So, first time back to my USRPT set since before I went on holiday over a month ago…
400m front crawl warm-up
25 x 50m front crawl, target time 51s, rest interval 24s
200m front crawl swim down
I’d already succeeded at two of these back-to-back, so just needed another to drop the time down another second. I expected it to be hard though, and I wasn’t disappointed. Times started off surprisingly quick with many of the early reps hitting 47s or 48s, even some 46s ones here and there. By rep 14 I just couldn’t maintain it though and I had to skip number 15. Things went fairly well from there, staying under 50s until number 23 when I was over 51s. I skipped rep 24, then finished off with a 48s rep.
I’m a bit disappointed not to have made it, but on the other hand most of the reps I completed were pretty good so it’s not a total disaster.
USRPT distance this year: 52,300m
Total distance this year: 127,450m
