I bought a new camera today, an Olympus Mju Tough 8010. It’s a waterproof camera and I’m having so much fun with it. I want to record and document as much of my journey as possible and it’s perfect for video and still work.
One thing I got from the PDF as well as Terry’s video is to position to head properly. My head has always been a problem as it’s always tense and I can’t seem to relax it enough. One tip got was to imagine a laser line extending from the top of my head and pointing straight ahead. To do this, I have to make sure my eyes are looking straight down. When I do, I find my body seems to follow suit and it doesn’t rock as much. Before this, I was all over the place. You can see what I mean in the video.
I’ve still got a lot of work to do as far as my swimming technique goes and I’m having a lot of fun improving it, especially with my new toy.
More video’s can be expected from now on…..
