Today's goal: Swim efficiency

"The path to swimming improvement is not to make more energy available through training, it’s to waste less energy by improving your stroke."
~ Terry Laughlin

So apparerently if you can increase your mechanical efficiency even modestly (from even 3% to 4%), that will translate into a 33% improvement in your swimming capacity!

Sounds good to me! So today's session is all about drills, drills, drills. My strokes per lap (SPL) is going down!

I'm 5'6'', so the aim is <19!

25 yards = 22.86m
(Sorry, I'm still searching for an AUS version!)
