Always Check Your Goggles!!
It has happened to Michael Phelps too!!
Do your goggles fit?
Test: A method to test whether swim goggles fit well or not is to start by holding the goggles
over your eyes and then press into your eye sockets with your fingers in a firm, but gentle manner. Upon letting go, the goggles should stay in place if they fit correctly. If not, find another pair and repeat the process.

25 Common Mistakes That Swimmers Make That Undermines Their Training:
Under certain circumstances and in certain situations, the athletic aspirations that some swimmers may have are almost entirely dashed. They raise their hands to the sky and ask why oh why do the results they had hoped for elude them so, without fairly judging whether they genuinely made the necessary effort to achieve them or focused sufficiently on their training.
Below is a list of some of their most common mistakes:
There are countless reasons for these mistakes, some of which I list below. For the most part, they can be avoided or their effects reduced.

Are You Training Both Hard and Smart?
But in a culture of “I want it right noooow” what are the immediate benefits of hard work?
You Will Be Successful In The Pool When....
Gonna keep it sweet and easily drinkable today.
You’ll be successful in the pool when…
You stop caring what other people think of your goals.
I know we all say that we don’t care what others say or think, but let’s be honest, we do.
We agonize over the opinions of others, wondering what they would think, what they might think about us.
Will they snicker and judge when we do an extra rep on our own at the end of a tough set? Will they whisper when we run stairs before practice? Or how about when we know we should be going to the gym to do our dryland, but feel embarrassed because we aren’t deadlifting 300 pounds and wearing fluorescent compression gear?
Think of it this way, if nobody was around, if there were no one to judge, what would you do?
Would you train harder?
Would you do the little extra things that separate good from great?
Would you dare to lead?
You’re willing to commit yourself.
Keeping one foot in, and one foot out is the safe way to go about your goals. By never fully investing yourself you avoid the risk of being disappointed if you don’t succeed. Instead, you are left with the false comfort of…
“I could have achieved such-and-such if I had really wanted to.”
Is that much better than giving your all and then coming up short?
Of course not.
You’ll never know what you are capable of until you make a legit effort at trying to achieve some sweet stuff.
You stop dreaming and you start doing.
Thinking about greatness is fun.
Heck, it’s addicting.
Sitting around planning, learning, endlessly strategizing might feel like you are making progress in a tangible way, but you aren’t until you are doing something.
Make no mistake, if you want to make an impact in the sport of swimming, whatever that means for you, you will need to be in a constant state of doing.
Of moving forward…
Of putting action to your dreams…
Of not only having goals, but of living them day in and day out.
