Hi Denise! Great swimming with you and thanks again for joining us. Here’s your original, unedited swim video. I’ll post the swim video analysis on this same page when it’s done.
As mentioned previously I want you to focus on rolling more as you swim. This will increase the distance that you go per stroke and make you a faster more efficient swimmer. The second thing I want you to work on is entering your hands farther from your head (later). Water has more resistance than air and right now you are not capitalizing on that principle. The last thing to focus on is your catch in the water. Right now your hands / arms are gliding flat (locked elbow) on the catch. I want you to focus on rolling over the top of the stroke (over the barrel) as you swim. This will increase your paddle size and really increase the efficiency of your stroke.
