Cross Training Day: 1500 Meter Swim

Posted Sep 23 2009 10:41pm
I was the only swimmer at the new pool today! It was 6pm and the rest of the gym was packed but not the pool. I am officially going to refer to it as "MY" pool from here on out since it appears I am the only one who uses it.

I did 60 laps today rather slowly. I really want to focus on my bilateral breathing and form so that is what I did. I broke the sets down into 4x100-meters and then some faster 4x50-meter ones. Good swim. I am still a slow swimmer but my overall fitness level is getting stronger and stronger. So these 1500M swims that used to just cream me are actually becoming enjoyable.

I am actually considering getting a lesson or two to help me with my technique. The hardest part about swimming is that you can't see yourself while you are doing it so it is difficult to make corrections. I have been kicking this around and will see if I eventually need to scratch this itch!

Tomorrow morning we are doing a 50-minute easy run. Rain is in the forecast so it might be a wet run. The good news is that the temperature is going to be around 68 degrees at 5am, bad news is that the humidity is going to be 90% ... hopefully it will be raining!

Thanks for Reading,

Jeff
