    I'm not very good at sprinting from a mid pool flip turn though. I'd rather skip the flip and just go from a dead start.

    150ish pace just = get your heart rate up for the much more important 15 meter platinum speed bursts.

    150ish pace? I'm sorry but who is writing this blog?

    saw a cool drill yesterday. At the 20m mark float on ur stomach, kick very hard but scull so u go nowhere. When at max rpm, do a flip turn and SDK all the way back to the wall (20 meters).

    I saw that awhile ago too. It has a USMS sanction, but I was advising one of my HIT folks to contact the meet director to make sure the pool was measured and on file. It's at a health club pool, shallow & outside. I doubt builders are excruciatingly careful about accuracy at such pools.

    Yeah it's slow. I completely missed the second wall and was de-motivated to really sprint the second 50. So it became a warm up event.

    Didn't have enough time! But did get a feel for downtown Memphis. Fried pie? I had some barbecue, but I don't do fried food.

    25+25. Really should have been 20.
