Wowsers! The pool water was 90F/32C! Not really hot enough to cook a swimmer but hot enough not to want to swim. I didn't have much time to swim anyways. Lap swimming on Tuesday's is a bit limited and I need to get back to work. So I just go for 30 minutes. A little less with some talking to other swimmers. The team that I was swimming with is finishing when I'm starting so I chatted a bit.
Did a mixed 250 of some swimming and pulling.
6x50's Pulling w/ Paddles breathing every 3 going down and every 4 coming back. I did them on 60. (300/550)
2x100's IM on 1:45 (200/750)
8x25's Kick on 30 (200/950)
4x50's Pulling w/ Paddles on 55. (200/1150)
That was it! Time for work. I figure 1,150 yards isn't much but it is something.
My Progress for Go The Distance 2013
Month Total Distance
Jan 6.96 miles (=12,250 yards, =11,201 meters)
Feb 6.25 miles (=11,000 yards, =10,058 meters)
Mar 2.50 miles (=4,400 yards, =4,023 meters)
Apr 7.02 miles (=12,350 yards, =11,293 meters)
May 7.10 miles (=12,500 yards, =11,430 meters)
Jun 4.29 miles (=7,550 yards, =6,904 meters)
Total 34.12 miles (=60,050 yards, =54,910 meters)
I'm really determined to swim at least 7.25 miles for the month. Even if I swim a few 1,000 yards quick swims like today. I can easily fit it in. In fact I'm going to swim tomorrow, Saturday and Sunday for sure and maybe more! I hope.
