Sprint triathlon update
Thursday, May 10, 2012
yesterday my hubby entertained the idea.
we hit the pool!
through one of your advise...i got him flipper
and through all your advise... i convinced him ONE lap at a time.
we will troubleshoot.
so I am proud to say...although he had a Hard time.....he made improvements
and will aim to do this annual tri NEXT YEAR!
the flippers made it easier
BUT he didn't want to be DEPENDENT on it.
but i told him...he needed to break up the movements!
unlike running...swimming is a full body workout.
(i was born a fish at 2 months old. so it was hard to relate)
but i told him...his main issue is anxiety....which was very apparent yesterday.
and the flipper will help him figure out the arm and breathing synch, by removing the kicking and bouyancy issue
then he can use the kick board for kicking.... break it up...conquer bits and pieces of the whole piece!
he set out for 4 nonstop... but only did 2
he was quite disappointed
but it turned out, he couldn't even do 2 bef!
and thinking about 14 threw him into a panic!
much like how i run, thinking about 26.2 was Crap-O-la
but going 13, 14, 15, 16, 18 was easier ;p
meanwhile. our dd who hasn't swim in months...and was not doing well at swim team last year.., and i pulled her out
did 20 non stop laps, in beautiful strokes!!
how, when and where??
blew us away
