Coach Suzanne,

Being new to using a TT, only about 6 times, how do you calculate turns?
If you are swimming in a 25 yd. pool am I correct in calculating your SPL for that 25 is around 22? I assume you are pushing off, what do you use for that time frame and how do you coordinate or keep track of the tempo on turns with stroke?

I started at 1.5 and found it to be way to slow. I have increased to 1.36 and am still looking for a base line. Any suggestions to find that baseline will be appreciated. Presently my SPL are in the 17 -18 range for 25 yds.

Another questions is what happens to your length per stroke (LPS) in ow versus pool swimming assuming you have calm ow conditions?

Be Well and Swim Silent
