Wed. Feb 27 - Working Some Mid-Distance

Rate this Entry
Decided to change up today and work some mid-distance. It's probably too soon, but I wondered if some of the speed work might carry over to mid-distance. Verdict - maybe. My back is getting stronger. Maybe my free.

I did longer intervals, but tried to swim harder. Also used paddles more today to try and build up strength. T

he comments about me having done the aerobic work are true. In the 500's and 200's, it's not my breathing that is labored, it's my arms that won't pull any faster. Maybe it's part mental or maybe it's just training my arms to go faster.
