Saturday February 25th we are doing the USMS  1-hour swim postal event. You have two options. You can swim this (and only this) at Lucas Valley. We’ll shoot for warm ups from 7-7:25 and close practice at 8:30 sharp. All swimmers must start the 1 hour swim no later than 7:30AM – because of the tight lane space, we need to start everyone at the same time). Or, you can swim at IVC anytime from 9:30-noon. Please note you must start your swim no later than 11 AM as we must exit the facility at noon.

If you plan to do the one hour swim you must arrange for someone to record your splits using split sheets which you can find on the above link from USMS. That person will also need to bring a stopwatch (or can use a smartphone or tablet). Please do not come without arranging in advance for someone to record your splits!  The most an individual should record for is 2 swimmers at one time – anymore than that and too many mistakes happen.

Anyone planning to do the 1-hour swim should notify Marlon (marlon @ swymnutmasters dot com) if you plan to swim at Lucas Valley and Cokie if you plan to swim this at IVC (and let her know what time). Also available at the IVC pool will be a sprint workout that Cokie will be running. Because we  are sharing the pool with other users, you probably better not plan on coming to do your own thing at IVC this particular Saturday. It’s either the one hour swim or a sprint workout (with fins of course!) 😁 


Heads up! February is “Free Friends Friday”. Bring a friend or family member (must be 18+) to our Lucas Valley or IVC pool on Fridays in February and they swim for free! If they have never registered with USMS they will need to complete and bring this form with them: USMS 30-Day Trial Form. Or, if they are registered with USMS, all they have to do is present the coach on deck with their USMS card.


In January and February USMS runs the “One-Hour Postal”. Our team will do this in a couple of offerings toward the end of February – at Lucas Valley and at Indian Valley. So get your distance groove on and up your longer swims to get ready for this event. Click here for a great article on the history of the 1-hour swim and click here for the actual event information.
