Swimming, 18th April 2019

I definitely wasn’t feeling good today. Nothing obviously wrong, but a mild upset stomach left me less than raring to go. I don’t like breaking the habit however, so off I went again:

  • 400m f/c warm-up
  • 24 x 50m f/c, target time 50.5s, turnaround 75s
  • 200m swim down

The pool was actually quite busy today compared with earlier in the week, with four or five people swimming lengths and a number of children contriving to get themselves in the way. Fortunately they didn’t have much effect on my session, but I still managed a fail on rep six and then again on rep twelve before swimming the set out, even managing a 45s rep for the last one (I was feeling quite tired by very determined not to have another failure at that point).

So, not brilliant, but I am at least keeping the rep times down where they ought to be, and the fact that I managed to pull a 45s final rep out of the bag when I was in fact feeling very tired is actually quite pleasing.

Still, it’s about time I got this set finished off, so I hope to be having another go tomorrow.

USRPT distance this year: 100,550m
