    Each course has been designed with a certain range of swimmers in mind.  The initial assignments, as written, are set up with a level of complexity that aims for the middle. In some course assignments there are recommendations for Level 1 or Level 2 swimmers, to help you with that.

    Therefore, it is likely that some of these practices, as they are written, will feel a bit too easy or a bit too hard for you. That means you need to adjust the challenge level of the practice set to fit the needs of your body and brain right now. We encourage you to personalize the practice sets in this way.

    In addition to those suggestions given in an assignment you may increase (or decrease) the challenge slightly by:

    • increasing the distance of the repeats
    • increasing the number of rounds
    • simply counting strokes
    • requiring yourself to hold a certain stroke count, consistently
    • adding a Tempo Trainer set to a comfortable (easy) tempo and sync the beep to some part of your stroke.
