In applying the lessons learned from stroke camp I have found my shoulders and upper arms and chest are feeling some additional fatigue – from the extra pull I’m getting I suspect. With my head down I’m also seeing the pool bottom lane lines in a new light for the first time. While I was always fully aware of the lines themselves I truly thought until now the “T” at the end of each one was nothing but a stylistic flourish! The concept they were there to indicate the wall coming up never occurred to someone who always looked ahead and watched the wall approach. On the other hand, swimming head down does make things potentially exciting in a crowded lane doesn’t it?
