Reviewing and sharpening FR stroke technique in warmup, long swims, and warm down. Did tempo 50s into a ladder swim followed by 400s pulling. I am considering the possibility that during last several weeks I was on the border line of neural fatigue during some workout sessions. With about two weeks out from the Miramar Lakes 5K OW swim, I will consolidate my current level of fitness towards being fresh and ready to go on race day.
