    1000m

    750m front crawl - was going to do it all in one go, but the pool is too hot and I got a headache.

    250m with hand paddles after a rest

    I keep telling myself I'm going to slow down the last 200. I end up sprinting the last lap. :D

    Big swim day yesterday

    masters swim in the morning - another one with all the kicks

    300m warm up
    200m kick
    200m free build

    4xs through:
    • 4x25 sprint kick
    • 4x25 free fast
    • 100 IM

    100m cooldown


    Then took my new tri kit and sports out to the lake for a test swim after work. Tri kit was great, figured out the bra was too small cup wise, so I'm getting the next size up. I like to unzip the tri top when I get on the bike to air things out a bit and it was all rather gratuitous. Need the next size up apparently for more coverage.

    2500 yards in an hour and 6 minutes, which is good enough to make a half ironman swim cutoff (2112 yards in an hour 10 min). Granted, this was in a really calm lake, but also it was with no wet suit, which gives me a not insignificant improvement on speed. Of course, OWS is a crap shoot, so who knows what race day conditions would actually be like.

    4300m for the day

    back to the regular distance last night.
    6.4km
    Thinking about pushing further on Saturday.
    With these trips to China I have nothing but time to kill one the weekends. So I might as well make good use of it.

    500m

    just a mix of what my legs were happy with this morning. Plus, the pool is still rather warm.

    Hard to get a good swim on when the pool is 88 or higher. Body gets overheated too fast.
    I wad loving it one winter morning when the heater cut out during the night. The pool was 73 in the morning. :D

    That's why many people got out after 1 or 2 laps.
    A couple weeks later they had a new rule. 77 minimum to allow people to swim. Apparently it is a rule set by the insurance company. Concern over hypothermia.

    1600m

    400m relaxed
    200m breathing drills to 13
    400m with hand paddles
    100m legs only
    100m arms only
    200m relaxed
    200m medley

    pool was a lot cooler today and I am putting more focus on swimming over running for the next few months. Trying to get back up to my 2-2.5km most days. A mile nearly killed me this morning!

    Am still in awe of @fishgutzy - I just cannot get that amount of time in a pool!
