swim turns

Today I did more flip turns. Not many of them were close to good, yet I feel I am getting closer to getting the hang of them. I think  the way to focus on them is to back off a bit in the pool and take a run at one, stop, back off a little more and go at it again, until I'm far enough back to be really swimming into the turn. I find that I do better when I start close to the end of the lane, swim maybe one stroke, then turn.

Although I think the best way to learn is to keep at it over and over I prefer to go at it incrementally, gradually increasing the number of turns I do in a single swim session. This gives me little goals to meet as I go along,  and that keeps the workout interesting.
