Total Immersion Swimming-Trying It Out June 2, 2007

Posted by Lisa Sabin in Crosstraining, fitness, Recovering From Injury, running, Swimming.

Zappoman has some written a 3 part article about a swimming technique called total immersion. The author of the book, Terry Laughlin breaks down swimming for triathletes. It’s all about getting comfortable in the water. Some of the old habits I have from swimming the “Lisa Sabin” way have resulted in slow swim times, hurt bicep tendon and frustration. I am really first and foremost a runner. The only time I swim is if I am injured or gearing up for a sprint distance triathlon.

Now I find that I am eager to try using the total immersion technique….

I have that book, it’s great. It helped me a lot. Not that I’m a ‘great’ swimmer now, but at least the lifeguards don’t have that anxious look on their face, anymore, when I’m in the water. 😛
