Inna and I did 30 minutes of long slow distance. In an effort to avoid complete boredom I mix it up. The first ten minutes are steady. The next ten minutes I do five hard strokes and ten easy strokes. Minutes ten through five I go 30 hard, 30 easy. And the final five minutes is steady again, except the last minute is all out.
Static holds make for a good good down. This is a tale of two positions. Michelle (right) is demonstrating great position. Tabitha (left) is beginning to fall part. This of course is normal as fatigue creeps in, but a better strategy is to stop and reset. Quality always trumps quantity.
