Hey so glad to hear this. It ain't that slow. The Fly when swam with longer distances in mind is a slow stroke, slower than breaststroke. I often train on similar pace.

That though, is bloody fast...

For me, effort perceived as well as all other indicators (breathing, heart rate etc) go up along with swim speed, this is true for all strokes, including the fly.

I'm a special fly swimmer, in that...

Hi Kevin, you may be right I donno, and I'd be glad that my works be inline with TIs
