I send out an email each day to the noon masters group with an idea of what we’re doing that day. Here’s the text copy of that email:
34 swimmers in 4 lanes brings with it it’s own challenges, and one is how to get a good workout without focusing on speed.
Working on some various strokes… without going so far as to let the strokes fall apart.
Watching Kara Lynn Joyce swim freestyle is always a joy. Designing set to try to mimic one of her key points, is always a challenge.
Even an old breaststroker has to give in to the demands for backstroke every once in a while.
If you just look at the distance and intervals of this practice, there’s nothing to it.
We added a fun drill to practice today, but if you do the drill correctly for a while… it’s only really fun for the coach. ðŸ™‚
Here’s another set based on an old drill… that we added a new twist to.
Thanks to Barbara for throwing down the gauntlet to my noon masters group. When they saw Barbara’s group doing the Head-Up Dolphin drill, they said… WE WANT TO DO A LITTLE BIT MORE!
Going leg heavy doesn’t just mean grabbing a board. Simply grabbing the wall can be a good start.
