Occasionally, I feel as if I am in a “zone” and all elements of my forward stroke are operating efficiently and effectively.
Then: an element of the stroke deteriorates i.e. not pushing with the legs as much, not rotating to the fullest extent feasible, not having a smooth catch with the paddle or not reaching as far forward as is practicable, etc.
Two or three questions:
- Is this normal? Does this happen to you?
- I can correct this periodically by ceasing to paddle for 30 seconds to a minute and then resuming. How do you adjust?
