When I first watched this, I was shocked. But I was shocked for different reasons than I originally thought I would be. Sure, my left arm is crossing the center line when I reach, my head is coming out of the water a little bit to much when I breath and a tighter core and more body-roll won't hurt. But my biggest problem? I am literally moving in slow motion. My turnover rate is, I dunno, maybe 2/3rd's of what it should be? And there is a dead-spot in my stroke when I breath - it makes the whole stroke look jerky. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I had no idea. And remember this is a guy who sucks at swimming critiquing himself. I can only imagine what some of you swimmers see.
Today is a pool workout anyway, so here's what I've come up with:
- 500 yards warm-up
- 200 yards paddles/pull buoy
- 200 yards alternating one-arm
- 10 x 50 yards on :20 rest
- 10 x 50 yards on :15 rest
- 100/200/300/200/100 yards on :20
- 200 yards cool-down
I'm leaving for the pool in 5 minutes.
