Need some help : the most effective yet BASIC exercises, from the earliest beginnings of your swimming careers ... well : I need to know what those drills are! :confused:
I'm always trying to talk myself into thinking I'm doing pretty OK, just by myself, doing my laps in the pool ... I don't want to feel a loner in having very specific exercises or whatever, 'cause I won't be able to do those exercises in a crowded evening-session in our local pool anyway.
My options :
I need some basic understanding and/or drills, on how to effectively improve my stroke. I feel I'm way too inconsistent (a common thing I guess when you're not technically educated in swimming), and not efficient (going too slow, loosing too much power, just not feeling the 'gliding' sensation). This for an evening session.
Now, on some occasions, I will be able to get in a quick morning swim, and that is when I want to improve my technique -- any thoughts there?
Info : Articles, Reviews, Schedules ; I will welcome them all ...
All in all I can say : I've read/heard/seen so much, I can't possibly make good judgement!
Just so you know : My goals in swimming are to fulfill the distance in OLYMPIC TRI ...
Thanks for all the suggestions! :o
