Wedensday's Swim Report - What Are Those Swimmers Up To?

How Joel Lost His Swim Groove Back

90 minutes in the water is like a new record for me.  Well at least over the last few months of my

quick easy swims.  I felt great even if the water was 88F.  Did some stretched out swims or garbage yardage.  Since I didn't have to work this morning I got to the pool swam with another swimmer for a quick main set then stayed and did some fun yardage on my own.

Then I did a 200 kick to cool off a bit. (200/1800)

100 easy kick (100/2900)

500 Swim.  Easy 75 then fast 25.  Damn it.  My Garmin Swim doesn't show this part.  I know I did it.  I was dying.  I guess I hit the wrong button and didn't save it.  F!  (500/3400)  The whole point of 10x50's, 10x50's and a 500 was to see if I could hold a pace for the 1,500.  Looking at those 50's I can say I can't.  I just wish I had that 500 to look at.  Oh well I can do this set again on Sunday.

So 3,400 yard workout.  The longest swim in ages and it felt good.  The water was hot but I felt okay.  Yeah, tired and sore but okay.

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    9.57 miles (=16,850 yards, =15,408 meters)
Total    39.40 miles (=69,350 yards, =63,414 meters)

Today's swim got me closer to my goal of swimming 10 miles this month.  Which isn't a lot but compared to my swims this year it's a good milestone to reach.  I pretty much have the day off so I'm so tempted to hit the pool at the next lap swim time.  I know I can't swim tomorrow.  Oh well we will see.
