...but nobody cared to comment.
Today I had a tough guy swim sorta.
5 x 200 MF on 4:00
Back, Under-over, shooters by 25 on :30 (5:00)
10 x 100 FR 1:45 held 1:30's and desc to 1:25 on the last two...this is impressive for me.
4 x 50 Fly Drill
8 x 25 Fly
Coach turned up for his swim while I was there and he pointed out a fault on my FR. I was leading my roll with my shoulder before my hand was in the water...so I worked on that and hey presto, I knocked off 2 strokes per length.
This was good news b/c that had been bugging me since I hurt my back, my Stroke count had gone up by 2.
In return I thwapped him on the hand while I did fly, but he and I both apologised and tried to take the blame.
A pride moment (I don't have any TT's or WR's to brag about) he said my BR was really good and quote: "That's the way it should be swum..." sure it isn't perfect but it made my day. Maybe I'm bragging, but this guy was invited to Olympic trials in the 50's for BR. Awesome coach.
After that I hit the gym:
Pull ups 10,8,6.
Chins 3 x 6.
Taught several classes and coached swim team...whaddya know we worked on BR for 40 minutes of the hour...
