Met the head Master’s Swimming coach at the YMCA this morning. Frank Keefe coached the US Olympic team in 84, Yale in the early 90s, and a variety of other places, including the Bermuda team at one point.
He told me to work on the flex in my ankles & knees while kicking (fins help here), and to reach farther out with my arms. Good to have a stroke coach after 20 years.
500 yds @ 8:16 today, roughly the same as my split time from the 1000 before I went off to LA.
