I hope and expect that 2023 will be a strong and productive season. As I’ve been told by my coach umpteen times ‘practice to race; don’t race to practice.’ Meaning – put in the work so that the races are ‘fun’.
As part of this, I went to Columbus during the offseason to work with a swim coach. I found Ryan through a Google search, and as I learned over the sessions, I made the right choice. If you’re in or will be visiting the Columbus area and need a good coach, reach out to him via rct.coach!
Because of a scheduling change on my end, what we ended up with was 2 sessions each day. So the first one would be drills / easy 100s and the second would be a much harder / tempo set.
While I don’t remember all of the specific drills or sets, I did make it through everything. I know that I came out of the sessions having learned a great deal.
All in all, this ended up being a great training trip. I will definitely connect with Ryan in the future for more off-season swim training!
