Thurs. Aquathlon day.
morning pool session.
more butterfly drills, actually managed 2 lengths of reasonably neat fly
some backstroke stuff
5x50 off 60secs accelerating 44>38, free.
200 steady free cool down
1 mile warm up jog <8mins
4:07 swim(300-40?m), minute-ish transition, 6:30 ish mile. And I was supposed to be taking it easy. Even though there was only 10 entrants I wasn't giving up my 3rd place if I could help it!
Came out of the water, 4th, 17 secs behind the first guy (who is fast) after a great draft from the 2 mermaid girls who DNF'd. One runner caught me at half way, another came close...
2 more laps of the lake afterwards, one fast, one slow.(also did escort duty for the junior event swim.) It was enough. knackered!
Nice buzz even from this tiny little event
Can I class it as a first podium? or do you actually need a podium for that...
(just did the maths on my swim pace, somewhere between 1:23 and 1:13/100m...I like wetsuits and drafting
It's not what you do occasionally that makes a difference, it's that which you do everyday that brings progress.
