what a break through today! It was so odd I've been banging away for years now trying to figure out how to "do" RMAX and CST with little success. These last few cycles I have had a change. Its like something clicked finally and now I'm designing the perfect programs for my needs, I am having constant progress and reaching levels I never thought I could reach. I think I finally "get it." Now that I am done gushing I'll get to the point
Today I had a break through with my effortless swimming program. I call it effortless swimming but it never felt like that was the right name until today. I found myself hitting the perfect pace and I swam and swam and swam (exhale, stroke, kick, stroke it was almost hypnotic). I never lost my breath and I felt like I could have gone forever. I did a total of 26 minutes and no thats nothing ground breaking but what was different was how WELL I did not how MUCH I did. I now realize what it is to get out of my own way. It was such an incredible experience. On the outside it was swimming but internally it was something between a zen state and a trance.
This is just a small part of my big picture and there is so much insight that I've gained lately. Its so hard to describe what it feels like and yet somehow I believe many here know exactly what I am talking about. Its like suddenly seeing color when all your life it was all black and white.
