When teaching swimmers how to figure out their rate for freestyle, sometimes you have to put them into a state of discomfort. Some rates are good for some, some are good for others. Treating the entire group the same means there will always be someone who is unhappy. Oh well. 😉

We don’t typically have much opportunity to swim long swims at the lunchtime practice. Many people show, and it’s a short course practice, so long swims would create too much chaos.
