If enough is just right, more than enough is not better.

The title for this blog is taken from a quote by Bob Bowman, Michael Phelps’s swimming coach. I liked the quote, did a bit of Googling and found an old training video of his posted on You Tube, with footage of a young Michael Phelps swimming lengths of freestyle. (Click to view) It is very interesting to watch, with helpful comments from Bob, if you’ve got a spare 20 minutes and can bare the soft rock background music favoured by so many swimming video production companies. Although the hints and tips are aimed at competitive swimmers, there is an overall ethos of experimentation and feeling for the water.
