Oftentimes I am in a hotel with a small pool.  Any suggestions on how
to get a workout in one of these?

TIA,

MK

May I just say one thing? Those pools are *so* ***y *hot*! I also had to
workout over the summer several times in a so-called "fitness" pool in
quite a s***y hotel---*remember* to stay hydrated, okay? Take a bottle of
water with you and don't neglect to drink enough of it.

In different magazines I have seen training bands.  The bands allow you to
train in a small area, they prevent you from moving.  Just a thought.

Try verticle kicking in the deep end of the pool. Hold your arms over
your head and do flutter kick hard for 30 seconds. You can do different
amounts of time / repeats depending on how good you are at it. Try also
butterfly (dolfin) kick. The key is to be verticle in the water and to
keep your head out of the water while you kick.Also don't lean back. Try
it!

Great place to work on your flip turns!

Visualize a seal in a tank in a zoo.  They just get into
a rhythm, lazily swimming from one end to the other
and then doing a nifty flip turn and going back...over
and over and over.

I have swum zillions of laps in some of the smallest,
most oddly shaped pools imaginable.  When you get
into a rhthm, you don't need to look at the wall, you
don't even need to count your strokes after a while.

You just go..back and forth and back and forth.

Just like those graceful seals.

It gets to be both relaxing and enjoyable...and you
feel great for the rest ot the day after you are finished.
