Reply To: Technique First
Thanks for the feedback everyone. All of what you have said is along the lines of what I was already working on but it definitely helps to hear it from other people. The ‘elbow bend’ is something that I continue to work on (believe it or not my arm used to be even straighter) and I reckon when I get this right I’ll be able to hold together the back end of my 100 much better than I currently am. I had a look at my 50 metre pace videos after posting the 100 pace ones above and they seem to have less ‘issues’ in them than the 100 pace does. I’m wondering if all my years of ‘traditional training’ is showing through more here due to what seem to be some lazy habits surrounding my breaths. Anyway I’ll focus on the particular elements discussed and will re-post in a couple of weeks to compare.
PS: I’m in Melbourne
