Swimming, 21st June 2018

First attempt at a new target time today:

400m front crawl warm-up
25 x 50m front crawl, target time 52s, rest interval 23s
200m front crawl swim down

I expected this to be tough and I certainly feel tired now. All but one of the first ten reps were under 50s, but though I had a few over 50s after that there weren’t too many. Only three were over 51s, and I just made the entire set by the skin of my teeth, two of those being 51.9<something>.

Quite pleased with myself for having done so well.

I did notice that my right hand is doing something strange during the pull phase today. I suspect my wrist is rotating, driving my arm slightly in and then out again just after it passes the line of my shoulders. I might have to see if one of the other coaches can watch and tell me exactly what is going on there.

USRPT distance this year: 46,150m
Total distance this year: 102,100m
