Default Swim Goals

Had some time to think about it:

1) Practice balance drills at the beginning of every swim if not for extended laps.
2) Practice active streamlining and concentrate on hitting that "x,y axis" on switches the same way every time (I think a lot of progress will come from better mastery of this)
3) Seek a "perpetual motion" state of swimming like I have with my running that is reformed on the TI principals and not my old to quote Swimust "donkey like" swimming!
5) Find open water here in Wyoming (bit of a challenge) and practice sighting skills to be fluent
4) Go under 30 minutes on my swim leg of this years Olympic Triathlon in OR.

You've got your priorities correct. The first 3 are all process-oriented. The last (marked #4) is outcome oriented.
Outcomes are a product of process.

(I pick this distance as its short enough to use the TT without getting annoyed with it and long enough that I should be able to make whole second improvements scientifically by working out the TT and SPL settings for each new target time.)

Monthly - Start to get an hour's coaching a month when back in the UK

Yearly - Enjoy every stroke in a 5K open water event, teach my 4 year old to swim without aids. teach my 2 year old to not drink pool water. :)
1. I was better at sticking to my sets, but maybe not always great at the ones I chose

2. 400m - no real progress this year.

3 .No coaching yet - a bit skint after moving country

4. My 5K race was hard and miserable at 11C. My kids are both swimming weekly and the elder one almost unaided but I can't give myself a pass on that either.

On the upside I've taken 18 minutes off my 10K running time, can run 30km as part of a weekly training and can cycle 6 hours and still have enough energy to play with the kids after school.

2014 can be a good year for the pool.

In addition I would like to help more friends learn swimming and spread the word about TI :)
1. January - May I lost over 10 kgs but then stopped going to the gym. Started "Enjoying life more fully" lol so got rid of the harsh diet and gained the weight again so not much luck there.

4. I enjoyed more than I could bargain for. The pleasure of coaching a group of swimmers and Terry's encouragement and applause for the progress and success was a "Fists in the air" moment (after I shared the videos with him on FB).

5. Satisfactory ;)

7. Struggled to quit smoking but not much luck there either. I have been able to decrease the frequency though. Quitting smoking cold turkey will be a resolution for 2014

10. God blessed me & my family with my Son who was born in May. I sure have to spend a lot of time with them so lots of luck on this one :)

I haven't yet sketched the resolutions for 2014. Swimming will be on top of the list.
