Warm Pool Water Question Discussed in SWIMMER, the official magazine of U. S. Masters Swimming

The new issue, (November/December 2009, page 15), of SWIMMER, the official magazine of U.S. Masters Swimming, answers a readers question about pool water temperature. His "home" pool keeps the water temperature between 78 and 80 degrees but when he travels, he sometimes swims in pools where the temperatures range anywhere from 84 to 88 degrees. He has a difficult time working out in water that warm and wonders if, "there is something wrong with me?"

The question is answered in depth by U.S. Masters Swimming's Sports Medicine and Science Committe. If you don't have this issue of SWIMMER, you can read their COMPLETE answer on the 2nd page of this linked PDF file -- CLICK HERE to read it. If you can't read the PDF file, just find a fellow swimmer who still has his/her copy of SWIMMER!
