11/28/11 - Active Recovery

Swam at Bartlett Rec this morning with Tim Moore. We worked on some technique and concluded that I should side stroke instead of freestyle. Practiced it for a few 25's then finally got the hang of it. Felt amazing! Did a few 100's non stop and felt awesome! I've never swam that far nonstop without being completely gassed. Big thanks to Tim for showing me some new things. I can't wait to retest a 1k.

On a side note,Tim set the current record for BUDS candidate this passed weekend for the 500m sidestroke during his PT test. Instructors couldn't believe it. Time was 6:50.

  1. normal sidestroke or combat side stroke? CSS is king when it comes to efficiency!

  2. Normal side stroke. Felt really comfortable.
