This guy is a late bloomer who has come a long way, and has something to tell about swimming. Start with this:

Unfortunately swimming posts are not categorized, but there's interesting stuff to read if you search.

Happy swimming and reading everyone,

Hi Salvo,
Very interesting reading!

By the way, how's your swimming developing? Your report is late, please hurry up Smile.

Hey Adrian, glad you liked the read! As for my swimming, I'm going on with a usrpt(ish) approach. I'm currently a bit less trained than I was a few months ago (at the time of Red Mist and Gerry Rodrigues' sets) but I'm swimming better.
In these days I like doing sets like 40x50m on 1:00 coming in 40-41s. I usually don't fail and finish quite fresh at 140bpm (say a threshold effort). USRPT actually recommends to design the sets in order to fail before the end of the set, but my goal at the moment is to swim as many lengths as I can with my best form and easy speed. These kind of sets are challenging but still allow me to pay attention to technique. Today for instance - with the aid of Tempo Trainer - I concentrated on turns and I found that a quick turn with a shortish pushoff (like G.Paltrinieri) suits me better than a longer pushoff (like Romanchuk).
And in the meanwhile I ordered Sheila Taormina's book Smile

How's your marathon training going? And swimming?
Salvo

Great find Salvo.

Its interesting to see he came to 1.30/100m 500m with a crap technique (havent seen it). Thats quite good in our eyes, so power level helps.
Swimming 1.20/100m  1000 meter easy is a very high set goal.

Where is he now with his focus on technique combined with his big fitness level?

He has a pretty rational view on the swim problem. Focus a bit much on Taormina which is his first influencing person regarding technique. At least you cant really go wrong with Taormina.
He should visit our forum to learn more! Very Happy

This is where he was last February (watch from 1:35):

He also swam under 20 minutes on the 1500m (SCM). Not bad for someone how started at 2:38/100m...!

No traction on his arms and a massive kick. Form doesnt look so bad but it looks like a bucket is hanging on his legs. Kick seems to create more drag than propulsion.He will indeed benefit from some Taormina treatment. And some ankleband stuff... or a TI ticket Smile
He has about twice my engine size. doing 300 watt on a bike at 125 BPM.

Hi Salvo,
Marathon training is going well. I had the main competition back in May and was very close to the 3h mark.
Will need to train harder and try again next year Smile.

As for my swimming, it doesn't go anywhere and in fact I have to put it on pause for couple of years.
Realized that I don't have the time to train properly and I just don't want to go to the pool and see my pace
staying the same or going worse. Running, cycling, gym will keep me alive during this time. I'm happy I did the Iron Man
distance already so this is ticked off the list Smile.
