Total Immersion Swimming

I am about half way through the book: Total Immersion by Terry Laughlin.  I have been swimming my laps for years and do have a pretty relaxed stroke. I’m almost 60 years old and this book with its innovative how-to stuff that Terry has put forth makes me feel like a teenager again.  Previously I was mainly interested in just keeping in shape.  NOW I’m very interested in doing some racing to see how I fare against others.  Still working on finding my ‘zone’ or sweet spot for the techniques that he talks about but I’m doing 14-16 strokes per length compared to most people I see doing 25-30 and and I’m going much faster. The edition that I’m reading is @1995 but there is an abridged on circa 2005.  Great book for any level of swimmer.

Getting my pool resurfaced even as I sit here, so I will have to check this one out. I haven't done laps in years!
