More great feedback from Jorge! I swim with DCRP and it is all elite, Division 1 swimmers. After 10+ years swimming with them, I have gotten over swimming in the ‘triathlete’ lane (ie the slowest!) 🙂 That said, pool (competition) swimming can be different from triathlon swimming. So don’t be afraid to consider a master’s swim group if its convenient. However just remember that you could be getting some conflicting feedback if you do ask the coach on deck for feedback. Kicking is a very common example. Competition swimmers have a very different kick than triathletes. They do a 200 IM and are finished. Triathletes must get out of the water and bike and run 😉
That said, this discussion is perfect timing because March 8 and 15 will afford you the opportunity to receive feedback from the DC Tri Club’s Master’s coaches if you attend the clinics. So here is a gentle nudge to pack your swim gear! See you Sunday (and remember daylight’s saving time)!
