The obvious insight from the session today is that I need to improve my Fly block start and underwater transition. From the wall I can go 10 fast SDK into the stroke smoothly with a strong driving kick and pulling with fast hand acceleration for the 25M, getting times of 13.4-13.6 from coach Chuck. The dive Fly 25s were not so great at 13.8-14.0 as I struggled with the SDK portion, and since I also hope to eventually try doing FR starts with some SDK, I will be seriously working on it.
