For years I have bought into the theory that one is either a freestyle or a breaststroke swimmer. Most people I have talked to say they are either or. It also seemed to me that there were more good Br women swimmers than men. I know I am talking generalities here. It will be interesting to see how I can progress by following the steps Terry lays out.
Going to also spend maybe 1/4 of each session burning in the 6 beat kick for my sprint events.
I also hear the little voice in the back of my head saying " don't get scattered".
May we swim with ease at the speeds we choose.
