Talvi,

Too true, sometimes it perhaps is good to take a break. Periodization I believe has psychological benefits too. The practice that I get in OW is also good because it gives me a great...

Terry,

Just a note:
I reread the article while searching for the Green Zone on "The Right Stroke Count".
I guess I never caught it, but going from 50 stroke/50 meter to 25 over the years is...
