I put in 650 metres today. I thought for this post I would report my swimming in sets rather than totals.
1. 4 x 25 m front crawl
2. 4 x 25 m breast stroke
3. 4 x 25 m front crawl
4. 4 x 25 m breast stroke
5. 4 x 25 m front crawl
6. 4 x 25 m breast stroke
7. 2 x 25 m front crawl
I was trying to hit 750 m today, but I ran out of time â€” fitness swim ends at 08:00. I was rushing to get in the last 6 laps. I probably could have put in 2 or 3 more laps if my goggles hadn’t leaked for the first set.
The left lens has a tendency to leak. I managed to get it situated properly for the remaining sets, but I had to stop after each rep of the first set to empty it out, clear off the fog and readjust.
It’s so frustrating because I was getting into a good rhythm and the beginning and this kind of gets me down. Swimming’s pretty boring. If I can get into a good rhythm and have a good attitude, it can be relaxing and can get my day off to a good start.
I think I am going to have to work on improving my speed soon. I don’t think I am going to be able to hit 1 km with the time constraints I have if I keep going at the same rate. Other than having to stop a few times at the beginning to adjust my goggles, my breaks were just long enough to realign myself, and take a couple of breaths (may 3 or 4 seconds), so the additional laps are going to have to come from improving my time.
Okay, I think I am done now. 🙂
