"At least I got a swim in" - I'm so sick of saying that. Due to work I couldn't swim yesterday or this morning. I actually couldn't swim with the "swim team" this morning so I had to do a lap swim on my own. Which wasn't ideal. After work and lunch the pool was closed from 1-3 for volleyball so I had to wait to lap swim at 3. Just in time for the daily thundershowers to roll in on the swamp state. Luckily I was able to miss the storms but since I forgot a battery for the clock I had to wing a workout. Which was good since the water was the hottest I've ever felt a pool before. I've been in cooler whirlpools then this. Never mind the film of suntan lotion from the volleyballers. OY! Now I do have my Garmin Swim "watch" but still playing around with it to get what I want to see. So far with very little success. Started off easy with a mixed 500 warm up. It was 200 swim, 100 pull without paddles and 200 w/ paddles. Then did 3x100's with paddles pulling. (800)
8x50's Kick on 1:10. So I can use the pace clock when I'm drilling with the watch. But then what is the point since I have to enter my laps manually. I even tried to make a custom screen but couldn't get laps/interval and last split. For example would it be so hard for it to read out 50 yards, 1:10 and 55. With 50 being what I swim, the 1:10 the pace clock for me to see when to go and lastly the pace/split of my last 50? That is all I want. Need to figure that out. Whenever I pause at the wall all clocks stop and I can't see the main clock screen unless I end the set. Grrr…(400/1200)
I did a 50 swim to play with the custom feature. (50/1250)
150 Swim still playing with the clock (150/1400)
2x100's IM (200/1600) Speaking of IM and the Garmin Shit Watch, I mean Swim, it doesn't seem to read my strokes very well. Now I know my breaststroke sucks but... So a 1,600 yard lap swim. Guess some swimming is better then nothing? Only 28,747 yards to go for this month. My goal is to get to 150 miles by September! Which might be tough with my work. I'm working a bunch of mornings filling in at work. Oh well I can try. Plus I need to keep in some sort of swim shape.
