Let me introduce you to FASTER!

In Dryland, Injury Reduction, Periodization by AdminLeave a Comment

As I sit here sipping on my morning coffee, I can’t stop replaying the pure awesomeness that went down at USMS Spring Nationals this weekend!
  • Did you compete this weekend?
  • How did you do?
  • Were you happy with your performances?
  • Did the meet leave you wishing you could’ve done a little better?

One of the highlights for me this weekend, was online athlete Jill Hernandez! Jill has been getting back into swimming form after dealing with some injuries and realizing she was losing strength. She has been training with RITTERSP for a few months now.

Let me tell you, Jill is competitor! At 56-years old, Jill smashed times that some of us only dream of!
