I second what Coach Bob wrote. I do both and feel both are highly beneficial. Especially now: (1) Because I'm 65; and (2) Because I'm being treated for prostate cancer.

Exploring Tempo and SPL in a 50m pool

I've swum nearly every day this week but haven't posted simply because I've been revisiting the practices I did last week. I'm recovering slowly from something that really cut into my stamina and...

It makes you wonder what her qualifications are exactly, or the meaning of the word 'qualified' in this case. I doubt she has actually compared the two different ways of kicking, yet still tells...

That was quite misinformed and very old-school advice. Particularly if--as is the case with most triathletes when racing--you might be wearing a wetsuit.
Except for those who swim with very...

I'm not clear on what "P timing" is and how it differs from what we teach, but I think it's important to understand we teach consistent mechanics with variable stroke timing.

Great analysis and advice. I would make virtually the same adjustments, except staying with 400m repeats, though it means I'm not as fresh later in the set. This is simply because on 200m...

Stuart, there is a cable, a bit less than 200m long. Salvo, the lake is mostly protected from wind because it's narrow and tucked between hills on one side and a high cliff on the other. It's open at...

Certainly some of my ability to hold a particular pace comes from sets where I do push myself. Most often that will be in the final repeat or two.

Tom
I spent nearly 10 years-mid 90s to early 00s--swimming with a too-low stroke count. But it felt good and imprinted some good habits. That was 11-13 SPL in 25y. I didn't race in the pool at that...
