So this week was the second video session for the swim clinic, and while the first one was bad, this one was worse. All the things I have been working on and feeling good about- the video shows that, no, I'm not doing it right. Of course, the second time around we are much more critical of the technique, and I don't think I'm regressing. It's just that, in my head, I'm doing all the right things, but my body is not translating those thoughts into action. But at the same time, I would never know that if we didn't videotape. So it is a good thing overall, but still painful to watch.
If you want to see how it is supposed to look see Grant Hackett below (though you may get more out of it if you can understand French!)
