I did a little more swim lesson action with Heidi today… we introduced the idea of streamlines and breaststroke kick. The streamline thing is going ok, the breaststroke kick is going to need a little more work.
I didn’t swim too much. We were at the Arroyo Grande Kennedy pool and you have to schedule it out in 30 minute blocks… not really enough time to get anything done. Plus I just don’t like this pool, it tastes like sweaty old person and the walls are a little curved making it hard to judge turns. I swam like 500 yards and spent the rest of the time teaching.
I got some bonus video from yesterday’s meet in Fullerton today from my friend Jinxi who was out at her second ever Masters meet yesterday! If you’ve ever seen me race fly you can see what went wrong for me… I surfaced way early compared to what I usually would do. Off a dive I normally do about 6 strokes off a dive, in this race I did 8. Oh well, at least I have the Cal Tech Pentathlon in a couple of weeks to make up for it! I registered today and I’m stoked to go do some sprinting!
