    Not too bad tonight. Felt pretty good and swam well for me. My pacing is slowly getting better. I have really been concentrating on keeping my stroke long when I start to get tired, but my kick is still weak.

  2. 8/26 & 8/27

    Apparently it was fast freestyle day on Monday. Not my favorite thing to do but I will do what is asked of me. My wife has trained me to do so.

    More rest than normal with some expected speed. I have been trying hard to concentrate on keeping a long powerful stroke when I start to get tired. On thing that I have figured out is that my kick disappears when I am concentrating on my stroke. More to add to the "needs improvement" novel I am writing about my swimming skills.

    300 swim
    3 x 100 @ 1:40
    2 x 50 back @ 60
    8 x 100 @ 1:45

    I only got in 100 w/d before the high school team took over the pool and was too lazy to get into the therapy pool. I went in this morning to stretch out a bit.

    100 breast r/~30

    Our coach is back from a six week surgery recovery period. Glad to have her back! I consider myself a self motivated person but highly doubt I would train well swimming solo all the time. Bravo to those of you that do. We have had team practices while she was out but it is not the same.
