Workout, Day 10

I managed to hit 750 metres today.
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. 3 x 25 m front crawl
8. 3 x 25 m breast stroke
It was tough though. I was beat by the time I finished the third set. I’m not sure why. I felt fine last Thursday. Working out my pecs yesterday certainly didn’t make things easier.
I think I am going to try focusing on times the next time rather than distance. There is no way I am going to hit 1 km at this rate unless I improve my times. I must have improved it somewhat today because I got in 4 more laps, but I need to try out Jeff’s suggestions. I may try the paddles next.

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 5 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on social issues and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left. I recently finished writing a book debunking several capitalism myths. My newest book writing project is on the labour history of Lethbridge.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him.
