Swim Team or Not to Swim Team?

Posted Sep 24 2012 5:59pm

This morning I spent sometime working in excel.  I am trying make a spreadsheet that will tell me my total miles I am running and cycling and what my average pace is; by day, week, month and year.  I hope it works out!

I did not get out on my bike ride until one o’clock today.  Having to cut the ride short; I biked 11.31 miles at an average pace of 4:02.

Today I tackled the pool as well.  I ended up swimming .625 miles in 20 minutes.  It has been a while since I hopped in the pool.  I am hoping it will only take a month to get my mile back under 27 minutes.


The boys swim coach offered me a spot on the team.  There are three other “master” swimmers on the team.  I obviously will not compete but I will be doing the workouts the boys do.    Unfortunately I will not be able to get away with swimming only freestyle.  I just hope my butterfly does not make me look like a drowning victim!

I am seriously considering this option.  I feel swimming made me a better runner.  When I cross train with swimming I am able to breathe more efficiently.  Also if I can tweak my technique I should drop my swim times in the Mullet Man Triathlon in April.  

This week I have two run dates!  Greg is going to join me tomorrow for a quick 7.5 miles and friend Anna is going to run 7 miles with me on Wednesday.  I am super excited about both runs.
