Swimmers new to Masters, please check out the “Go the Distance” event on usms.org! (click on arrow in header).
Go the Distance in 2014 Nike GTD is a self-directed program intended to encourage Masters swimmers to regularly exercise and track their progress. There’s no time limit for the distance milestones, except that they must be achieved in the calendar year. Speed doesn’t count—just the effort to attain whatever goal you set for yourself. Nike GTD is on the honor system—you track the distance you swim. Daily, weekly, or monthly, enter that information into your online Fitness Log (FLOG). When you achieve certain milestones, you’ll be recognized on the U.S. Masters Swimming website and receive special prizes from Nike Swim, our title sponsor for the event. There’s no cost to enter Nike GTD. You can register through your FLOG in the My USMS section of the website. Your FLOG allows you to track all your fitness activities—such as running, biking, weight training, and yoga—while participating in Nike GTD. Track your weekly, monthly and annual totals online. Once you’ve entered Nike GTD, your results are automatically included in the daily summary reports, and your milestone awards are sent directly to you. Enter Go The Distance Now! I
