I am really reading The Mental Athlete, by Kay Porter. I will be using the daily log here to plan and discuss the thoughts, exercises, affirmations, negativity, and changes in my behavior.
Normalcy includes a full coached workout. Thank you Chad and Trish. I discussed my left hand placement including the catch and Chad suggested use the zipper drill in the water. He also showed us a dryland movement/exercise to help improve the high elbow which is more difficult for me to keep without rotating my arm inward and entering the water thumb first.
Place both hands on a flat surface.
Rotate arms outward, leading with the elbow.
I am experiencing soreness in my elbow, right now, when I am doing this exercise.
I also mentioned retraining my nervous system to coincide with the process.
