First, an update! After my half Ironman-ish time test Saturday before last, Chris Hauth told me I need to increase my overall training volume. His exact quote was, "Say goodbye to your weekends!"
Then he gave me the week off to "recover."
I did sinking drills first and had good results with my exhale being strong and full. Then I practiced the American Crawl, aka freestyle. As I swam and found the hypnotic rhythm of the pull and turn and breath, I had a memory of the Gillman from The Creature from The Black Lagoon. The creature swam with his finger/claws spread and I seem to move much quicker doing it as well! Until tomorrow my friends
