I went back to the pool today after a 3 day break… it was supposed to be a 2 day break but I wasn’t really feeling it yesterday. Tonight I rode out and got in a decent swim. I decided to mix in a fair amount of breaststroke to start getting ready for the 200m breast that I decided to sign up for in Long Beach.

I’m still trying to diagnose the lack of speed in my breaststroke. During my hundred I only took about 8 strokes per length of the pool (SCY) which seems pretty good to me, but the speed isn’t really there. Plus I seem to lose a lot of momentum when I transition from the underwater pulldown to actually swimming at the surface. Not sure if I just need to turn it over faster or what. I’ve got a few weeks to watch some videos online and figure it out.
