Saturday Swimming

Decided to just go for a normal swim on Saturday. 1.75km in 40 mins with a few drills in-between. Felt OK - tried not to use my legs too much as want to save them for the race tomorrow and my arms felt pretty good.

Concentrated on keeping my body flat in the water and on rotating, so making sure my right shoulder comes up out of the water when my left arm is out front. I hear this makes you quicker - and it certainly does seem to.

Long stokes today with glides - so not race pace - tried to make sure the technique is decent rather than the pace. Interestingly I am sure I am quicker with a slow stroke than I am with a fast one, just need to strengthen the shoulders and loose a stone!
