Team swim and bike day.
Went to Redwood High School in Larkspur in the morning. They have a great pool (see us swimming on the right, or the satellite image below).
We split amongst three groups (Age, Pro, Elite) by our self-assessed swim athleticism. Age was defined as: If you haven't swam before. "Hmmm, not me" I said to myself, and moved into the Pro group. Man, was I out of my league.
Here are my problems:
- Bad technique
- Hyperventilating, i.e. breathing too much and not getting enough good air into my lungs
I need to practice their drills this coming week and hopefully be in better shape for the team swim coming next Sunday.
