I have been swimming since September. As I get bored with front crawl I have often done underwater lengths to improve my hockey game. I’ve not played any hockey over the uni-holidays (as all the students leave town), so am not sure if my games has improved.
Reading Larry O’Brien’s blog this morning he posted about 365 day challenges, and a possible counter challenge of underwater swimming. He replied to my comment and introduced me to the term dynamic apnea - underwater swimming, I then spent the next while reading sites talking about training.
My current bests are: 50m no fins, 75m with fins.
Offtopic: Larry’s 15 Exercises to Know A Programming Language looks like good fun too.
