Swimming, 14th May 2019

And once again…

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

Felt reasonably comfortable today and whilst I had one rep over 50s in the first five whilst I was finding the pace, after that things went pretty well. If anything I think I was probably going a bit too fast with quite a few 47s and 48s, but as long as I’m making progress I guess I won’t worry about that too much. My first fail came at rep eighteen and after that I failed again on rep twenty-one, but I was only just out and for some reason had a very lazy finish so I really ought to have made it. I reckon I’d have failed on the next anyhow though, as I was definitely feeling quite tired at that stage. Anyhow, from there it was easy enough to swim the set out.

It’s interesting how things progress with the USRPT sets. It seems quite common when the set changes that I struggle initially with failures quite early on, but then move forward quite quickly after a while. So let’s hope the next session is better yet.

USRPT distance this year: 118,800m
Total distance this year: 121,350m
