s 800 freestyle. The oldest swimming world record, held by Janet Evans in this event since 1989, is likely to be erased.
To commemorate Evans’ remarkable 8:16.22 that she swam at the 1989 Pan Pacific championships, we’re giving you 30 percent off “Janet Evans’ Total Swimming,” a book that offers swimmers great workouts and dryland programs to improve in the pool. That means “Janet Evans’ Total Swimming” is on sale today for only $12.56!
A total of 60 workouts and 12 progressive programs allow you to tailor your swim sessions by distance, intensity, and goal. The gold-medal information also details proper stroke technique, advantages of various gear, concepts such as interval sets and training phases, and making each workout more productive by stretching, building core strength, warming up, and cooling down.
