For some reason I just slow down my turnover with paddles, but I didn't let that stop me. I do love to use paddles so I just went with it.

    I can't sprint with paddles either! But I trick myself by telling myself to pull the back half harder - and that probably is pulling faster too - I know I go faster!

    Are you using small paddles? Those are better for sprinting.

    I have the red Tyr Catalysts. I probably should have used the strapless paddles but then again I'd be afraid they would go flying at fast speeds.
