March 20; TI and Pose Book

I’m doing more Total Immersion swimming drills and it’s becoming easier to swim the TI way. I’m still slower, but think that my time vs. stroke count is going in the right direction. After doing my drills on Saturday I was doing 25 yards in 13 strokes. During my descend 100/200 set I had portions of downhill swimming with good body roll; and the resulting stroke felt really good. With more drills I think I can get the hang of it.

Finished reading “Once a Runner” and am onto the Pose Method book.
