Triathlon Freestyle Simplified. Swim Stronger, Better, Faster by Conrad Goeringer & Rob Sleamaker
I know one of the authors, and may be able to get them to join us on one of the ZOOM sessions.
Swimmers will write answers to the following questions to be discussed on the Zoom meeting for deeper learning and understanding.
This will also add a level of ACCOUNTABILITY to actually read the book to be able to contribute at each Monday Zoom Discussion.
QUESTIONS TO ANSWER WEEKLY:
1. What was the top idea or quote you took from this section of the book?
2. What was a NEW CONCEPT you got from the book that you hadn’t heard of before, or was described much differently?
3. Was there any idea or concept that you disagreed with, or don’t feel you understand yet.
4. Was there any idea, concept, activity, drill, workout you plan to incorporate into your own training or technique development? How will you implement it?
