Titanic Turns

The goal for today's swim session was to improve my "tumble" turns.  Well I failed.  Having read  Gary Van der Meulen's article on tumble turns ( I had a better idea of what I should be attempting to do.  So after 8x200m of front crawl I moved over to the deep end of the now empty 'general swimming' half of the pool. At this point I hold my left arm by my side, pull with the right, push and try to somersault.  Failure. I tried a lot of times, but each and every time I ended up destined for the bottom of the pool. Heading down much like the titanic.  Oh well there is always tomorrow.

Distance swum: ~2000m
Goal for tomorrow: more of the same.
