Thursday's Swim Report - An Average Day Of A Swimmer & Other Swim Bits’s 2014 Tech Suit Review is Out

20 Minute Lunch Break Swim Set

My body is beat, my mind is tired but yet I had to swim.  Just to get out of my daily grind.  Don't get me wrong I love being a Personal Trainer and Group X Instructor but I do miss that feeling of being alone in my workout in the pool.  So when I had some free time this afternoon I headed to the pool.  Mind you I only swam for like 20 minutes.  But it was a quick mental health vacation that I needed.

Warm Up

200 Swim

200 Kick

The Only Real Set:

8x100's Pulling on 1:30

1    1:14.0     100     1:14
2    1:14.9     100     1:15
3    1:14.9     100     1:15
4    1:15.4     100     1:15
5    1:12.1     100     1:12
6    1:12.4     100     1:12
7    1:11.5     100     1:12
8    1:13.6     100     1:14

Not the best of times but hey, I swam something. 

My Progress for Go The Distance 2014
Month    Total Distance
Jan    2.76 miles (=4,850 yards, =4,435 meters)
Feb    4.15 miles (=7,300 yards, =6,675 meters)
Mar    3.72 miles (=6,550 yards, =5,989 meters)
Total    10.63 miles (=18,700 yards, =17,099 meters)

Well at least I'm ahead of Jan!  Which isn't much but hey.  The pool near work will reopen next Wednesday so hopefully I'll get in some quick 20 - 30 minute swims from time to time.  Normally that pool has activities almost all day but might be able to squeeze in a few swims.  Some day's I pretty much stay at the gym all day with breaks in between I just read or chill so maybe a quick swim will be great for my mental and physical health.
