Ross had us do a speed control workout that totaled 2750 meters. The water felt great. Last night, I finished reading “Gold in the Water,” which is about a group of swimmers training for the 2000 Olympic Trials, so forward motion and propulsion were very much on my mind. The writing in that book is quite vivid, and it has some photos that show that tremendous muscles that make up a swimmer’s back. With all of that on the brain, I really tried to focus on rolling and pulling. It was a good start to the new workout plan.
