Counting Strokes

Rate this Entry
Trying to get back into shape after hiatus. Been back in the pool for two months now, building distance, nothing too strenuous, trying not to pay attention to the clock. Today was a "boring" pair of long sets, but the focus on counting strokes per length really helped distract me. Without exaggerating the glide I was still able to keep the count to 15 strokes or less each length (SCY)... Some of the 100s even totaled 57-58 strokes at the end. Last week I was losing form at the end and bringing the hundreds i'm at 63 strokes.

Here's what I did:
10 x 200 on 3:30 (alt. free and pull)
1:00 rest
20 x 100 on 1:45 (free, nos. 5, 10, 15, 20 we're pull)
Total: 4000 SCY/1:11.00
