I finally had my swim date with Sarah from Daily Mile! To start the morning, Carrie and I went for a bike ride along the bike path. I was prepared this time with my bike pump, extra tube, and patch kit! We showered quickly after our ride and hopped in the car to drive over to the BSC at South Station.
Carrie and I got there before Sarah, so we warmed up a bit. Then Sarah arrived a bit distraught because she was a few minutes late. Really it was no biggie! We enjoyed the time to get used to the pool.
DRILL #1: CATCHUP
First thing we learned is that you should keep your body long. We learned a drill called “Catch up.” In Catchup you isolate one of your arms in front and then the other arm performs the stroke. You then switch arms.
I am actually VERY excited about my next swim session so that I can use all these drills! I also was very flattered because Sarah said that I had good endurance and she was impressed that it was only my 4th time swimming when she first saw me!
What new fitness drill or technique have you learned recently?
