Swimming, 9th April 2019

I took my daughter with me to the pool today. There was one lane available so she used it, being faster than me and doing a set that included fly. I had to deal with the chaos the other side of the lane rope 🙁 The pool was far busier than normal, with parents and children wandering all over the place, totally unaware of other swimmers and generally making things quite tricky. My set was the same as yesterday:

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

As before I was actually mostly hitting 48s and even still managed a 49 when I swam into someone on the second length of one rep. I just couldn’t sustain the pace though and eventually had one failure on rep nineteen. It was a struggle to make the last few reps, but I did manage it, so given the difficulties of swimming and that I made more reps than any previous session I feel quite pleased with myself.

USRPT distance this year: 91,850m
Total distance this year: 94,400m
