Hi! I'm a completely novice, budding triathlete. I haven't swam in years, and am looking for some basic instruction and coaching in terms of form, technique, and pacing.
Can anyone recommend a coach or classes?
The sunday night CUBU swim at American University (http://www.cubu-masters.org/content/view/7/8/) sounds like it's right up your alley. They're doing beginner, intermediate, and experienced swim sessions with triathletes in mind on some 10-wk schedule for a pretty reasonable price (~$5-8 for dropins I think).
Contact the coach (Frank) and tell him what you're looking for, he'll fill in the details.
I'd be interested in the Sunday evening clinics too. How do I contact the coach (Frank)?
