Since Coach Cheryl (who I shared a lane with) said the pool would be LCM right after nationals, I wasted no time in going! It felt long, but not horrifically long. Still did a mostly recovery workout with nothing fast. Hopefully, I will be ready tomorrow for at least some 100 pace work.
Tips for improving breast collected from nats thread. Maybe I can work on these on a recovery/technique day.
1. evil kick on back, knees not breaking surface
2. eggbeater kick
3. evil kick w/buoy right above knees
4. breast pull w/flutter kick for turnover
5. breast alternate fly pull and evil pull (sounds awkward)
6. hip thrust -- no idea what this is about
7. narrower pull
Way way more importantly, Patrick insists I need to learn the back to breast crossover turn. I look at videos of these and get dizzy and confused. Does someone have a 5 step to do list for this turn? This is definitely something I can see trying to learn.
