team silly nannies

Thank you!!!

This video is so helpful. Thank you soooooo much.

Wow, I can relate to trying to survive in the pool instead of timing myself

Lmao I can’t even swim 100m without dying

quality and not quantity. and frequency of training.

I swim like a brick lol

Thanks guys!

You mention that it is better to swim more frequent rather than swimming long sessions. The thing I noticed that my technique got better the more tired I got during a long session. As if I was too weak to use any unnessecary forces.
