I am now going to expose myself on my blog. Watch closely.... .. Okay, no, not that way. I'm going to post my swim times. Something I have never done before because I am slower than molasses in wintertime. But here goes.
Warm-up: 200 m - 4:26
4 x 100m: 3:01, 2:47, 2:48, 2:55
4 x 50 m : 1:30, 1:17, 1:23, 1:33
Cool down: 100 m - 2:48
Total: 1900m 57:04
That's 1.18 miles in under an hour folks. For me, that's fast. What this means is that I would absolutely make the swim cut-off in a 1/2 Ironman.
2 weeks ago I was swimming 100 m at: 4:31, 3:54, 3:37, 3:44. I have knocked almost a minute off my time and I'm just swimming. I have not even started doing drills yet.
Today while I was swimming something happened and it was truly amazing. I was doing my 1000m and it seemed like I kept bumping into the walls. The length seemed to be much shorter today even though I was in the same pool I always swim in. When I saw that I did 1000m in 31 minutes I was excited. What I think is that my pull is getting much stronger. I can really feel the movement when I pull and now it only takes me 16 strokes to get 25 m. When I started it was 24 I think. Wow, I feel good.
What a great way to start the week after such a crappy weekend.......
Don't really have a whole lot to write about today, so it will probably be a bunch of unconnected ramblings. Tomorrow is my birthday. ...
