Once again this already short session was delayed at the start, so again I just got into the water and got on with things, but for what felt like the first time this week it actually went really well from the outset and I managed to cover 2,000m front crawl and still had a few minutes in hand. Same story on the technique front; thinking about head position, body rotation and stroke length.
Sadly it looks like I won’t make 50km this month, but I’ve had a couple of below average days and missed one completely so I guess that’s no surprise. On the positive side I hope I’ll make at least 45km, leaving me in a fairly good position to reach my target of half a million metres for the year some time late in November.
Total distance for the month: 31,000m
Total distance for this year: 446,200m
Distance compared to annual target: 40,200m ahead
