Swam 1400m today, I had to change lane cause I was too fast for the people in the slowest lane.
In the other lane there was a lady and a man. They were really nice with me and the woman must have been horrified by my technique, she kept on giving me tips and tricks to get better.  :P

I'm surprised. I swam a lot when I was young but I had totally forgot how fun it was. I'm really enjoying  it.  :thumbsup:
Challenge it because it is unreachable.

Bump. 

First time in the pool in close to 6 months.  And first real training type exercise in probably 6 weeks.

1500 yds.  42 min.  Did a 100yd warmup first.  Then the 1500. 

I thought the pool was going to close for a swim team practice but they let me use one lap. 

So I did drop down 50's for 5 reps until I did not make my time.   I refuse to post that time for fear of wens laughing at me.

You don't have to post the time for me to make fun of you  :P


I'm assuming you started on a :30 second sendoff, that sounds about right for making 5 reps ;)
Do you think we're gonna make it? / I don't know unless we try / you could sit here scared to move / or we could take them by surprise

Got in the pool last night for the first time in 3 years, I HATE swimming.  Did some laps, probably 20 total, with several rest breaks between them.  This is gonna take a little while to get back into shape to be able to do a sprint tri and not drown.  Baby steps.

20 laps on the first day is pretty good.  Read this thread and the drill thread. The advice here really helped me get back

snuck in a medium level swim during instead of lunch today
 
45min swim (lsd)--I don't know the distance, but probably around 1.5miles
 
8x50 one arm drills (25yds each arm) with no rest between sets.  I planned on 10 sets but my form collapsed on the 8th set.
 
100 sprint
 
200 cool down.
 
dizzy

Did a total of 1000 meters yesterday, lots of rest breaks. I really have to get some type of coaching if I plan on doing any type of distance.

Pro tip.  Don't lift weights before swimming.  It might lead to a big fail.

You should feel better afterwards, it's a stretching sport ;)

I like swimming followed by lifting. The other way around today hurt big time.  My shoulders were killing me m

500 meters last night and some lifting. It has been awhile since I last did weight training and now I remember how much I liked it.
