Default TI Drills before OPEN WATER race

Today I participated in an Open Water Swim (1MILE=1,650m) and managed to swim in 38min (2 minutes faster than my previous two attempts in NOV and in FEB).

Same place, same conditions, no training at all.

What made the difference?

1. Stretching before the race
2. 20 minutes of multiple zen switch drills prior to the start. Gave me a "good feeling of rotation" + "proper catch"

If you also have a "NEW, NON-AUTOMATIC TI stroke", I recommend you try this before a race. The DRILL will prepare your body to swim in the proper way. ALEX
