This morning Jacob was insistent that we go earn his Mile Swim. Jacob got tired quick and had to resort to backstroke after 200 yards. Then he started straying from a straight line and got in other swimmers way who were sharing the lane so I called off his mile attempt so we could focus on technique. We took this video at the end. I don't mean to be overly critical, but here are some common mistakes that young kids make that are still learning.
Thing is. I really need to have someone video me so I can SEE what things I'm doing wrong, cause I bet I have a ton too. Video feedback is awesome!
I ended up swimming 1200 yards with him during this morning's lesson.
