first water

Monday swim sessions are brutal. This is my long day. Long, anyways, for me. 400m is about all I can will myself to attempt. Sets of distances longer than this would probably cause my form to fall apart or me to pass out. And honestly, I probably could pass out. Even 400m without a lifeguard to watch me is pushing it. After turns I am eye-bulging gasping for air, starting at about 250m.

da numbers:

  • 200m free/zipperswitch
  • 400m free
    • came in at 6:25 – this is :25 quicker than last week, though “quick” might not be the right word
  • 200m free
    • came in at 3:08
  • 50m zipperswitch
  • 200m free
    • came in at 3:03
  • 100m free
    • came in at 1:27
  • 50m zipperswitch
  • 100m free
    • came in at 1:22
  • 2 x 50m free drill with dolphin kick
  • 2 x 50m zipperswitch with dolphin kick
  • 100m dolphin kick w/ short fins

I wasn’t paying attention to rest intervals so much. My focus was to get decent times logged for these distances while keeping a comfortable pace between sets. This has generally been my plan for days that involve longer distance sets.
