Default the new year's resolution thread (from the the endless thread...

I''l be so free to start a new thread with the last post from coach shinji on 'the shinji 9 stroke very helpfull thankx! thread'

It 'll be interesting digging this one up again at the end of this year and see what has become of us.

Since many non-TI swimmers misunderstand that TI freestyle is graceful but slow (and only Terry can swim fast), I would like to think about my new year's resolution as "faster 9 stroke freestyle".

In the 9 stroke video, I used 1.6 seconds SR(tempo). So my first target is to swim 9 strokes at 1.55 seconds. I know my right side glide and hip drive is weaker than left side, so polishing right side skating position will be the first step.

I will post my progress on this forum and the coach blog.

What is your new year's resolution about swimming?
My new years resolution for TI:
> strenghten my right kick and my role to the left site.
> getting the early vertical forarm into my system
> be able to swim 15 minutes correctly without stopping and without being out of breath, including flipturns without nose clip (and no water up my nose...:))
> and when summer comes I want to give the open water a try (the sea in my case)

so, who's next?

Nice post robv and Shinji.
Robv,
> getting the early vertical forarm into my system

> and when summer comes I want to give the open water a try (the sea in my case)

These are great targets for me too. Especially swimming 15 minutes without stopping and EVF.
I also want to breath bilaterally. Should I start breathing excersices first?
Let's wait and see...
Good luck all!

OK, I'll summarize here: complete a 400IM fairly well (not in competition).

I just learned how to swim (about 2 months ago) at the age of 51.

My goals:

To learn the TI way and go the length of the pool in a decent amount of strokes. It currently takes me about 40 some strokes!

To not feel so self-conscious around other swimmers.


Stretch goal:

Learn to breath w/o the aid of a Swimmer's Snorkel.

I resolve to:
Make time to stretch my shoulder and chest muscles at least once during the workday.
Do a weight room workout at least once a week.
Go back to single lengths the minute my stroke count creeps up, instead of continuing to try to do 100, or 50, or whatever it was I was doing.
Finally learn to flip turn consistantly.

Complete a 200 fly in a meet. For me that means be able to maintain
1. landing forward for 200yds
2. keep head in line (not drop it too far) for 200 yds

Race a 50yd free sub 30.00
Race 400IM sub 6:00

I call these goals more than resolutions. I will probably race the 200 fly on Feb 7. I hope to be able to schedule the 50 and 400IM at Pacific Short Course championships in April.

I'll resolve to:
* Keep on track in my practice towards 'cruising' a 7:00 min. or less 500yds.
* Get my backstroke feeling as rhythmic and easy as my free (plus turn).
* Get to Lake Minnewaska at least once.
* Practice in OW and enter an OW event.

Cheers
