Well, delighted to say my better half was well enough to join me at the ATHelite swim session tonight, although the fact that she beat me after not having swum for the last couple of months is a little annoying!!! Great session in the pool tonight - 2,550 or 102 lengths. The arms will be feeling it tomorrow!
Trying to work on the tips I got from Steven Struthers on my swimming. One is to think about pushing my butt higher in the water to aid my body position, shallower kick (and move to a slower kick if possible to save legs for bike / run), avoid 'crossover' (i.e. ensure my arms enter water in front of me between my nose and shoulder blade) and lastly, to ensure my arm bends more quickly on the catch. So, not too much wrong with my technique then ;-)
I think the key to improving the technique will be to focus on one area at a time and tonight's session was not the time to do this. Still, posted some reasonable times and my 300m / 200 m / 100m splits were pretty consistent which I'm pleased with.
I was told off by the guys for training on Monday morning! It seems a rest day is really supposed to be a TOTAL rest day and not a 'I'll sneak in a gentle run session as I am addicted to endorphins and will get grumpy if I don't do it'. Sheesh! Who'd have thought it?! I'll take it easy next week guys, honest ;-)
