Record Breaking Team
We now have current TEAM RECORDS for Short Course Yards (SCY), Short Course Meters (SCM) and Long Course Meters (LCM). You will notice that there are a lot of NO NTEX RECORD entries.  This just means as of this date for the various 5 year age groups we do not have a recorded swim on file. If you know of an existing swim you did as a member of NTEX and we do not have a time listed for you please let me or Elaine Disney, our TEAM RECORD keeper, know the circumstances.

MY USMS/FITNESS LOG (FLOG):
Fitness Logs (FLOGs)
U.S. Masters Swimming has released a new online service that is available exclusively for our members. Members may now track their swimming and other fitness activities via our new online Fitness Logs (FLOGs) tool. With this exciting new online service, you can log a wide variety of fitness activities such as swim workouts, running, weights and yoga on your flog calendar and track your weekly, monthly and annual totals online.  Members who are participating in the popular 'Go The Distance' fitness event will also enjoy the convenience of having the data from their flog automatically included in the monthly event reports.
 
NIKE Go The Distance 2014:
In the past four years, GTD has become the fastest growing USMS program. GTD is a self-directed program intended to encourage Masters swimmers to regularly exercise and track their progress. There is no time limit for the distance milestones, except that they must be achieved in the calendar year 2014. Speed does not count - just the effort to attain whatever goal you set for yourself.

GTD is on the honor system - you track the distance you swim. You enter that information into your online Fitness Log (FLOG) - see previous paragraph. When you achieve certain milestones, ranging from 50 miles through 1500 miles, you will be recognized on the U.S. Masters Swimming website, in the monthly e-newsletter STREAMLINES, and receive special prizes from the title sponsor for the event, Nike Swim.

There is no cost to enter GTD. You may register for GTD through your FLOG in the My USMS section of the website. Even if you were entered in 2013 you must enter again in 2014 (after January 1st). Just click on on your FLOG and at the top of the monthly calendar will be a link to register - it literally takes one click to sign up for GTD. Once you've entered GTD, your results are automatically included in the daily summary reports.
