Back home now and getting my mind around the task at hand. What are we going to do to continue to improve our speed in the pair? After the racing I have a few ideas to maximise our speed and it has to do with the application of force through the water. My thinking is how do we create a more dynamic drive and really get the flow of the movement to ensure effectiveness. Standards are another area I have been considering. The standards of performance of all the pairs races over the last 15 years makes for interesting reading. There is great learning for comparing and analysing the various results and splits of the many events. What we will do over the next few weeks is to develop a greater understanding of how and hwy various results occurred. Having been involved in the pair since 1998 I have a certain level of understanding, but will challenge the ideas that I have and the assumptions that I have probably made. Out of this will come a very clear strategy for how we can improve and what that improvement will feel and look like. Now that selection has been done it time to focus more fully on the task ahead of us. Munich World Champs are less than 20 weeks away and we have to set our sights on the way we will approach the stage of the preparation and the competitions.
