Hunted for this thread today looking for a definition of CSS (normally Critical Swim Speed I think though combat swimming sounds fun!), so thanks Werner for putting the glossary together. I just wish Terry would make it a sticky thread! :)

While I'm here I thought I'd extract the entries you have question marks against and add some input fwiw

s2bf: A forum member -- (Swim to Be Free?)
SC: Stroke Count (TI: Every spear starts a new stroke; no matter which side | Garmin: Every spear with your watch arm starts a new stroke)
SDI: Speed Decline Index (?)
TMMV: ??
w/s: ???
I think the question marks for FB and OR could be got rid of. The s2bf entry could be deleted imo.
NLP often means Neuro Linguistic Programming (a very commercially successful bit of scientific mumbo jumbo)
OCD can refer to Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
OMG and OWS I have no alternative to the ones you give, but I wouldn't encourage the use of OWS so I'd delete it! :D
ROI often means Return on Investment (I've a bad feeling I'm responsible for introducing some of these).

Thanks again

Default Excuse this post...

Hello,

please excuse this post. It's just to push this thread up the the first page. Maybe it's helpflul for a new member... (Very rare additions in last time.)

Best regards,
Werner

I believe the answer lies in the term "perceived" (Rate of Perceived Effort), it will be dependent on skill level, mental/physical fitness... on a scale of 1-5, 1 being easiest 5 being hardest... Terry's experience level allows him to determine this quite 'naturally'. The more one practices deep observation in their own swimming the more natural it will become to determine your own effort levels, and the more attuned and skilled you become you'll see change in those levels; what was once very difficult, let's say, may become quite comfortable.
