I'm spending most of July in Berlin with Martin, enjoying the city and the summer. Thanks to lucky circumstances (Anna getting sponsored by the gym Elexia and needing a buddy), I get to train alot as well.
Martin does the job as a bossy coach very well, ordering Anna and me around, making us do numerous laps underwater and even train static. The focus has been on technique (especially in DNF), sub-max dives and leg strength. And it has been paying off. I did another 150m DYN in training which felt a lot easier than before.
This weeks schedual looked like this:
Monday - Rest
Tuesday - Swimming, some DYN and DNF medium long dives and technique
Wednesday - STA and DNF technique
Thursday - Rest
Friday - little bike trip with some running
Saturday- DYN: 2x50m, 75m, 2x100m, 85m, 50m
Sunday - STA: two warm-ups and then 5'12, and spinning class later today
