spreadsheet

Very nice, I forgot about Google spreadsheets.
Do the numbers represent minutes for 1500m?

Tempo Time SPL calculations

Thank you for the above account; I have also been playing with the TT and trying to assess my stroke counts at a variety of stroke rates.

I am going to attach a small spreadsheet that computes swim...

relaxation

I am 45, in 2006 I went from panting badly after 50m to swimming Alcatraz (1.3mi) without too much trouble; I was not aware of TI then, and just went to the pool and swam longer and longer distances...

goals

I am through my first real 'season' of swimming, my longest swim was a tide assisted 10K in Germany; my toughest swim was the 5K at Coney Island, my coldest swim was in the fjords in Norway and a...

Cook Strait

You may have read Lynne Cox's account ( In 'Swimming to Antactica') of her swim across Cook Strait (first woman to do so); you'll really be intimidated!
Good luck. Have you done any of the big 3...

When it is warmer I like to swim with the CIBBOWS crowd out at Coney...

improving speed

Pete,
A very personal view on that issue: I am close to where you are in terms of pace (2 minutes for 100m- 50m pool). In general as speed= stroke length x stroke rate, you have a choice of working...

coney island- brighton beach- currents

Is where I go to do my open water swimming, highly recommended. If you come on a Saturday or Sunday at 10 am, the CIBBOWS swimmers congregate at Grimaldo's chair (Brighton Beach- see the website for...

under water

It seems to me that he wins the race during the loooong under water portions of the race (seems like almost half the pool length), when he comes off the turns; during the actual stroking he is not...

not sinking any more

Things are getting better. Every 3rd breathing now feels quite natural, the shoulders are not aching, and I do not experience the sinking on exhalation. How did I do it?
Beats me, I think it was just...

Thank you for posting the videos;
Also speaking from the view of a novice, but: Dikla Sasson's demo seems exaggerated for demonstration purposes. The thing...

LilBeav- I agree

LilBeav; that has been my experience also; if you have to lift your head out of the water to breathe you will arch your back (and swim uphill) to get some air. I will know exactly when I was doing...

thanks

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll keep an eye on where my elbows are.

I went back and things are getting easier; I focused on relaxed slow swimming, and I had a much easier time breathing, both sides...

sinking and exhaling

I think I have a similar issue; I have been trying to convert my distance swimming (1+ mile in the pool) to breathing every 3rd stroke. My goal: gain symmetry, and force myself to swim more...

cold water

Guys, this is a fascinating topic, as it can be somewhat amazing what the human body (not mine) is capable of.
I greatly admire those who can swim in SF bay without a suit, I wore a wetsuit and felt...

New Paltz

I have considered that, but like many I have a busy life, and spending 4 hours+ in the car for a 1 hour swim lesson just does not compute; especially if I am considering somewhat more regular...

breathing and buoyancy

The wet- suit helps you, because you get rid of the sinking feeling. In other words you are able to relax and turn to breathe, rather than fighting with your arms to keep your body and head close to...

the mile

My first post here. Sorry for the long- windedness.

My brother shamed me into swimming the Sharkfest (Alkatraz to San Francisco, about 1.3 miles, cold water) about 2...
