When did triathletes start doing butterfly? I thought we only knew how to swim freestyle; darn this off-season is throwing me some surprises. I choose the wrong day to start actually swimming (not just using swimming to stay loose) after my transition period. Weights/Abs Tuesday, then Wednesday a swim workout completely around butterfly; what kind of sick joke? Butterfly with a pull buoy, WHAT!! Thanks goodness that was short. I am not even sure how far I swam today but I did experience something that I very rarely feel in swimming; muscular fatigue. Stroke was going to crap at the end of the practice so started to think about all the lovely dolphins that I saw in Kona and try to use the abs and back more to lift my arms out of the water. It worked, I finished. There has it... I am back swimming a real workout. On a side note, kudos to Ashley for teaching all the triathletes other strokes and trying to fix all my butterfly flaws I learned XX years ago. If you ever need to add a little ab work in; just dolphin kick on your back. A great little ab work!
