Swimming, 13th May 2019

Back again for another attempt at:

  • 400m f/c warm-up
  • 24 x 50m f/c, target time 50s, turnaround 70s
  • 200m swim down

I had the pool to myself for a fair while today and at most there were only four swimmers in the water. I felt much more up for this set than I have for a fair while too, though I have been a bit sniffly over the last couple of days.

Anyhow, things went surprisingly well. I was keen to make eleven reps as that’s where I failed last time, but when I reached that far I was still getting back to the wall in the high 48s or low 49s and I just kept going. I was sure it would all go wrong at some point, but in fact I didn’t fail a rep until sixteen and after that I was straight back in with the 48s. I had one more failure on rep twenty-two and then swam the set out.

That feels like a huge improvement on what I’ve been achieving previously with this set, both in terms of where the first failure occurred and only failing twice. I hope I can keep things moving forward next time.

USRPT distance this year: 117,000m
