today i did my second time trial. it was for 500 yds. i was up at sparrows' fart swimming and the pool was full again. only issue i have is that people really should get in touch with the reality of their abilities. if you are in the medium lane it really is not the best idea to swim breast stroke in a slow way for your entire workout. this becomes an issue when you have to circle swim.
i ended up in the fast lane which motivated me to move. i didn't feel too bad after recovering from the flu. slowly but surely i am getting my endurance up. will try for a masters swim practice this week.
did a 500 warmup and then the time trial, with a 100 cool down.
the 500 felt good after yesterdays 1k.
now i have a pretty good baseline.
did a time trial for 1k. felt pretty good. will do a 500 time trial tomorrow and i should have a good idea of how ability to handle fatigue over a 2 day period.
as the week progresses I will start to build up yardage and get back to swimming 4K in an hour.
swam at 530 am and the place was crowded.
