    HR Postal Swim take 2
    last week I went 5,130 in my 1 hr postal swim
    I felt like I went out too hard, inconsistent
    I over heated
    wore an old FS Pro
    stopped too often and too long
    swam in a lane where I couldn't see the pace clock
    didn't shave and
    started 2 minutes after the main group

    Today I wanted to take another crack at it so see if I could improve
    here's some of the corrections I attempted:
    went out easier, stay steady,& no stopping
    wore a new FS pro
    shaved
    swam in a lane where I could see the pace clock
    asked my counter to signal each 500 &
    even wore my goggle straps over the top of my ears &
    don't over heat

    my counter Beth Rasmussen used tyler blessings new hour swim Iphone app.
    it's really cool

    warm up
    swam easy 50's on 45 for 8 minutes
    got out with 2 minutes to go
    cleaned my gogs and got ready
    my goal was to do 10 x 500 on 5:40

    here's how it went
