Second all-day class for Lynn. Thomas taught the class 10:00am-4:45pm. By the end of the class Lynn was ringing backstrokes with occasional handstrokes.
- We started from the beginning, with pull-offs, backstrokes only, and handstrokes only.
- Much of the class focused on handstrokes: straight pull, quick followthrough, relaxed, elbows flexed. The motion is virtually identical with the backstroke motion, except for adding the catch, release, and pickup.
- Pulling the bell off the stay, up close to the balance, then back down onto the stay, very slowly; on the 6, 4, and 2.
- Lynn pulled all backstrokes, adding occasional handstrokes and gradually working up to roughly every third handstroke.
Next class for Lynn will be during the week of Oct01Mo.
