Swimming, 23rd February 2018

I could still feel the tiredness in my arms and shoulders today and I knew the pool would be a bit chilly thanks to the cold weather overnight (no, the pool isn’t outdoors, but the building was constructed before insulation was a thing), but I forced myself to go anyhow. It’s only an hour public session today so I cut down the warm-up slightly (though I added another 100m on the swim down when it turned out that I had time):

300m front crawl warm-up
25 x 50m front crawl, target time 57s, rest interval 23s
300m front crawl swim down

I was hitting 48 and 49 seconds fairly consistently until the last three or four when I sank to 50 and 51, but made them all comfortably and achieved my technique goal of always breathing bilaterally.

I could well have three days off now, as the pool is closed on Monday.

USRPT distance this year: 14,900m
Total distance this year: 37,850m
