After a long conversation with my brother during our regular Monday night cycle training session, I decided it was time to get back to the basics in the pool. Today’s swim was not about speed or distance, instead I focused back on the fundamentals of a good, efficient stroke.
And boy was I off. I could tell right away that I had become sloppy. By running through a series of drills that focus your attention to one area of your body at a time, I could feel how much my form was suffering.
Once again this solidifies in my head the idea of good form first, speed and endurance will come later if proper form is maintained.
