5.4. Where can I find a place to train?

Most suburban areas have pools available for lap swimming. The YMCA
and health clubs are a good place to start. Many areas have city
recreational centers that also offer lap swimming. Often local high
schools or colleges will have a lap pool, call and ask if they allow
public use.>/p?

If you don't know about any in your area, US Masters Swimming offers a
searchable list of swim locations at
http://www.usms.org/placswim/search.php

A great international list can be found at
