Did this at Brockwell lido in the wetsuit. Still finding it restrictive. I think the buoyancy in the arms means i'm putting too much pressure on at the beginning of the stroke and just pressing water down not backwards. I'll give it a go with the PT paddles next time that are designed to correct this. Anyway, easily faster than not wearing a wetsuit. I just need to swim in a straight line on the day now.
There's also a way to go round marker buoys by doing one stroke of backstroke - i've seen it done but not practiced it. More things to add to the list.
There was a carnival in the park - the band sounded like the specials and the smell of burgers made me go faster.
This session was meant to be done yesterday but I didn't have the time.
Also swam at George's disabled swim session this morning but he did most of the work.
Found the bike tool answer, at only 25g it beats all the others hands down. It's easier than loosing the same amount of fat! -
Just need to find the ultimate chain breaker and i'll be extremely happy.
