For the final section of the video, I’ll just swim…and you can watch how all the parts come together to create speed.

Try to pick out the things we focused on.

Am I in balance front to back…and side to side?

Am I staying low when I breathe, with no more than one goggle out of the water?

Am I taking advantage of every possible angle on my catch and pull?

Are my turns continuous and compact?

In these next few clips, I’ll start by swimming slow and soft…and then build to race pace.

See if the key elements are there – no matter how slow or how fast I swim.

As you add these focus points to your own swimming, remember to work on just one thing at a time.

Start slowly, don’t be afraid to experiment, and be patient when you try to change things with your stroke.

The most important thing is to believe in yourself and to believe you can reach your goals. If you put in the work and stay strong mentally, the rest will take care of itself.

You’ve gotta believe.
