Swim Training Guide Question

Postby kef27 » Wed Oct 20, 2010 5:53 am

I just purchased the Bambino training guide and I had one question - when the instructions refer to "one length" does that mean 25m, or 50m? Where I live, there aren't any 50m pools, but I realize that 50m might be the "industry standard".

Please let me know - thanks! Looking forward to finding my mojo as a swimmer - I've never had such difficulty with a sport before!

Hi Kevin,

It means the length of the pool, so 25m in your case. Does that make sense in the context of what you're reading?

Thanks for purchasing your guide, let us know how you go!

Cheers,

Adam

Hi Kevin,
I've been swimming in Southern California for 30 years and the pools are typically organized for swimming 25 yard lengths, except for the summer when lane lines are changed for long-course (50m) length training. :P
Just fyi,

Another Swim Training Guide Question

Postby Highway 22 » Thu Nov 25, 2010 11:20 pm

I am just working my way through the Swinger guide for the first time, and will do Session #2 tomorrow. The guide calls for one of the 400 repeats to be "teady freestyle - tap toes gently", but I can't find any reference to what is meant by toe tapping. Can anyone clarify this?

All I can think is that it means to make sure my toes tap each other as they pass while kicking. Is that right?

Thanks,

Jeff

Perfect, thanks. I searched the site for the answer, but didn't realize that the blog would be separate.
