Swim Practice January 31st-Controllable Progress

Many times in the sport of swimming, it is very easy to get overwhelmed when focusing too much on times and looking past the other avenues of improvement that are within your control on a daily basis. By looking at each practice one at a time, and setting small goals within, improvement can become much more consistent, recognized, and controllable.

For today’s practice, we would like everyone to focus on one single non time based goal that is within your control. This can be working to form a habit of streamlining off of every wall, to building every swim to get more comfortable controlling your speed and effort level, or working towards a specific stroke change at various points within the practice. Make your goal applicable to you, and give yourself the opportunity not only enjoy your training a bit more, but to recognize and appreciate the effort and improvement of your training day to day.
