Two really positive things showed up as the coaches had their post meet wrap-up meeting last night at an undisclosed location.
The first was that the people that have worked really smart and hard while taking coaching feedback performed really well during the meet. Strange how that correlation works 🙂
The second was that the coaches were able to challenge a couple of people to step out of their comfort zone to do different events or events that have not swum in a while. We have talked in the past that we will never ask you to swim something you cannot physically do, but we will try to get you challenge yourself mentally to get through those barriers.
In both cases, the success rate was very high. 32 season-best times. A number of people reaching outside their comfort zone to swim something else. This is a learning process for all of us.
Relay exchanges were better that last week, but we will need to keep working on our turns, specifically our freestyle turns.
