My Team
I swim on a small team (Madison Titans) with 4 regulars and a couple others that can't make the morning workout. On Saturdays and occasional weekdays, I drop by HSA in Huntsville for a swim in the big pool.

  1. 12.11.12 - Tuesday workout

    Swam w/ Danny, Dave, Dave, Dave and Keith. Got this message yesterday:

    Congratulations! You have achieved your goal for Go The Distance 2012
    My goal pace: 710.96 miles required as of today to reach my goal by the end of the event
    My actual current pace: 752.25 miles as of today

    At times, I didn't think I would make it. Good to be done with a couple weeks to spare. 800 miles is possible but a stretch. I'm not sure I would want to do much more than 800.

    Tried to go under the 1:15 pace and made 2:15. Splits relative to the 1:15 pace: -:03, -:05, -:10, -:15, -:20, -:22.5. I think that is about a 1:13 pace. Dave pulled and kept even w/ me the whole time. That helped keep me going at times.
