02/13/04 Breaststroke 100s with Equipment

Here’s a practice that I did on my own to work on pacing for 100 breast. I had two focus points today. One was to keep my toes super pointed after each kick, and to keep them pointed as I drew them up on the recovery. The other focus point was the insweep of the pull. I tried to imagine that I was sculling inward on each insweep. This got a little tricky with paddles on, but it was a good exercise. I was also trying to keep my 100 times consistent, no matter what equipment I was wearing. I kept each of the 100s at about 1:35, except for the paddle 100s, which crept up to 1:37.
