Thanks to everyone who follows my blog
I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday
it began here:
will blog this practice later today at:
8:00 - 10:00
Neil Walker coached
SCY swim center main pool
swam with Anders Storvik, David Zolno, beside Tanica Jamieson and several younger swimmers I'm not going to name.
dove in around 6:35
6 x (100 fr on 1:30, 50 k on :50)
20 x 25 k on 25
there was something else I don't recall
200 IM moderate
2 x 50 free fast from a dive on 1:10
2 x 50 br fast from a dive on 1:10
2 x 50 bk fast from a dive
went 30 & 25
50 fl fast from a dive
put on FS PRO leg skins
50 bk fast
rested 5 minutes
50 bk fast (with only 7 SDKs)
as I sat out and rested for my fast swims
the swimmers did more rounds
I had fun getting times for swimmers
encouraging them and
offering them suggestions like:
+ Streamline like Michael Phelps
+ Go a little deeper off your push offs
+ Take in a Big breath of air before your turn and hold it.
+ Take more SDKs off your start and turn on fly
they dropped from 32 to 29
+ Try this Aqua V cap on your next fast swim
I had one with me and let them try it out.
The swimmers swam faster times.
Maybe it was the my suggestions
Maybe it was because I was paying attention to them and calling out their times.
