I swam for about an hour today wanting to get a better feel for my technique. In yesterday’s triathlon workout, I wrote that I can feel a slight improvement in my strokes and that I am using more of my shoulders and not my arms. And today I wanted to really solidify that new sensation. I also get the impression that I can stretch my arms further when I utilise my shoulders more. I didn’t get a chance to record my lap times so I can’t tell whether it’s making me go any faster. I doubt it and frankly speaking it’s not really important to me at the moment to go faster. I just want to make sure I can swim comfortably and that I don’t tire myself out too much. In the triathlon I still have to cycle and run so not being tired after the swim really counts.
