Post Election Recovery - Work on Strokes

A large part of your success in the pool results from how streamlined you move in the water. Why do you go slower in the water when you have clothes on than when you wear a bathing suit? Because of all the drag created by the friction of the clothes.

Think of yourself as swimming in a wind tunnel. How would you slip forward in a wind tunnel?

Today, we are not going very far. We are just working on our strokes. Swim slowly today. Concentrate on slipping through the water.
