This what I swam on Wednesday morning. I decided halfway through Set 3 that I probably should work on breath control off my turns. My breathing wasn’t pretty! That’s one reason I added in the freestyle, flip turn, fly set.
I also added the dryland I do after I swim.

Here’s a freestyle workout that I found challenging, but enjoyed swimming. Continue reading “Hardy Freestyle Workout”
I didn’t expect to find a great streamline at a car show, but I did! Maybe I should get one for my car…
To get a great streamline, like the hood ornament, this video may help:
I went 4025 yards in an hour! Wooo! And apparently my sister knocked my water bottle in at some point… 🤔

I knew I could maintain the correct pace for a while, but I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to hang on for the whole hour. It was challenging and resulted in a substantial improvement from last year – which I swam cold turkey. I didn’t train for it at all last year. This year I’ve been swimming and doing OrangeTheory. I’ll post soon on how my own your own workout evolved.

I am now able to run a USMS stroke clinic, so look for me to put one on in a few months. 🙂
I’ll leave you with a couple pictures I took:
