One thing I need to practice more today is my flip turn. It’s something I never learned to do properly myself even though I taught a lot of kids how to do them when I coached swim team back in the day.
This is one of those things that can feel a little ridiculous as an adult to practice in a pool full of people but that I know will help me conserve a lot more energy as I work up to a mile. There are lots of great videos on YouTube that show you how. The one above is one I found on The Swim Channel page through Howcast.com. There are also a number of other great tips there like how to get your breathing down for freestyle. That’s something I’m struggling with a little bit getting started but overall I’m not doing too bad for being at such high altitude here in Boulder.
