Thursday swim 4.15km

pretty simple.
10x400@7:00 arr. 6:30-27-31-31-31-31-33-37-39-33
200 cool down.

Very pleased with this set. Gives me confidence in my ability to do a sub hour 3.9km swim (in a wet suit).
Now to hold myself to doing this set weekly and get it quicker!
It's not what you do occasionally that makes a difference, it's that which you do everyday that brings progress.

Personal best days are fab!

Speed and technique day. Approx 2km.
5x100 alt crawl and back, 1:33 crawl, 1:58 back.
Drills!
Count+time 50's 84>79 :) (34 strokes, 15+19, and 45 secs)
More drills.
Sprints.
4x25 arr 19>17
50 arr 37 PB!
100 arr 1:18 PB!

Fists and pull drills with a club mate.
Helped him take 8 seconds off his 100 PB :) He was slipping water off his catch, everything else looked good.
Sending him to the club coach!
Cool down.

I'm feeling like I'm nearing the end of my swim development in terms of IM goals.
It's time to switch development effort to my running. Hard when I feel I can only run safely twice a week.
I can however lower the duration of two of my swim sessions and hit the gym instead.
