Videos of What to NOT do

Please share your swimming videos of what to not do.

In swim faster faster I've written the best way to split a 200 is:

go out with easy speed,
breathe often,
don't do too many SDKs and
hold your last 3 50's around exactly the same.

Here's what can happen if you go out too hard.
You don't swim your race as fast as you could have if you split your race right and
you get to take a ride on the pain train.

Andrew Wang went in the 57.36 in the 100 fl and he swam the 200 fly in the finals at the 2011 American Short Course Championships in Austin, TX on Sat March 5th, 2011

If I can get a chance to video it, I'll post my 1000 Rev. IM from the Inland NW Champs meet in 2 weeks! :)
I should be okay in my swimming of it, but it's what NOT to do as the "common" swimmer.

More specifically, don't do more SDKs in the race than you do off your walls in practice :).

That might have been too much SDKs for a SC 200 fly. Man, that last 25 looked painful watching.

I don't know how many SDK's he normally takes in training, but in that race he took about as many as I do. The first 100 he was taking around 8 and on the second 100 he was taking 5-6. Same as what I did in Seattle last weekend, and I split my race fine. The piano dropped on him because he sprinted his first 50 in 22.96! ...Which I can't relate to because I've never done a 50 fly that fast in my life. I will just say that it looked like he was going too hard and should have been in "easy speed" mode.

I timed at ACC's at GA Tech a few weeks ago and in the B-Final a kid from UNC split his 200 fly like this:

23.39
26.19 (49.58)
27.62
32.29 (59.9)

It was SO painful to watch! :badday:

Nope. Moussambani's a "do". Guy worked hard and finished. He's my hero.

I didn't understand the posting of that video either. He may not of had the greatest stroke in the world, but at least he showed up and did it.

As we stepped onto the blocks (last heat of the meet), I asked jokingly to everyone if anyone wanted to "Race to the 25". :) The one kid said OK...I figured he was joking too. After the dive, he took off, and I had to try to catch him...I think I did beat him at the flip to the 25. :banana:
