I managed 30 minutes on the aero bars on rollers.. got me thinking about bike fit. It was comfortable and I think my position is okay. Still I'm wondering would it be worth getting a fit done. It def wouldn't be retul.. too expensive. Some places do a fitting for about £40 that might be worthwhile.. anyone know of a cheap/free online alternative where you could submit a recording?
Agree with GB. Definitely could have a place for drills and focused efforts, but hiding technique problems behind buoyancy shorts probably isn't the ideal fix. If you're swimming a couple of times a week i'd do at least one swim without the shorts and include plenty of kicking sets.. if you can get to a stage that you're comfortably able to kick with a float for 100m you might find your legs naturally sitting a bit higher in the water.
Turbo for me yesterday.. hard enough session with about 10 others. Supposed to be going to the track for running tonight, but for some reason i've not recovered from the weekends 10k race yet! Rollers at home instead i think.
I see Challenge Mallorca is down as the European middle distance championships.. has anyone done it before? Its towards the end of October so should be plenty of recovery after a late August IM right? Assuming I've not fallen to pieces..
