by Tex Doherty

Up for a Challenge?
Coach Tex Doherty of Four Corners Aquatic Team Masters designs workouts specifically for Cathy Tibbetts and her training partner, Jenny Nuuttila, both of who are preparing for longer-distance swims. Each week features pace work (shorter repeats) and distance swims (progressing from 1,800 to10,800 yards).
