Quick morning swim before work. Actually I only swam this morning so I could play with my new Garmin Swim Watch. It arrived yesterday. Now I'm still sorting it out so I'm not ready for primetime with the device. Today was just me hitting a whole bunch of buttons and seeing it's basic functions.
550 Yards. Well the first 50 doesn't count since I didn't realize I had to push two buttons to get the thing going.
3x100's Kick. Well 300 yards kick. It was to be 4x100's but I goofed off a bit. Or maybe it was to be 3x100's and I did 200. Can't tell ya for sure anymore.
The More You Know - Oh and as for Swolf? According to Garmin a Swof score is the sum of time for one length and the number of strokes for that length. For example, a 30 seconds plus 15 strookes equals a swolf score of 45. Swolf is a measurement of swimming efficiency and, like golf, the lower score is better.
I'll update this post with more fun info and graphs. Maybe even read the instruction manual to the Garmin Swim to find out more fun facts for you to know. I will admit my first swim not knowing how to use the device was a bit frustrating but I'll learn. Gotta admit don't think my lane mates are gonna like the whistle like sound the thing makes when I start a set. Even I'm a bit annoyed by all the sounds and buttons so far.
