Feb 23; Swimming Turns

The last few weeks my swimming hasn’t felt so good. Since running is my focus, I figured swimming would suffer. But Saturday was such a bad swim I needed to make a change. My turns have gotten lazy, so last night I put away the clock and focused on making every turn a good one. Overall my swimming improved. Getting off the wall faster and more streamlined gave me more speed going into the stroke. With more speed I didn’t need to use the stroke to speed up. Instead, my stroke was used to maintain speed.
