Your Weekly Swim Tip


The goal of a "feel good" swim is to make the sensations you get on a hard set feel good, rather than bad. The idea of "feel good" is to experience the sensations you get when swimming hard in a new and non-threatening light.

When you think about it- the only thing that makes a hard set feel bad is when you think it "hurts". The sensations themselves can easily be interesting or even pleasant. When you perceive them as unpleasant, it is because you think they "hurt".

You feel them. They catch your attention. They can be intense. But they don't have to hurt or be experienced as painful if you label them otherwise and understand that there is no impending or actual biological damage.

These sensations will signal biological growth through adaptation.

Experience the discomfort as something good. Make it a "feel-good" experience. Seek out these sensations.

Make them happen. Notice them. Then, make a point to adapt to this new "feel-good" style in your swimming
