My swim coach and friend, Rick, now has me convinced that solid conditioning is key for the swim, and improved technique will come along behind if you watch what you’re doing.
The clock plays a big role in swim training, and it seems to change speed all the time. If you are trying to make a hard set, say 500s broken, the clock gets faster and faster, both when you are swimming and for those brief rest intervals on the wall. However, if you are doing an unstructured swim, it is easy to watch the clock moving lazily around, it even seems to slow down, and before you know it you’ve rested for several very pleasant, but not useful, minutes.
The real trick is to have a structured workout before you arrive at the pool, and bust your butt to stick to your times.
